Elite Small Business Accounting

As an owner of a small business, you have various important regulations and taxes imposed upon you by HMRC. It’s vital that these requirements are legally complied in order to avoid any financial penalties and help grow your business successfully.

As experienced accounting professionals, Elite Business Accounting can help you avoid common pitfalls. In fact, we’re on a mission to make small business accounting easier with our friendly, dedicated team of number crunchers, VAT masters, Xero accounting software whizzes and tax experts!

What is a small business?

A small business may operate as a sole trader, partnership or a limited company. It is always privately owned, and if it is a limited company, it has fewer than 50 employees and a turnover of under £6.5 million. It is also eligible for certain grants, tax benefits and discounts.

At Elite Business Accounting, we have experience in accounting for all types of SMEs, particularly those in the creative industry.

If you’re unsure which company structure would best suit your start-up or existing enterprise best, then our team can advise you and discuss whether you might be able to take advantage of certain small business and government incentives.

Do I need an accountant for my small business?

Every small business is different, and some individuals have a natural affinity for finance so that they possess the skills themselves. Whilst there is no legal requirement to employ a certified accountant to handle your accounts, it can save you an awful lot of time and money in the long run.

The question you probably have to ask yourself is whether you have time to commit to fully understanding and undertaking all your bookkeeping and accounting responsibilities.

As an expert in your creative field, you may decide you’ll be much better off delegating your finances so you can fully focus on your business and its growth.

What does a small business accountant do?

Our accountants can provide the same services to small businesses that an in-house financial expert might offer but at a fraction of the price.

A full-time accountant is rarely needed within a small business, yet having a firm handle all your income and expenses, tax, VAT returns, and financial status is crucial for your company’s stability and growth.
