It never ceases to amaze me how many small businesses spend vast sums on their accounting. In my experience as an accountant and a  franchisee auditor, I see countless small businesses with turnover of less than half a million, spending  £1,2 or even £3k on their year end alone. This goes straight to the bottom line and against their working capital!

At CBCS, we recognise that many small and even medium sized businesses pay too much for their year end accounting. Frequently the process is unnecessarily complicated and drawn out over many weeks as your accountants carry out their checks and analysis of your accounts. Much of this is not needed.

Why spend a fortune using a firm of Chartered Accountants when we can help you prepare your accounts for much less?

We offer a range of Financial Management, Accounting and Bookkeeping services designed to make life easier for you. We can deliver your accounts quickly and accurately to prescribed deadlines and for a fraction of the price:


Suitable for a small Ltd company or sole trader, with only a small number of receipts and payments, supported either by spreadsheet or basic financial packages (e.g. Sage Instant Accounts, Line 50, Quick Books). You require you accounts to be prepared for Companies House and HMRC submission only.

We can prepare your documents for you, either by visiting and collecting on-line. As only a relatively short amount of time will be required to prepare your documents, the charge per hour would be nominal and agreed in advance. Generally the maximum cost of this package will be less than £500. This basic package is designed to help you fulfil your legal obligations and provide you with headline figures for your years trading. There is no need for a comprehensive all singing all dancing accounting service and you can therefore save hundreds of pounds by choosing us to carry out this service.

We also offer two more comprehensive packages , which obviously do cost more, but they provide a great deal more than just your year end accounting. These packages are designed to be flexible, with some overlap. It may be you require a mix of all three for your unique circumstances or that you have more specific requirements, for example a variance analysis of your costs for the last five years, a re-calculation of your fixed asset register, or a thorough scrutiny of your credit control policy. We are happy to discuss all your requirements and to design a financial management package just for you.

Our Principal Advisor, Chris Burton has over twenty- five year’s experience of generating accounts for submission to Companies House. As well as running his own businesses, he has headed up the Finance Team for several companies and is a qualified member of the Institute of Credit Management. If you ask us to provide your financial management requirements, you can be assured of a prompt, accurate and reliable service, with huge potential savings on your costs.
