Accountants in Towcester
As a small business owner, you may have reached a point where you are struggling to balance making your business profitable and successful, with leading a life outside the office doors. Often, when we start out in business, we take on numerous job roles to ensure that our company manages to take off, but eventually it becomes evident that it is impossible to be the Jack of all trades permanently.
At some stage, it will be necessary to delegate parts of running the business to others – that might be in the form of working with a marketing company, so you no longer have to do the hard graft to get your business on the map, or you might opt to funnel some funding into putting together a sales team.
When it comes to crunching numbers, many small business owners choose to work alongside a small business accountant as the process of filing reports and paying taxes can be a little overwhelming, especially for someone who is not all too familiar with it.
It is certainly a wise idea to have experienced accountants who can look after the finances of your business and tend to all tax-related woes that are a hassle to wrap your head around. Based on the requirements that your small business has, you can access services that best suit your business needs.
At Northants Accounting, our small business accountants will help you simplify the accountancy involved with running a business so that you can focus on working on other areas of your business.

Self-Assessment Tax Returns
The UK perhaps has one of the most intricate and largest tax codes in the world, which is why preparing even the simplest tax return can be quite tasking. To add to this, there are several responsibilities and deadlines that you should be aware of as a taxpayer.
As someone who owns a small business and is concentrating on keeping the business a success in a competitive market, it is next to impossible for you to be aware of all the rules and policies that HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) have implemented over the years.
This is where Northants Accounting can come to your rescue and save you from the hassle of filing returns, along with taking care of the other financial obstacles that your small business is expected to encounter along the way.
If you are worried about getting it wrong and are concerned about paying the right taxes at the right time, get in contact with our accountants in Towcester who will be able to guide you through the process as smoothly as possible.
We will help you with the following:
- A complete tax return
- The tax liability you have as a small business owner
- File your return online
- Coordinate with you on the amount that is to be paid along with their respective due dates
We will closely review your self assessment tax return to see if there’s any scope for tax savings and will also check the completed form for any anomalies that need to be taken care of before the return is filed and submitted.
This process will reduce the risk of a HMRC investigation peeking into your tax affairs. And if there are issues with the cash flow of your small business, we will look for opportunities to postpone your tax payments, while also communicating with HMRC on your behalf about what can be done to help alleviate the problem.
When it comes to self-assessment tax returns, we assure you that we will give you a fixed and competitive price that will eliminate all your business accounting worries, leaving room for you to focus on what you do best – running your business.
Auto enrolment is a process that requires all employers across the UK to enrol their employees into a qualifying workplace pension scheme and dutifully make contributions towards it.
If as a small business owner, you fail to comply with this, you’ll be fined by The Pensions Regulator. So, it is best to ensure you are in the loop at all times and one way to do so is to entrust an accountant who can handle these auto enrolment responsibilities for you.
Irrespective of whether you’re a fully established company or a small and medium sized enterprise (SME), setting up a pension for your staff will have never been easier with our accountants in Towcester on your team.
Also, this scheme can be activated whenever you’re ready to do so, whether that’s when you’re at your staging date or when you’re ready to hire new employees in your business.
Previously, it was necessary that HMRC had valid reasoning behind taking up an investigation on a business. However, things have now changed and they no longer need solid grounds to investigate, meaning each and every business is equally at risk of facing an impending tax investigation.
Moreover, when it comes to tax investigations, the expenses that are associated with it often start to add up and even if you’re able to successfully demonstrate to HMRC that your business is ticking all the right boxes, it is money that your business will not get back. With the assistance of the right small business accountant, you can get it done without suffering a huge blow to your finances.
Additionally, by working with our accountants in and around Towcester, you can relax knowing that you’ll get through the investigation as soon as possible with complete peace of mind.
But, how can you stay away from HM Revenue & Customs enquiries?
One of the best paths you can ever take in order to avoid an investigation is to hire an accountant beforehand – remember, prevention rather than cure!
Having an accountant managing your books will help you to ascertain whether your tax return is correct and is in accordance with government rules.
