Do you have the right business structure?
Where do you begin when deciding on the right business structure for you? Should you be limited company, partnership, limited partnership or as a sole trader? One of our experts can guide you through the process and help you decide which vehicle best suits you.
Separating your work life and your home life is particularly hard when it’s a family business. We believe that you should be working on the business, not in the business. If you haven’t got a strategic plan in place, now is the time for a full review.
Having a professional who can provide an objective overview of where you are, where you want to be, and how you can achieve that can be invaluable. Call us to find out how to set one up.

Bookkeeping can be a daunting and time-consuming task at the best of times, let alone when you’re also trying to run a business.
If you find yourself constantly battling to work out how much profit you’re making, who owes you money, how much VAT you have to pay or can’t figure out what your management reports mean, PKB Accountants can help. Refer to our Bookkeeping Services page for more information.
Payroll is a crucial part of running a business and it’s important to get it done accurately and on time otherwise you’re left with a lot of unhappy employees. Unfortunately however, it can be very time-consuming and what do you do if your payroll manager is sick or on holiday?
If you’re managing your payroll yourself, outsourcing this function takes the pressure off you and allows you to focus your time on other important tasks such as developing your business.
Refer to our Payroll Services page for more information.
VAT is a complex tax and whatever the size of your business, issues can arise.
Whether you’re starting a business from new or up until now haven’t been charging VAT, it’s especially important that you have the procedures in place to ensure that you avoid any potential pitfalls.
Unpaid VAT and penalties for errors can have a significant impact on your business so it’s vital that all risks are eliminated or dealt with promptly. Refer to our VAT Services page for more information.
