Helping individuals & businesses succeed since 2001


Annual Accounting

To assist you, we provide an extensive range of accountancy and bookkeeping services. These services include the following:

  • Assistance and provision of training to your staff, with regard to manual bookkeeping systems or computerized packages
  • Preparation of year end accounts
  • Preparation of management and interim accounts

Besides helping you meet the statutory requirements, we also take the opportunity to conduct a review of your financial and management systems. This can often result in our identifying potential problem areas and recommending opportunities to improve your business performance. We discuss the problems and opportunities with you and help you implement any agreed solutions.

We see the preparation of your annual report as an opportunity to enhance your external image. A well-prepared report can have a considerable positive impact on the perceptions of investors, potential finance sources, customers, prospect, referral sources, and even your own staff - all of which greatly improves your business prospects for the future.

Book Keeping

We can relieve you and your staff of an enormous burden by taking care of all your bookkeeping and accounting needs, including the preparation of your annual accounts.

Our first step is to work with you so we can gain a full understanding of your business. We then tailor our approach to your requirements so we can provide exactly the service you need.

Besides your core bookkeeping, we can also maintain your VAT records and take on short-term projects to relieve your staff of any temporary overload.

Business Growth

Management Accounts

Management accounts are not a legal requirement but are vital for a company's management to track performance, and may indeed be required by banks and investors.

The importance of evaluating the performance of any business before the year-end can be crucial. Clients are encouraged to monitor their performance and we help them by preparing monthly or quarterly management accounts, which they find invaluable. For any small business wishing to succeed, monitoring costs, revenues and cash flow in the early years is vital.

We tailor management accounts to your requirements in terms of wording, layout, charts and key metrics tracked. Our objective is that our clients understand and use the accounts to improve their profitability and the value of their business.

Tax Planning & Saving Schemes

We offer our services to high net-worth expatriates and international professionals with tax planning and saving schemes. Our tax planners will cover taxation liability, legal tax breaks, offshore setting up and other schemes an individual and or company is entitled to and can help you formulate a legal plan to assist with lowering your overall taxation liability.

Our services are a great asset to any expatriate as we understand the taxation rules between the countries and will work out schemes limiting the taxation liability. The tax planning and saving is legal and our advice is in compliance with the tax laws.

Tax Investigations

Investigations can be unpleasant at the best of times with Inspectors trawling through business and personal records in the hope of identifying irregularities. We provide full consultancy services for tax investigations. No two cases are the same, but it is good to know that back-up and support is available when you need it most. We are happy to take cases on from start to finish, or to offer advice when required.

We find that a good result can often be achieved for clients by adopting no nonsense approach with the Revenue and by ensuring they keep to their internal instructions.
