Support services

The combination of your business knowledge and our support services will help your business to grow and increase profitability.

On-line accounting

Xero Accounting Software

The digital tax age is upon us and the Inland Revenue is pushing for change. We have taken on board a number of cloud based accounting systems in order to help clients who are ready to adopt a completely web-based solution for their accounts and book-keeping needs. We can currently offer Xero, QuickBooks, Kashflow and FreeAgent systems and we can help you to choose the system that best suits your needs. This makes the process of accounting simpler and if desired, we can become your `finance director` available online or on the phone with access to your accounting information and able to give relevant real time advice. You will see us as a valuable asset rather than just `the number cruncher’.

Sophisticated accounting information is more affordable and easy to access. It is definitely within the reach of so called small business user. There is no need to download software or to install upgrades and our support is fully included with the service.

Management information

Flowing from the above investment in accounting technology any business is able to make a small step to regular and timely management information. Without information on profitability, margin changes, costs and variances your business is partially sighted, slow to make important changes, and possibly falling behind the competition. Access to quality management information is set to become the norm in the future for thee successful business.

The key to the availability of this management information is the initial set up. We will work closely with you to get to know your business and to implement and train you on the right product. This will allow us to produce the relevant management information (for example monthly accounts, or simply product sales analysis) for us to give constructive advice on the best course of action.

Bookkeeping

We can help you with all your general bookkeeping requirements, either at your offices or at our office. You may require help to write up books or need us to add the finishing touches to information on bookkeeping systems in order to create your own management information. If you do not employ a bookkeeper then we can take up the role or help you recruit the right person for your business.

Payroll

Running a payroll can be time consuming and complicated and divert resources from the core activities of your business. We can address this by installing payroll software and training your staff. Outsourcing this activity also helps relieve the pressure and we can offer cost-effective solutions. We are able to provide the complete service, whatever the size or complexity of your business, or simply provide support when needed.

Business planning and forecasts

Every business should plan ahead to ensure success but daily business pressures often conspire to delay the strategic planning process. Financial forecasts are a crucial part of any business plan and we will ensure these are both meaningful and robust.

Liaising with banks and institutions

We offer support when liaising with banks and other financial institutions. Drawing on our wealth of experience we can support our clients through this often daunting experience.
