Very simply it means accessing accounting software and data securely over the internet rather than your computer's hard drive. In recent years there has been a shift from desktop accounts software to cloud based systems. There is no one size fits all solution and because of this, at Thomas Westcott, we offer an integrated accounting software service, guiding you from the start of the process - identifying the software needs of your business - right through to being up-and-running with your new system installed, and beyond.

Our audit partners are hands on and each audit is very much partner-led. We work closely with our clients across the South West to fully understand their business and their needs so that we can provide proactive, timely advice. If you are planning an audit, it is likely that your finance team will need to be heavily involved throughout the process. Ensuring that they are prepared in advance of the auditors arriving on site will reduce the stress and minimise interruptio. Not all businesses require a statutory audit.

We follow the accounting standards and legislation appropriate to your organisation including, amongst others, the Companies Act and Charities Act. We also provide these in multiple formats to satisfy all your filing requirements, including iXBRL. Accounting isn't just about end of year, it is a process that should be going on for the whole of the year. At Thomas Westcott, we are passionate about management accounts as it keeps business owners informed about their business and enables them to make informed decisions based on more current information than an end of year set of accounts.

Our practical experience of working with ATOL member clients means that we are up to date on the new regulations and able to provide the best service for our clients. We have seen more of our clients become ATOL holders as they seek to develop niche products and tours, which can help them generate a better margin in an industry which has become more and more challenging. If your existing accountants are no longer ATOL Reporting Accountants, or you would like to discuss the services we can offer then please get in touch with us.
