  • The name of the company secretary (if you have one),
  • Company/LLP logos,

  • A description (quantity, charge, VAT rate, total VAT, discount, sterling VAT equivalents if in another currency), which identifies the goods or services supplied.

Instruct us to act as your accountant and rest assured that we will assist you to comply with all relevant legal business stationery disclosure requirements, together with assisting you in general accounting and taxation matters. We shall also be mindful of your overall tax exposure and we shall actively seek proven techniques to improve your finances.
