Our accounts preparation services go beyond a set of business accounts prepared for Companies House.

Accounts Preparation

From Champion Accountants, you’ll receive support from a team of expert advisors and qualified accountants to offer insight and guidance that enables your business – or group of businesses – to thrive.

Trusted and reliable accounting records not only ensure that you comply with current legislation but also provide a platform to see the financial health of your business. We utilise this information to make strategic decisions and create long-term growth strategies. We also take the time to help you understand your annual company accounts and identify areas where you can minimise your tax liability through effective tax planning.

Preparing your accounts can be a time-consuming process when juggling a business owner’s many hats, so let our knowledgeable accountants take away the hassle and gather all the necessary financial information on your behalf. Whether it is monthly, quarterly or annually, we can assist you with your accounts preparation.

Our accounts preparation services involve carefully gathering the financial information about your business and converting it into the statutory formats, which in the case of annual accounts, paints an accurate picture of a company’s activity over the previous 12 months.

Accounts preparation is one of the core services that we offer our client base to ensure their organisations continue to grow. Filing a set of financial statements with Companies House is also required by law for compliance purposes to satisfy a Director’s obligations.

Regardless of your business’s size, we have the expertise and knowledge to produce accurate and compliant accounting records for start-ups, large enterprises and complex organisational structures. All the accounting records that we prepare are also subject to a series of internal checks before being signed off, approved and submitted. We can produce:

  • Monthly management accounts
  • Quarterly management accounts
  • Annual end of year accounts

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

“I’m so pleased with our relationship with Champion – honestly, they are brilliant! Their advisors have added so much to our group of businesses and I really value their opinion and viewpoint. The whole team is extremely detail-orientated, unlike other advisors who may skim over things.

“They pick up on even the most minor of points, going on to explain how it could be relevant to X, Y and Z. The staff always go above and beyond – they recently worked on a Saturday helping me meet a deadline for our parent company! Another accountant may have left it because it was outside of normal practice hours, but my client manager worked in his own time to make sure that we met our deadline.

“Champion are a huge asset, especially as they understand the different stakeholders within our business that I need to answer to. It’s really comforting to know that I’ve an experienced and intelligent advisor as an ally, and even though we’re based in London, they’re always happy to come and explain things in detail face to face.”

Jen Thompson, Head of Finance at CRATE Brewery

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

“We needed to change accountant and I’d heard about Champion through my business partner’s brother, who already uses them. We’re a growing company and wanted an accountant who could help us with the whole package. Champion have been great – they don’t just offer us accountancy services, we also receive help from their wider network with HR advice, legal and more. They also do our payroll for a growing team of staff.

“What I really like is that they come in and provide a sounding board for our commercial ideas, guiding us on the right path. They’re so transparent and their contribution has helped us to achieve our best year to-date.”

Craig Turner, Sales Director at Ideal Aluminium Systems

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

“We’ve had a great working relationship with Champion Accountants for a number of years now. Over time, they’ve become an extension of our team. I know I can trust my advisers completely; they know our organisation inside out and have a genuine interest in our success – because they’ve been on our business journey with us.

“We’ve grown significantly in recent years, and as our needs have changed, they’ve adjusted their services to make sure we always have the support we require, allowing us to focus on the bigger picture.

“Running a business can be hectic, but Champion are always on hand to answer any questions. They’re responsive and understand the need for flexibility – it’s not like a traditional accountant where you can only contact them during 9-5. Put simply, the Champion team are a huge asset to our business!”

Emma Elliott, Commercial Director for Unibox

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

“Champion’s Preston team have supported The Royal British Legion for more than 50 years – long before the practice became part of Champion. They assist with our year-end accounts, attending our annual AGM and presenting to our members to act as a true extension of our charity.”

“Over the years, we have outsourced more critical functions to Champion, with them now handling our payroll. The lady who used to manage our wages left us a number of years ago and outsourcing this to Champion was a no brainer.”

“It’s rare to find an accountant who has a vested interest in what you do and that’s exactly why we’ve remained with Champion. Nothing is too much trouble. They’re just a phone call away and the level of service we’ve received has never wavered throughout all these years.”

Scott Niven, Steward at The Royal British Legion

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

“The Champion team quite literally made our business what it is today. In 2014, before we had been introduced to Stephen, we were at risk of having no home for our dementia patients. The building we rented was no longer available to lease, and we were struggling to get funding to purchase a centre as banks wouldn’t accept our two years of accounts. We reached out to Champion having been introduced by a family member, and they were able to get two banks to offer us sufficient funding so that we could buy a premise. Since then we’ve gone on to build a very successful organisation and this would have been impossible without the support of Champion, who went the extra mile for us in our time of need.

“I speak to Stephen as a friend now and am on first name terms with several members of the team. Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to offer the service we do. I’d recommend Champion to any business looking to scale up, with a particular challenge or who just want the support of an honest, reliable accountancy service.”

Duncan Molyneaux, Director at Reflections Wigan CIC
