Flexible and cost effective bookkeeping

Bookkeeping & VAT

Every business has a duty to keep records of their work and transactions, and to file tax returns in line with legal and fiscal obligations. At CCF, we provide a flexible and cost effective bookkeeping and/or VAT service to suit all business requirements, tailored to match your needs.

Business owners are usually experts in their own field, but are not fully trained bookkeepers. That's where we step in.

Bookkeeping service

We can tailor the support level to suit your needs.

We prepare Corporation Tax returns at the same time as annual accounts

We can manage the whole process for clients wanting to focus on running their business and delegate the whole of the bookkeeping system to us. This involves entering sales invoices, setting up the credit control, recording details of all income and expenditure.

Many clients prefer to maintain control of the sales invoice process and keeping track of payments received from their customers. In this case we can take control of accurately recording the expenses.

For our VAT registered bookkeeping clients, we will also prepare and file the VAT returns.

This is usually done remotely from our offices, but in some cases we visit the client’s premises to complete the work.

VAT ‘check & file’ Service

Some of our clients choose to look after their own bookkeeping processes. We contribute by checking and making any corrections before filing the VAT returns. Alternatively, we provide the feedback so they can file the returns themselves.

Many of our clients began as ‘Check & File’. Our commitment to building relationships has led to much closer working links.

  • We pride ourselves on a fast, friendly service tailor-made to each client’s requirements
  • We offer a personalised service, with a dedicated team member allocated to each client to ensure fast and informed responses to queries
  • Our trustworthy and reliable processes reduce the risk of VAT investigations
  • We can set up Xero and QuickBooks accounts for clients where required and provide training and support

We also handle:-

  • Government Gateway management; – access and sight of liabilities and payments, liaise with HMRC on our clients’ behalf

For CCF clients, it’s all about investing to save, outsourcing to achieve improved understanding and a better service.

What our clients say about us

“CCF provides a very efficient service and real peace of mind that our book-keeping, accounts & tax affairs are being looked after, reviewed and dealt with in a timely manner. They are also very accessible and a great bunch of people.”

Director – Legal Services Business

“They offer a personal service; always helpful, reliable and supportive. I am so grateful that they provided good, clear advice during these troubled times.”

Director – Independent Financial Adviser

“I'm autistic, with dyscalculia and an absolute terror of numbers and anything financial. But CCF are always so kind, patient, reassuring and never make me feel stupid. They are also a safe pair of hands - I always know that my tax return will be submitted on time and am grateful for you sorting out my rubbish spreadsheet and any 'brown envelopes' that come along.”
