Most people starting up in business do so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through. However, they may not be experts in the legal and financial aspects of running a business and such matters often appear daunting. Fortunately you do not need to be an expert in these fields to succeed in business but you do need the support of a team of trained experts.

We provide a range of compliance services to support all aspects of business administration. 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 other areas of your business.

The combination of your business knowledge and our support services will help your business to grow and increase profitability. Regular management information is vital to the continued success of any business. We work closely with you to get to know your business so we can make suggestions to help improve profits or to develop and grow your business. We can prepare your monthly or quarterly management accounts to ensure you always have reliable and accurate information on which to base your business decisions.

Cook & Partners was established in 1987 and today we continue to build on our enviable reputation for providing excellent advice and first class service to our business and personal clients alike. We specialise in dealing with and assisting owner-managed businesses and in doing so, endeavour to provide best advice and help to both such businesses and those behind them. Additionally, we put an emphasis on providing a very personal service. As well as general accountancy, audit and tax skills, our four Directors also have individual specialist skills, which enable us as a firm to provide clients with a first class service as and when required.

As tax advisers, our objective is to work closely with you to ensure you pay the minimum tax required by law. We will help you to understand the tax implications of your actions, in order that you can plan ahead and conduct your affairs in a tax efficient way. Under Corporation Tax Self Assessment (CTSA), the legal responsibility for correctly calculating the corporation tax liability falls on business owners. We understand the issues facing owner-managed businesses and can prepare tax returns in a timely and efficient manner.
