Leisure industry

Our specialist division in the leisure industry was established almost fifty years ago. We deal with businesses of all types and sizes including:

  • Public Houses
  • Restaurants and takeaways
  • Wine bars and cafe bars
  • Hotels and guest houses
  • Holiday houses and apartments
  • Off-licences
  • Night clubs and social clubs
  • Golf, tennis and other sports clubs

Our dedicated specialist division provides the complete range of services required by the licensed trade - access to funding, business plan preparation, stocktaking, VAT, bookkeeping, monthly / quarterly reports, annual accounts, taxation, payroll, licensing, financial services and business consultancy.

Weak records can have very serious consequences. We have our own cash book on disk or for those who prefer a manual system we have our own hard copy cash book, provided free of charge to clients. We can also recommend and provide a computerised system in suitable circumstances.

We are able to help clients whenever there are problems. Our experience is invaluable to help resolve:

  • Tax investigations
  • PAYE / NIC investigations
  • VAT investigations
  • Rent reviews
  • Lease assignments and renewals

With routine and random inspections and enquiries into business accounts, returns, payroll compliance, corporate tax, VAT etc nobody is safe. Besides providing full support and advice we have a group insurance scheme with Abbey Tax Protection, whereby for an exceptionally low annual premium our fees are covered in nearly all instances should your business be targeted for investigation.
