What are the top business bookkeeping services?

There are ten core bookkeeping services that we help our businesses in Kent with. Some we help with specific services, others, we offer the whole range of services.

  1. Filing Tax Returns to HMRC: Tax returns is a time-consuming task that can easily go wrong if you don’t know what you are doing, this is why most businesses outsource this task. It’s important to get your business tax or self-employed tax returns correct or you could face hefty fines. We also help you reduce the amount of tax you pay.
  2. Data entry and keeping track of transactions: When running a business, keeping track of your transactions, expenses, pay to employees and general cash flow is extremely important. You don’t want to get into a situation where you can’t pay your bills because you haven’t been keeping track of what’s coming in and out of the business. This is where most businesses fail, 29% failed because they ran out of cash. (Source)
  3. Accounts Receivable and Payable: We can help you make sure all of your invoices and up-to-date, bills are paid and employees paid
  4. Financial Reports: We can give you regular reports on your income, loss, balance sheets, cash flow stats, end-of-year accounts and anything else you might need to help keep your business running smoothly.
  5. Payroll: Paying your staff can often be a complicated process, over time, new employees, paying the exact right amount, national insurance, pensions. This can often be a painful process, which is why a lot of businesses outsource this to a reliable accountant like King and Taylor.
