Management accounts

The purpose of our management accounts team is to first ensure your book keeping is accurate and trustworthy and second to use that information to help drive the business forward.

Accounts preparation [top]

Preparation of accounts is at the core of services that we provide. Your responsibilities as a director or as a business owner to prepare and submit accounts to Companies House, H M Revenue & Customs and other regulatory bodies are onerous. In addition creditors, banks and other financial institutions may all require sight if your accounts in support of credit facilities.

Our aim is to not only help you to meet your statutory requirements but also to ensure that your accounts and annual report presents a positive image of your business.

The format of accounts and the interpretation of financial reporting standards are complex. Our trained partners and staff will ensure that your accounts comply with current requirements. Up-to-date software is used to ensure that the process is as efficient as it can be so that more time can be spent interpreting the results with you than in processing the numbers.

This enables us to identify potential problem areas and to make recommendations that may result in opportunities to improve your business performance. For further information contact your TCB office or complete an enquiry form.

Why have the stress and worry of paying employees on time when we can look after this headache for you?

Construction Industry Scheme (New CIS)

From 6 April 2007 HM Revenue & Customs changed the way in which contractors had to deal with subcontractors.

Rather than issuing vouchers and making annual returns, contractors are now required to verify a subcontractor’s registration and appropriate tax deduction with HMRC before making deductions.

Furthermore, statements are issued to the subcontractor in place of vouchers and HMRC expect a contractor’s return to be submitted monthly. Penalties for late returns start at £100 per month.

TCB can remove the CIS problem from your business with our dedicated software.

We can verify a subcontractor’s tax status, issue statements and make monthly returns over the internet.

Benefits of our service

The most positive outcome of employing a payroll bureau is that clients enjoy peace of mind.
Other benefits include:

No payroll security problems
No need to keep up to date with new legislation
Releases top management time
Provides staff with a fast efficient service
No need to deal with staff, Inland Revenue, Benefits Agency and mortgage applications

Payroll pressures

Proprietors and managers have many varied roles. So whilst all employees rightly demand punctual payment, it can consume valuable management time to complete payroll tasks. Small businesses in particular find the compliance and operation of a payroll particularly onerous. Larger businesses find that too much managerial time is spent operating and administering it. Our service releases them from the burden, to focus on their core business roles. This avoids the storage of confidential staff payroll records and releases valuable time previously tied up on payroll matters.

Will you be claiming your tax free payments? Small employers can benefit by up to £825 if the End of Year Return forms P35 and P14 are submitted online. New employers are entitled to the same Tax Free Payment as a Small employer. The tax free payment is paid over 5 years. All employers will have to file online by 2009/10.
