I need my personal Tax Return completed - what information do you need from me?

This will be different for each client. Generally, we'll need details of all sources of income, together with any expenditure incurred in generating that income. We'll advise you on what expenditure is allowable against tax.

We are thinking of hiring a bookkeeper for a few days a week, why should we use you instead?

SND are passionate about advocating the benefits of good bookkeeping within a company. Whether it be a small business which simply needs to have good recording keeping in paper format, or a larger company which requires the use of an accountancy package, good bookkeeping always results in a better run business. SND can offer professional bookkeeping for all its clients, tailored to your specific needs.

What expenses can I claim?

This varies greatly depending on the nature of your business however it does highlight the importance of having an accountant. We regularly meet clients who are not claiming legitimate business expenses and help them to identify and rectify these.

Can you save me money?

By keeping your accounts up to date, you will be able to plan and make more informed decisions day to day, therefore avoiding costly mistakes. We will also ensure that you are claiming for all your business expenses.

My small business is struggling, can you offer any advice?

Yes, we offer a comprehensive consultancy service, please get in touch with details of your business and we will see what we can do for you.

Do you offer services remotely?

Yes, if you live a distance from our offices we can offer all our services remotely. We currently have clients from all over the UK. 

Do you charge a setup fee, like some other accountancy firms?

No, you will only be charged the agreed fixed monthly fee.

How do I change accountants?

Changing accountants may seem daunting but the reality is that it's incredibly easy. If you already have an accountant acting for you and want to switch, all you need do is to provide us with the details of your previous accountant, and we'll do the rest. 

I’ve recently started my business, when should I look for an accountant?

It is wise to engage with an accountant as soon as possible. By hiring an accountant, you will gain specialist help and support from day one, whether it's helping you register with HMRC or assisting you with the best way to record your transactions.

Is it worth investing in accountancy software?

Accountancy software is an invaluable tool when used correctly. We come across many businesses who use an accountancy package and the information is more confusing than if presented in a carrier bag! For many small businesses a simple Excel spreadsheet (which we can design for you) is just as effective.

My previous accountant used to charge me once a year which resulted in cash flow difficulties, can you make this easier?

We know that every business is different, within the current climate we find that many of our clients prefer to pay us in easy monthly instalments. This is calculated and agreed between SND and our client prior to any work being undertaken.
