Innovation, Communication and IT

We have an array of clients operating in the hi-tech service delivery environment, from PR, Design and Marketing agencies to Engineering Design and Architect’s practices to IT Support and Web Hosting companies.

A common thread throughout these businesses is generally how integrated their internal systems are with third party platforms and generally how advanced they are in adopting cloud solutions and storage.

To assist clients with this infrastructure we can offer clients an online accounting solution through our partnership with Xero. Please click here to see the benefits of cloud accounting.

A significant number of our clients in this sector are innovating (without even knowing it!) not only in terms of products but in terms of processes and we have helped them claim millions of pounds in Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credits. We are extremely experienced in evaluating and presenting claims to HMRC. For more information on R&D Tax Credits please click here.

As the adage goes ‘information is power’ and when that information is recent, relevant and reliable and is on your own company’s financial and non-financial data it enables you to make informed business decisions and demonstrate a key discipline to interested third parties. We work with our clients through their online accounting system to access dashboards that can give varying data and printable reports on up to date KPIs and trends such that surprises are few and far between.

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is one of the biggest shake ups since the introduction of Self-Assessment in the mid-1990s in terms of how businesses must interact with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). However it has not been widely promoted by HMRC and as a result many businesses aren’t aware it affects them and soon! Click here to find out more about Making Tax Digital (MTD).
