    Accounts Compliance

    Keeping accounts up to date and complying with legislation has never been more important. As a company’s ability to obtain credit from suppliers may depend on credit agency reports, it’s important to plan ahead and be organised.

    At McIntyre Stuart we can ensure the business accounts you present are compliant with the latest rules and regulations to maximise your chances of obtaining finance and credit.

    We can work across company and non-company accounts, such as sole traders and partnerships, and can tailor our services to meet your requirements.

    From filing your accounts in good time, to sorting PAYE, VAT and Tax requirements, we can work across the board to ensure every facet of your business accounting is compliant.

    Data Entry and Accounts

    Data entry is the key to accounts compliance. Maintaining proper accounting records is both a company law and tax law requirement. We have an experienced team who can maintain your accounting records either in our office or at your premises using a variety of innovative accounting software packages.

    The support we offer ranges from reviewing data, to complete outsourcing of your finance function. Accurate data entry delivers accurate information on which can help you to make better informed business decisions.

    Management Accounts

    Regular accounts should be used as a tool for managing a business. They can be produced directly from an accounting system using the accounts data. They are often required by banks for loan and overdraft funding and provide useful information to conduct a tax planning review.

    Typically, management accounts might, at entry level, include the following information:

    • Profit and loss account
    • Balance sheet
    • Lists of amounts receivable and payable
    • Monthly trends.

    VAT and Payroll

    By keeping data entry up to date VAT reports can be readily produced when needed, such as for a review.

    We can prepare your VAT reports, complete the VAT returns and even advise on more complex aspects of VAT reporting such as transactions with EU and non EU countries and dealing with the correct treatment of VAT certificates on cross border transactions.

    We can also offer advice and set up systems to deal with the interaction of Customs Duty and VAT including duty deferment and the effect on VAT.

    We can also deal with many other areas of VAT, including:

    • VAT retail schemes
    • Annual accounting
    • Cash accounting
    • Margin schemes
    • Intrastat returns

    VAT returns must be filed online and payment made electronically, and as Making Tax Digital experts we are fully equipped and trained to convert your account data onto online records.

    Our expert team is standing by to bring you the best possible plan to get your business where it deserves.

    Making Tax Digital Experts

    We have been using Quickbooks’ desktop software since 2004, and are advanced certified Pro Advisers on Quickbooks online, the HMRC-recognised Making Tax Digital accounting software aimed specifically at small businesses.

    Making Tax Digital is a Government initiative, requiring all VAT-registered businesses to use compliant software to keep digital records and make VAT submissions to HMRC by April 2022. Our advisors are ahead of the curve, having already received advanced-level certification in the software; choosing us to handle your bookkeeping and accounting will make you compliant with the forthcoming legislation – and save you the time and money required to invest in and get familiar with the software yourself.

    “We are a small family company and find Helen’s help invaluable. She keeps us up to date with new regulations, and any problems with our accounts system she is happy to either talk it through with us, or will happily pop over to sort it if necessary. I would not be exaggerating when I say we would be extremely sorry to lose her, which I hope is something we never have to do. We trust Helen completely, and have complete faith in her and her company.”

    We could write a lot about why bookkeeping is important for businesses, but in simple terms it’s important to ensure that all your accounts data is recorded correctly to ensure that it can be filed, submitted, reviewed and collated for accounting compliance purposes. This will ensure that you do not get into trouble with financial authorities and that you can have easier access to credit should you need it.

    Bookkeeping is the first step in accounting, and involves recording your business’ financial data accurately. Accounting, meanwhile, is presenting and interpreting the data collected during the bookkeeping process. This means that both work hand-in-hand. McIntyre Stuart is able to offer either or both of these services to suit your business’ needs.

    While we recommend consulting an accountant to see whether completely outsourcing your business accounting is right for you, there are some notable benefits to consider. These benefits can include, saving costs on overheads, saving time and resources, and guaranteeing a high level of expertise and proficiency with your businesses bookkeeping and accounting.
