    We understand that accounting can be complex for limited company directors and business owners who already have a lot on their plate. This is why we like to communicate with our clients in layman’s terms. Our friendly team has a range of accounting skills and can assist in helping you to better understand the financial implications of running a limited company.

    Our limited company accounting services

    Our Chartered Certified Accountants can also advise on cloud-based online bookkeeping software such as Xero, review business performance from a wealth maximisation and tax reduction perspective and look ahead for future planning purposes. We can even take ownership of every aspect of your accounting responsibilities with our all-inclusive outsourcing services.

    Our chartered accountants can assist you with a range of limited company accountancy services, including:

    • Registering your limited company at Companies House

    • Managing your payroll to ensure that all staff are paid accurately and on time without the need to invest in extra software or personnel

    • Maintaining precise and accessible bookkeeping records of your income and outgoings so that you have a firm handle on your financial affairs

    • Providing competent tax advice and support in order to avoid costly penalties and fines

    Xero Cloud Accounting services for limited company accounts

    Xero is an online accounting software system that works well for many limited companies, as it allows you to examine your cash flows, bank transactions, business finances and account details from any place, at any time!

    At Ascott Blake, we are massive advocates of Xero and its sophisticated accounting capabilities. Not only does this cloud-based system enable you to manage your finances effortlessly, but it also allows us, as your limited company accountant, to identify profitable parts of your business and areas that may need improving – all at the click of a button.

    Payroll for limited companies

    Adhering to National Insurance regulations, ensuring that all tax returns are submitted correctly and making sure that your employees are paid on time can often mean that payroll for many limited companies is time-consuming and challenging. However, failure to comply with specific terms and legislations could see your business facing unwanted penalties.

    At Ascott Blake, we specialise in every aspect of the payroll process. Whether you need partial intervention or an entirely outsourced payroll solution, with our CIS and payroll support services, we can bring real benefits to your business.

    Tax returns and advisory for limited companies

    At Ascott Blake, we know that tax probably isn’t where your passion lies, so why not let our accountants and specialist online software make life easier for you? From Income Tax to Corporation Tax, Capital Gains and VAT, we’ll help you make informed financial decisions whilst staying on the right side of the law.
