Sometimes the best way to improve your competitive position in the marketplace is through a merger or acquisition or it may be that you are looking for an exit strategy from your business. We have experience in both these areas and would be happy to discuss any plans you may have. In more difficult times it may be that you need to restructure and consolidate to protect your profitable sectors and we have worked with businesses to develop and implement such plans.
We can relieve you and your staff of an enormous burden by taking care of your bookkeeping and accounting needs, whether this may be just on a temporary basis until you are in a position to undertake this function yourself, or on a more permanent basis. We also offer isolated book-keeping services such as assistance with the completion of quarterly VAT returns, assistance with payroll processing and payment of sub-contractors.
The preparation of your annual accounts is a function we undertake with confidentiality and diligence. We can undertake this either at your premises or more usually the records are brought to us.
Most people who start up in business do so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through, not necessarily because they are experts in the legal, financial, and fiscal aspects of running a business. Indeed, these matters can often seem daunting, and even off-putting, to the budding entrepreneur. The good news is that you do not need to be an expert in these fields to succeed in business. All you need is the support of a team of trained experts. Bring us your business ideas and we'll help you to evaluate them in a constructive and realistic manner. We will help take you through the various business vehicles that you can use to run your business, from sole trader, partnership, LLP (Limited Liability Partnership) to Limited Company and assist with all the regulatory requirements to get your business idea up and running.
The last thing you need as a busy business owner is to use up valuable time and resources making sure you are complying with the Companies Act. Moreover, with company legislation changing at the rate it does, you need to be sure you are fully aware of how the changes affect you and your fellow directors. We can give you complete peace of mind in this area by carrying out your company secretarial duties for you. This can all be executed electronically with Companies House and we have the facilities in place to do this.
Whether yours is a new or a mature business, ensuring that you have the necessary and optimum finance package in place is essential for achieving and maximizing your objectives. Indeed, one of the most common causes of business failure is badly structured or inadequate financing. We assist with cash flow projections, review of business sectors and profit forecasts. We will liaise with the bank with you and help to analyse options.
Administering your payroll can be time consuming and burdensome, diverting energy and resources from the core activities of your business. And the task is made all the more difficult by the growing complexity of taxation and employment legislation and the accompanying regime of penalties for non-compliance. We have dedicated staff who can relieve you of this burden by providing a comprehensive and confidential payroll service. We operate payroll facilities for both NI and ROI. We will assist with all aspects of payroll including Real Time Information (RTI) processing and also the new pension requirements being introduced over the next few years.
Everyone knows that a successful business must plan ahead, but all too often the pressures of keeping the business going on a daily basis mean that strategic planning is not given the attention it needs. Every business owner needs a planning adviser who has the time and space to take the long view and advise on appropriate courses of action. With years of experience advising the local business community we have a wealth of experience and expertise for you to draw on.
