Our Accountancy Services

Bevan Chartered Accountants employ experts in all areas of accounting and can deliver a wide range of work including simple tax returns, company and sole trader accounts and business plans.

Statutory Accounts

Bevan & Co will prepare and submit your company’s annual statutory financial statements. If you are a trading as a limited company, a sole trader, partnership or a limited liability partnership, we will prepare your accounts and calculate the tax due after carefully considering the best means to extract the profit from the business.   We will make sure that you understand when the filing deadlines are so that we can work together in a timely way thus avoiding last minute panics and worse still, late filing penalties.   We take pride in the fact that we will always aim to explain the accounts to our clients. The accounts, presented on a handful of pages by us, represent a year of your work and endeavours and we would not be doing our job properly if there were shortfalls in your understanding.

Taxation Advisory Planning

In keeping your tax liability to a minimum, taxation is an area where we always add value.

Our systems and controls are designed to ensure that you are notified of your tax liabilities in a timely manner. More than that, we will work with you to ensure that HMRC receive your self-assessment tax return, and/or your company’s corporation tax return well before they are due. There is no sense at all in delivering tax returns late and facing penalties as a result.
We will handle your personal tax affairs and those of your business. We manage our clients’ tax efficiently, clearly guiding and explaining any tax liabilities and their due dates.

Much like the other areas of our work with you, we seek to de-mystify self-assessment tax returns. Everything is explained in plain English.

Management Accounts

The management accounts of a company must be up to date, accurate and delivered in a timely fashion.   Many businesses can be adequately controlled and guided with quarterly management accounts once margins and break-even levels are understood. We will always aim to deliver the highest level of useful information at the lowest cost and intrusion into your business.


We can assist you with your quarterly VAT Returns and in so doing remove the weight from your shoulders. We will remind you when they are due and submit them electronically after discussing the liability with you.

Company Formations

There are many factors that can distract you from the exciting parts of your new business venture. We can make sure that the important areas are attended to leaving you to hit the ground running. Most importantly there are some early pitfalls that we will guide you away from.

Self Assessment

If you are required to prepare a personal tax return either because you are a director of a company, a sole trader or rent a property, or for any other reason, we will be happy to prepare and submit it for you in a timely basis each year. We will also remind you when the tax is due by and explain exactly how to pay it.


We will remove the stresses of your payroll and deal with the red tape whilst recommending to you your most tax effective rate of pay. There are increasingly more and more pitfalls and penalties to be avoided in the administering of a payroll. We will provide an annual fixed fee to manage the whole process for you and submit all necessary returns online. We outsource all our clients’ payrolls to a specialist payroll bureau who we have worked with over many years.

Company Secretarial

We offer a broad range of services in this area including company formation, VAT and PAYE registrations, a registered office service and the preparation and submission of the annual Confirmation Statement. There is an array of documents that require filing with HMRC and Companies House and financial penalties can arise for late returns. Our service is designed to keep all submissions accurate and on time.

Other Services

Tax Investigation Protection

Unfortunately, there may come a time in your life when HMRC decide to take a keen interest in your personal tax returns or those of your business. HMRC can issue aspect enquiries or even launch much wider tax investigations. We have got you covered. To offer real peace of mind to you we have an inexpensive fee protection scheme which means that in the case of an enquiry then all of our hours spent working to support you are paid for by the insurers not you. All clients are covered by this policy. Once again, our clients’ complete peace of mind is what we are always aiming for.

Cloud Accounting

We love the flexibility of cloud accounting and the time that can be saved. Our clients use many accounting packages including SAGE, FreeAgent, Quickbooks, Xero and we are proficient in each of them. We particularly like SAGE and can offer discounted annual licence fees and can access your data quickly if you are ever stuck.

Client Testimonials

We recently met Jannine over Zoom in September 2021, and we were delighted she decided to move from her Manchester based accountants to us; and within two months we had prepared her company’s accounts and her personal tax return.

I appointed Bevan & Co only recently and have been hugely impressed by their professionalism, expertise, and efficiency.
I really appreciate the amount of time and effort they take to explain their calculations, walk me through my company accounts step by step, and offer an opportunity for me to ask questions.
Highly recommend this team!

Jannine Green | J9 Clinical Study Solutions Ltd

CLK Furniture is a limited company based in Macclesfield and for many years they have manufactured high quality kitchens and bedroom wardrobes. We advised changes to their share structure soon after our appointment in 2012 and since then we have been preparing their annual accounts and the directors’ personal tax returns and providing additional advice as and when required.

I would like to say that having used Bevan Accountants for over 10 years we have found them very accessible, accommodating, and friendly. And they have always been conscious of expenditure and deadlines, dealing with both business and personal tax issues.

Chris Sherratt | CLK Furniture Limited

We met Geoff and Christine in July 2020. They had sold a property and needed a Capital Gains Tax calculation as well as the prompt submission of a UK Property Account return to HMRC .
Please accept our sincere thanks for your help and continued support in resolving this difficult and complicated process in what has been unprecedented circumstances regarding the global pandemic. Without your ongoing assistance and expertise we are confident in saying that we would not have achieved this very satisfactory outcome and both of us wish to convey our gratitude.

Geoff and Christine Faulkner

We met Andrew almost ten years ago, shortly after he had incorporated his Estate Agency business. We submitted his partnership’s final tax return and have been looking after his company ever since. He has recently been able to save costs by undertaking his own bookkeeping using SAGE with our guidance and support.
I have worked with Bevan & Co for a number of years, having gone through several accountants prior to this time. One thing I particularly value about our relationship is Peter’s ability to make the complicated seemed really easy, he has a knack of explaining things in layman terms, which is certainly important to me
