Ecommerce and retail

Shops and sellers

Whether you’re on the high street or retail park, trading through Amazon or similar platforms, or have your own online store, we can help you run a more profitable business. Our accountants are retail specialists with years of experience dealing with EPOS systems, staff payroll, VAT and tax on imports and exports.

Help for retailers

From important financial admin jobs such as payroll and bookkeeping through to strategic business advice, we do a bit of everything for our retail clients. The most important thing is that we get to know them and tailor a service around what they really need.

First, we take routine work off their plate, expertly managing their books and accounts using cloud software. We look after their tax returns, whether those are sole trader personal income tax returns or limited company corporation tax returns.

We advise on all aspects of VAT, from knowing when to register to deciding on the right retail VAT scheme for your business. We can also help you navigate VAT rules for import and export to the EU, post-Brexit.

Shops often employ staff as a mix of permanent and casual employees, on all kinds of different salaries and terms. We can look after your payroll and run your PAYE scheme, making sure everyone gets paid on time, with all the right deductions.

When it comes to systems and technology, we can help you integrate your EPOS system with Xero, Sage or whichever accounting system you use.

If you trade online through Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Shopify or any other online platform, we’ll make sure you always have a clear handle on your sales, cash position and tax liability.

In the long-term, we’ll advise on growth – how can you sell more, through more outlets, more efficiently? Business planning is the key, along with the right approach to funding and finance.
