Your annual accounts should do more than just meet the requirements of HMRC. They are an opportunity to understand your business in greater depth. By understanding how your business performed over the past year the accounts are the starting point for planning for the future. Your accounts will identify where your business is performing well and where change is needed. At FS Accountants we will ensure that your accounts are timely, accurate and meaningful.

“I’ve been in business a long time and had many year end accounts meetings.
None have been as informative as the one I have just had with FS Accountants.”

Tax & Tax Planning

Nobody likes paying tax. Our job is to ensure that you never pay more than you need to.
Whatever area of tax you are concerned with:

  • Corporation tax
  • Income tax
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Inheritance tax
  • VAT

We are here to offer expert advice.

The key to any sound tax strategy is to plan ahead. We can provide you with a detailed report outlining the tax implications of a particular course of action, or perhaps, an informal telephone conversation will be enough. Whatever your tax needs you are in safe hands.

“FS Accountants keep me focused on, not just making profits, but also on keeping them.
What’s the point of making the money if poor tax planning means that I end up giving it away.”


As a contractor or freelancer you are probably an expert in your chosen field. Unfortunately due to regulations like IR35 you may feel that you are expected to be an expert in taxation too.
At FS Accountants we offer simple, straight forward advice to help you negotiate the tax minefield. We will set up your businesses and remuneration structure in the most tax efficient way possible. We will advise you on IR35 and keep you updated of any changes in the rules. Our aim is to take the stress out of dealing with the taxman and ensure you retain as much of your income as possible.

“I work as a contractor in the City of London. FS Accountants advised me on how to
set my business up in the most tax efficient way. They ensured that I am compliant
with all relevant legislation so that I need never worry about the taxman.”

“At the annual Franchisee meeting on Friday I was awarded with Owner of the Year award for the Granada region (30 franchisees) which was a nice surprise but confirmation that the business is moving in the right direction. The award is based on a whole set of different Metrics, some Financial, some Customer Service related, some Subway related, some general business related. I would like to place on record my thanks to FS who have steered me in the right direction and supported me along the way.” MG
