Bookkeeping & VAT returns

All business need to record their accounting transactions during the year to comply with the Taxes Acts. Larger business need to prepare quarterly or monthly VAT returns based on their accounting transactions during the relevant period. Well kept and up to date accounting records are essential to the running of any business and good records are vital to protect you from any unforeseen additional tax that may arise as a result of a tax investigation or VAT Inspection.

Keeping accurate, up to date records is a burden for any business. Where this task falls to the owner manager, it is also a distraction from getting on with running your business. For larger clients, you may wish to save costs by using us to outsource your accounting function. Outsourcing your bookkeeping to us also means you are not relying on any one individual who may be absent due to holiday or sickness.

Our fully computerised bookkeeping and VAT service is designed to give you confidence that your accounting records and VAT are up to date so that you can concentrate on business strategy. In addition we can also produce regular management accounts based on our bookkeeping work.
