Lewis Ladd & Co. - Limited Companies & VAT.

We provide accountancy services to our incorporated and unincorporated clients in the form of both preparation of annual financial statements from books and records provided, or the maintenance of our clints' records on our own systems, providing regular management accounts at pre-agreed intervals.

Some clients prefer to outsource the entire accounting function to us in order to free them up to concentrate on running their business. Others prefer to retain responsibility for the day-to-day running of their accounts. We then work with them to provide the information to enable us to prepare year-end accounts and tax returns as cost-effectively as possible. Our approach is to be flexible, always accomodating the requirements of our clients.

Although VAT (Value Added Tax) is a personal tax in that VAT is charged on most of the goods and services we buy as consumers, VAT is commonly referred to as a business tax, and it is only usually businesses that are required to register.

VAT can be the bane of everyone affected by it - we can relieve you of this burden. The complex regime of regulations imposes a tremendous administrative duty on businesses.

Our cost-effective VAT compliance and planning services can relieve you of this burden, and our VAT professionals will help keep your VAT affairs in order, make sure you are collecting the right amounts for each transaction, and ensure that you make payments and file returns on-line and on time.

In addition to providing a comprehensive VAT accounting service, we can also advise on and help with:
