Core services

  • Management Accounts

    A comprehensive set of management accounts allows your business to make informed decisions for the future.

    At Shaw Gibbs, we advocate the preparation of periodic management accounts, as opposed to waiting until the year-end to gauge your business performance. Our management accounts service can assist you in making informed, timely decisions for the future of your business.

    • We will provide you with a monthly or quarterly management pack, including reports detailing money owed both to and from the company.
    • Our team can review distributable reserves and your ability to pay dividends where applicable.
    • Reviewing expenditure to highlight any reportable benefits provided to employees, other than salary, which may need to be reported separately to HMRC.

    From this, we can help to develop clear key performance indicators for your business, as well as assisting with budgeting and cash flow forecasting.

  • Year end accounts

    Assisting with your year-end (or end of period) accounts preparation, from agreeing timetables to ensuring that technical accounting standards and reporting deadlines have been met.

    It's our belief that year-end accounts should be prepared as soon after the year end as possible, providing you with a finalised picture of your business’ performance and allowing you to best position your business going forward. They may also be required to support income references and meet other reporting requirements.

    By contacting all clients two months before their period end, we ensure that any tax planning opportunities can be explored, as well as agreeing timeframes for preparation.

    We are on hand throughout the year and by providing us with regular updates, we can highlight opportunities and threats for (and to) your business in a timely manner.

  • Consolidated accounts

    Consolidated financial statements are the combined financial statements of a parent company and its subsidiaries. Because consolidated financial statements present an aggregated look at the financial position of a parent and its subsidiaries, they let you gauge the overall health of an entire group of companies as opposed to one company's standalone position.

    At Shaw Gibbs, we can prepare these statements, including: making all relevant adjustments for inter-group transactions, listing costs of investment and dividends as well as recognising minority interests and goodwill where applicable. We can also assist where the financial year of a subsidiary differs from that of the parent company and where interim accounts for that subsidiary need to be prepared to the parent company’s accounting date for consolidation.

Added value services

Business review

At Shaw Gibbs we are also able to offer 'business health checks'. These will include a review of the current position of your business and your aims and ambitions, both for your business and yourselves personally.

Once we have met with you, we will provide you with a written report and recommendations and agree an action plan.

Bespoke reports and references

There are a number of bodies who may ask you to be able to provide them with an Accountant’s Certificate, either to report on your present financial position, on your ability to pay debts or on your ability to service or repay a loan. These often include banks, building societies, insurance companies and lettings agents.

Such references are usually for individuals or small businesses and we can confirm useful information such as how long we have acted for you, your net income and profits reported in preceding periods.

Attendance at board meetings

If you are a sole trader or sole director / shareholder you may find that more regular meetings are beneficial, providing you with a sounding board.

In other organisations, we are also able to attend your monthly or quarterly board meetings. We can attend in any capacity you wish from chair, to a silent observer or minute taker.

Advice on technical accounting issues and standards

Our experienced Business Services team are able to ensure that you receive accurate, high quality financial reporting, providing peace of mind that you are in full compliance with all relevant regulations and standards.
