We work with established small businesses and start-ups, whether operating as a limited company, or as a sole trader. We work predominantly with small service sector clients and family run businesses, offering quality services for a competitive fee. We work locally in Henley and on a national basis.
Who are our clients?
We act for dentists, estate agents, art dealers, interior designers, film directors, lawyers, property companies and residential landlords.
We work with small service sector firms with typically up to 10 employees. We support start-ups, established businesses, and those who are growing.
We recognise that businesses with up to 10 or more employees have different needs to large corporations. As a result, we aim to give you and hands on approach and achieve a better outcome in terms of quality of service provided.
We can assist you on a wide range of issues including:
- Cash flow and collection
- Business partners and investment
- Accounting procedures and systems
- Business sales and acquisitions
- Tax implications of staff and related benefits
- Management accounts
- Budgeting and forecasting
- Financial accounts
- Regulatory compliance
In connection with financial accounting, we will prepare annual and periodic accounts for you to report the performance and financial position of your business. These documents consist of a profit & Loss account, balance sheet with detailed notes and analysis of costs and overheads.
With respect to regulatory compliance, whether you are running a PLC, limited company, partnership or as a sole trader the law never stands still. We will ensure that you are always compliant with new legislation and will act and inform you of any changes promptly.
Where appropriate we can prepare management accounts during the year which will provide you with financial information to ensure that your business is trading profitably and is adhering to any budget that may have been prepared. Finding problems at this stage in the trading cycle will help prevent any losses from being sustained and enables corrective action to be taken sooner rather than later.
