We provide a range of outsourcing services

Larking Gowen offers a wide range of cost-effective accounting services that allow you to get on with the job of growing your business and making it a success.

We have an experienced team that can look after all your accounting tasks from bookkeeping and payroll to the role of financial controller.

Our knowledge of your business means you'll have accurate, up-to-date accounting information to base your decisions on whenever you need it.

Good bookkeeping and accounting gives you useful management information on a day-to-day basis and accurate year end business accounts.

We can help with all aspects of your business accounting and bookkeeping including:

  • Data entry and reconciliations
  • Payments processing
  • Preparation and submission of VAT returns
  • Credit and ledger controls

We can help with your business management accounts, forecasts and budgets, giving you a better understanding of how the business is performing, as well as identifying potential cost savings and areas of concern. We can attend board meetings to help with important decision making.

Reliable management accounts are also useful if you want to raise external finance.

Better credit control management will improve your cash flow, result in lower finance charges and reduce the risk of bad debts. We can advise you on credit control or give you a full service that includes following up on payment of debts. 

If your business needs temporary or long-term support in your finance team, for example to cover sickness, holidays or parental leave, we can provide a fully trained member of staff from our own teams who will make sure that all your requirements are met.

We can also review your processes and suggest areas of improvement.

Changes to payroll legislation, such as Real Time Information and Automatic Enrolment, have put an increased burden on companies in terms of time and cost.

Larking Gowen has a dedicated payroll service that will suit businesses of any size, and we can process payrolls at whatever frequency suits you.

Our team is experienced in using different payroll software, including Sage and Payroll professional. If you're already using Sage we can import data directly into our system or we'd be happy to carry out payroll services at your premises.

Our services cover issuing payslips, paying employees via BACS and making all necessary submissions to HMRC.

With the growth in online bookkeeping and accounting systems, as well as the upcoming requirements of Making Tax Digital, Larking Gowen offers full training and support for a range of software packages including Sage, QuickBooks Online and Xero.

With the remote access that online systems provide, our experienced team will make sure any problems you experience are solved as quickly as possible.

We are able to provide a full accounting software service, or equally we're happy to visit your premises for staff training.

With the arrival of Making Tax Digital there are a wider range of cloud-based applications available such as Receipt Bank and Futrli. These fully integrate with cloud accounting software including QuickBooks and Xero.

We can offer full support and training to help streamline your accounting and forecasting needs, and offer helpful information that will save you time and money.
