Our Accounting Services

For a fixed monthly fee, we will take care of all your accounting, taxation, business law and company secretarial work. The arrangement is structured to suit each specific client, but the objective is always the same to relieve you of as much of the accounting, payroll and tax functions as is operationally possible and to provide up to date management accounts. You have an entire professional team of registered accountants, tax practitioners and commercial lawyers at your disposal at a fraction of the cost. Not only are you doing less, but it will also cost you less.

Note that the services below can be covered by a negotiated fixed monthly retainer fee and all the comprehensive services will be provided at no extra cost. The services below can also be provided separately, or once-off basis, depending on the needs of the individual or company.
