  • Certificate of incorporation
  • Memorandum of association
  • Articles of association

We will also supply you with share certificates for all subscriber shareholders, and a copy of our guidance booklet “What to do with my new company?… Connecting you to the legislation”

Company Annual Accounts and Corporation Tax Return

Companies using a computerised bookkeeping system or maintaining Excel records – £750

Companies with manual or no records – £900

Our fixed fee annual accounts and corporation tax service allows you to fulfil your legal requirements as a company director, by letting us prepare and submit your accounts and tax returns to the relevant authorities, using the required formats (iXbrl) and the relevant accounting standards and tax legislation.

This service includes the following:

  • Preparation and submission of abbreviated accounts to Companies House
  • Preparation of company tax return (CT600) under current tax laws
  • Submission of CT600 and relevant accounts to HM Revenue & Customs
  • Provision of 1 bound copy of the full company accounts for company retention

Registering a company for a payroll scheme tends to take roughly a week, but this tends to depend on how long we have to wait for the necessary codes and reference numbers issued by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

We will ask you for some details about you as the employer, and about each individual employee that needs to be included within the scheme.  We will then submit all this information to HMRC on your behalf and keep you informed of the progress and of what steps need to be taken next.
