What is bookkeeping?

In short, bookkeeping is the regular practise of keeping records of the financial affairs of your business. You will need these records when it comes to tax returns and end of year accounts submissions.

Why do I need an accountant for my bookkeeping?

Bookkeeping is one of the tasks that can keep you from developing your business or building your client base.

Limited Company Formation

What is a Limited Company?

A Limited Company is a private company – meaning that its finances and actions are separate from the finances of its owners. This protects individuals from financial issues, should their company fall on hard times.

There are several other benefits of setting up a Limited Company, including tax advantages, dividends, investment opportunities and business loans.

A Limited Company has more credibility, but added legal and personal responsibilities. We can help with the finer points of setting up your company and keeping it running in a financially viable and effective manner.

At Bell Stanley Accountants, we can arrange for a new limited company to be formed and registered at Companies House sometimes within 24 hours.
