Hallidays comprehensive Accounts and Audit services help you with the often complicated areas of regulation and compliance. From statutory services to business growth, we have the expertise that you need. Here are just some of the services we can support you with...

Statutory Accounts & Audit

If you are a limited company then you are required to prepare accounts that must be filed with Companies House in a statutory format. We can remove this anxiety by doing this for you. Where an audit is also required we carry out an objective and cost effective audit. We can help you get your records and accounts in to a condition that will make your annual audit a short and painless process. Please contact us to find out how we can help you with this.


We can relieve you and your business of a significant burden by taking care of all your bookkeeping and accounting needs. This ranges from making use of our in-house bookkeeping bureau to the preparation of your annual accounts. We will treat every business individually so that we can tailor our approach to your requirements.

Besides the core bookkeeping, we can also maintain your VAT records, prepare your payroll and take on ad hoc projects to free up valuable time for your team.

We believe that our high level of IT literacy can help improve our efficiency and help our clients to set-up their accounting systems to be efficient and effective. We are Sage Dealers and Developers and Access Accounts professional partners and can supply the right software to suit your specific requirements.

Management Accounts

The most important part of our compliance services is the preparation of periodic management accounts. Monitoring and controlling the financial performance of your business is of paramount importance and regular management information is vital to the continued success of your business. We can either carry out this function for you or help you set-up internal systems to generate the information. We will also take this service one step further by interpreting these figures for you and making suggestions to help you improve your profits or to help your business grow.

Business Valuation

One of our key objectives is to help our clients increase the value of their business. Each year we can carry out a valuation of your business using software developed by the Added Value Network. We will produce a detailed report showing the current value of the business and ideas on how you can maximise its worth.

Business Planning

Every business must plan ahead in order to ensure success, but it is too easy to succumb to the daily pressures of work and delay or ignore strategic planning. The result of poor planning is often rushed and misinformed decisions, over/under capacity, inefficiency and missed opportunities. Every business owner needs to invest time in developing a long-term plan, starting with what you want to achieve from your investment and what your reasons for being in business are, and then developing a plan to help achieve these objectives.

We are well placed to help you develop these plans and have a considerable pool of experience and expertise to draw on. The financial aspects are usually the backbone to any business plan and you need to ensure that this aspect has been adequately dealt with in your plan.

Forensic Accountancy

Civil litigation is a more frequent occurrence in business life. We are not lawyers however we help our clients and their legal representatives by using our accounting skills to make the most out of the financial aspects of litigation.

Company Secretarial

When running a hectic business you cannot afford to use valuable time making sure you are complying with the Companies Act. However you do need to be aware how this legislation affects your company and its directors. We can take away this stress by carrying out the company secretarial duties for you. Our services include:

  • Company formations
  • Preparation and filing of statutory returns
  • Preparation of all documentation (such as minutes and resolutions)
  • Maintenance of statutory books (share register, minute book, etc.)
  • General advice on company law

Xero Support

It will help you to get paid faster and run your business on the move by using the Xero mobile app to reconcile, send invoices and create expense claims. Ask us how we can help.

Business Start-up

Most people who start up in business do so because they have a good business proposition, not because they are experts in the financial aspects of running a business. These factors can often be quite daunting to the entrepreneur and this is where we can help by evaluating your ideas and helping you develop them into a feasible business.

We can also help you:

  • Decide on the most suitable structure for your business (i.e. sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership or limited company).
  • Prepare a business plan, cashflow projections, budgets and trading forecasts to prove the financial viability of your ideas and demonstrate this to the bank / potential investors.
  • Assess your finance requirements and access the most appropriate source of finance to help you establish relationships with banks, solicitors, etc. via our well established network of contacts.
  • Carry out registration procedures with Companies House, Inland Revenue or Customs and Excise.
  • Set up an internal accounting system which complies with statutory requirements.
  • Set targets for everything that matters using our Business One Page Plan
