If you do not have the time, the resources or the experience, we can take the weight off your shoulders by providing a fully computerised comprehensive bookkeeping service, using our experienced in-house staff. We will maintain all the records required, produce VAT Returns and Accounts and provide you with the reports needed to help run your business, such as who owes you money and who you need to pay. Our dedicated team will also ensure that you maximize your cash-flow to your best advantage.

Alternatively, rather than a full service, we can provide you detailed advice on how to set up or improve your own book-keeping, or just help with your quarterly VAT Returns. We are flexible enough to provide the service you need, when you need it and at the right price!


Constantly changing regulations and the growing demands of HMRC mean that VAT compliance can be a difficult administrative process. We can help to ensure that you comply with the regulations and that overpayments are not made. We provide cost efficient services that can include:

  • Assistance with VAT registration
  • Establishing effective VAT controls and reconciliation processes
  • Guidance on VAT planning and administration
  • Preparation of quarterly VAT returns
  • Negotiating with HMRC in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals if necessary

Tax Returns

Completing a tax return can be stressful experience, even if there are only a few entries to make. There are various filing deadlines to meet, depending on personal circumstances and as those deadlines approach, the task can seem more and more daunting.

HM Revenue and Customs may ask you to complete a Tax Return if you have complex tax affairs or if you receive:

  • Rent or other income from land or property
  • Income from overseas
  • Income from self-employment or from a partnership business
  • Other income which is received gross, i.e. without tax deducted

At FSBC we can help by:

  • Completing your tax return
  • Calculating your final tax liability
  • Filing the return online
  • Identifying the amounts to be paid and when they are due

We can also analyze your self assessment tax return to see what tax savings could be made, and we can also review the form to see if there are any anomalies that should be addressed before submission. This way we help to minimise the risk of a Revenue investigation into your tax affairs.

If you commit to providing the relevant information within a reasonable timescale , we will offer a fixed, competitive price to take the worry away when it comes to self assessment tax returns, allowing you to concentrate on the more important things in life.
