Accountancy Services

Our core Accountancy Services consist of...

Annual Accounts Preparation

We can...

  • Prepare accounts to help in completion of self-assessment tax returns;
  • Produce financial statements to file at Companies House and abridged accounts to ensure the minimum amount of your financial information is made public.

Accounts are prepared to agreed timescales and deadlines.

But we can do more than just report the history of what's already happened...

  • Identify areas where we can assist in minimising your tax liability;
  • Identify areas of the business that give you the most opportunity to make improvements;
  • Use the accounts to help you measure where you are in meeting your goals and what actions you need to take.

We take the time to explain your accounts to you so that you understand what is going on financially within your business, helping you to plan for the future.

Audit

The main reasons why you will be required by law to have a statutory audit are...

  1. You are a PLC or a banking, insurance or finance company (or a subsidiary of one of these);
  2. You are required by your professional or trade organisation to have your accounts audited;
  3. Your shareholders do not agree to opting out of the audit.
  4. For accounting periods starting on or after 1 January 2016 audit thresholds are aligned with the new qualification as a small company, meaning companies (including LLP's) are exempt from having a statutory audit if they meet 2 of the 3 following conditions...

    • Turnover below £10.2 million
    • Balance sheet total below £5.1 million
    • Less than 50 employees

    For accounting periods starting before 1 January 2016 and ending on or after 1 October 2012 small company, meaning companies (including LLP's) are exempt from having a statutory audit if they meet 2 of the 3 following conditions...

    • Turnover below £6.5million
    • Balance sheet total below £3.26 million
    • Less than 50 employees

    Most subsidiary companies are also exempt from audit where their parent company guarantees their liabilities.

    For accounting periods ending on or before 30 September 2012 an audit is required where your turnover exceeds £6.5million or your gross assets exceed £3.26 million or the company is part of a group that exceeds those limits.

We can advise you if you need an audit and if not, you can save on accountancy fees!

Whilst we are not registered auditors, we work closely with a registered practice in which we prepare the full financial statements for them to audit. From our experience, whilst the client receives two separate bills this tends to lead to a reduced overall fee for clients due to the fact that our charge out rates are generally lower than those of registered audit practices.
