At West Lancs Chartered Accountants we aim to form a long term relationship with our clients as their trusted advisor. We do this by providing efficient and cost effective solutions to our clients which help them prosper and grow their businesses.

Every business, big or small, should consider hiring an accountant. Many business owners think they can personally handle the accounting, and truth be told, this can often be the biggest mistake a business owner can make. A good accountant can be one of the most worthwhile investments made in the business, and in the end can actually end up saving the company money.

Helping business owners reach their targets. Our passion is helping ambitious businesses achieve success and growth.

To deliver exceptional service to our clients. We do this by providing efficient and cost effective solutions to our clients which help them prosper and grow their businesses.

- We are committed to providing an exceptional service.
- You’ll find us friendly and approachable, we have a ‘no-jargon’ rule and talk your language.
- As we are a start up ourselves, we understand your challenges as we've been through them.


We can help you by making sure accounts are prepared in the correct format, statutory books and other company secretarial records are kept up-to-date and that all statutory returns are prepared. Our experienced team will relieve you of the regulatory burden and leave you more time to concentrate on your core business activities. In short, we will make sure everything is in the right format, in the right place and at the right time.

Accounts produced with the minimum of fuss for your business

- Full annual accounts production by your own dedicated accountant
- Monthly, quarterly or annual management accounts
- Fully HMRC compliant
- Compiled and submitted to Companies House and HMRC

The world is changing. With the move towards digital and the impending introduction of HMRC’s “Making Tax Digital” there is a fundamental shift in the way in which we do business. Online accounting platforms allow businesses to create invoices, pay bills and keep up to date with their finances on the move. Similarly, Making Tax Digital (MTD) is HMRC’s drive to make the UK the most digitally advanced tax system in the world – and will ultimately require businesses to submit quarterly tax returns via digital platforms. At the moment, MTD plans are progressing slowly, but they are moving and we advise businesses to be prepared for it. Adopting cloud accounting is not just about the ability to comply with MTD. That is an additional benefit. There are many other good reasons to consider cloud accounting.

Save Money - Moving to a subscription based managed service saves money on infrastructure and support and there are no more expensive upgrades, up-front licence fees or downtime

Save Time - It’s quicker and easier to update financial records as your bank and other data sources (i.e website sales) can be integrated directly with your accounting data

Ease of Access - You can run your business remotely from any device with an internet connection. From work, home, or on the go, you can be confident that you have an up-to-date picture of how your business is doing, no matter where you are

Security - Cloud accounting is safer and more reliable than storing your valuable financial data on your own computer (which can break, get stolen, or simply misplaced)
