Advice readily available on the setting up of a bookkeeping or accounting system suitable to provide sufficient financial information to manage your business effectively and to monitor its progress. The firm is able to assist with the preparation and interpretation of management accounts and to provide general financial advice on a regular basis. We can prepare, on the director’s behalf, annual accounts of limited companies for the shareholders and for filing at Companies House. We will ensure that the accounts comply with all Companies Act and other requirements and that advantage is taken of all available exemptions from disclosure of information. We also prepare annual accounts for sole-traders, partnerships and other organisations. Assistance can also be provided in the maintenance of accounting records and the preparation of VAT returns. VAT has never been a simple tax and most businesses involved with VAT are finding its increasing complexity a very real burden. Businesses are assumed to know all of the VAT regulations and if errors are made there will often be a financial cost owing to a strict penalty regime. Maxwells can provide VAT services to clients to meet their individual needs in order to relax knowing that their VAT affairs are being dealt with effectively. We believe that our high level of IT literacy can help improve our efficiency and help our clients to set-up their accounting systems to be efficient and effective. We are Sage Accountants Club Members and can supply software, hardware and training.
