Having worked within business organisations before moving into practice, the team at Alpha Business Services are fully aware of the needs of small and medium sized businesses. We are as accountants and business advisors, far more accessible than many of our peers and we believe that within ever changing environments where businesses need to constantly review there positions and react quickly, it is inappropriate not to be able to talk candidly at length with your accountant.

We will provide a solution to all your needs from providing accounts (in a statutory format where limited) to book-keeping and payroll bureau where required.

Customer Testimonials

I’ve use Alan’s services ever since I started in business and I don’t think I’d ever use anyone else.

I’ve been building a web-based accounting app and started with zero knowledge of accountancy. Alan has been an immense help in this task and I genuinely couldn’t have done it without his help. Actually, I probably could have done but I’d have been a few tens of thousands of pounds worse off.

I highly recommend Alan and Alpha Business Services to any one that wants an accountant that goes way beyond the standard tasks of filing end of year accounts


Alan provides exceptional service at a sensible price.

Nothing is too much trouble and he is always willing to go the extra mile with his help and advice.

Sponsorship is an allowable expense for tax purposes provided it is incurred 'wholly and exclusively for the purpose of the business. These are not allowed for tax purposes under general principles however if it can be proved that the cost was necessary for the business (as opposed to personal wellbeing) the costs may be allowed (see Parsons v HMRC).

Budgets are designed to carry out a number of functions within a business, such as planning, evaluating performance, co-ordinating activities and in larger companies, communicating, motivating and authorising actions. There are three components to a budget - namely the Profit and Loss, Balance sheet and Cash flow statements. This will set out the expected sales for each month of the next year. The sales budget should be based upon expected sales volume and prices. A single sales line can be predicted but it can be prepared using more detail such as by product line or by customer (or a combination of the two).
