From Our Website

Our particular point of excellence is identifying exactly what will best benefit our clients. We do this through our personal approach to developing relationships and our professional skill at understanding your business.

To ensure that your company meets the stringent requirements of The Companies Act, we offer a service for the preparation of statutory returns and filing. We also arrange company formations and provide services in maintaining statutory books, minutes and resolutions.

Whitakers is committed to ensuring our clients receive independent financial advice. This can be arranged by us with advice being provided by Evans Falco, an authorised adviser that is based at our Newquay office.

For clients who require a statutory audit, Whitakers undertakes a financial systems and management review. This review frequently identifies potential difficulties for which we then recommend improvements. Our experienced team has excellent technical knowledge that can pre-empt problems and highlight opportunities while ensuring that your company's financial statements comply with all regulations. Some businesses consider the annual audit and preparation of financial statements as a cost with no value.

We advise new businesses on options, business plans and offer help in projecting costs. We enable new business starters to be set up as Sole Proprietors, Partnerships, LLPs and Limited Companies. Whitakers has extensive experience of securing financial support from private sources, financial institutions, the government and other agencies. Working with all major leading software providers and accounting packages such as Sage, QuickBooks, Kashflow and Xero, we can also help you to install a comprehensive reporting package.

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.
