From Our Website

SKG Business Services was established in 2003 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 have many clients in the local community, and service businesses, small and large, across many sectors. As well as accountancy, audit and tax skills, our two partners also have individual specialisms which enable us to provide clients with a first class tailored service. With our wealth of experience we pride ourselves on delivering an unparalleled service to all clients, whatever their size or sector.


In today's complicated and strictly regulated financial services market, providing independent financial advice requires specialist knowledge. Whether you have one employee or 100 employees, auto enrolment places significant responsibilities on an employer. Employers need to enrol many of their employees into a work based pension scheme and pay some pension contributions.


Your professional and personal goals are central to our consulting services; we take the time to get to know you better so we can offer the best advice. Our management consultancy service can review your credit control, stock control, budgeting and financial reporting systems and allow you to take full control of these key areas of your business. We can also help you address specific problem areas in your business such as gross profit, cost control and stock valuation. Effective management information will allow you to seize opportunities when they arise or identify problems quickly so you can take effective corrective action.


Most people starting up in business do so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through. Most however are not experts in the legal and financial aspects of running a business and such matters can 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.


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.


We know that numbers can take the fun out of running a business, so our dedicated team will deal with all of your accounting needs so you can concentrate on what you are great at. Whether you're an established business or just starting out, we will work with you to find solutions to your finance and business problems, either at our Gateshead office or onsite with you. We can help take your business to the next level with our range of services, tailored to your requirements. Our expert team will go above and beyond to ensure you have everything you need to reach your aspirations.
