Why do I need bookkeeping or accountancy services?
Having accurate and up-to-date financial records is not only a statutory requirement but it also helps you manage critical components of your business. It will enable you to answer questions such as:
How much money is my business owed?
How much money does my business owe?
Are we making enough money to support the business & realise a profit?
Is the business adhering to its statutory responsibilities?
When does the business need to submit a payment to HMRC?
Using an external service to manage your financial records can save you staff overheads, operating costs and vital management time - enabling you to focus on making your business a success.
What are the benefits of outsourcing to The Accounting Pig?
First and foremost, you will be able to spend more time running your business! Additionally, outsourcing means you do not have to have full-time resources on your payroll - therefore no employer overheads such as pensions auto-enrolment, employer's NI contributions. All work will be completed to required timescales, preventing penalties from HMRC. We will provide you with reports, to timing requested by you, so you can see the financial position of your company and how it is performing
What tools or software do you use to manage my accounts?
We will work with you to find the most pragmatic and cost effective solution for your business. All our packages include cloud software as standard, ensuring you are ready for the move to digital tax records by HMRC. We are certified advisors for XERO, QUICKBOOKS and SAGE.....but particularly love Xero.
Are you really paperless?
Yes - we try and make sure everything we do is online. From documents that need signing through to copies of your bills & receipts, we use technology to alleviate those storage issues and trips to the Post Office to send yet another letter.
Can you work at my office?
With the cloud, there really is no need for you to provide space in your offices, immediately saving on overheads such as desk space and utilities. We have a fully equipped office and are always available via the phone, email or even video calls.
Is my company too big/too small for you?
