Bookkeeping & Accounting

Our bookkeeping and accounting services provide a flexible and cost-effective solution that can be shaped to meet your needs. Our experts look after all your compliance requirements – including VAT, payroll and statutory or legislative compliance - leaving you to concentrate on growing your business.

And the team is complemented by the wealth of advisory and sector-based teams at MacIntyre Hudson specialising in VAT, HR, and employment and corporate tax.

Plus, as we’re part of the Baker Tilly International network, we can provide you with advice, compliance services and reporting as your business expands beyond the UK. 

Deep knowledge, broad bookkeeping outsourcing

Sector-based knowledge

MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s specialty is in-depth knowledge of multiple sectors; we provide a business services solution specifically designed for each sector. We ensure our reporting is not just numbers but a reflection of your performance in line with your sector.

Finance director services

We can provide an overview of the management and financial reporting; high level assistance with your budgetary and forecast requirements; and give presentations at Board and Annual Meetings. Think of it as an outsourced CFO.

Accounting records

We can update your records wherever it suits you best: 

  • At your offices, at regular intervals.
  • At our offices, using our in-house accounting software.
  • Via remote access into your in-house systems.

VAT and other tax-related reporting

We help prepare VAT and related reporting, inclusive of Intrastat and across the European Union. We provide a fully-managed indirect tax option, liaising with our colleagues (and providing you with a single point of contact) across the EU to ensure that all your obligations are met.

Our review of VAT compliance is designed to identify possible registration requirements across the EU.

Financial management and reporting

  • We can initiate payments via your online banking facility; our client bank management team is separate to the outsource team to ensure that the payments are secure, timely and in line with your approval.
  • We can help prepare your statutory financial statements, and provide support through external inspection or audit - all part of our overall service, not an added extra.
  • Technological advances such as cloud-based accounting are at the heart of our outsourcing solutions.
  • We aim to ensure you have convenient access to your accounting records and reporting through our own apps.
