Here are some of the services you can rely on from Artisan Accounts in London

Accounts Preparation

We process your files promptly after your year end, and discuss the results with you in detail. Unlike many accountants who see production of accounts as the end of their work, we see it as the start – and help you get a clear understanding of the key financial indicators and drivers for your business so you can improve business growth, cash flow and profitability.

Corporation tax services

Under Corporation Tax Self Assessment (CTSA), the legal responsibility for correctly calculating the corporation tax liability falls on business owners. If that’s not a process you enjoy, then we’ll happily undertake it on your behalf. We’ll calculate your company’s tax liability and any quarterly instalment payments. Harsher penalties for non-compliance mean that timely and effective corporate tax planning is essential these days. Our involvement can also result in significant improvements to your bottom line.

Self-Assessment

We have the expertise and software to take the headache out of the form filling and compliance aspect of Self-Assessment. We can provide you with practical advice on personal tax positions and the planning opportunities available to you. We can complete your tax returns, calculate any tax liability and advise you on exactly when to make payments and how much to pay.

VAT

Ever-changing regulations and the growing demands of HM Revenue & Customs mean VAT compliance can be a difficult administrative process for the unwary business person. We can help you comply with the regulations and ensure that you never make overpayments. To help you manage this complex area, we provide an efficient, cost-effective VAT service, which includes:

  • Assistance with VAT registration
  • Advice on VAT planning and administration
  • Use of the most appropriate scheme
  • VAT control and reconciliation
  • Help with completing VAT returns

Planning to minimise future problems with HM Revenue & Customs and negotiating with HM Revenue & Customs in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals if necessary.

Company Secretarial

The last thing you need as a busy business owner is to use up valuable time and resources making sure you comply with the Companies Act. Moreover, with company legislation changing at the rate it does, you need to be fully aware of how the changes affect you and your fellow directors. We can give you complete peace of mind in this area by carrying out your company secretarial duties for you – you can even use our office address as your registered office, if you prefer.

Our services include:

  • New company formations
  • Preparation and filing of statutory returns
  • Preparation of all documentation related to minutes and resolutions
  • Maintenance of statutory books

Payroll

Payroll can be time consuming and complicated and can divert resources from the core activities of your business. We can address this by providing a complete service, whatever the size or complexity of your business, or simply provide support when needed. Apart from being cost-effective, outsourcing this activity also helps relieve the pressure on you and your staff. But the main benefit is enabling you, as the business owner, to concentrate your efforts on core tasks and responsibilities – the key to the success of your business.

Bookkeeping

We can help you with all your general bookkeeping requirements, either at your offices or ours. Whether you need help to write up the books or just want us to check them over once a month or once a quarter, we’ll make sure you get the level of service you need. And when the time comes to employ your own bookkeeping staff, we’ll help you find the right person.
