Our Services

Bergen Associates - Not Just An Accountant But A Business Advisory Agency!


Accountancy

It is law and a director’s or proprietor’s responsibility to keep accurate books of account. It can also make things much easier and cheaper should there be an inquiry by HM Revenue and Customs. At the end of its financial year, a limited company must prepare full (‘statutory’) annual accounts.

Bergen can ensure that your Corporate Accounts are prepared and filed on time. Contact Bergen to see how we can help you manage your business by providing a business support service to help you manage and control you business efficiently.


Bookkeeping

Whether yours is a start-up, early stage or established business, your book keeping is the foundation for good financial management and control - everything starts here.

We provide all the services you need to have your own micro finance department without the cost of staff commitment. You can choose one or all services including bookkeeping, VAT returns, management accounts, payroll and full credit control management. One thing is certain, if your bookkeeping is done well and done on time then you'll have more freedom to concentrate on making money.


Payroll Service

We handle the entire payroll process off site, eliminating PC problems, data protection or staff seeing information they shouldn’t. Our flexible, tailored, complete business payroll packages do exactly what you need them to.

Our commitment to look after everything for you on an ongoing basis means there are no high initial software purchase or regular software upgrade costs involved. All functionality is covered in your monthly costs, which also makes it easier to plan your budgets. No expensive in-house IT expertise is required as nothing needs to be installed on your systems.


Consultation and Advice

Comprehensive advice and support readily available to help you with whatever issues you may have.

We have the expertise to give you advice on a wide range of business matters. From taxation to employment law and credit management to business re-structure.


Investigations and Support

The likelihood of a tax investigation or enquiry has never been higher. Most tax enquiries are generated by computer “risk profiling” and many are selected completely at random. The questions asked by HMRC are usually very detailed and time-consuming to answer. The costs of defending you could easily run into thousands of pounds, even if little or no extra tax is paid at the end of the enquiry. These costs are not covered by the normal annual fees paid to your accountant.

As a client of Bergen Accountants you can be covered for the work and costs of defending you in the event of a tax enquiry by HMRC. Some accountants charge £100-£200 per year for this cover. With Bergen it costs nothing.


Many Years of Experience

Over the years we have built up a considerable experience across the full business spectrum - we currently assist Business Start-ups; Sole Traders; Partnerships; Limited Companies; and Contractors.

We are more than just accountants. We can provide practical support and advice to your business in all areas.
