Products & Services

Bookkeeping is critical because every business needs to maintain accurate and readily accessible financial records to meet best practice and regulatory standards. Legal requirements aside, keeping accurate records and everything in order, makes doing business much easier.

But not all businesses have the in-house skill, time or knowledge to do it properly. Keeping records might sound easy, but mistakes can happen if your bookkeeper is unqualified or inexperienced. Small mistakes can go unnoticed and might cause problems further down the line when your accounts are due.

That’s why we offer a full range of bookkeeping and administrative support services, which will allow you to spend more time on the day-to-day running of your business.

We offer a full range of year-end accounting services for Sole Traders, Partnerships, Limited Companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) .

We’ve been providing our tailored year-end accounts service to satisfied clients for nearly 50 years. No matter what your business requirements, we’re confident that we can provide you with a first-class service.

We work closely with our clients to ensure that financial objectives are met, all compliance issues are addressed, tax saving opportunities are maximised and time efficiency is optimised.

Cloud accounting is where your accounting software sends data to and from the "cloud". The cloud is a metaphor for a remote computer server (or collection of remote servers), as opposed to a server you own that is based in your office. Your accounting software itself might also be located and accessed in the cloud, instead of being loaded onto your computer. Financial software that promotes accuracy and collaboration within your business is of utmost importance because it results in a clearer understanding of your accounts, efficiency and savings.

Assurance Reports are a quicker and more affordable way to demonstrate the credibility of your financial statements and the health of your business. For some small and medium-sized businesses, the costs of a statutory audit can outweigh the perceived benefits. However, there are other forms of assurance that are more cost-effective and can be better suited to the needs of smaller businesses. A review engagement can often offer the solution - meeting the needs of smaller companies without the cost of a full statutory audit.

Bridging finance is another funding option available to you. This type of financing can be put in place very quickly, it is often used to purchase property but can also be used for a number of business purposes where finance is required in a hurry. Usual bridging scenarios are auction purchases, equity release, payment of tax bills, property refurbishment and development. We can have loan terms agreed within a matter of days on the majority of bridging cases, allowing you a quick route to completion.

Our team of qualified tax specialists have extensive knowledge and experience dealing with all issues relating to capital gains tax. We consistently save our clients significant amounts of tax through our advice and implementation of proactive planning and mitigation methods. Capital gains tax refers to the tax payable on the profit made when an asset is sold or disposed of. The allowances and reliefs that can be claimed change regularly with legislation and rates can vary from 10% to 28%. Therefore it is vital to seek professional advice and put in place effective pre-transaction plans before disposing of an asset to minimise, defer or even eliminate the tax burden and maximise the available relief.

Invoice finance allows funds to be drawn against invoices as they are raised, not when your customer pays you. Unlike traditional bank overdrafts, invoice finance facilities actually grow as your turnover increases, which means they are suitable for both start-up and growing businesses. As a client of Aston Shaw, you'll benefit from specialist advice and tailored support - those things come as standard. You can call, email or pop into any one of our offices as much as you like and we'll always do our very best to assist you.
