Value for Money Audits

Some business owners regard the annual audit and preparation of annual accounts as a cost centre - a necessary evil that adds no value to the business - we strive to transform it into a profit centre.

Besides helping you meet the statutory requirements, we also take the opportunity to conduct a review of your financial and management systems. This can often result in our identifying potential problem areas and recommending opportunities to improve your business performance. We discuss the problems and opportunities with you and help you implement any agreed solutions.

Here at Harwood Hutton in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire we see the preparation of your annual report as an opportunity to enhance your external image. A well-prepared report can have a considerable positive impact on the perceptions of investors, potential finance sources, customers, prospects and referral sources, all of which greatly improves your business prospects for the future.

 

Fraud Surveys

Owner managers of smaller managed entities often rely upon the trust of their employees and on informal controls to safeguard business assets. But a weak control environment presents the greatest opportunity for ‘insider fraud’. Our specialists have expertise in undertaking controls reviews specifically with a view to making recommendations aimed at mitigating the risk of fraud.

 

VAT and PAYE Audits

The taxation authorities are continually honing their skills and improving their competence in obtaining sizeable settlements from taxpayers who they investigate. The settlement will include not only the tax due but additionally interest and penalties.

It is vital to rebut incorrect assertions and to have the technical expertise available to ensure that HMRC do not take unfair advantage of the tax payer. Often good negotiation skills are critical in improving the eventual outcome.

Our team in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire have the experience and skills to manage an investigation on your behalf, to protect your position and to give you the support that you will need.

We strongly recommend our Fees Protection Scheme so that you have the reassurance that you can sustain a fight against HMRC without concern about paying our fees.
