Many accounting firms offer a very simple but limited service. They will prepare your accounts from your accounting records and produce sets of reports to comply with your obligations.

Although this is fine, we believe that you would like a better service.

If you engage Murphy Thompson Moore as your accountants, we will fullfill the accounting needs and build a complete picture of your businesses financial position as we do this.  We’ll also prepare meaningful reports that explain the detail behind the numbers and what this means for the future of your business.

We will discuss the financial progress of your business at regular meetings or telephone conferences.

Your records can be informative about the recent past, but they can also serve as a useful guide to the coming year by helping you pick out trends and prepare for the year ahead.

We can carry out our work for you using cloud accounting software or desktop software. Where we use cloud accounting software, you will be able to log in to your accounting records and work entirely independently of any work we may be doing for you. If you have desktop accounting software we can connect remotely using Remote Desktop or other similar software.

If you are in business you need to keep up to date business records, ensuring you comply with HMRC's requirements. These requirements include ensuring your records up to date by regular maintenance and are never more than three months behind at any time.

At Murphy Thompson Moore we can deal with the maintenance of your records for you.  Alternatively we can assist you with software and training to enable you to undertake this task yourself.   We can tailor our working processes to suite your needs by using either desktop or cloud based accounting software.  For smaller businesses, custom spreadsheets can make your records much more easy to manage.  We can advise as to the best system for your business.

Some clients prefer to concentrate solely on their business and will rely on us to provide a complete bookkeeping and accounting package. We’re very happy to meet this requirement as part of our service which can be incorporated in our fixed fee service.

For VAT registered clients, we can maintain your records as part of our VAT preparation and filing service.

If you wish to discuss how we can help you maintain your business records, please Contact us for a discussion and we will be happy to advise.

If you have employees, you will need to operate payroll. You can do this using a payroll bureau or you can ask us, as your accountants, to do this for you.

Payroll requires regular, efficient calculation of pay due and submission of payment information to HMRC on or before payment is made. The current system required by HMRC is called RTI. This stands for Real Time Information.

An added complexity of employing staff is that you now need to set up a Workplace Pension Scheme.  For many employers this can be a daunting prospect.  Considerable preparation is involved and if you have a “staging date” (which means you have been notified of the date by which you must have a work place pension in place by the Pension Service, you need to act now)

Payroll and set up of work place pensions are best handled by your accountant. There are a number of providers in the market and costs can vary significantly. So can the value of contributions to your employees eventual pension.

We recommend an early discussion with Murphy Thompson Moore so that we can assess your current position, determine if you need a payroll scheme and whether or not you need to have a work place pension.

We can run your payroll efficiently and in line with your normal pay frequencies. Our simple monthly fee covers all pay runs, leavers and joiners and end of year processing.

If you already have a payroll scheme and are considering a transfer, please be reassured that transfer of an existing payroll is handled by our team for you, leaving you free to concentrate on your business.

The profits of your business are subject to tax. The tax you pay will depend on the structure of your business.  For limited companies profits are taxable under the corporation tax system, whereas sole traders and partnerships are dealt with in the self-assessment system.
