Companies with employees

The services this type of company vary so much that we believe it is more appropriate to quote on an individual basis. If the company is smaller checkout the packages we offer for “One man companies“.

We act for a number of companies with employees. We prepare statutory accounts and Corporation Tax Returns and bookkeeping, where required.  Once agreed the Return and accounts are then submitted to HMRC and Companies House in the required iXBRL format and confirmation of agreement is then sent to the client.

For Companies House compliance, we suggest Inform Direct. Access usually costs £72 pa however we include this as part of our annual fees.

Our current charges are:

Bookkeeping, payroll and VAT.

£600 – £900 per quarter. This is for 20 -30 hours work each quarter.

Company accounts and return.

£1,275 – £1,700 per annum. This is for the full statutory accounts and Corporation Tax Return.

Miscellaneous work.

£30 – £100 per hour depending on level of seniority of individual undertaking the work. This work encompasses management accounts,  meetings, tax planning and Research and Development claims.

Personal returns of the directors.

£100 each per annum.

Third party charges.

There is a £13 pa charge for the Companies House Confirmation Statement and a monthly charge for the online bookkeeping license.

Typical client.

We have acted for this client since the business started. It now has a turnover of just under £2m, net profits of £350k and 6 employees. While the business was growing, we dealt with the all the bookkeeping, VAT and payroll but this was transferred in-house in 2016.  This client currently requires assistance with management reports, stock control, research & development claims along with regular visits to their premises.
