Company Accounts Preparation in Thorpe Bay

As a company owner, you’ll know that accounts are one of the most arduous, and often complex, jobs you can do. What’s more, there’s pressure to get them just right, as company accounts are a legal document, and there can be ramifications if you don’t complete the process accurately.

So, with this in mind, why would you put yourself through the stress of completing your own company accounts? The intelligent move is to pass this painstaking job over to the professionals, such as MCL, allowing you to get on with the day-to-day running of your business.

We’ll complete the process in accordance with FRS102 Sec1A or FRS105 for Micro Entities requirements, plus you can be sure we’ll follow all best practices. The result? Your accounts will be prepared to the highest standards and with the accuracy you’d expect of a legal document.

Company accounts must be prepared every year by all limited companies, and they must then be submitted to both Companies House and HMRC. They give a complete overview of the company’s accounts for the entire year and enable a business to compute its corporation tax liability which is payable to HMRC within 9 months of the company’s financial year-end date.

What’s more, company accounts are a public record, allowing anyone to view a company’s financial state of affairs. Making a public record of accounts is a legal responsibility that can’t be shirked.

To prepare accounts, we require you to provide us with records of all financial transactions throughout the year, regardless of size. We also need to receive copies of all relevant bank statements from the year. If you use accounting software, we’d also request access to this, as being able to use it will significantly reduce the time taken to complete the accounts.

Once you have provided the requested documents, we’ll handle the rest. This means that we’ll prepare your accounts accurately and without fuss and then submit them correctly to Companies House and HMRC.
