The financially challenging environment of today can make running a business a high-pressure, high-risk operation. To safeguard your finances and plan for a prosperous future Southbrook support you and your business at every step of the journey.

The Southbrook team provide accountancy services that are second to none and we can undertake full accountancy services for your business or partial services that suit your business needs.

Our experienced team of specialists offer a range of bespoke accountancy services to help you to meet the financial obligations of your business, whatever its size.

Business Consultancy

Here at Southbrook we understand that a business is more complex than a balance sheet or set of annual accounts. Our team of experts use these financial outputs alongside business drivers that are less easy to measure, for example, market forces, industry dynamics, economic climate, staffing and clients to provide information to help your management team make informed decisions that will help drive the business forward.

Business Plans

Southbrook can help in business planning to support your business through every stage of its growth and development. Whether it’s a simple business plan for a start up business or an in depth strategic business development plan, our team of experts can help evaluate your current situation and plan for the next stage of development.

Part of the process of business planning is to successfully calculate the correct level of funding that is required for each stage of business growth. Statistics show that there is a high failure rate for a small business planning to grow as it often runs out of money before income levels increase sufficiently to support the increased running costs that are needed to drive growth.

Business start-up Support

Many entrepreneurs have a great business proposition but need support and assistance in starting up their business in order to realise their ambitions and long term goals. Setting a business up in the best way for the individual(s) concerned and the type of business and expected growth rate can be crucial in the smooth running of the business from day one. 
Here at Southbrook we can support business startups in many ways including:

  • Evaluation of business ideas providing constructive and realistic feedback
  • Preparation or review of your business plan, cash flow projections and profit forecasts
  • Advise on legal business structure
  • Assistance in setting up an appropriate accounting system that incorporates bookkeeping, payroll and VAT
  • Review of finance requirements and advise on best sources of finance including introductions where relevant

The Southbrook team can also provide ongoing tax planning and tax advice services and we will work hard to maximise business returns.

Company Formations

The Southbrook team can help you assess the pros and cons of various trading options and assist with Companies House registrations and provide other company secretarial services such as the online filing of annual returns and changes to company officials and shareholdings.

Financial Planning

There are four stages in a business’s life cycle. They are Investing Growing, Reaping and Exiting and Southbrook can help guide your business through each of these stages, providing advice, forward planning and solutions throughout.

Here at Southbrook we have considerable experience in this field allowing us to offer a wide range of services tailored to your individual needs including:

Tax Planning

Here at Southbrook we firmly believe that with thoughtful and creative planning, the effect of taxes throughout our clients' lives and also on death can be minimised.

We provide bespoke tax planning advice that is tailored to our clients’ individual circumstances and make recommendations that may include gifts, trusts or tax efficient investments, depending upon our clients' short and long term objectives.


The preparation of quarterly VAT returns usually result from the production of management accounts and forms part of the seamless service we provide for our clients.

It is not however a requirement that we do your bookkeeping or produce your management accounts as we are more than willing to help in the production of a VAT return using information provided by your own records.

We can also advise on VAT registration for your business and complete the necessary paperwork on your behalf.

Wages and Book keeping

Bookkeeping is the foundation stone for accurate management / statutory accounts. This task can be easily underestimated for its complexity and time consuming nature. Our aim would to relieve you of this burden.

We can do your company’s bookkeeping on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis to suit your business needs. We will also keep your customer and supplier invoices up to date and reconcile your bank accounts which will help in the monitoring of your business cash flow.

We can supply regular reports and spread sheets to assist in the smooth running of your business.
