All businesses must complete annual tax returns. A key priority for any business is to stay compliant with HM Revenue & Customs' requirements.
 

Our service includes the preparation of your tax return, a tax calculation and telling you what tax is due and when.

 

The burden of tax compliance ultimately lies with you. Mistakes can carry heavy penalties and incur interest. A resulting enquiry or investigation can be a costly distraction from the focus of running your business.

Company Secretarial

 

By trading as a company, you are governed by the Companies Act 2006. You therefore have to file various documents at Companies House on an annual and on-going basis.

These include changes in the directors of the company, as well as changes in their personal details e.g. home and service addresses.

 

Each year a company must file an Annual Return, showing details of directors, shareholders and key addresses. It is important that these details are kept up to date and are accurate. We are happy to deal with this administrative burden for you.
