One of the biggest problems for a website developer is not just waiting for content but when it does arrive, it’s sent it drips and drabs, different formats and most of the time does not make sense.
We set up a website content template which has now beenused by one of our new clients. We are impressed with the amount of information and how simple it is to convert onto the website.
The parts in italic are what he provided us.
Here is what he sent and how it was presented.

By looking after the figures for you we save you time and cut out potentially costly mistakes. This saves you money in the long term and allows you to be do what you’re good at…your business!
Personalised Accounts Service
You can meet with your accountant as much, or as little, as you like. Whether you need a somebody to ‘hold your hand’ and look after all your bookkeeping and accounts or just someone to chat with regarding any issues you may be facing and to check over your own work, RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd can help you out. It’s a bespoke service to suit you and also help us to gain an understanding of how your business works.
A common complaint we hear from clients that come to see us is that their previous accountant has sprung a surprise bill on them, often for services that they did not realise they were getting. We will agree what services will be provided and offer a monthly fee so that everyone knows where they stand from one month to the next. There will be no year-end bill once your accounts are complete so you will know exactly what you will be paying from day one. This makes your financial planning much easier.
Small Business & Start-Up
RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd are passionate about helping start-ups and small businesses to grow their businesses. We are aware of the issues that small businesses face and endeavour to use our experience to help them get over them. We can provide you with peace of mind that your accounts and tax returns will be filed on time and avoid any nasty penalties.
Based in the Furness peninsular, we want to work alongside businesses and help them to achieve their goals and grow. We know how important and valuable a good bookkeeper and accountant is to a business.
What we do
At RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd we believe in a jargon-free, personal service for all our clients. We will decipher your numbers in a way to make them easy for you to understand and what they mean to your business.

Whether you are a new start-up, setting up your first business, or a well-established limited company with employees, RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd will be able to help you out.
We believe that working with your accountant should be a pleasure, not a chore. We are friendly and approachable and adopt the attitude that there’s no such thing as a stupid question. This gives our clients the confidence to come to us with whatever issues they have knowing we will listen, not judge.
You won’t be hit with unexpected bills by RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd. We will agree our services with you and you will pay a monthly fee, regardless of how long it takes us. No hourly billing, no nasty year-end surprises, just clear understandable pricing.
Due to the way we work, we will be in touch with you on a regular basis. Gone are the days where your accountant calls you when your accounts are due asking for your paperwork for the whole year.

We can track your turnover on a monthly basis ensuring you do not cross the VAT threshold without knowing.

Property Investors/Estate Agents
Ensure you remain fully compliant with your HMRC duties whilst keeping yourself competitive in the market.
Preparing statutory accounts is a service we offer to keep businesses compliant in meeting their legal obligations.
We offer a bookkeeping service which can work hand-in-hand with accounts preparation or alternatively, we can use the records you keep.
We will ensure your accounts are submitted on time and conform to the necessary accounting standards according to the Companies House Act.
As part of this service we will also calculate and submit your Corporation Tax to HMRC. Rest assured that all your responsibilities will be looked after in a timely and efficient manner.
Included in your statutory accounts are the following:
- Preparation of financial statements.
- Bookkeeping (if required).
- Interim management accounts (if required).
- VAT administration (if required).
These statutory accounts can help us to identify areas that may be of concern and allow us, alongside yourself, to act in order to improve your business.
Keeping accurate records is a fundamental part of running any business. Too many business owners are spending too long on their bookkeeping duties. In reality, this is false economy. By spending this time on your bookkeeping you are taking time away from growing and developing your business. By outsourcing bookkeeping to RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd, not only will you eliminate errors but as a result you will have more time for your business. The result is more time, more money and no HMRC penalties.

