Services

Before we offer any kind of accountancy services, we have a chat to get to know you and your business. That way we can be sure that what we are offering is going to benefit you and that we are going to be giving you the level of service that is needed.

All businesses and business owners are different and come with varying needs, priorities and challenges which is why we don’t try to fit you into a package. We tailor make our offering to you to suit you and your needs.

Annual Accounts Preparation 

For many business owners the numbers in their business remain a mystery. 

Even when annual accounts have been pulled together there is uncertainty about what the numbers mean. 

We ensure our clients understand exactly what the figures really mean to them. 

Bookkeeping

Most of our clients have switched from keeping paper receipts to use a cloud-based receipt capturing app on their mobile phone. 

This means no lost receipts or piles building up in your glove box.  It gives business owners time back as it is a far more efficient way of tracking business expenses and can be linked up to accountancy software reducing the risk of human error. 

Business Growth Planning and Support

You have got to a certain point in your business and now you are ready to grow.

You may even want to take on staff or get bigger premises.  Do you know what the implications are of making these decisions?

How will expansion affect you from a tax point of view?  We sit down with you and ensure that you are fully informed to enable you to move your business forward in the most prosperous and beneficial way for you. 

Business Start-up Advice 

You have an idea; you may have even started your business, but you have a million and one questions about all the ‘businessey stuff’ you think you should know that everyone else knows. Nobody has all the answers when they first start out.  Why would you know about the best way to register your business, what you can claim for or whether your business name really hits the spot?  

We spend time with many start-up business owners helping them along the way and pointing them in the right direction with the financial side of their business.  This is normally over a coffee where we get to know you and really find out about your dreams and aspirations.  If necessary, we can even match you to a professional business coach to suit you, your style and your needs. 

CIS

CIS sounds like an American Intelligence type of agency but if you’re working as a trades person, chippy, plumber, bricklayer or a labourer then the chances are that you’ll know that you need to be registered for the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). We are experts at CIS and making sure that you get refunded any overpaid tax, yes we’ll get you tax rebates on you 20% CIS deductions.

We also work with construction companies/contractors and sub-contractors to help you manage the CIS payroll and electronic reporting to HMRC to remove the time burden from you, enabling you to build more and to build a fortune.

Company Formation 

There’s so much more to forming a company than simply going on Companies House, choosing a new Limited Company name and handing over a limited company registration fee.

You need to consider things like tax efficient ownership structures, how will the investment into the business be dealt with, how many shareholders and what type of shares. The list is quite daunting, luckily Blaze Monroe are on hand to “hold your hand” through this exciting, but tricky, stage of your business life. 

MLM/Network Marketer Specialist Package 

Jodie has experience of working within the MLM/Network Marketer sector, that means she is ideally placed to help you keep as much of your cash in your back pocket as possible.

Typically, a lot of MLM representatives have a full/part time business alongside their “side business” and this means that quite often there’s an opportunity for a tax rebate. So, whether it’s Herbalife, Utility Warehouse, Arbonne or Forever Living, we’ve got a specialist Network Marketer accountancy solution for you. 

Business Start-up Advice

Payroll

How much time are you spending on running your company payroll each week or month? How much is this costing you? By outsourcing this to us we can save you both time and hassle.

Outsourcing can be far more cost-effective and smooth running than directly employing someone to take on these duties. 

There is no need to worry about cover for holidays or sickness and you won’t need to purchase a payroll system either, we’ll manage your Pension Regulator Auto-Enrolment reports.  We cover everything for you seamlessly meaning you can get on with the real work in the business, the work that generates you an income. 

Self-Assessment Preparation and Submission 

You are great at what you do because you spent time training in it and practising to hone your skills. 

Unless you are a trained accountant its unlikely that you will be aware of all the tax allowances you should be using to ensure you keep as much of your hardearned profit as possible whilst remaining compliant. 

VAT 

Some business owners hate it, often calling themselves “unpaid tax collectors” but all businesses turning over higher than the Value Added Tax (VAT) threshold must register for VAT and correctly account for it.

VAT can be a minefield with flat-rate, cash and accruals schemes plus the penalties for getting it wrong are severe. Why leave it to chance and risk the Customs Team knocking on your door, we can help ensure you get it right. 

Monthly Managed Accounts

This is one of our most popular services. For a set monthly fee (individual to each business and its requirements) we take can take care of all your accountancy needs including annual accounts preparation, bookkeeping, monthly management report, self-assessment and where required payroll and VAT.  

No more panicking that you haven’t stayed on top of your accounts and now need to spend your Christmas holiday pulling your Self-Assessment together and stressing that you haven’t put the right amount of money aside to pay your tax bill.
