How Your Financial Controller Can Help:

Annual Accounts

What's this?

Every Limited company and LLP has to file statutory accounts with Companies House and HMRC annually. We will prepare the accounts in statutory format, review them with you and submit them once you are happy. The Companies House and HMRC submission deadline is 9 months after the year end. We have an internal deadline of 3 months to file all of our clients year end accounts, making them more up-to-date and useful for you and giving you plenty of time to pay the corporation tax.

VAT Returns

What's this?

You are required to file VAT returns every 3 months, reporting all VAT activity in and out of your business. This can get complicated as the VAT legislation is vast and we often see clients making costly mistakes. We’ll prepare your VAT returns with careful analysis of all of the transactions that have gone through your business in the 3 month period, identifying any areas requiring correction. We’ll make sure you are on the most beneficial VAT scheme for your circumstances. And of course, we will make sure that we always file before the deadline and provide you with the details for making the VAT payment.

Directors Tax Returns

What's this?

Being a director of a limited company means that you are automatically required to file self-assessment tax returns every year. The personal tax year runs from 6th April to 5th April, with a filing deadline of 31st January in the following year. We will use our knowledge of the tax system to minimise your personal tax liabilities. Most of our limited company directors pay no personal tax at all, due to some simple planning. We will also ensure that your personal tax returns are filed accurately and on time and will provide you with the tax payment details if necessary.


What's this?

If you have employees, you will be required to run a payroll and file PAYE returns. This is how HMRC record the earnings of individuals throughout the UK. Even if you don’t have employees, the directors will likely want to run a salary through the payroll. Running a payroll can get complicated. You’ll have to understand how much tax and national insurance to deduct, how to deal with SMP, SSP, Holiday Pay, etc. You’ll also have to use software that is compatible with HMRC’s Real Time Information (RTI) system and file returns weekly or monthly We will deal with all of this for you, requesting all the pay details we need each week/month and filing all of the returns accurately and on time. We will provide the payslips for your employees, the details for paying their net wages and the details for making PAYE payments to HMRC.
