I have been using the services of DBF Associates since I established my own business in the UK in 2003. DBF Associates have provided me with a professional service that takes care of all my accounting and tax needs. I find this ideal for me as a one-man consulting company and I do not need to be distracted by dealing with the detail of my accounting and tax matters. I have been very happy to recommend DBF Associates to other people and have received very positive feed back following those referrals.

During the lifetime of an individual tax payer, partnership or other business, it is quite likely that there will be some form of enquiry made by either the Inland Revenue or Customs and Excise. Enquiries or investigations of this type are very often selected on a random basis. Have you ever considered the possible cost of an HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) investigation? HMRC have powers to investigate income tax and corporation tax payers at random, and the number of these investigations is expected to increase dramatically over future years.


DBF have formed a partnership with Pennisula to provide our clients with a firm that specialises in Employment Law and Health & Safety.

The cash flow forecast aids you to distinguish any major adjustments made to your bank account and cash enabling you to take action if needed. The forecast will enable you to view how investment in capital items influence the cash flow and the growth of the business.
