\r\n Question Any Small Business accountants around?\r\n

\r\n Hello,
\r\n
\r\nSince there\'s a huge range of different talent here on YD, I thought I\'d throw this one out there and see what comes back.
\r\n
\r\nI\'m setting up a ltd company, which I expect to trade very little in its first couple of years. (Ltd company won out over sole trader after careful consideration). I\'ve been keeping receipts etc for some time, and reckon I\'ll also be able to sell some equipment back to myself to save some tax.
\r\n
\r\nI\'ll be looking for someone who can consolidate my normal tax return (as I will initially in full-time PAYE employement) with my small business taxes and I will need an annual audit for Companies House.
\r\n
\r\nWhat I need, is an accountant.
\r\n
\r\nWould anyone care to share their experiences with this sort of thing? Recommendations on how to select a good accountant, possibly even recommendations of good accountants that you know (maybe you are one?) and some kind of indication of how much I should expect to pay for this sort of service (ballpark)?
\r\n
\r\nAny comments most gratefully received,
\r\n
\r\nRegards, Yvonne\r\n

    What exactly was the careful consideration?
    \nWhat do you estimate your turnover to be per annum?

    \r\n I would recommend joining the Federation of Small Businesses. It is about £80 p/a but is well worth it in my experience (I am part of a family business - I do the boring accounts bit/not a qualified accountant though). Part of the FSB membership entitles you to get free legal advice (not legal services though!).
    \n
    \nBest way to get an accountant is by word of mouth - if you know any business people in your area. Otherwise, I would recommend phoning a few accountancy firms and asking them in to tout for your business. You will be able to tell which ones would probably be good for you by the advice they offer. Honestly, the ones that are "on the ball" and looking out for your interests stand out a mile from the ones that just want to "do the books and leave everything else to you". Also, youu can ask them if the can give you any business references where you can enquire about their reputation.
    \n
    \nI would also recommend (if finances allow) to chose an accountant asap - if you are new to running a business it is very easy to overlook something you "should have done" or not keep records correctly so that when you have to submit a tax form (eg P11D) you will have a lot of work in getting the information together.
    \n
    \nGood luck with the new venture.
    \n
    \nAnother recommedation would be to join the TPS/FPS/MPS (telephone/fax/mail preference services - which is free to do and does dramaticacally cut down on the junk faxes (esp) you get arriving at the office. Search online for them - I even have my home address/phone registered!\r\n

    \r\n Choosing the right accountant to take care of your taxation and earnings makes a huge difference in your business and life. The accountant should have a genuine passion to help clients, tax law knowledge, a willingness to improve their skills and be able to communicate advice in a simple and clear way. So, you should be very careful while hiring an accountant for your financial needs\r\n

    \r\n We often encounter unprofessional employees. This complicates the process. Every business matters in business. I advise you to see the registere comapny in singaproe. This service maintains an excellent accounting report. If you have been looking for help in this matter for a long time, then this is exactly what you need. I am glad that now I am cooperating with this service.\r\n

      Question Any Small Business accountants around?

      Hello,

      Since there's a huge range of different talent here on YD, I thought I'd throw this one out there and see what comes back.

      I'm setting up a ltd company, which I expect to trade very little in its first couple of years. (Ltd company won out over sole trader after careful consideration). I've been keeping receipts etc for some time, and reckon I'll also be able to sell some equipment back to myself to save some tax.

      I'll be looking for someone who can consolidate my normal tax return (as I will initially in full-time PAYE employement) with my small business taxes and I will need an annual audit for Companies House.

      What I need, is an accountant.

      Would anyone care to share their experiences with this sort of thing? Recommendations on how to select a good accountant, possibly even recommendations of good accountants that you know (maybe you are one?) and some kind of indication of how much I should expect to pay for this sort of service (ballpark)?

      Any comments most gratefully received,

      Regards, Yvonne
