Audit and Independent Examinations services in Calderdale


Many businesses are legally required to undergo an external, independent examination, such as an audit, and to report on all or part of their accounts.

This applies to companies with turnover, assets or workforce above certain thresholds, although many businesses below those thresholds also find the process valuable.

We want to make your audit a positive experience and go beyond simply reporting on your accounts – and because we get to know our clients, our audits are reinforced by our understanding of your business and the sector in which you operate.

We’ll use your audit to identify areas of your business that can be improved or made more efficient, including your financial controls and management systems. Our approach will give you the detailed data you need for effective decision-making and to shape your strategy for moving your business forward.

We have years of experience in audit work and are registered auditors, authorised and monitored by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales in our conduct of limited company audits.

Many other organisations also require audit work to be carried out by registered auditors, even if their accounts themselves do not require it, including solicitors who hold clients’ monies or operate controlled trusts.

If you are part of a voluntary organisation that provides services under a service contract to a local or other government body, you may be required to undergo an audit. We have wide-ranging experience in this type of audit and can often advise on ways to improve accounting systems.

Details about our audit registration can be viewed at www.auditregister.org.uk, under reference number: 1365538.

Government extends childcare voucher scheme for additional six months

April 3rd, 2018

Working parents across the UK will be delighted to hear that the Government has agreed to a six-month extension of the childcare voucher scheme.

It has been estimated that around 80 per cent of working parents may be better off using Childcare Vouchers rather than the new tax-free childcare scheme.

The voucher scheme allows employees to gain access to funding for childcare through their employer and, in return, employers can save up to £402 per year in National Insurance Contributions for every employee who signs up.

Following a number of debates in Parliament, the Secretary of State for Education, Damian Hinds, confirmed that the Government has agreed to a six-month extension of the Childcare Voucher scheme. Therefore the scheme will not be closing in April as previously reported.

The Government’s extension to the popular scheme was announced following criticism, which claimed that the tax-free childcare scheme is poorly understood and its rollout has been botched.

The childcare voucher scheme is available to all working parents in the UK and allows parents to take up to £55 each week from their salary before tax and National Insurance, or £243 a month, to spend on childcare no matter how many children they have, as long as the parent is a basic-rate taxpayer.

However, using the alternative tax-free childcare scheme parents have 20 per cent of their childcare costs met by the Government each year, up to a limit of £2,000 a year per child, or £4,000 if a child is disabled.

This scheme is open to self-employed people, who are excluded from the childcare voucher arrangements.

Subject to eligibility, both parents (if they are together) must be working 16 hours a week and paid at least the National Living Wage of £7.83 an hour, if over 25, or £125.28 a week to receive tax-free childcare.

For families within the basic-rate tax bracket who qualify for either scheme, anyone who spends less than £9,336 in total on childcare would likely be better off with vouchers. The same goes for those who pay the higher tax rate and spend less than £6,252 in total.

However, families with a larger number of children are more likely to benefit from tax-free childcare, as the system works on a per-child basis rather than per parent.

Anyone who is claiming tax credits or universal credit or if either parent earns more than £100,000 will not be eligible for tax-free childcare.

The two schemes cannot be used in conjunction with one another, but either can be used alongside the 15 or 30 hours of free childcare offered to children aged three and four.
