Accounting Solution Services

We’re good with numbers, but also with advice

Our highly skilled team of bookkeepers and accountants are meticulous experts, but they’ll also provide you with informed recommendations in plain English. This practical, considered advice will enable you to make better business decisions.

The Rayner Essex accounting team has a wide range of experience, meaning we can even carry out all the duties of a finance department, while saving you the expense of full-time salaries. We can perform as many or as few functions as you like.

Here’s what we offer:

Year-end accounts preparation

Make sure you meet compliance requirements and get your accounts right. Our team will discuss the figures with you, so that you fully understand them and can use them to benefit your business. They’ll also give you guidance on any bookkeeping efficiencies or technology that could improve your current system.

Bookkeeping support and outsourced services

Do you need full or partial bookkeeping? System set-up? Or expert training for your employees? We’ll take the time to understand your current processes and the key information you need to monitor, and then set up or fine-tune an accounting system to perfectly suit your needs.

Of course, if you don’t have internal bookkeeping resources, then our virtual finance team can take care of everything for you.

VAT advice and VAT return preparation

It’s vital that you understand the basics of VAT and remain compliant. As the rules change or your business moves into new areas, your VAT affairs may become more complex and you might need the technical expertise of our VAT director.

Management accounts

Get a clear view of your business and where it’s heading, allowing you to make informed strategic decisions. Unlike annual accounts, the layout and level of detail is decided by you, with room for more analysis or charts where you need them.

Business plans

Are you looking to start a brand-new business? Or embarking on a new project that needs external funding? Either way, we can provide the business plans and cash flow forecasts you need to ensure your venture is viable.

Tax efficiency

With the help of our tax, payroll and company secretarial services, we can provide expert guidance on remuneration strategy and exit planning. We’ll also help you to evaluate the best combination of drawing a salary and taking dividends.

Cloud accounting and apps

Let our expert team guide you through the maze of cloud accounting packages and apps, so you get the flexibility and features your business needs.
