Palmers’ Accounting Essentials provide everything you need to keep your numbers in check and your business compliant. Perfect for small businesses, sole traders and start ups. 

Total compliance

with HMRC and Companies House

Straightforward advice

without the jargon

Maximise your earnings

with proactive tax planning

Stay compliant, maximise profits and pay less tax

Affordable Accounting Essentials for UK businesses, including Year End Accounts, payroll, VAT and personal tax.

When you’re busy running a business, finding the headspace to complete regular HMRC returns is a headache you just don’t need. With Accounting Essentials, we take it all off your desk, so you can worry less, and earn more.

We don’t just look backwards when it comes to preparing your accounts. We’ll get some time in the diary and conduct a pre-Year End tax review so we can proactively advise you on issues like profit extraction and any investment decisions.

When the time comes, we’ll prepare and submit your Year End Accounts and Corporation Tax Return, alongside any Self Assessment tax, VAT and payroll returns, ensuring total compliance, and maximising profits wherever we can.

Then we’ll explain in advance exactly what you owe, and when. No jargon, no surprises. Just peace of mind that it’s all in safe hands.

All the Accounting Essentials you need, at prices small businesses can afford

Year end accounts

As a limited company, submitting your Year End Accounts is mandatory. As well as ensuring full compliance with statutory regulations, we’ll prepare your accounts to maximise your earnings and minimise your tax bill. 

Payroll services

Our all-inclusive payroll services help you navigate the complexity of payroll compliance, including the latest auto enrolment obligations. We’ll even post your monthly payroll data to your books, providing a more accurate picture of your business’s financial health. 

Personal tax

Are you paying more tax than you should? We’ll ensure your Self Assessment tax return is submitted accurately, covering self-employed earnings, bank interest, pensions, dividends and capital gains — so you only pay what you owe, and not a penny more. 


If your business turns over £85k or more, you are legally required to file VAT returns. We’ll advise on the right time to become VAT registered, and ensure your returns are filed correctly to avoid hefty penalties.
