“Collaboration is a skill that requires effort and practice” – Douglas B Reeves.

Come and talk with us and let’s see how we can help each other.

Professional services

If all accountants are qualified and experienced, how do you decide who is right for you and your business?

Start by thinking about what help you may need today and what might change in the future. Can your accountant take care of it all, giving you one point of contact and a joined up approach? We can help you with the basics, complying with all relevant tax and financial reporting requirements including audit services and we can help you to reduce your admin, maximise profit, minimise tax, protect your business, plan for growth, succession, retirement and inheritance. No need to change your advisors as your business grows, we've got your back.

Tax Seminars

Tax regulations are an ever changing arena and staying on top of them is a challenge. Let us help you with that. We are happy to host or co - host tax briefing sessions for your staff or your clients on tax related topics. Please call your usual Bates Weston contact to discuss your objectives and how we can help you.
HMRC's determination to make the UK's tax system digital, means business owners will ultimately need to keep digital records. Software is available which can reduce the time you spend on admin and allow us to oversee your business records in real time. That means we can help you get it right first time and give you day to day advice on cash flow, credit control, cost control, profitability, VAT and your tax position. We can work with any online software but actively recommend Xero and are pleased to be a platinum partner. Read more
