Accountancy & Payroll

“It’s not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It’s the customer who pays the wages.” Henry Ford


We welcome getting to know our clients and establishing close working relationships. This is why we will work with you wherever is most convenient for you – we will happily visit and work with you at your home, your office or alternatively, you may send us your paperwork or share documents on a cloud based system (such as Dropbox) to enable us to work on your affairs at our BCS premises.

BCS provides a full outsourced accountancy service so that you can concentrate on running your business rather than wasting your energy managing your own in-house accounting function or worrying about the preparation of your accounting figures and associated declarations.  

Our services are absolutely flexible so that you can choose to either completely outsource all of your financial functions to us, or alternatively if you prefer, we will work with your in-house accounts team to support them in areas in which they require further expertise and advice. If you wish, we will train your own accounts team up for you so that in time, you will be able to take your accounting functions in-house once you feel confident to do so.

BCS provides accountancy services ranging from straightforward data entry through to financial statement preparation and board reports (including cash flows, budgets and forecasting information).
BCS prepares full year end statutory accounts and associated submissions. We will also work closely with you and your auditor (if applicable) to prepare a complete year end accounts file to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of your year end audit process – reducing your time and worry at your accounting year end.
BCS has a qualified and experienced payroll team fully equipped to run your monthly payroll requirements and deal with the required HMRC submissions. We also supply a full BACS service so that we can remove the stress from you each month by ensuring all of your payments are made in a timely fashion.
