Statutory/annual accounts

Every year, your annual accounts provide details about how your business performed during the prior 12 months. This data includes information such as profits and losses, along with what assets and liabilities your company has. This information is sent to HMRC–Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs–so that they can calculate how much corporation tax you owe.

If you want to maintain your business’ financial credibility with banks and other organisations, annual accounts are crucial. They’re also one of the first things a lender will ask for before you can secure extra financing.

When you give us your annual accounts to manage, you can rest assured knowing that we will treat them with the utmost professionalism and care. We guarantee that all of the relevant information and records will be included in the filing, and we promise timely delivery.

Managed payroll services

It’s of the utmost importance for business owners to ensure their employees are paid in a timely manner and receive their full payment. Although this process can get confusing and comes with its challenges, it’s important to keep meticulous records when it comes to payroll.

Our payroll management service can make your life easier by calculating salaries, deductions, and distributing payslips on your behalf using industry-leading software. We know that staying on top of your company’s spending is important to you, so we provide detailed reports documenting your payroll expenses on a regular basis.

If you’re feeling stressed about payroll and don’t feel you have the time or knowledge to complete it effectively, delegate it to our experienced accountants!

Management accounts

Management accounts provide businesses with crucial information about the company’s current financial status and progress. This data is key for small businesses making decisions that will affect the future of their operations. Furthermore, by studying management accounts, small businesses gain insight into their cash flow–insight which is indispensable when planning to expand said operations.

We always put our clients’ individual needs first. That’s why we offer management accounting services either monthly or quarterly, or whenever the client specifically needs them.

Bookkeeping services

If you didn’t keep track of your company’s finances through bookkeeping, it would be impossible to know where you stand. This process allows you to follow all financial transactions so that everything is accounted for and you have a precise picture of what is happening at all times.

No matter what your needs are, our bookkeeping service can customise a plan just for you. If you want to learn and manage the system yourself, great! We will set everything up in an easily comprehensible way. However, if you would prefer not having to think about it at all, 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.

We at PBATS are always ahead of the curve when it comes to changes in the tax landscape. This allows us to help you minimise your tax liability and achieve the best possible outcome for you and your money. With our deep understanding and extensive experience, you can rest assured that accounting is being handled by qualified professionals.

At our company, we offer tax planning and accounting advice to assist you with staying compliant on your taxes. Furthermore, we provide helpful tips regarding 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, you are responsible for filing an annual tax return via self-assessment. Submitting it on time and with accuracy is vital.

Don’t waste your time struggling to file a self-assessment tax return. Our accountants will take care of everything for you, ensuring that all the relevant information is included and your return is filed on time. This makes it stress-free and easy for you.

Tax season is always a pain, but our team makes sure that you take advantage of every deduction and tax break you qualify for. That way, when tax season comes around, you can be confident that you won’t overpay as a result of oversights and lack of knowledge.

Business Review

A business review offers benefits such as helping you pinpoint where your company needs further improvement.

At PBATS, we want to see your company succeed. We’ll review every area of your business and uncover any problem areas in need of improvement. Once we’ve done that, we’ll present solutions to help improve your business as a whole.
