Cloud Accounting and Business Support Services

We encourage business owners to get involved in the financial aspects of their business, and the easiest way to do this is to use cloud-based bookkeeping. We ensure that you have Xero set up in the best way for your business and provide training and guidance in using it to meet your statutory obligations (VAT, payroll, CIS) but also to give you insight into your business’s performance.

Management accounts and information

Obtaining regular reliable management information is vital to the continued success of any business. Xero gives you access to reports which help you know your business and plan ahead. These management reports mean that you always have reliable and accurate information on which to base your business decisions.


Running a payroll can be time consuming and complicated and divert resources from the core activities of your business. With the implementation of Real Time Information, HMRC require information on or before the date of payment to the employee. For small businesses we use Xero Payroll and can either show you how to run it yourself or do it for you.

Bookkeeping, VAT compliance and Making Tax Digital for Income Tax

We encourage business owners to keep their own records using Xero, but provide support as required, whether it’s detailed help with reconciliation or a quick check of a VAT Return.

Making Tax Digital for Income Tax is scheduled to apply to sole traders and landlords from April 2024. This will mean that most businesses will have to make quarterly returns to HMRC using software. We can support you with these additional reporting requirements.


Anyone in the construction industry who uses subcontractors is legally required to recister with HMRC as a contractor, to verify each subcontractor, to pay subcontractors net of CIS deductions, to report deductions to HMRC each month and send monthly statements to subcontractors. Xero makes this extra administration very straightforward.

Personal Tax (Self Assessment)

Everyone who is subject to taxation needs professional advice and support if they are to optimise their tax position and ensure they meet the compliance requirements. We can provide you with year-round advice on all aspects of personal taxation.

HMRC Investigations and Enquiries

Being the subject of a tax investigation or enquiry by HMRC can be a stressful and worrying experience. We have experience in dealing with HMRC investigations, whether they are enquiries into an individual’s Tax Return, more detailed enquiries into a company’s affairs including VAT and Payroll. If you are the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support.

Tax protection

To guard against the risk on an HMRC investigation we provide an annual insurance policy for a small annual fee in order to protect you and your business from unexpected costs. Most inquiries result in substantial additional accountancy work.
