Statutory/annual accounts

Each year, your annual accounts give a rundown of how your business did in the past 12 months. Data such as profits and losses are reported, along with what assets and liabilities your company has. All this information is sent to HMRC–Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs–so they can calculate how much corporation tax you owe.

Annual accounts are crucial for maintaining your business’ financial credibility with banks and other organisations. They’re also one of the first things a lender will ask for if you need to secure financing.

You can always trust that your annual accounts will be handled professionally and efficiently when you entrust them to us. All of the relevant information and records will be included in the filing, and we guarantee timely delivery.

Managed payroll services

It’s crucial for business owners to make sure their employees are paid on time and in full. Although this process can be complicated, it’s important to keep track of everything.

Our payroll management service can take the burden off of you by calculating salaries, deductions, and distributing payslips.

At our company, we utilise top-of-the-line software in order to precisely manage your salaries and deductions. In addition, we regularly give detailed reports documenting your payroll expenses so that you can stay up-to-date on your company spending.

Delegating your payroll process to experienced and qualified accountants is a cost-effective and stress-free alternative to struggling through them on your own. If completing the payroll every month is something that you simply don’t have the time or knowledge for then don’t hesitate to reach out to our expert accountants today — we’ll be more than happy to assist you with a free, no-obligation consultation.

Management accounts

Management accounts are vital for businesses since they offer real-time updates about the company’s financial progress and stance. This info is important for making important business decisions down the line. Also, by studying management accounts, small businesses can get a deeper understanding of their cash flow–which is key when planning to expand operations.

Our clients’ individual needs always come first, so we make sure to offer our management accounting services on a monthly or quarterly basis, or, whenever they are specifically needed.

Bookkeeping services

Without bookkeeping, it would be near impossible to know where your company’s finances stand. This process allows you to track financial transactions so that nothing gets lost in the shuffle and you always have an accurate portrayal of what is going on.

Regardless of what you need, our bookkeeping service can tailor a plan just for you. If you want to learn and manage the system yourself, no problem! We will set everything up in an easily comprehensible way. On the other hand, if you would prefer not having to think about it at all, and would like a more stress-free option, we’re more than happy to do everything! Let us handle your accounts so that you can focus on bigger tasks related to running your business.

Tax advice and planning.

At PBATS, we know that the tax landscape is always changing. That’s why we stay ahead of the curve so we can help you minimise your tax liability. With our deep understanding and extensive experience in this domain, you can rest assured knowing that we will work hard to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your money.

With our tax planning and accounting advice we can help you and your business stay compliant with your taxes, and also provide helpful insights on corporation tax, income tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax and VAT.

Self-assessment tax returns

As a company director, self-employed professional, or business partner, one of your personal responsibilities is filing an annual tax return via self-assessment. Timely filing and precision are both essential.

Submitting a self-assessment tax return can be complicated and frustrating, especially for sole traders doing it themselves. Our accountants will take care of everything for you so that all the relevant information is included and your return is filed on time; this makes it stress-free and easy for you.

Our team doesn’t just file your taxes for you- we make sure that you’re also taking advantage of any qualifying tax breaks or reliefs. That way, come tax season, you can be confident that you won’t overpay.
