Small business accountants in Swindon

Accounting services for small businesses

We’re specialist SME accountants in Swindon, working with local sole-traders, partnerships, limited liability partnerships (LLPs) and limited companies.

Accounting for small businesses means handling everything from the preparation of accounts and annual tax returns to in-depth tax advice. Unlike larger companies which often have their own in-house finance administrative staff, and perhaps a financial director, small businesses often benefit from more support from experts like us. Our focus is on freeing up your time, removing obstacles to the growth of your business and ensuring you stay compliant with HMRC’s many rules.

Contractors

Our monthly service calculates and lets you know which taxes you owe, and when and how to pay them – plus a recommendation on how much to hold in a ‘Tax Fund’. 

Small Businesses and Freelancers

Because we’re accountants near you, not a national firm based halfway across the country, we have a special understanding of the pressures and opportunities for small businesses in Wiltshire. And as local accountants, we’re invested in the community, engaged in regional networks and live and work where our clients operate.

A key focus for us as accountants for small business in Wiltshire is making sure that our clients have access to financial technology that will help them compete on the national stage. That’s driven partly by our belief in cloud accounting to make your business more efficient and profitable and partly by external pressure from the Government’s Making Tax Digital (MTD) programme (for more information see our video).. From MTD for VAT to MTD for income tax self-assessment, it’s vital that you stay compliant with new digital reporting regulations.

Setting up in Business

A new business needs energy and dedication, and time for considering ideas and plans – including ensuring that its structure is sustainable and tax efficient.

Annual Accounts

We prepare annual accounts for our clients for their own benefit and for submission to HMRC and, where necessary, for Companies House.

Income Tax Returns

Ensuring that you are on time with your Income Tax Return is our mission! We can discuss your requirements with you by phone or you can visit us.

VAT

 Value added tax is generally straightforward – but can be one of the most complex taxes imposed on business – meaning some businesses overpay or underpay VAT without realising it.

Bookkeeping

Making sure your bookkeeping records are up to date is crucial to understanding your financial position. Let us help you to keep on top of it.

Payroll

Administering your payroll can divert energy from your core business – a task made more difficult by the growing complexity of taxation and employment legislation.

Management Accounts

We can prepare management accounts for you – or, if you are using bookkeeping software, train you to prepare them for yourself.

Tax Advice

We will ensure that you meet your Corporation Tax and Self-Assessment deadlines and file your returns correctly, and avoid potential penalties.

Additional Services

We offer services such as providing references, Company Secretarial work and other ad hoc work that businesses need help with.
