Chalmers & Co
The preparation of accounts is at the core of services that we provide and we prepare annual accounts for all sizes and types of business from whatever books and records are made available to us.
The format of accounts and the interpretation of financial reporting standards are complex. Also, HM Revenue & Customs in particular are insisting on more detailed and accurate record keeping. Our team of trained and experienced accounting technicians will ensure that your accounts always comply with current requirements. Specialist software is used to ensure that the process is as efficient as it can be so that more time can be spent interpreting the results with you and advising you rather than just processing the numbers. We will report any significant areas of weakness in the systems and controls and offer advice on more efficient ways of running and developing your business.
We also appreciate that many business owners and managers, who are fully occupied with the day-to-day task of managing their business, may be reluctant to employ additional staff to cope with the extra workload. We have therefore developed a range of business support services to provide a cost-effective solution for today’s business owner.
Purchase and installation of Sage software.
Development of management information systems and computerised accounting systems.
Training for your staff and ongoing IT support.
Maintaining manual or computerised records of receipts and payments, sales ledger, purchase ledger and nominal ledger
As well as maintaining adequate business records we recognise that to manage any business successfully, managers require up-to-date information to provide a basis for effective decision making and to be able to plan for the future. We are also able to provide or assist in the production of:
Management Accounts to supplement the annual accounts and to interpret and recommend subsequent courses of action.
Cash flow forecasts to establish borrowing requirements
Business plans to assist with raising finance
Budgets to help measure business performance
Product and service costings to help increase profitability
