Experts in Finance

What We Do

We can help you with all your day-to-day accounting and tax needs, from filing your personal text return, to auditing your business. But most importantly, we will help you to grow.

Audit and Assurance

Our ICAEW registration means that you can trust us to fully perform your business audit to the highest standard. We have a dedicated audit department headed up by director Karen Borowski.

We have a range of experience across a variety of different industries and sectors, which enables us to apply nuggets of knowledge that are relevant to your business for the best results.

We are business minded, just like you are, and our clients tell us that our practical and commercial recommendations make us stand out in a crowd of firms. In addition to fulfilling your businesses statutory audit requirements, we will also provide feedback to management, detailed workings of any audit adjustments and updated schedules for use going forward and of course peace of mind about your business.

In addition to helping with your audit and accounts production our team can also support you with a range of services including:

  • Due Diligence
  • Grant reviews
  • Regulatory returns
  • Pension scheme audits and certificates
  • Internal control reviews
  • Forecast / Budget Reviews
  • Business Valuations
  • Strategic Reviews


Business Support Services

Our dedicated business support service team, headed up by director Jennifer Davies, do what it says on the tin! They support you to run your business by concentrating on what you do best and leaving the rest to us.

Bookkeeping and VAT Returns

We can provide help once a week, monthly support, cover for sickness and maternity leave, to mention only a few. We will help with all of your bookkeeping and VAT returns as often as you need us, on-site or remotely as required.

Management Accounts

If you feel like you are spending too much time working in your business rather than on it, we can help. We can prepare your management accounts and make sure that they are presented in a way that suits your own way of doing things. We can help you with monthly or quarterly management accounts, so that you can see clearly how your business is performing both now and in the future. This critical information can help you to make those important business decisions.

Group Reporting

If your company is part of a larger group, you may have tight deadlines to get the financial information to your parent company each month. Our team can make this happen, working with you to get ahead and achieve your reporting requirements each month.

Year-end Accounts Production

Whether you are a sole trader or a large corporate, we will prepare your year-end accounts from whatever records you use, be it a manual cashbook or dedicated accounting software.

Accounts are needed for Companies House and HMRC, and the rules around what should be included seem to become more complex every year. Our team have the knowledge, skills and tools to take care of this for you, and we will spend time with you so that you understand how the numbers fit together.

Once you have approved then we will submit them to Companies House, freeing up your time and leaving you satisfied that your compliance obligations have been met.

Financial Forecasts

You’ve got the vision for where you want your business to go, but have you actually sat down and thrashed out the numbers to help you achieve it?

Taking time once a year to commit your business goals to paper will set you on the right track to getting where you want to grow. We’ll help you to express what that growth looks like in numbers, all the while producing realistic forecasts that are based on logic and not false hopes. After all, our job is to help you succeed

Once those growth numbers and forecasts are in place, we’ll stick around to help you review and adjust them on a real-time basis, and understand how and why some things might have changed. Doing this gives you control so you can curb overspending, deal with inefficiencies or repeat those successes.

We can help you with all this for a fixed fee that we base on the size and complexity of your business.

Financial Controller

With this service, our team support you just like they are part of your own team. We can raise sales invoices, deal with customer and supplier queries, send statements, collect debts, make supplier payments and much more. Clients typically ask for two days per week, but this can be tailored to suit your individual needs. We can come to you, or work remotely, but either way, expect to build a close relationship with a key member of the team.


Revell Ward’s payroll bureau delivers specialist payroll services to businesses with one employee to over 1000 employees. Legislation and regulation such as RTI and Pension auto enrolment are changing all the time and we can help share the burden and save costs through our economies of scale.

Our experienced and supportive team will never let you down. Each pay period, they will carefully process the information you provide, raising appropriate queries based on their vast experience. They will take care of your pension reporting, file returns with HMRC, raise BACS payments to your employees, prepare and distribute epayslips, and act as a sounding board for your ad-hoc payroll queries.

We can provide a range of reports, including the journal to post to your accounting system. With an agreed timetable and the knowledge that you have a team of experts looking after your payroll, you can be confident that your team will always be paid accurately and on time.

Business and Personal Taxes

We have an experienced team of qualified tax specialists, headed up by director Lesley Sutton. In addition to making sure that your tax affairs are up to date, we can provide you with proactive advice to mitigate your tax liabilities.

Tax Compliance

We deal with all aspects of tax compliance, the name used to describe all of the day to day tax requirements, including preparing tax calculations, filing tax returns and making tax payments.

We also deal with HMRC enquiries helping to bring these to a timely close and minimising any additional tax payable, interest and penalties wherever possible.

Whether you have a limited company or a group of companies, a partnership or a trust, are a sole trader or rent out a couple of properties, we can deal with all of these requirements on your behalf. We can take away the worry and pressure associated with your tax compliance, making sure that you meet all statutory deadlines.

Tax Planning

No-one wants to pay more tax than they have to. Our tax advice will ensure you’re aware of opportunities to minimise your liability wherever possible. We’ll also provide you with tax advice covering VAT, capital allowances, property tax planning and PAYE, to name a few.

Tax advice is needed in many different life situations, we specialise in advising families and owner managed businesses of all shapes and sizes. Our aim is to work with you throughout your life, ensuring tax compliance and tax efficiency.

When you start out in business your requirement for tax advice is likely to be focused on your business and maybe also remuneration planning. As the business grows you may have need for tax advice relating to business acquisitions, investments or joint ventures. As your family and wealth grows you may need tax advice relating to asset protection, tax mitigation and retirement planning. In the future you may need advice on business succession planning or a corporate sale.

As you might expect we cover all of the main areas and taxes, here are a few examples:

  • Corporate and business advice, including research and development tax credits, restructuring and reorganisations, VAT and exit planning.
  • Capital gains tax planning, including maximising entrepreneurs relief.
  • Transactions – buying and selling businesses including pre-sale / purchase planning, tax due diligence and deal structuring.
  • Employee Incentives, including employee share schemes, salary sacrifice arrangements and benefits in kind.
  • Property Tax, including business structuring, restructuring and reorganisation, capital allowances, VAT and stamp duty land tax.
  • UK tax advice when leaving the UK to live or work overseas

Trusts, Estates and Inheritance Tax

Our tax specialists can offer services to help protect your wealth and minimise tax liabilities with the use of trusts. They can also assist you with writing your Will and the mitigation of inheritance tax.

Inheritance tax is becoming an issue for more and more families as house prices rise when tax thresholds are frozen. We can help you to plan to minimise your inheritance tax liability in a way that suits you and your circumstances.

Our team includes a qualified Will Writer to amend / update your Will to reflect any planning recommended.

We have extensive experience of dealing with Trusts both for inheritance tax planning and asset protection. We can also assist you with the requirements of the Trust Registration Service (TRS) as required.

We regularly assist with the collation of information required for Probate and the calculation of inheritance tax liabilities on death. We can also assist with the management of Estates including the preparation of Estate accounts.
