Monthly operating statements that provide a breakdown of sales, cost of sales, and expenses - to give a snapshot of where your business stands and where it’s going
Balance sheets – with an explanation of their relevance so you can understand what’s ‘behind’ the figures.
General ledger reporting – all reports are validated as accurate
Rapid response to your questions and concerns
Payroll processing - with ever-changing legislation changes to payroll taxes, managing this task yourself can be confusing and costly if mistakes are made. Using a professional company to handle your payroll ensures your taxes will be correctly withheld and paid and an orderly system of reporting will be in place.
Tax planning and preparation - more than just year-end tax preparation, the ongoing relationship will help your business plan for tax payments as well as take advantage of deductions and legal tax shelters so you can keep more of your hard-earned money.
The SME Accounting Services' team can provide monthly, quarterly, or annual accounting and reporting to fit your needs
XERO monthly cloud based accounting packages
Cloud accounting service is scalable – you can take as little or as much as you need, without paying for services that you are not using. It is designed to fill in the gaps that you may face when starting up, growing or expanding your business. That could be taking on your accounting, or producing financial reporting to meet the needs of your investors. If you are pre-trading and do not need your reporting monthly, then you can choose something less frequent, like quarterly for example. Or maybe you do not want to hire a full-time person to look after all your finance needs just yet. SME Accounting Services has additional services that include bookkeeping and payroll – so you get all the reporting and get your tax affairs sorted and set up right from day one, all within a pay monthly package that you can easily build your forecasts around. Their monthly service is designed to keep you in control and let you pick and adapt the support and advice you need as you scale. For example, if all you need is more frequent visits with your accountant, then that is all that the company will charge.
XERO Start up package
You might have recently launched your product or service. The last thing you want when starting up your business is a complex accounting service with a big price tag. This package is designed to allow you to focus on running your new business, at the same time maintaining systems that enable your business to grow.
XERO Growth package
Your company is growing, but it is not quite big enough to have internal accounting staff. You start looking at managing resources and ensuring informed decisions are made to enable the business to grow. This package focuses on helping you have more structured systems that are managed in-house.
XERO Expansion package
You might be planning to expand your business into more profitable markets and for you to do this, you need to obtain new investments. As you expand, you will need to consider various shareholding structures to obtain appropriate investments. As you expand into maturity, this package will set you up in readiness for obtaining new investment, preparing financial reports that will provide reasonable assurance for your investors, and performing business valuations for your business.
