    At Ascott Blake we can help you avoid the most common financial pitfalls. In fact, we’re on a mission to make small business accounting simpler, with our specialist team of number crunchers, taxation masterminds and Xero accounting software geniuses!

    We know that accounting for a small limited company can be complex, which is why we like to communicate in layman’s terms to our clients. Our friendly team have a range of accounting skills and can assist in helping you to better understand the financial implications of running an SME.

    Accounting services we offer

    Our chartered accountants can assist you with a range of small business services, including:

    • Registering your small 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

    Our business advisory services offer more than just accounting though!

    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.


    Xero is an online accounting software system that works well for small and developing businesses like yours, 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 effortlessly manage your finances, but it allows us, as your accountant, to identify profitable parts of your business and areas that may need improving – all at the click of a button.


    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 small limited companies is time-consuming and challenging. But failure to comply with specific terms and legislations could see your small business facing big fines!

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


    Every penny counts when you are a small limited company, which is why you don’t want to be paying any more tax than is absolutely necessary. But if you are someone who finds tax taxing, paying for a specialist tax accountant could save you money in the long run.

    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.

And the good news doesn’t stop there, as we provide the same outsourcing services as an in-house financial expert but at a fraction of the price.
