Statutory Accounts Preparation

Balance Sheet

All UK Private Limited and Public Limited companies are required by law to file statutory accounts with both Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs.  There are often times within the business’s existence that it will also be required to produce figures for banks and other financial institutions.

At Paul Summers & Co Accountants Stockport, we offer the full range of compliance services which includes the preparation of accounts for internal and external reporting purposes. However, we recognise that each business is individual in its needs and has differing requirements as a result.  As well as producing statutory reports we also offer advice and provide recommendations from our findings in order to help develop the future performance of your business.

Management Accounts

The preparation of timely management accounts on a regular basis can be advantageous in several ways:

  • They provide you with an up to date view of the business
  • They facilitate the preparation of forecasts and budgets
  • They allow you to plan for future tax liabilities
  • They highlight areas of over/under spending

Corporate Tax Returns

Minimising your Corporation Tax liabilities allows the funds to be reinvested into the business or provides higher returns to the shareholders.

Paul Summers & Co, Accountants Stockport, are at the forefront of dealing with changing legislation in order to be in a position to provide compliance functions together with a full tax planning service.

Integrated Tax Planning


Due to the complexity of the tax regime and the ever increasing responsibilities of management, anyone who is subjected to taxation needs professional help and support.

As Certified Chartered Accountants, our aim is to minimise your tax exposure by considering the requirements of the business, its shareholders and the officers of the company as individuals.

By allowing you to take full advantage of the tax saving opportunities you will benefit by having more income at your disposal.

Effective Remuneration Planning

Following an assessment of your business, by a member of our team of accountants, we are able to advise you on a suitable remuneration strategy which considers tax implications whilst being commercially viable for your business.

Additionally, we are able to help with technical and administrative queries in implementing the chosen structure.

Succession Planning


Succession planning involves identifying potential issues and implementing strategies to allow the smooth transition from one business owner to another.

Many businesses have no succession plan in place which can result in turmoil in the event of a crisis, divorce or death.

Whether the aim is to pass the business onto a family member or to sell the business to a third party, we can help you to address the issues which may arise and develop a plan which will allow the successful continuation and management of the business in the future.

Corporate Transactions and Company Re-Organisation

At some point, most businesses will need to deal with a re-structure.

Many businesses have faced financial difficulty or instability due to the recent economic crisis and have found that a re-organisation has been vital to allow the business to continue and remain competitive.

The early detection of problems and the creation of a proactive plan can ensure that the business continues to operate successfully.

Paul Summers & Co, Stockport, are able to provide help and advice concerning acquisitions, mergers, expansions and dissolutions.

Business Sales & Acquisitions


Paul Summers & Co can help to develop and refine suitable acquisition and disposal strategies which can result in the successful completion of a transaction.

This service may include preparing business plans, liaising with other financial institutions, dealing with potential vendors and driving the transaction to completion.

Exit Planning

During the development of a business, there may come a time when a shareholder may wish to crystallise the value that they have created.

The implementation of effective exit planning is vital to maximise the shareholders financial goals without disrupting the life cycle of the business.

We are able to support you through the process and ensure that all issues are considered.
