Business support

We want to let you spend the majority of your time doing what you do best; running your business. We offer a wide range of services to help you do so.

Bookkeeping and VAT

Our bookkeeping team free you from the drudgery of manually recording your business activity.


We take your invoices and paperwork, and using the latest software, digitise your records and produce the accounting entries needed to calculate and submit your VAT returns, as well as provide the basis for your management or year end accounts.


As well as saving you time, you can also feel reassured that our experience and knowledge is being applied to ensure that your bookkeeping and VAT returns are compliant. We are able to assist you in correcting any VAT errors, offer guidance on invoicing and record keeping, and generally support your day to day business activities.


We are also able to assist our clients with VAT disputes - we can deal with HMRC on your behalf, defend your corner and ensure that the process is a less stressful one.

Company formation and getting started

Setting up in business is very exciting, but also can be daunting. We're here to help guide you through it all:


  • What structure to take? Limited company? Sole trader? Partnership / LLP?
  • Company formation
  • Registration with HMRC
  • How to keep accounting records and what software to use
  • Deadlines to meet
  • Developing a business plan
  • Produce cash flow forecasts
  • VAT registration and advice on when you might need or want to
  • Setting up a PAYE scheme and paying yourself / employees
  • Anything else that comes up - we deal with all manner of queries and have seen a lot over the years!


We love acting for new startups and feel really pleased that we can add value, give direction, and be a reassuring presence as you get started. We'll still be there for you as your business grows and you face new challenges, with the added benefit of knowing all about you, your business, and what you aim to achieve.

Registered office

Our registered office service is taken up by many of our clients.


By using our office address as the registered office for your company, you can enjoy several benefits:

  • Paperwork - all the important letters will come to us. We can forward on anything that you need.
  • This means that HMRC and Companies House correspondence come straight to your accountants, ensuring that deadlines and notices are not missed.
  • Privacy - by using our office as a service address, your home address does not need to be shown on public records.

Company secretarial

We can assist our clients with many of the commonly found company secretarial tasks:


  • Annual Confirmation Statements
  • People with Significant Control (PSC) notifications
  • Share transfers and issues
  • Preparation of meeting agends and minutes
