Who we help
SMEs and CIS contractors, and putting them in control of their accounts.
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:
SMEs with turnovers
up to £2.5m

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?
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.
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.