You will get a service that suits your needs. After an initial meeting discussing what you need from us we will create a bespoke package for you. We will always be at the end of a phone or an email, without extra cost, to answer any queries and discuss your accounts.
Payroll is an ever-changing landscape with untold complexities. For new businesses that are just starting to employ staff, it can be a daunting as well as time consuming experience.
RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd can take on your payroll for you, ensuring all your submissions are done correctly and on time and offer advice on aspects of payroll such as:
- Minimum wage
- Apprentice rates
- Maternity pay
- Sick pay
- Disciplinary procedures
We can take care of P45’s, P60’s and P11d’s not to mention SMP, SSP and CIS calculations amongst everything else your payroll may entail. Your company’s auto enrolment pension scheme is also in safe hands with us; we work with a number of auto enrolment providers and will set up your pension and have your contributions submitted on time. We constantly monitor changes in the industry and update our clients as necessary.
By leaving the admin to us it will relieve you, as the employer, of the stress of payroll. As an added bonus, you will know that all your staff will have the correct deductions to their pay and will contribute to a happier workplace and great atmosphere for all involved.
Getting regular management accounts will allow you to keep a tight grip on your business’ finances. Having the ability to see how your business is performing from one period to another will give you the freedom to make informed financial decisions with up to date and accurate figures.
We’re all unique and each of us has a different perception of what is the right way to do certain tasks, as well as how often we should revisit them. You can have your management accounts at agreed intervals to suit you. You might choose monthly, bi-monthly or just twice a year, if you like, it’s your decision.
We won’t just drop the management accounts in your inbox for you to try to muddle through either. You can opt to have the management accounts coincide with a face-to-face meeting (or video/phone call if it’s more convenient). If you feel you don’t need to see us, you will be sent a brief commentary which will decipher the figures, telling you exactly what they mean to you and your business.
Management accounts are a great tool to use to help you with your financial planning. They give you an accurate insight into your business at any given moment in time and can be used to compare against budgets for your business.
Small businesses and their owners often struggle to master their numbers as there are so many different jobs they need to do. Having access to management accounts is a fantastic way to negate this, they also allow you to set targets for following years as well as spot patterns in your trading history meaning you can better plan for fluctuations in future.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to make use of this service. We’re here to help you grow your business in a way you would like.
As your small business and turnover grows, you will eventually need to register for VAT. Many small businesses do not realise at which point they cross the VAT threshold and as a result will become liable to penalties from HMRC.
RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd will take on this responsibility on your behalf. We will carefully track your turnover and let you know when you are approaching the threshold and help you to prepare for it. VAT can be extremely daunting with strict deadlines and due dates. The VAT service works perfectly with our monthly bookkeeping as we will be fully aware of your figures on a month-to-month basis.
We will ensure your returns are submitted in a timely manner to avoid any penalties. They will be accurate so you do not overpay what you owe, and you may even have VAT to reclaim.
Cloud Accounting Solution
The cloud accounting revolution is responsible for the biggest shake-up in the accounting industry for over 20 years. We believe that as a forward-thinking accounts practice, cloud accounting software is the only way to go. Cloud accounting removes most of the need for paper and we are currently striving to be a paper-free practice in order to do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint.
We have access to some of the most popular software on the market where you will be free to log-in and view our accounts at any time. Some clients like to take care of their own bookkeeping and have us check over it on a monthly basis to ensure everything is being posted the correct account codes. The software is jargon free and is targeted to make it easier to understand for users that are not from an accounts background.
Other clients prefer our experts to gather data and input the information to the software. You will still have access and the freedom to view the accounts whenever you like from wherever you like. Here at RSS Bookkeeping & Accounts Ltd, we recognise that everybody has a unique way of working and as such we will create a bespoke package for all our clients to suit their preferences.
Any documents that are uploaded will be stored securely in ‘the cloud’ and will be available for viewing at any time for anyone with access. With HMRC’s plans for Making Tax Digital in full swing, we are certain that cloud accounting is the best way forward to be ready for any changes. There is no need for costly desktop packages requiring daily back-ups, everything is at your fingertips on whichever device you choose.
Cloud accounting packages will allow you to:
- Link automatic bank feeds to ensure up to date account balances
- Reconcile bank accounts.
- Create and send invoices.
- Full reporting facilities.
- Integrate with apps to snap and upload receipts and invoices.
