Team Zoo! Where to begin, they excel in all things accounting related as well as helping us as a business (Twenty 20 Signs) to grow and develop. The notion of making everything digital really modernises and simplifies so many elements of our business. Such a great bunch and always there for a chat, couldn't recommend enough! More...

Such a great fun company to work with. The receipt bank system has transformed our business and has saved us loads of time and paper work has been drastically reduced - I would recommend Zoo Accounting for all accounting and business needs!

The support we’ve received from Zoo Accounting is second to none, even before we were a client Wayne was helping us making better decisions. After seeing the benefits of his advice in action we felt safe in knowing Zoo had us covered….Only a couple of months later we became Zoo Client after being with our existing accountant for 19 years. We’ve only with Zoo client for 4 months and we’re already seeing the impact of joining them. Here’s just a couple of ways they’ve helped… 1. Saving Time - We all know admin is a killer. Zoo’s slick processes and software solutions have enabled us to save over 60 hours a month in administration on tasks such as; expenses, quoting and invoicing, ultimately giving us more time to concentrate on winning more business. 2. Financial Clarity – We were keen to check out Cloud Accounting, however not knowing how painful the migration we didn’t feel comfortable making the jump with our previous accountant. However, Zoo made this jump seem like a tiny step, offering us both on-site support and remote support. Once we were up and running, we saw the benefits the same day, giving us real-time information on; customer spend, cash flow, product performance and outstanding invoices. I can honestly say, without Zoo we wouldn’t have had the confidence to make this change. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Wayne and his team at Zoo and recommended booking a meeting with him to see how he can help you.

Wayne and Zeta were both repeatedly recommended to us. After a bad experience we were really sceptical to trust anyone else with our accounts. After the first initial meeting we knew we had made the right decision. Both of their professional and dedication excels them. Nothing is ever too much trouble and queries are answered quickly no matter the time or day. We couldn’t recommend Wayne and Zeta’s services enough, they are not only our accountants but now our friends. More...

I own a Limited company and was looking for help with the accounts side of the business. I contacted a number of Certified Xero Advisors and decided Zoo was the best fit for me. Wayne and Zeta are very professional and helpful with no problem being too big or small. I'm looking forward to developing our relationship as the business grows. Thanks! More...

A chance meeting at our managed offices with Wayne and Zeta of Zoo Accounting has led to a most agreeable relationship. They have assisted my business and saved me money in ways that I have never been shown by advisors before. Not only are they accountants but they have a most credible knowledge of how businesses work assisting and participating in business plans, contracts of employment and tax issues amongst many. I like their professional yet friendly approach and I am never hesitant about asking them for advice no matter how trivial it is. I can’t recommend them highly enough. More...

PACKAGES
Our packages are flexible, you can choose one as shown below or customise to suit you. Add-ons can also be utilised to make the service you receive exactly what you need to make your business seamless.



Our Purely Compliance Package
We ensure you are fully compliant with HMRC by filing all necessary information including managing your VAT returns, statutory accounts, confirmation statements, corporation and self-assessment tax returns, plus set you up on Xero software

Our Advanced Package
As well as everything you get on the Standard package, we will also provide regular management accounts with quarterly reviews.

Our Growth Package
Utilise our Virtual Commercial Accountant service to help you see the shape of your future business. We are experienced in growing businesses and we will support you with strategic business planning, budgeting, cashflow forecasts and funding.

Many business and sole traders make use of just basic support from their accountant, but sooner or later they run into problems. The answers probably lie in the numbers but they aren’t always in a fit state to utilise.

Using traditional accounting is not the solution. Using an outdated approach of only having last financial year’s figures as a basis for decisions won’t move the business forward. With Xero, you have up-to-date information at your fingertips, the same information we can access to advise and assist you to drive your performance.

We love making a difference to our clients.
No matter what mess you feel your affairs are in, we can help. We're also very commercial and great at saving you money!

You wont find a service like ours in our industry, we have a genuine interest in all of our clients so it's important for us to be a good fit for each other to ensure you get the absolute most form us as you accountants/ business advisers.

Services

In order to ensure you have up to date lists of receivables and payables, and up to date financial reporting, we’ll login to your Xero accounting system regularly and reconcile the bank transactions so you can rely on the accuracy of the information.

Xero charge a monthly subscription for using their software. Rather than paying multiple invoices for Xero and Accountancy, this allows you to consolidate everything into one monthly fee so you have just one payment coming out of your account each month.

Rather than a set of accounts just once a year, you receive a fully reconciled set of accounts each month or each quarter, with a report pack containing your Profit & Loss account, Balance Sheet, Aged Debtors & Creditors, Cashflow Summary and an Executive Summary giving you the top-level information. We can also add in any further reports required (budget analysis, departmental reporting etc). Alongside the report pack, the main value we add is our analysis and commentary on the monthly or quarterly performance, as your external trusted advisers

A lot of accountants will wait until the end of the year when they typically tell you to make any purchases before your year end, so you can make savings on your tax. This is the most basic form of tax planning and at that stage is too late. We implement our Pre-Year End Tax Planning Review 3 months before your year end so we can start making a real impact and minimise the tax you have to pay.

As a limited company, you are required to prepare statutory accounts and submit these to Companies House annually. This is all included within your quote and you will have peace of mind knowing that this is all taken care of for you. You are also required to file a Corporation Tax Return annually with HMRC. We’ll take care of everything that HMRC require and inform you of the corporation tax payment required in plenty of time.

We will be preparing and submitting your quarterly VAT returns ongoing, meaning that you will be well aware of your VAT liabilities and keep the VAT-man happy! We’re not just filing a bunch of numbers though, we take a 6 step approach to our VAT Returns service: 1. Create a recurring quarterly job in our job management system so we NEVER miss a deadline and begin work on the VAT return the day after the quarter end 2. Carry out an audit of ALL transactions for the period - check that purchase VAT has been claimed on every transaction that it should have been and conversely that it hasn't been claimed where it shouldn't have been 3. Ensure that you are on the best scheme to maximise your cashflow - Cash or Accruals. Also keep an eye on going over the threshold at which you HAVE to move to accruals by obligation 4. Send you notification of the amount due within 3 weeks of the quarter end, giving you 2 weeks notice of the amount to be paid to HMRC 5. File the VAT return on time, every time 6. Deal with any queries, enquiries or investigations from HMRC so you don't have to get involved, allowing you to focus on running your business and avoiding further cost of bringing us into an investigation.

Monthly preparation and filing of the company payroll to HMRC and providing monthly or weekly payslips to employees. We will also advise on opportunities to reduce your PAYE bill, such as the £3k employer's allowance that is currently available to reduce your employer's national insurance bill.

We will deal with all your year end payroll obligations, such as making your year end submissions to HMRC and producing P60 certificates for each of your employees. Also, if you provide benefits to your employees – cars, private medical insurance, gym membership, etc – we will prepare and file the annual P11D form to HMRC.

Along with preparing the company accounts and tax returns, we will also prepare your personal Directors'/ Partners' tax returns. These are required to declare your personal income (Salary & Dividends/ Profits) for the year.

Companies House require an annual return be submitted to them giving details of the company address, Directors, Shareholders and Principal activity of the business on the anniversary of the company formation, we will take this .
