Nelson & Co - Our Services





































We assist our clients by removing the "red tape" burden from their shoulders.

We also help clients to get the best out of their business now and - perhaps more importantly - in the future.

Our services include:

  • Business start-up
  • Company formation and company secretarial
  • Limited company accounts and self-assessment company tax returns
  • Sole trader and partnership accounts and self-assessment tax returns
  • Taxation - business and personal
  • Management accounts
  • General business advice

  • Business start-up

    This can be the most important moment in the life of a business. Many small businesses fall by the wayside in their first year but we want you to succeed.

    We want you to focus on what you do best - building your business - while we provide all the necessary background support.

    As a start-up client, our aim is to:

  • Ensure you satisfy all the necessary rules and regulations: meeting all filing and reporting deadlines
  • Opt for the trading vehicle that best suits your business
  • Advise you how to keep good business records
  • Support you with any accounting software requirements
  • Help you with any business plans, cash flows and budgets that may be required
  • General business advice
  • We'll set you up properly, take away the fear of the taxman and help you budget for your tax bills. We'll also suggest ways you can pay less tax than you might have thought.

    Company formation and company secretarial

    Running a limited company can be fraught with time consuming compliance issues. Here at Nelson & Co. we offer a full secretarial service, including:

  • Company formation
  • Registered office address
  • Advice on your responsibilities under company law
  • Completion of all the relevant documents including annual returns and accounts

    Limited company accounts and self-assessment company tax returns
  • Limited company accounts and tax returns now have to be filed online with HMRC in a special 'tagged' format.

    We can give you:

  • An accurate picture of your true financial position
  • Advice on how best to reduce your tax liabilities
  • Peace of mind in knowing that your accounts meet statutory requirements.
  • Confirmation of the corporation tax liability and preparation of the company self-assessment tax return plus online filing.
  • We'll deal with all the technical matters and make sure the company accounts and tax returns are filed on time.

    Sole trader and partnership accounts and self-assessment tax returns

    Sole traders and partnerships need to produce accurate accounts to assess performance and for taxation purposes. We will advise on any potential areas of weakness in your business.

    Self assessment can be a time-consuming and confusing activity for busy individuals. It can also be costly with penalties for missing deadlines. We aim to spare you all these headaches by:

  • Calculating your tax liability
  • Completing and filing your tax return on your behalf
  • Advising you when various tax payments are due and how much to pay
  • Introducing you to any relevant tax saving ideas
  • Representing you in the event of your being selected for enquiry by H.M. Revenue and Customs.
  • We don't just file your tax returns in good time, we will give you advice on how to reduce your tax bills.


    We offer expert advice on all areas of business and personal taxation.

    This will help you to minimise liabilities and gain the maximum advantage from existing legislation in the following areas:

  • Capital Gains Tax (e.g. sale of shares, property or business)
  • Corporation Tax (e.g. how to minimise liabilities)
  • Income Tax (e.g. furnished holiday lettings, Construction Industry Scheme, etc.)
  • Inheritance Tax (e.g. how to reduce the potential 40% tax liability)
  • PAYE and National Insurance (e.g. how to minimise paying NI, golden handshakes, etc.)
  • Value Added Tax (e.g. voluntary registration, recovery of pre-registration VAT, etc.)

    Management accounts
  • The implications of short term financial strategy can be the difference between success and failure for any smaller business. The production of regular management accounts assists dramatically in the decision-making process.

    Regular management accounts can help identify a business' strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for improvement.

    General Business Advice

    We have considerable experience of helping a wide variety of businesses over the last 30 odd years.

    We can help you to avoid the many pitfalls.
