It is only by knowing where you are that you can know where you are going or indeed how to get there. Accounts are far more important to a business than just complying with a statutory requirement and we can help you to interpret the key performance indicators of your business, and fully understand the figures in your accounts.
Most businesses have a legal obligation to produce at least annual accounts and these should be viewed as an important tool which can go further than just satisfying the immediate need of compliance and be utilised by the business owners to make decisions and shape the future not just to report on the past. Your annual accounts should form part of your overall financial controls so that you know where you are, where you are going, and what you need to do to get there. Thus your accounts can been seen as not just ensuring survival but bringing success.
We produce annual accounts for Limited Companies, in formats required by Companies House, HM Revenue, Banking and other Financial Institutions, as well as accounts for Limited Liability Partnerships, traditional partnerships and sole trade/self employment businesses.
Management Accounts and information
Regular management information is vital to the continued success of any business. We work closely with you to get to know your business so we can make suggestions to help improve profits or to develop and grow your business. We can prepare your monthly or quarterly management accounts to ensure you always have reliable and accurate information on which to base your business decisions.
As a Limited company there are a number of responsibilities to meet and these can be complex and confusing. We can undertake all of these for you. Our services include preparation and filing of annual returns, maintenance of statutory registers, processing of share transfers and allotments, provision of a registered office address, and filing deadline reminders.

We offer support when liaising with banks and other financial institutions. Drawing on our wealth of experience we can support our clients through this often daunting experience.
We can assist with the form filing and hoops to be jumped when applying for grants.

I have used Janita for our company accounts since 2008, I am not from an accounting background, I have found Janita to be patient in explaining what is required for a new business in arranging their financial affairs. More importantly her patience with the time it takes to collate all the required information - with a usual turnaround of 14 days for completion of annual Ltd company accounts. I have recently contracted Janita for our Payroll services.Nick Oliff • Moving Everwhere.co.uk Ltd
