At Dains, we don’t just produce your accounts and file them at Companies House; we use the information we gather to highlight the financial health of your business – and the areas where we think you can improve.

Annual accounts are a measure of the current financial health of your business and are a powerful tool for management. In the case of many SMEs, the annual accounts are the only piece of verified financial data they receive each year. They also form the basis on which the business' tax position is established.

Our aim is to provide more than just annual accounts preparation. We use your annual accounts as a tool to assist in a proactive approach to advising the direction of your organisation. With the help of one of our skilled advisers, your accounts can pin point positive and negative trends in the business. These areas can be focussed on and, by working closely with you, we can help to add value to your business to ensure that its potential is fully realised. During the course of our work, if associated problems are identified (for example VAT, PAYE or National Insurance) we will make you aware of these issues and assist you in resolving them.

We are keen to work with you on a fixed fee basis that suits your business - and we’re happy to agree fees long before work commences. As part of our fixed fee arrangement you can expect access to professional advice throughout the year ensuring our relationship goes beyond accounts preparation and proactively helps your business succeed. In addition, we will work with you to ensure that you receive information in a timely manner - avoiding unnecessary fines and penalties.

Planning for the future has never been more important and it starts with understanding your history.
