Products & Services

read moreIn many cases, it makes sound commercial sense to use accountants for bookkeeping as well as oversight and preparation of the formal accounts and reports. We understand the demands on small businesses and consequently have a solution to suit all budgets and types of business.

The benefits include efficiency as work is not duplicated or doesnt need to be double checked and our bookkeping or support ultimately feeds into the statutory accounts process with the assurance that everything is monitored and checked by our fully qualified Accountants in our London office.

For those clients who prefer to do their bookkeeping in-house, we dovetail with your bookkeeper to add additional bookkeeping and accounting services to help enhance financial reporting and planning. Another option is for clients or bookkeepers to input data directly into our online accounts software portal, ensuring that our accounts team can offer live support and advice as soon as data is entered.

Bookkeeping is an essential prerequisite for preparing management accounts, a vital tool for businesses which we strongly recommend should be prepared on a monthly or quarterly basis. Monitoring your business progress and performance against your budget as well as improving your ability to chase trade debtors and keep track of suppliers invoices all start with good and complete bookkeeping.
Business Plan
read moreOur financial experience is available to you to help you put together a well considered business plan which will allow you to plan and formulate realistic and accurate forecasts. We also have legal and marketing consultants in-house to assist with key non-financial aspects of a well rounded business plan.
read moreWe are able to provide good value support for small business payroll production.

We often get asked about the cost of payroll for small businesses, specifically if it's worth outsourcing, and the answer is yes.

If you have reached the stage where you can no longer manage payroll in house then it's time to find an accountancy firm to do the job for you at an affordable price.

Outsourcing payroll means that you can maintain control while delegating administration to a professional to ensure accuracy in the job as your workforce starts to multiply.
Corporation tax
read moreWith corporation tax reliefs and rates changing on an annual basis, its important to make the most of all of the exemptions, allowances and deductions available for tax returns calculations.

Our specialist company tax accountants cover all aspects of technical tax guidance your small business may need. We spend time with you to understand your circumstances, minimising tax and the best way to structure your business for growth and risk mitigation.
VAT returns
read moreIf your annual turnover exceeds the current VAT threshold then you will need to register with HMRC for VAT and complete and submit VAT returns to HMRC, usually quarterly.

Please do get in touch if your business needs help with VAT or an efficient and VAT service to go along with your accounts. If you have a VAT inspection or some kind of issue or dispute, we can also help with that.

read moreI'm the administrator of a French media group that has two subsidiaries in the UK. I heared about Accoutants & Legal by doing research on the Internet while I was looking for accountants in the UK.
Its manager and I quickly closed a deal on how we could work together, especially as far as annual accounts return are concerned.
The accountant I then worked with was very fast in his handling the datas I sent him, keeping me constantly updated on the way his work progressed and asking me perfectly clear questions, always accurate, which helped us to have clear accounts in a very fast time period.
I am really happy to work with the people in Accounts & Legal whose E-mails, it's rare enough to be pointed out, are not only professionnal but also friendly.
