There is a popular misconception amongst business owners that ‘accounts’ are something your accountant produces once a year – usually well after your year end – to file at Companies House and with HMRC. As far as the business owner is concerned they serve no useful purpose.

And there are some accountants who provide just that disservice.

Fortunately at Guilford Accounting we aren’t one of them.

Your accounts are a business tool you should use and hone to perfection to make your business more profitable and run more smoothly.

  • Access to one of our bookkeepers if you need data entry support;
  • Preparation of an annual budget and cash flow forecast, including forecast tax payments and dates (so you get no surprises);
  • Monthly bank reconciliations;

  • Quarterly VAT returns (if applicable);
  • Preparation of your annual accounts;
