Of course we can take care of all your routine bookkeeping, accounting, taxation, compliance, and company secretarial requirements, to enable you to have more time and resources to run your business.


Here are just some of the services which could make a difference to you:


Business health check


We regularly take a close look at your company’s performance, identifying opportunities and threats, and recommend practical solutions.


Outsourced bookkeeping


We take all the major bookkeeping chores off your hands, leaving you free to focus on your core business. SARKS bookkeeping service ensures that your business financial records are maintained and interim accounts are prepared in an accurate and timely manner which will enable you, for an example, to see what debts are outstanding so that you can manage your cash flow accordingly.


Outsourced management accounts


Management accounts are different from the statutory accounts that we prepare and submit to the authorities (the contents, the way they are prepared and reported etc are totally different). There is no legal requirement to prepare management accounts, but it is hard to run a business effectively without. With a budget, cash flow forecast and management accounts, which analyse recent historical performance, you can work out in advance how you deal with one off large costs and see patterns of costs that should be investigated early on.


These accounts are usually required from Banks and potential customers and most companies produce them regularly on a monthly or quarterly basis.


Outsourced payroll services - Payroll Information in Real Time (RTI)


We at Sarks remove all the hassle of setting up and running a payroll system, while giving you the benefit of our expertise in employment and tax legislation. SARKS payroll service is a comprehensive, reliable and affordable.


Meeting your obligations as an employer can be incredibly daunting especially with the introduction of Real Time Information (RTI). RTI means employers will now share information with HMRC on-or-before payments are made to employees. Sarks uses HMRC-approved RTI-compliant payroll software.


Late payments or underpayments of employers’ deductions can now lead to hefty penalties, so we can help you avoid incurring these.


Sarks can set up your PAYE (Employers’) Scheme with HMRC and advice of whether employees should be added to the payroll or not and deal with the relevant forms and submissions for you. Throughout the year, from the information you supply us, we will calculate your employees’ net pay, report the figures and information to HMRC and provide you with payslips to pass on to your staff. We can file all of your in-year and year end returns for you with HMRC and provide you with P60s to distribute to your employees at the year end.


We can also prepare, where applicable, your benefits and expenses forms such as P11Ds and advice you of any filling requirements or National Insurance that fails due. Benefits and expenses can be a very complicated area and knowing what and where to report can be tricky, but we can relieve you of the burden.
