Annual Accounts Preparation

Every trading business has a statutory obligation to prepare accounts, in the main, on an annual basis to enable you to agree your tax liability with HM Revenue & Customs. In addition, Limited Companies have a further obligation to file their accounts at Companies House. At Shapcotts Accountants we look to assist your business not just with the preparation but by also carrying out a number of key objectives to help in the future.

These are to:

  • Minimise tax liability
  • Cut costs and make expense savings
  • Maximise profit margins
  • Review compliance with trade regulations
  • Review compliance with legal obligations

We aim to have a full understanding of your business, how your business stands financially and can, if required, help you plan for
the future.

We prepare accounts for sole traders, partnerships, limited liability partnerships (LLPs), Limited companies as well as a number of other special entities (i.e charities).

As part of our services we have introduced Shapcotts Business Academy. This is a series of free Webinars that is run several times during the year.

The webinar called “You and the Taxman – Accounts and Taxation” covers the areas of what is included in your accounts, what they look like, and how it all links together.

If you would like to Register for this free Webinar or find out when the next Webinar is, head to our website and view the Webinars page.


We are registered to carry out audits. Not all companies require an audit and for those that do not we can still prepare accounts to comply with the requirement of the Companies Act.

Whether your audit is voluntary or compulsory at Shapcotts we will undertake your company audit in a timely and efficient manner to give an excellent service and build strong client relationships. Although this work is based on a statutory requirement we will endeavour to add value by providing advice and support based on the audited accounts.

Please contact us today on 01332 680540 to discuss your needs.
