Bookkeeping


Our Bookkeeping Service is highly professional and offering differing levels of support for all types of businesses, from sole traders to medium sized companies. This service is available with erms on a monthly fee basis, guaranteed to provide our clients with a virtual accounts department, thus ensuring that at all times your finances are fully up to date. This assists you, the client , in maintaining more prime time to concentrate on running and maintaining your business.


VAT Administration


Businesses need to annually register for VAT, as their business expands, although there are those that do not realise this fact.


Those that do, fully understand the additional work required in this function, and the time consumed in so doing. We look after this function for you, covering every aspect of accounting, thus ensuring that your accounts are fully prepared and on time, since time lapses can be very costly. Various items of course, can or may not be claimed against VAT, and many businesses are still not aware of these rules, for example in relation to differing rates applied in respect of charges on fuel etc..


Regardless of whether you are computerised or just maintain an “Ins” & “Outs” drawer, we will process your returns on a regular basis.


Poor cash management often results in an inability to meet VAT bills, this often results again in late payments and costly penalties. We remove the strain of that burden from you, ensuring that VAT liabilities are covered before they have been finally calculated.
