Retail

Heart of the high street

Even though the retail industry has faced a number of challenges over the last few years, it still remains at the centre of society. Retail doesn’t just include the more traditional bricks and mortar establishments, but increasingly eCommerce as well.

Whether you’re an onlineretailer or have several physical premises, our expert retail accountants are on hand to make things run as smoothly as possible.

Our team will work with you to register for VAT (if you should need to), organise your filings and submit your returns.

Because VAT has several different rates for retail, we will help you understand which applies to your goods and services, and help you get systems in place to record everything correctly, so you can rest assured you’re charging the right amount and, in turn, pay HMRC what you owe.

We’ll also cover all of your back-of-house administrative tasks such as payroll, and your self-assessment tax return (or corporation tax return if you’re a limited company).

Also, to help you throughout the year, we can keep on top of your books and accounts, and can monitor your income, expenses, and even projected cashflow to spot problems ahead.

We can also help you plan your business journey. Starting with business planning, evaluating your progress and even setting out an exit strategy.

If you’re ready to take the next step please get in touch.
