Accounts | Business & Personal Tax | Corporate Tax | Payroll Services | VAT | Data Processing | Limited Companies

We have in depth knowledge and experience with clients of all sizes including sole traders, partnership and limited companies. We also have a large number of clients that have incomes from non business interests such as land and property incomes, income from investments and clients in employment.


Accounts

As one of our primary services, we produce accounts for our clients as frequently as it is requested or as appropriate.

For our self employed clients, annual accounts are usually required to formally prepare Self Assessment Tax Returns which are in turn submitted to HM Revenue & Customs. However it is often the case that interim accounts information is required so that day to day business decisions may be made. As such, we regularly prepare management accounts on a monthly and quarterly basis while comparing these results to historic results, budget forecasts and future cash flow predictions. It may be that accounts and forecasts are required for presentation by the bank or other finance lenders. David Collard & Co can provide these documents which are tailored to the clients needs. In respect of our limited company clients, we prepare annual statutory and abbreviated accounts and provide submission of these documents to the relevant bodies as appropriate.

Business & Personal Tax

The complexities of the tax system means that it is often a confusing and daunting process to ensure all the relevant documents and tax liabilities are settled in advance of the strict deadlines. David Collard & Co aim to reduce the burden on our clients and provide a comprehensive tax service.

We provide a complete service from beginning to end which includes the preparation and submission of partnership and individual Self Assessment Tax Returns to HM Revenue & Customs. We are also able to complete Self Assessment Tax Returns for individuals where no business interest is apparent but the submission of a Tax Return is still required including calculations for Capital Gains Tax. We will make all tax calculations and advise you of your liabilities and any payments that may be due. Where possible, we will ensure that all applicable tax reliefs and losses are utilised as much as possible to maximise the benefit to our clients. Where significant events are likely to occur in the near future, David Collard & Co are able to advise our clients of any tax planning measures that should be taken to make the most of any tax reliefs that may be available.
