What Does Our Southend Bookkeeping Service Include?

Why Work with MCL Accountants?

You might think that having a bookkeeper is an extravagant expense, reserved only for larger businesses. However, you would be wrong, as a bookkeeper performs a vital role within any company. By working with MCL, you’ll ensure that your records are always accurate and up to date, plus we’ll take away the onus of completing them from you, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.

You’ll also find that properly kept books are a vital tool for decision making. They help answer questions about your business strategy, investments, how your business will move forward, and much more. We’ll provide reports based on your books as and when necessary, to make the process that much simpler.

Finally, correct bookkeeping makes the creation of reports exceptionally simple, plus it also means that the reports are accurate, truly reflecting the state of your business. These reports can then be shared with investors, to ensure they stay informed about the business’ progress. Reports can also be used to attract and inform those considering an investment in your business.

Anyone with a business registered for VAT will know about the stresses of submitting VAT returns.

Everyone using our bookkeeping service will also benefit from free VAT returns, which will provide accurate information on how much VAT you’re required to pay.

This can be a time-consuming process, as well as one with legal ramifications, which is why all businesses should strongly consider hiring a professional to complete their VAT returns.

Bookkeeping & VAT Returns FAQs

Got a question about bookkeeping and VAT returns? If so, look through the FAQs below, which could give you the answer you need.

Yes, they are. Bookkeepers are there to make sure every transaction conducted by a business is recorded in the correct way. They can provide some form of advice, but bookkeepers are not qualified to provide advice about more complex subjects, including investments and taxation, unlike accountants.

Also, bookkeepers can’t submit accounts, even if the books they’ve compiled are an important resource for compiling accounts.

Many businesses choose to keep their own books. However, unless someone with bookkeeping expertise is part of the staff, we would not recommend this.  An expert is needed to ensure books are kept correctly and accurately, with incorrect records causing misleading reports and poorly informed decisions. Also, bookkeeping is a lengthy process, and many businesses simply don’t have the time to dedicate to keeping their books properly.

Every business, aside from a few exceptions, with a turnover exceeding £85,000 for a rolling 12 month period should be charging VAT to their customers. You must register for VAT before you are able to charge customers for it. If you need any assistance with working out whether you need to charge VAT, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

While we are based in Southend, we happily work with clients based throughout Essex and Greater London. Locations of our clients include Basildon, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Grays, Maldon, Romford, Hornchurch and Colchester.

This entirely depends on the size and scope of your business. Please contact one of our team members for a free quote. Remember that everyone using our bookkeeping service will also receive free VAT returns.
