Who we help

At Bradleys, we’re experts in taking away the headaches of Startups,
SMEs and CIS contractors, and putting them in control of their accounts.


Let us help you work your way forward.

Starting a new business is both exciting and, frequently, terrifying — there are so many things to do, responsibilities to take on, and important business functions to discover, like the accounts. Many startups focus on business development and growth but forget to ensure the critical financial record-keeping is in place. That can be the difference between success and failure.

Working with an accountant from the outset can ensure you are set up for success. They can help with cloud accounting systems to make day-to-day record-keeping straightforward, liaise with HMRC, run payroll when you start employing people and advise how to get investment. They will also keep you updated as to how your business is performing.

We can help with many functions, including:

Business structure

Let us help you decide what type of business is best for you — whether sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership or limited company. Understand business nuances better.

Accountancy and tax

We will promptly meet all your accountancy, tax, financial management and statutory obligations accurately and at a reasonable rate. We genuinely want to see your startup thrive.

Raising finances

We can help you secure the right level of funding, provide advice on various government initiatives, tax breaks and grants available. When there’s financial support available, why not take it?

Cloud accounting

We’ve harnessed the capability of cloud-based software to speed up accounting and can also help you get a real-time picture of how your business is performing. What do you think?

Startup essentials

We will chalk out the most efficient tax structure in addition to helping you with company setup, opening a bank account, filing self-assessment taxes, and registering with HMRC for PAYE and VAT.

Cash flow forecasting

Managing cash flow and keeping a close eye on finances is absolutely vital to your success. Our dedicated accounts will help you monitor your cash flow and take control of it right from the start.

Receive just the right level of support.

If you own a small-to-medium-sized enterprise, you’ll agree you have had to overcome many hurdles to get where you are. But taking those next steps can be even harder than starting out — which direction should you take, where is market growth, should you invest in development or divest of loss-making parts of your business?

If your accountant is on the ball, then you should see a clear path taking you forward. Thankfully, when you work with us, we not only ensure all your bookkeeping is up to date and your tax returns are submitted on time, but we can help with business planning, investment, and helping you to take those next business decisions.

We can help with many functions, including:​

Accounting basics

Let us help you decide what type of business is best for you — whether sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership or limited company. Understand business nuances better.

Prompt tax filing

Let us deal with all your receipts, bills, invoices, and VAT returns. We’ll prepare your year-end accounts and calculate how much tax and National Insurance you owe HMRC.

Ongoing reporting

We will also schedule reviews to help you identify process challenges and growth opportunities and deploy systems to monitor your business consistently.

Financial overview

Our team will advise on minimising business tax by making full and proper use of your allowable expenses. Yes, we would also handle enquiries from HMRC on your behalf if the need arises.

CIS contractors

Enjoy the freedom to get on with your business.

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) lays down special tax rules for subcontractors who work in the construction industry regarding how contractors handle payments, which often puts them in a tough spot if they aren’t aware of these specific obligations. With Bradleys, you never have to worry about it. We keep CIS contractors and sub-contractors happy with our smooth accounting and tax support and let your business scale comfortably.

We can help with

CIS registration and set up for contractors

From helping you complete your CIS registration and advising on whether your subcontractors fall into the subcontractor employee status to keeping your records and payroll in good order — Bradleys will gladly help you sort everything out. Our CIS accounting service has been designed specifically to streamline the whole process for you.

Administrative support and general advice

The number of deductions and payments you make will depend on how your subcontractors are set up. But our CIS accounting experts are here to calculate what you owe and walk you through the entire process. We'll also assist in obtaining a UTR number from HMRC, buying relevant insurances, and getting you started on a cloud system to manage expenses.

CIS verification

Before you can pay your subcontractors, they need to be verified with HMRC. We can do this for you and advise what rate of deduction to use.

Monthly CIS returns

We’ll file your monthly CIS returns and notify you of the tax payable to HMRC. You can be fined up to £3000 if this is done incorrectly. We can ensure everything is in order.
