Topping & Company was established by Janet Topping, who has built up a successful practice over the last 16 years. As Director of Sefton Chamber of Commerce & Industry she is well known within the local business community. In November 2007, Janet was joined by Robert Uffendell who has over twenty years experience within the accountancy profession and of advising small and medium sized businesses. With our dedicated team we continue to grow and provide a professional and personal service to our business and personal clients alike.


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. In short, we will make sure everything is in the right format, in the right place and at the right time.


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.


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.


VAT registered businesses act as unpaid tax collectors and are required to account both promptly and accurately for all the tax revenue collected by them. This factsheet highlights some of the areas that you need to consider when running your business. Cash accounting enables a business to account for and pay VAT on the basis of cash received and paid rather than on the basis of invoices issued and received. The factsheet explains the workings of cash accounting. The VAT flat rate scheme for small businesses potentially reduces the administrative burden imposed when operating VAT.
