    The cost for limited company accounts really does depend on a number of variables. Generally, accountants charge for their services according to the companies complexity. The main cost factors include turnover or sales of the limited company, profitability of the business, number of directors/staff and lastly the accuracy of the bookkeeping, number of transactions and accounting software used. Using online accountants is fast becoming a popular choice as more small limited company directors decide to complete their own bookkeeping using one of the widely available cloud accountancy packages. Because of this, the price charged by accountants to prepare the statutory end of year annual limited company accounts has decreased and can be as little as £299 which is the amount our limited company accounts cost prices start from.

Your dividends must have been paid only from retained profits after corporation tax.
