Meet a Dorking accountant for an hour’s free consultation.

We are an experienced team of accountants in the Dorking area and we’re currently offering potential clients the opportunity to meet with us for an hour.

If you decide to meet us, we’d really appreciate it if you share with us as much information as you can about yourself, your company, and your longer-term personal and professional financial goals. After our meeting, we’ll send you a proposal containing the services that will be of greatest benefit to you now and as you move towards achieving your future goals.

Ever since our MD founded the company, we’ve taken a different approach to business – we’re not your standard accounting firm. Of course, we do everything possible to reduce the amount of tax you have to pay using all legitimate methods at our disposal. We take away the stress and the distraction of filing your submissions to HMRC and Companies House and we give you plenty of warning about how much you’ll need to save up to pay the taxman and on what date.

But, as we’ve said, we’re more than accountants. We’re partners – partners who add value to your business. We’re here to help you identify both the opportunities and threats to your business as you make progress towards your overall personal and professional financial goals. Our team of chartered accountants, business advisors, and bookkeepers deliver honest and timely advice to you at every stage of your business journey.

Get in touch with us to find out the difference we’ve made to our existing clients and to find out how we would make a difference to you and your company.

    Help with accounting and bookkeeping software

    By taking five or ten minutes a day to upload all your financial transactions to an online accounting and bookkeeping software platform, you’ll find yourself in much greater control of your business.

    The most significant benefit clients report when they integrate bookkeeping software into their companies is their ability to know much more precisely when money comes into and goes out of their business.

    Better business information means better cashflow management and more accurate records for your Black and White accountant to work from when doing your year ends or your VAT. The more accurate the information, the more likely it is that we will be able to claim every claimable expense for VAT and corporation tax purposes.

    We will help you choose the right software package and service level for your business. We’ll also show you how to implement it across your business and we’ll train you and your staff in groups or one to one on how to use the software and how to extract the greatest value from it.

    In addition to being Xero gold partners, we are certified partners of QuickBooks and Sage. We also work with clients using FreeAgent and Wave.

    Our bookkeeping and payroll for clients

    If you’d prefer a professional bookkeeper to keep your accounting and bookkeeping software updated so that you can concentrate your and your staff’s efforts on finding new clients, making new sales, and servicing existing customers, please get in touch.

    Our bookkeeper will visit you regularly to:

    • upload and classify all of your business’s transactions,
    • organise your staff payroll and workplace pension, and
    • provide you with the financial and performance reports you need to understand your business more to make better decisions

    Bespoke services for your company

    In addition to our core services, we also offer more specialist accounting, taxation, and business support services, including:

    Selling, buying, or merging a business

    We’ve represented both buy-side and sell-side in merger and acquisition deals. For exiting owners, we can help prepare your business to be taken to market and for the due diligence process. For purchasers, we can assist you in:

    • evaluating the value and opportunity in potential targets,
    • the incorporation of a NewCo at Companies House, and
    • the integration of cash, assets, and contracts from purchased or merged companies into the desired corporate vehicle(s).

    Help if HMRC are investigating you

    Ask us about our fee protection program – this is an insurance product which pays for all of our time and expenses in preparing a defence when you’re being investigated by HMRC.

    Please get in touch with us if you have any income you haven’t declared to HMRC or if you suspect that an investigation into your or your company’s tax affairs may be imminent.

    Small business accounts in Dorking – understanding the challenges and opportunities of business growth and planning

    Running a small business is hard. Most people do not appreciate how difficult it is to run a business with a turnover of less than one million. The higher your revenues, then the more staff you take on, the more customers you have to service, the greater the amount of money you spend on stock, and the more of your personal time is swallowed up by the business.

    We understand how difficult it can be to meet the challenges and make the changes when increasing level of profitability and expanding your business. However, when you have got to the other side, it’s worth it – your revenues will be more stable than ever and you’ll have built a company capable of providing you and your family with a significant and predictable source and level of income.

    Our chartered accountants and business advisors can assist you with business development ideas, business development services, business development support, non-executive director placement, and a part time financial director.

    We can also help:

    • find angel investors and business finance,
    • organise business loans (incorporating commercial loans and commercial lending),
    • prepare the documentation for commercial mortgages, and
    • introduce you to factoring and discounting firms to improve cash flow for businesses operating on 30-day-or-greater invoicing cycles.
