ACCOUNTants FOR SMALL BUSINESSES in Southampton
Our Southampton-based clients love the service we provide, for a number of reasons. Our day-to-day approach is to handle everything for you, leaving you with less internal admin and the confidence that everything will be done efficiently and promptly.
We also have all the capability we need to offer higher-level specialist services when needed, from tax planning, funding activities (eg EIS), tax claims such as R&D extending right through to FD services.
The value this can bring to your business should not be underestimated, and clients coming to us who have ‘put up’ with a lesser service previously regularly tell us they wish they had made the change a lot sooner!
DAY TO DAY ACCOUNTING AND ADMINISTRATION
We use Xero as our favoured online accounting system, and can help you to build a system to suit your business, using other applications linked via API where needed. We can also help you devise efficient, paperless procedures to use in-house, allowing us to manage everything remotely, and give you the information you need, when you need it.
We have extensive experience in helping growing businesses to plan for the future, including initial modelling, and then helping business owners to monitor, interpret and adjust forecasts as real data becomes available. This process gives a huge advantage to the owner in terms of creating targets and goals for the business, then measuring performance against them. The outcome is a valuable insight into how the business is performing, decisions that need to be made and the areas that need attention.
We work hard to become the ‘sounding board’ that all business owners need to discuss ideas and hear valued second opinions. We are always straightforward and honest in the advice we give, even when it is something you might not want to hear!
Alongside the detailed planning services above, a business should always have a strategy, and this is something we also work with many business owners to determine. Our other advisory services cover more specific topics such as reorganisations, funding, specialist tax planning, and many other things.
PLANNING AND FORECASTING
Whether you already have a modern system and want to make it better, or are at the point of moving across to new technology and don’t know where to start, we can help you find the most efficient and streamlined system for your needs and improve the quality and timeliness of the information you need to run your business.
Right from initial design to implantation and training, we will guide you through the transition, ensure no interruptions and produce something you’ll wonder how you ever managed without!
Our comprehensive approach to your day-to-day accounting will mean that year end accounting is no longer the large, one-off job it used to be. We work hard to get the figures right as we go along, so the end of year procedure is a lot simpler than in the past, and therefore can be done with very little fuss.
