Accounts are not just for the tax man!

At Phillips we believe that preparing the accounts is more than just counting the numbers and ensuring compliance with current regulations. We seek to understand your business and add value to it by offering both commercial and financial advice. We interpret the results for you and discuss and advise on business performance.

Our objective is to help businesses to maximize their potential. Our general accounts service includes:

  • Preparation of annual accounts for limited companies, sole traders and partnerships
  • Production of monthly or quarterly management accounts
  • Preparation and filing of VAT returns
  • Business plans, cash-flow and profit forecasts and budgets
  • Company secretarial services
  • Business start-ups


Save time and effort and avoid the need to keep up to date with ever changing tax, NI legislation and regulations. We can process your payroll for you, while you concentrate on achieving your business objectives of maximizing profit and growth.

With a Phillips payroll service using Sage Payroll, you can be confident that your business is compliant and that the right people are being paid the right amount on time.

Our service is efficient, confidential and competitively priced.

Our payroll bureau offers advice and assistance with:

  • Calculations of wages and salaries and PAYE and NI contributions in line with statutory requirements
  • Calculations of pension contributions and other deductions
  • End of year reports, P35s, P14s and P60s
  • Forms P11D
  • Calculations of Statutory Maternity Pay
  • National Minimum Wage
  • Calculations of redundancy costs


Not only is each individual tax complicated but the interaction of the various taxes imposed on businesses means that mistakes can be costly either in penalties for non compliance or unnecessary tax liabilities which may have been avoided with the right advice.

The objective of tax planning is simple - to comply with the law and pay as little tax as possible. This seems easy enough but in practice it is very complicated and requires specialist advice.

Tax implications change annually and change with your personal and business circumstances. At Phillips we develop strong and personal relationships with our clients so that we understand your personal and financial circumstances and are therefore able to offer informed advice and explore any opportunities to effect tax savings to you, your family or your business.

We can advise you on the following areas of taxation:

  • Income Tax and Self Assessment
  • Corporation Tax
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • VAT
  • Inheritance Tax
  • PAYE and NI
