At Ten Forward Finance, we pride ourselves on being able to provide clients expertise in various areas of accounting, tax and business.
It’s important that you don’t treat us merely as an outsourcing cost, but as an integral business partner. We can guide you through the various obstacles you face, whether you’re a small start-up or a large SME.
In this brief blog post, we explain what we do, and how we do it.
What makes us different?
What differentiates us from most of the other antiquated firms is our continuous drive and hunger to remain up-to-date with the latest changes in digital technology.
This means we’re at the forefront of any changes required in the accounting world. A prime example being HMRC’s push towards digital filings, and our affiliations with the likes of Xero and QuickBooks (the major players in cloud accounting) and their associated apps, which allows us to streamline our processes.
Our teams are always on hand when you need them most…
Any company will tell you, you cannot function without the operational side of things running smoothly, and we’re no different. Company secretarial changes, retainers, and new clients are all managed by our central Operations Team.
Meanwhile, our Bookkeeping Team is the face of Ten Forward Finance. Each client is provided with a Client Manager who looks after the monthly bookkeeping, VAT, payroll and month-end management accounts, as well as ensuring any other matters are dealt with swiftly by the relevant person. Our Client Managers are there to alleviate a lot of the stress you face as a business owner when running your day-to-day affairs.
Our Senior Accountants provide you with expert knowledge in the preparation of your company’s financial statements, and personal and corporation tax returns. We are continuously updating our technical knowledge to ensure you remain compliant with the latest accounting standards.
In addition to this, we take pride in identifying the best solutions that help you create the most favourable tax scenarios for you and your business. This can include:
- Basic tax efficient remuneration planning
- Planning in relation to business and personal taxes
- Profit extraction and exit strategies
- R&D Tax Credits and RDEC
- Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) share option scheme
- Other share capital structure planning
- Capital Gains
- Inheritance Tax (IHT) planning
- Employment status and IR35
- Specialist tax planning
Apart from the extensive experience we have in this area, we also have access to vast reference materials and a specialist tax team. This allows us to research any tax topic and provide a number of tax saving opportunities.
That’s not all
To complement the above, we offer a range of advisory services to help you overcome the day-to-day strategic and operational challenges you face as a business owner. We can also advise on the best solutions to help you grow, including how to become more attractive to potential investors.
For the ultimate package, we offer a Virtual Finance Director service at the fraction of the cost that it would take to hire a full-time FD. We’re a trusted source for financial insight, and we care deeply about the health and well-being of your business. Our Virtual FD can help you take an in-depth look at your finances, offering a greater insight to, and analysis of, your business data.
