By getting to know you and your business we aim to become an indispensable member of your team. We always want to exceed your expectations and go that step further.
We offer our clients Fixed Fee Agreements. Under this arrangement we don't charge by the hour. Before we commence work, you know the cost up-front so you have peace of mind and no surprise bills. Kilby Fox will provide you with unlimited access to the entire Kilby Fox team for advice on ad-hoc matters. This means that you can call on us at any time knowing that you will not be charged for the time or advice.
Every business must plan ahead in order to ensure success, but it is too easy to succumb to the daily pressures of work and delay or ignore strategic planning. The result of poor planning is often rushed and misinformed decisions, over/under capacity, inefficiency and missed opportunities.
Every business owner needs to invest time in developing a long-term plan, starting with what you want to achieve from your investment and what your reasons for being in business are, and then developing a plan to help achieve these objectives.
A business plan must, above all, be used as an integral part of the management process. We are well placed to help you develop a business plan and have a considerable pool of experience and expertise to draw upon.
One of our key objectives is to help our clients increase the value of their business. We will produce a detailed report showing the current value of the business and ideas on how you can maximise its worth.
When running a hectic business you cannot afford to use valuable time making sure you are complying with the Companies Act. However you do need to be aware how this legislation affects your company and its directors. We can help by carrying out the company secretarial duties for you. Our services include:
- Company formations
- Preparation and filing of statutory returns
- Preparation of all documentation
- Maintenance and storage of statutory books (share register, minute book, etc)
- General advice on company law
We are able to form limited companies electronically with our latest piece of software that corresponds directly with Companies House. This makes the process much quicker and cost effective and also means your Statutory Books, Share Certificates and Incorporation Certificates are all in electronic format!
Monitoring and controlling the financial performance of your business is of paramount importance and regular management information is vital to the success of your business. We can prepare periodic management accounts for you or help you set up internal systems to generate the information you need.
But information is of no use without understanding. We will take this service one step further by interpreting the information for you and making suggestions to help you improve your profits and help your business grow.
Cash Flow Forecasts
Cash Flow forecasts are a vital tool to assist you in planning and driving your business forward and negotiating the required facilities with your bankers. We can prepare cash flow forecasts to enable you to determine the Financial Requirements of your business and walk you through them step by step.
Business Start Ups
Starting up a new business can be one of the most daunting experiences both professionally and personally. Where do you start and what do you need to do first? We can take the burden of those compliance issues from you. We offer a one-off package for whatever type of business you are thinking about setting up. We will give you a free initial consultation to see what needs to be done, after which we can set everything up for you, so you can focus your attention on what you do best and start the pounds rolling in.
Business Development & Marketing Services
If you need assistance with getting your business noticed or finding cost efficient ways of reaching your target audience, contact Kilby Fox. We have a dedicated team to help with your marketing and business development needs. We will structure a plan over a set period of time with as little or as much input from our clients. We can set up systems for monitoring and controlling marketing activity to help you get the best results.
Personalised Cash Book
Kilby Fox are constantly on the look out for ways to improve the service that we provide for our clients. It has been suggested that Personalised Cash Books may appeal to cash book based clients. These are a much cheaper and easier way of recording and analysing out payments and receipts. We can put these together, with your guidance, creating only the columns that you require. We can create as many pages as you need for each year which will mean you can have individual cash books for each accounting year. Making it much easier to keep your records up to date once you have brought your books and records in for your accounts to be produced.
Accredited Sage Reseller
As Sage resellers, we are able to pass on substantial discounts and offer as much or as little training as you wish, from our dedicated in-house bookkeeping team. Our aim is to help you help your business by ensuring your accounting systems are the best that they can be.
Professional Fee Protection
How would you like to pay your accountant an additional £4,000 this year...?
Since the advent of the Self-Assessment regime, HMRC have randomly selected individuals and businesses for investigation. Not the most scientific approach you may feel but, nevertheless, it does mean that if you submit a tax return you are immediately entered into the Revenues free prize draw to win your very own investigation!
If the Revenue selects you - often with no warning, and without you having done anything wrong - their investigations can go on for months, even years. And if you want professional help to clear your name, the fees can quickly add up to a lot of money - typically you can expect a simple investigation to cost you a minimum of £4,000!
The good news is, that from as little as £37.00 per year, you can now insure yourself so that the insurance company picks up the cost - whatever that may be - through Kilby Fox Professional Fee Protection (PFP). Then you can concentrate on clearing your name, instead of worrying about how you're going to pay for it.
Provided that we have prepared your tax return and that return was not in a penalty position upon submission then you qualify for PFP cover. Getting the insurance couldn't be easier - just contact us.
Budget day has come and gone - but what does it really mean to you? It's very tempting to rely on what the papers say as they calculate the effect on the "average family" or make generalised statements on tax changes. But what you really need to know is exactly what the Budget means to you and what you can do to start cutting your tax bills.
That's why we've launched a new fixed price Budget Review service to explain in detail what the budget really means to you and what you can do to start cutting your tax bills down to size. Simply contact us and we'll explain free of charge and without obligation what our Budget Review service could do for you.
