    Limited Company Accounts Cost in the UK

    Limited company accounts cost in the UK can vary significantly depending on a variety of factors. These include the size and complexity of the business, the level of detail required in the accounts, and the amount of time and effort required to prepare and file the accounts.

    One of the main costs associated with limited company accounts is the fee for professional accounting services. This may include the cost of preparing and reviewing the financial statements, calculations for assessment tax return, filing the corporation tax return, as well as the cost of any additional services, such as tax planning and advice. The cost of professional accounting services can vary widely, but it is typically based on an hourly rate or a fixed fee.

    In addition to the cost of professional accounting services, there may be other costs associated with preparing and filing limited company accounts. These may include the cost of on-line accounting software to assist with quarterly vat returns if you are vat registered or other tools used to organise and analyse financial data, as well as the cost of any required licenses or permits.

    There may also be costs associated with submitting the accounts to Companies House, the government agency responsible for registering and storing company information in the UK. These costs can vary depending on the method of submission, with on-line submissions typically being less expensive than paper submissions.

    Overall, the cost of limited company accounts in the UK can range from a few hundred pounds for small businesses with straightforward financial statements to several thousand pounds for larger businesses with more complex accounts. It is important to carefully consider the costs and benefits of preparing and filing limited company accounts to ensure that they are appropriate for your business.

    2. Is it worth hiring an accountant?

    A good accountant will normally save you more in tax than you will incur on their fees. Tax law is complicated and knowing what you can and cannot claim for against your income is not always obvious. Consequently, the cost for limited company accounts charged by accountants should be good value and will ensure that all allowances and exemptions have been properly claimed for.

    4. Are all accountants qualified?

    Unfortunately the use of the term 'accountant' is not protected in UK law. You should ensure you use a CCAB qualified accountant. CCAB has five members - ICAEW, ACCA, CIPFA, ICAS and Chartered Accountants Ireland. 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 an online firm 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.

    5. Should I see accountants reviews before making a choice?

    Yes we recommend seeing what other people have to say about your prospective accountants before hiring them. A good accountant will charge you a reasonable amount and ensure that all tax returns are made on time. We will ensure that you pay the correct amount of tax and vat and do not take too much out of the company by way of illegal dividends. This is a mistake many company directors make. Your dividends must have been paid only from retained profits after corporation tax.
