Licensed trade businesses

Running any business can be hard, with endless calls on your resources and time. Having a team of people to help can make a real difference, especially a team that wants to make your life easier.

We – at Milsted Langdon accountants in Bath, Bristol, Taunton and Yeovil – have years of experience in helping those in your trade. Therefore, YOU have all the expertise needed to help you and your business.

Spend your valuable time where your skills are best suited, be it running your business, or having an evening off! Let us take care of the time consuming record keeping and administration.

From as little as £85 per month, you can have a cost-effective and efficient outsourcing alternative to dealing with business record-keeping and administration issues in-house. Let us take on the challenge of saving you more money than we will cost you!

  • A service second to none
    We are here to help you. We can pick up your records, saving you the time away from your enterprise. We are always available on the phone should you need quick advice and, should you need to meet someone for those more complex issues, all you need to do is call one of our team and we will be happy to spend time at your table, helping with whatever you need.
  • Help with your stocktaking
    We have joined with one of the best ILTSA qualified stocktakers in the business to make sure that, not only will you have a perfectly accurate stock list whenever you need it, but you will also have available to you all the information you need to assist with wet and dry pricing, reducing wastage and increasing your profit overall.
  • Periodic management accounts
    Need to know more about your business? Monthly, Quarterly or Half-Yearly accounts can be produced at your request, with a guarantee that you’ll have them complete within 14 days from receipt of your records. After all, what is the point in knowing how your pub is doing months after the fact? Let us extract, analyse and interpret the detail, to let you make informed decisions.
  • Payroll
    With the recent changes to payroll real time information (RTI) and auto-enrolment, should it get a bit much we can offer an all-inclusive service, making sure that your wages are processed quickly, wage slips are provided, as well as advising you, with regards to pensions/auto-enrolment and other compliance matters. All you will need to do is let us know the hours!
  • VAT/Machine games duty
    We can help with all aspects, from setting up the scheme most suitable to you, to completing your quarterly returns. All you need to do is provide us with your invoices and statements and we can do the rest.
  • Self-Assessment Tax Return
    Each April, your tax return becomes due. Ask us to help and together we can drive that tax bill down at the end of each year, making sure you are paying the lowest tax bill possible to HMRC.
  • Software options
    Our team is fluent with all forms of IT, having experienced staff in Xero, Sage, Quickbooks, Excel and most other common software. Should you need any help with your computer’s systems, all you need to do is ask.
