Our experienced corporate team helps leading regional firms with their tax, audit and financing needs
We offer a full range of accountancy services for corporate clients, including tax planning, business structuring, audit and mergers and acquisitions (through our corporate finance team), as well as standard business services such as annual accounts, payroll and VAT.
Our service is tailored to your requirements. When you first approach us, we’ll discuss with you all the areas where you need help, and propose a package that meets your needs. For specific tasks such as audits, we’ll build a team to achieve your goals within your timeframe.
Many firms do not consider tax relief fully because they’re not aware of all the allowances for which they are eligible. We’ll look at areas such as R&D, capital allowances and patent box, to make sure you're not paying too much tax. Often, our work in this area pays for itself many times over.
We’ll also help you optimise the way you handle remuneration, including the balance between salary and dividends, where appropriate. Looking to the future, we’ll help you prepare for key events such as exiting the business and succession, including all the implications for your personal tax affairs.
Our audit service is both responsive and proactive. As well as making sure you are fully compliant with all the relevant regulations, we’ll report on improvements you can make to your accounting processes and systems to improve compliance in the future.
Many firms now opt for a multi-company structure, such as the combination of a trading company and a holding company. We can advise you on the best structure to minimise risk or reduce tax liabilities.
Acquiring or disposing of a business is a major event in the life of any company. Our corporate finance team can offer expert advice on every aspect of the transaction and support you throughout the process.
If you’re acquiring a business, we can help you identify appropriate targets, define your objectives, carry out due diligence and structure the deal. If you're selling, we’ll assist with preparing the company for sale, valuation, creating a prospectus and achieving the best price. We can also advise on management buy-outs (MBOs), including securing bank funding and deferring the consideration to save tax.
