Getting you started: What’s the process of setting up your accounts?

If you're a small business owner looking for a team of accounting professionals who can help you on your business journey, you've come to the right place. We provide a range of services, from company formations to monthly management accounts.

  • A free, no obligation initial consultation to get to know your business

The first step to becoming your dedicated accountant is understanding the nature of your business and your long-term goals. Of course, there is a lot to consider, from aligning our work with your business strategy to understanding your cash flow management. It's our job to make sure we understand all of these elements so that we can best advise you in setting up a structure that works for you, and in creating a financial plan that will help you achieve your goals.

  • Help you set up your business

When you're setting up your business, you'll need to decide how to establish it. It's vital because the taxes and liabilities you owe differ depending on your business structure. You may choose to become self-employed as a sole trader or incorporate your business as a limited company. If you need help deciding which route to take, we can reduce your tax liability by showing you whether being a sole trader or running a limited company is best for you. We can then ensure you are registered with Companies House and HMRC - every step is covered when you work with us.

  • Setting you up with PAYE and completing VAT registration

It is vital that you make sure your business registers for any taxes, pension schemes and payroll in order to be financially successful. Becoming VAT registered early can save your business hundreds or even thousands of pounds.

We can help you through the process of registering your business with HMRC. Once you have decided what type of business structure is right for you, it's time to register for things like VAT, PAYE, CIS pensions and more. We'll take care of all those registrations for you and keep you in the loop until the process is completed. When your business has been registered for everything it needs to, there’s one less thing on your plate, giving you valuable time to focus on running your business.

  • Implementing cloud accounting software

We offer a range of cloud-based software solutions that are specifically designed to make running a business simpler. This enables you to view real-time information anytime, anywhere. As the Government has now mandated Making Tax Digital, utilising leading technology is vital.

After gaining an understanding of your business, we’ll then suggest the best cloud accounting software for you. We embrace innovative technology, positioning us in the best place to suggest an array of cloud solutions. We can integrate Xero accounting software, or an alternative provider such as Quickbooks, to help you digitise your accounts - managing your business expenses has never been simpler.

  • Providing hands-on support and limitless advice - whenever you need it

Running a business can be complicated. It can also be rewarding, but that doesn't mean there aren't issues to deal with along the way.

We're here to help you get through them, and make your company as successful as possible. We offer expert advice on legal requirements, business taxes and liabilities - whatever you need. We're also committed to providing continuous support, so you know we'll be there whenever you need us.

Delegate your accounts to us whilst you focus on growing your business

When you're running a business, there's no time to be worrying about whether you've paid your taxes on time or your expenses are adding up correctly. Let Atkinsons take care of that for you - so you can focus on the things that matter.

We're here to relieve the pressure. Our specialists will work with you to make sure all your financial matters are dealt with promptly and professionally. We'll keep track of everything, ensuring all deadlines are met, business transactions are managed and all taxes are paid on time.

Alternatively, if you just want us to take care of one aspect of your finances, we can do that too. Whether it's dealing with payroll, handling your tax returns or keeping track of expenses - we'll do it all and give you peace of mind in the process.
