Three Client Case Studies

1. A Ltd wishes to outsource all the accounting work


  • A Ltd sends us either hard copies or electronic copies of invoices, receipts, bank statements etc on a monthly or a quarterly basis or we will visit the client premises to do regular book- keeping as required.

We then:

  • Do the book-keeping on a regular basis.
  • Ensure that vat returns are submitted to HMRC and you know how much to pay and when.
  • Calculate and submit salaries under HMRC RTI system and advise you how much to pay and how much to pay to HMRC in tax and national insurance.
  • Prepare year end accounts and submit online to Companies House.
  • Prepare corporation tax returns and submit online to HMRC.
  • If required we have access to the bank account enabling us to make HMRC payments.

2. B Ltd manages their accounts during the year and contacts us with any queries.


  • B Ltd provides accounts information shortly after the company year-end so that we can prepare the statutory accounts and corporation tax returns.
  • If there are any issues or queries during the year then B Ltd will contact us as required.

3. C Ltd employs an in house book-keeper to do the day to day accounts.

  • We do management accounts on a monthly/quarterly basis sometimes at the offices of C Ltd.
