From Our Website

Wilson Sandford was established in Brighton and Hove, East Sussex in 1982 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. As well as general accountancy and tax skills, our directors and managers also have individual skills, which enable us to provide clients with a first class service as and when required. With our wealth of experience we pride ourselves on delivering an unparalleled service to all clients, what ever their size or sector.


In todays complicated and strictly regulated financial services market, providing independent financial advice requires specialist knowledge. This firm is not authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 but we are able in certain circumstances to offer a limited range of investment services to clients because we are members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. We can provide these investment services if they are an incidental part of the professional services we have been engaged to provide.


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.


We provide a range of compliance services to support all aspects of business administration from our offices in Hove and East Sussex. 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.


Most people starting up in business in the Brighton area so because they have a good business proposition and the enterprise and commitment to see it through. However, they may not be experts in the legal and financial aspects of running a business and such matters often 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.


The combination of your business knowledge and our support services will help your business to grow and increase profitability. Regular management information is vital to the continued success of any business. We work closely with you to get to know your business so we can make suggestions to help improve profits or to develop and grow your business. We can prepare both your monthly or quarterly management accounts as required to ensure you always have reliable and accurate information on which to base your business decisions.


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.
