You have a legal responsibility to maintain proper accounting records and to prepare annual accounts and tax returns for both your company and you personally.

We deliver a quality accounting compliance service that includes the preparation of management accounts, year-end accounts, personal and company tax returns. Maintaining an accurate set of financials means you can monitor and actively manage your business.

We will guide you and help you meet all your legal responsibilities. We’ll prepare a bespoke financial calendar for you and your business so you can plan for future tax payments. We’ll guarantee that all of your filings with HMRC and Companies House will be on time. No fines or black marks – ever.

  • Great business systems mean consistency and accuracy and your accounting systems are no different. Our accounting services team will help you select and set up the right cloud accounting system to give you crucial management information for decision making. Helping you understand the numbers, having them at your fingertips and having the confidence that they’re correct, means you can spend more time working on the business rather than playing with numbers.
  • Our flexible bookkeeping services with cloud accounting remove the stress and time commitment you have to make. We’ll help you understand how technology can save even more time and have better information where and when you need it.
  • HMRC have been clamping down on what you can claim for. There are strict rules for a long list of items such as use of home as office, business mileage, entertaining, subsistence, training etc. It would be easy to under or over claim expenses but we’ll make sure your claims are correct and you won’t be exposed to HMRC enquiries.
  • Knowing whether to register, when to register, deciding which VAT scheme is right for you and what you can and cannot claim for can be fraught with danger. But it also opens up opportunities for significant tax savings. We’re here to help you complete and submit your VAT returns. If you’re in the building industry, but not a VAT expert, you’ll need help staying on the right track.
  • Maintaining good financial records is essential to meet your legal responsibilities. HMRC are introducing legislation called Making Tax Digital (MTD), which is persuading businesses to implement cloud accounting systems.
  • A good accounting system means you can look forward as well as back. The historic data will clarify your thoughts when you set budgets, cash flow forecasts and track your financial KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). The budgets are used to compare actuals to forecasts so you can make decisions when variances occur.
  • Many clients find a bespoke KPI dashboard allows them to measure actual performance against what is expected.
  • We are Registered Auditors should you require audit services.

Whatever your accounting needs – compliance services, advice or outsourcing your accounting to our team – we’ll make sure that everything is in order, completed and filed on time. You’ll also have a streamlined finance system and confidence in your numbers when making decisions.

“I can’t remember exactly how I came across Friend & Grant, but I’m glad I did. I needed some urgent tax advice as I was exiting a company. Jan the tax partner, was just brilliant.

“So when it was time to venture out on my own, Friend & Grant seemed the obvious solution to my accountancy needs. I started working with Andrew and Questor Insurance was set up in 2007. On our first day we sold 10 policies and I’m proud to say that we have sold at least one policy every day since 4 August 2007.

“We’ve moved premises, now have 26 staff and have grown considerably in the past 11 years. Andrew has helped us with my three companies and is currently working on a group structure that is just what we’re after.

“I couldn’t justify a part-time let alone a full time Finance Director for the first few years and so relied on Andrew, Jan and the Friend & Grant team to help me with anything financial. We built great systems, have our accounting in the cloud, and now we’ve a financial controller; Dale.

“Dale and Scott (at Friend & Grant), work closely together on the day to day technical and compliance work. We outsource our Payroll to Friend & Grant because as an employer, that’s one thing you can’t afford to get wrong!!

“I work closely with Andrew and continue to value the advice, support, pre-planning and especially the specific tax & remuneration planning. Friend & Grant manage my personal tax affairs and whilst I’m on the ball with money and understand what’s needed, I do need a few nudges to get my paperwork in on time. Perhaps this year I will be earlier…….”
