COST EFFICIENT & VALUED
ANNUAL ACCOUNTS & AUDITS
Our firm has been working with businesses for over 90 years and all of our partners are experienced accountants as well as being business owners themselves. Larger businesses often have their own accounts function and we work closely with finance directors and financial controllers, to make sure that the service we provide to you is seamless, efficient and cost efficient.
Our experienced team of auditors have worked across many sectors and there isn’t much they haven’t dealt with. This means that we can hit the ground running – no repeating the same information each year to the next set of trainees and no silly questions!
We aim to make sure that we review and comment on your internal controls and help to make sure your systems are robust. We can also help with some of the more mundane jobs such as running the payroll or managing the company secretarial work, giving you more time to spend on the issues which really need your input.
Larger businesses have more complex tax affairs and we can help in making sure you meet your compliance requirements, while helping to minimise tax liabilities.
Quarterly payments on account, R & D tax credits, tax efficient employee and director remuneration are all key issues.
We can also help the directors to raise equity funds using the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), or attract and retain key employees with Enterprise Management Incentive schemes (EMI).
Many businesses are maintained within a group structure. We can advise the shareholders and directors on the most tax efficient way to structure the group, implementing various methods to achieve this. These might include a share for share exchange, demerger, disposal of a segment or the hiving up of trade and assets.
We can also help when a business owner or shareholder wants to exit or retire, helping to achieve a tax efficient disposal of their holding, a repurchase of own shares or even a buyout from the existing management team.
Our experienced corporate finance team has years of experience in the buying and selling of companies. We can help you prepare your business for sale, assist in finding a purchaser and then advise on the most tax efficient method of transferring it to the new owner.
We carry out due diligence on potential purchases, which can range from a table top review of a few documents, to a full investigative visit resulting in a comprehensive written report. We then liaise with your legal team to ensure that the results of this work are dealt with in the sale and purchase agreement or reflected in the purchase price.
Over the years we have been involved with senior management teams, helping them to raise sufficient funds from lenders and private equity to buy out the existing ownership group. We have also assisted existing shareholders to transfer their business to the management team they have developed, allowing their business and all of their hard work to continue with the next generation.
