Adding value is at the heart of what we do. So whilst we can prepare a set of financial statements which are fully compliant with accounting regulations, this is only the first step: we also interpret them and translate them into your language, whatever that might be.
If you are interested in the intricacies of amortisation policies, we will happily discuss these with you. But if you want to know how the numbers suggest you might increase your gross margin, we can also advise on this, too. We want to talk your language.

Audit and Annual Accounts
Many business owners regard the annual audit and preparation of annual accounts as a cost centre – a necessary evil that adds no value to the business – but we strive to transform it into a profit centre.
Alongside helping you meet the statutory requirements, we use the annual audit and accounts preparation as an opportunity to conduct a review of your financial and management systems. This often identifies potential problem areas as well as opportunities to improve your business performance which – following discussions with you – we can resolve.
Ultimately, we want to make your numbers talk to you by assisting in the interpretation of your accounts. This is vital to the continued success of your business.
Good management reporting is vital to the success of any business; it is the cornerstone of sound decision-making and successful forward planning.

- Plan and control cash collections, stock levels, expenses, etc
- Make decisions on pricing, capital investment, marketing, risk minimisation, etc
- Identify unclaimed VAT, supplier overpayments, and areas of capital allowances
- Provide key financial and non-financial performance indicators as well as departmental analysis (such as analysis by branch, salesperson, employee, project, vehicle).

Grant Due Diligence
Grants are a hugely beneficial source of finance for businesses but the amount of red-tape and form-filling which accompany them can be overwhelming.

iXBRL accounts have been required by HMRC for some time now but their gateway can be extremely selective. And HMRC themselves are becoming a lot more prescriptive with regards to the level of detail and year-on-year consistency of the data collected. At Langtons, we produce iXBRL accounts first-time to ensure that your tax returns are accurate and submitted ahead of the deadlines.
