We understand the specific challenges faced by those in professional legal practices, in complying with legal and reporting requirements relating to the holding, maintaining and controlling of client monies. The detailed reporting is complex and, over the past few years, has been updated in numerous areas. Most solicitors are conversant with the rules and the amendments therein, however, breaches of the rules can occur, which are reportable to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

At Perrys Chartered Accountants, we have detailed knowledge of these rules and the interpretation of them in everyday use with our clients. We act for numerous solicitors in relation to the audit requirements for these regulations. In addition to the audit, we can advise on the rules and provide feedback and recommendations on client accounting along with efficient tax planning.

Property Investment Tax Advice

Specialist tax advice is crucial when it comes to income and gains from land and property, whether you are purchasing your first buy-to-let property, embarking on a new business venture as a property developer or you’re an experienced property investor.

At Perrys Chartered Accountants, we ensure that your business affairs are correctly structured to minimise your current and future tax liabilities to produce the best returns for your investment.

We take the time to discuss your property investment to date and to review your current business structure, to reduce your income tax and corporation tax payments. We also discuss your investment intentions and exit strategy to ensure that we maximise the reliefs available for future capital gains tax and inheritance tax liabilities.

Charities and Non-profits accounting

Perrys Chartered Accountants acts for a wide range of charities and not-for-profit organisations. We understand the unique challenges faced by these bodies, as well as the complexities of rapidly changing regulations and compliance requirements pertaining to audits, and the reporting and recording of financial information in line with best practice.

We also offer our accountancy expertise to foster carers: the caring for children in this arrangement is treated as a business by HMRC and many foster carers are responsible for preparing annual accounts, completing self-assessment tax returns and are liable for income tax and National Insurance.

In addition, we offer day-to-day support with bookkeeping, preparation of accounts and financial statements and also offer proactive advice on tax efficient fundraising and planning.

Construction (CIS Accounting)

One of Perrys Chartered Accountants specialist sectors is building and construction. Under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS), contractors must deduct money from a subcontractor’s payments and pass it on to HMRC – these deductions count as advance payments towards the subcontractor’s tax and National Insurance.

We harness our expertise and knowledge to help construction companies, by providing day-to-day support with bookkeeping, PAYE, preparation of accounts and financial statements and we also prepare VAT returns and ensure CIS compliance is met. Not only that, we will also provide clients with proactive advice which will lawfully allow their business to minimise its tax burden, saving them money and allowing them to concentrate on with what they do best.
