Financial forecasting

Everyone knows that a successful business must plan ahead, but all too often the pressures of keeping the business going on a daily basis mean that strategic planning is not given the attention it needs. At the same time, having access to up to date, accurate information is vital in enabling your business to develop a successful strategy. The result of having too little time for planning and limited management information is often rushed judgements, over or under-capacity, or missed opportunities.
LeeP financial can assist in the preparation of your forecasts and furnish you with timely management financial information to help you establish your strategy, make informed business decisions and achieve your long term goals.

LeeP also prepare financial evaluations of any business options you might be considering, for example, you may be seeking to employ more people, acquire a new fixed asset or even acquire a new business. Whatever the reason, financial forecasting is essential to determine the cash requirements and the viability of your business thereby allowing you to make informed decisions and to continue along your growth trajectory.

Payroll services

Paying your staff and in many owner-run businesses, yourself, is one of the most important things your business does on a regular basis. Getting it wrong can mean upset employees, overdue payments or even fines from HMRC. Payroll management involves a lot of complex calculations with frequently changing regulations which can be a costly burden for some businesses.

In addition to the above, for owner-run businesses, we can give advice on how best to structure your payments to optimise your personal tax burden whilst ensuring you comply with all aspects of HMRC.

Our payroll service offers:

Weekly and monthly payroll runs
Payslip preparation
End of year annual returns
Advising you of PAYE/NI payments to be made
