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.

Chancellor expands Job Support Scheme and grants to businesses facing new COVID-19 restrictions

October 12th, 2020

The Chancellor has announced that the Government will expand the new Job Support Scheme (JSS) to assist jobs and businesses required to close their doors as a result of tougher Coronavirus restrictions.

The announcement was made ahead of new plans to introduce a tier-based system for lockdowns across the country, which could force some businesses to close their doors once again.

The expanded Job Support Scheme

Under the expanded JSS, firms whose premises are legally required to shut for some period over winter as part of local or national restrictions will receive grants to pay the wages of staff who cannot work.

These grants will cover around two-thirds of each employees’ salary (67 per cent), up to a maximum of £2,100 a month.

Employers will not be required to contribute towards wages and will only be asked to pay National Insurance contributions (NICs) and auto-enrolment pension contributions.

The Government has estimated that around half of potential claims are not likely to incur employer NICs or pension contributions at all.

Businesses can only claim a grant where they are subject to a restriction that prevents them from opening and employees must not work for a minimum of seven consecutive days to be eligible.

The new scheme will open on 1 November alongside the other JSS measures announced last month in the Winter Economy Plan. It will be available for up to six months for businesses affected, with a review point in January.

All grant payments will be made in arrears through a dedicated HM Revenue & Customs service, which will be available from early December.

Lockdown grants

As well as expanding the JSS, the Government will also increase the value of cash grants offered to businesses in England forced into lockdown to support them with fixed costs.

Linked to the rateable value of business premises, the increased grants will see payments of up to £3,000 per month, payable every two weeks, instead of up to £1,500 every three weeks.

Under this reformed grant scheme:

  • Small businesses with a rateable value of or below £15,000 can now claim £1,300 per month;
  • medium-sized businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000 can claim £2,000 per month; and
  • larger businesses can claim £3,000.

The Government is also extending this scheme to include businesses that are forced to close on a national basis, such as nightclubs.

Here to help 

Much of these new measures will rely on the Government’s new tiered system for restrictions and may vary over time from one region to the next.

With this being the case, it is important to consider how this affects your business and seek advice at the earliest opportunity. To find out how we can assist you, please contact us.
