Business plans & budgets

To run your business profitably and efficiently you need to plan and monitor your performance.

This entails creating a business plan and budget, both for the immediate year ahead and for the longer time frame, in order to know when and how much investment.

Compliance with statutory requirements

A private company is required to file its accounts at Companies House within 9 months of the year-end. The company will be liable to a fine if it fails to do so. In order to avoid this AJR & Co will produce statutory accounts, suitable for filing, within the required period. Submit the accounts to the Registrar of companies, Complete and submit the annual return along with any other forms required by law to be files at Companies House and maintain the statutory books.

Bookkeeping service, advice and software

We can advise on which accounting software would be best suited for your business. Although we have clients who use a variety of different bookkeeping software, by preference we recommend Xero and can offer our clients a discounted Xero account.

We also use Receipt Bank to share and sort receipts and invoices and offer this software to all our clients who it would benefit.
