Focused financial management insight, expertise and guidance for inward investors

You need a UK-based partner that not only thoroughly understands local requirements but also demands at your end. Like the need for frictionless integration with embedded technology systems such as Xledger.

We have the experience and expertise you need across the board to see you through from UK set-up to completion, and beyond.

A partner with the right experience

Having your own people on site yet flying solo, especially in the early stages, may not always be the best call.

An experienced partner with a thorough understanding of UK government and institutional requirements will save you time, reduce your exposure and return better control over your investment. This is of course where we come in.

Preparing the ground

You will have your business case drawn up and approved and your due diligence sorted. But, as they say, you don’t know what you don’t know. Contingencies are of course there to absorb some of the risk, but we can work with you to sense-check your strategy and minimise your exposure even further.

Setting up

With your implementation strategy squared away the real work begins.

Getting your company structure in place and registered with Companies House is your first port of call. You will also need your HMRC (the UK tax authority)  and VAT registration sorted, along with the associated online portal access set up correctly. The process required to set up a UK bank account for a non-UK based entity is also notoriously opaque, and area where the benefits of local knowledge become very apparent.

We can also work with you if you need guidance and recommendations on fit-for-purpose cloud accounting solutions.

Ongoing financial management support and control

Once operations are up and running, UK financial report and compliance requirements will kick-in, along with payroll and payroll tax and AE (Auto enrolment, the UK governments new workplace pensions scheme) management considerations. We can provide ongoing support and assistance with all of these to ensure you continue to meet the relevant UK financial regulatory requirements.

It is often more efficient to incorporate an integrated bookkeeping solution that is fully UK compliant, a service built-in to our service packages.

Xledger experienced

While there are more than 20,000 accounting firms in the UK, only a handful are genuinely conversant with Europe’s leading accounting software solution.

We’ve been using Xledger now for several years, and have developed it as an area of specialist expertise that, combined with our experience in working with entrepreneurial and growth-focused SMEs, means we are very well positioned to work with non UK-based enterprises looking to establish themselves here.

Our dedicated cloud-enabled service removes the administrative burden of in-house bookkeeping whilst providing monthly or quarterly management reporting, enabling you to manage your business more effectively every day using accurate, real time information.

The In4orm system does a lot of the day-to-day bookkeeping heavy lifting for you. Use it to manage the submission of all of your VAT returns, corporation taxes, annual confirmation statements and year-end accounts. We provide you with a dedicated, fully certified chartered accountant to manage your account, available (during UK office hours) whenever you need guidance and support.

As you grow, In4orm grows with you, with additional services such as payroll, cash flow forecasting, budget planning and credit control components available as required.
