Our Services

Some providers only offer one way to run your company, we don’t. Read the different services we offer to discover your options.

Don't be treated like a number. Choose the service that suits you!

Most of our clients require support during the year and, therefore, decide to use our start-up service along with either our Gold Service or Platinum Plus Service.

Although we don't like to generalise, the type of client who uses our Platinum Plus Service (PPS) is the individual who doesn't have the time (or in some cases the inclination) to deal with book-keeping and administration matters. They want this chore taken off their hands and therefore choose our PPS service.

For individuals who like to be a bit more 'hands-on' with their company and get more involved in book-keeping and administration, we would recommend our Gold service.

Please click on the links below to review, in more detail, what is included under each service.

Some individuals contract for a short period of time and some individuals contract for many years.

Regardless of how long an individual contracts for, at some point in time the company will have to be closed down.

Our “Closing Down Service” is a very important part of the overall service we provide to our contractor clients.

There are various matters that need to be attended to:

  • De-registration of payroll
  • De-registration of vat number
  • Disposal of company assets
  • Preparation of cessation financial accounts
  • Submission of final accounts to HMRC and Companies House
  • Official de-registration of company at Companies House

Our service will ensure that all of the above compliance matters are properly and timeously dealt with.

In addition to dealing with compliance matters our “Closing Down Service” will also include a tax planning exercise to advise on the timing and method of paying out the remaining funds in the company to its shareholders.

It is a fact that many of our clients have saved substantial amounts of money by virtue of the advice provided by us over the closing down process.

We can also provide the following services if requested:

Financial services
