ACCOUNTS WITHOUT THE JARGON
HOW WE WORK
We make running your business as easy as possible. When you first start out you might not even know what you need from an accountacy practice. Thats why we offer free, no pressure and informal consultations to get you on the right path straight away.
END TO END SERVICE
From business plans, forming your new company and bookkeeping to wages with auto enrolment, VAT and annual accounts we offer a multitude of business services that will save you time and money.
Once we've had our intial consultation we'll tell you about the servies we think you need and even provide a fixed quote if that's what you'd like. We can also help you to swap from your old accountants. We'll request all of the documentation and let them know you're switching over to us.
MEET STEAD ROBINSON
Stead Robinson Chartered Accountants was founded in 1984 by Andrew Stead and Phillip Robinson. In May 1996 Philip Lofthouse joined the partnership and after the retirement of Andrew Stead and Philip Robinson in 2003 and 2004 Philip Lofthouse took over the business. We're now a team of 10 and we take time to build relationships with our clients, so it's very likely you'll know the person you're speaking to when you pick up the phone - no international call centres for us, Yorkshire accents and friendliness all the way!
We exist to make running your business easy - our success comes from your success so we do everything we can to keep you on the right path. Our friendly experienced team of accountants work together to give you exceptional service. No two businesses are the same and you will get a tailored service that is right for you. We also love to help out in our local community as part of Honley Business Association. We help put up Christmas lights, organise summer festivals, put up St Georges flags on St Georges day and perhaps most importantly, make sure everyone knows when it's Yorkshire day!
Accountancy is changing; gone are the days of massive piles of paper and boxes full of receipts and in is the internet and mobile technology; it is making life so much easier! We have access to the latest platforms that make managing the finances of your business easy, you can see how your bank is doing, balance your books, assign invoices and e-sign documents anywhere in the world at any time as long as you have access to the internet.
You'll have to do a tax return if you're self employed, a company director or you have other sources of income outside of your normal job such as if you own and rent out property.
HMRC sends a tax return for you to complete so they can work out how much tax you owe or are owed by HMRC.
With our in depth knowledge of the UK tax system, we'll ensure you only pay the tax you're required to pay by law - our tax returns often pay for themselves many times over!
Annual accounts are prepared based on the financial activity of your limited company, the main purpose of them is to prepare a company tax return for HMRC and estimate the amount of corporation tax that you will owe.
Using Stead Robinson to create and file your accounts with Companies House has the potential to save you a lot of corporation tax when your company tax return is due. It's at this point we can give you tax advice that could grow your company and reduce your tax liability this year and in years to come.
Payroll can take up a lot of time especially since HMRC introduced Real Time Information (RTI). Stead Robinson can administer your payroll as a stand alone service so you can get on with running your company.
Our payroll services include weekly, monthly or annual processing, payroll reports, customised or generic payslips as well as taxable benefits, advice on tax and national insurance payable and much more. Get in touch to see what we can do for you.
