Having a Pre Year End Strategic Review and meeting with us before reaching your year-end is one of the most effective ways of ensuring you remain in control of your business. It will help you know where you stand with tax, profits, drawings and cash flow whilst you can still do something to change the situation in your favour.

Pre year-end strategic reviews are becoming increasingly popular and annual meetings after year-ends are becoming a thing of the past. And rightly so: Tax and business planning is vital to undertake prior to your year-end, as many planning opportunities can be missed if not discussed within the financial year. If your tax planning consists of discussing your year-end accounts with your accountant once they have been prepared then you are not planning, you are reacting!

We typically meet with our clients 4-6 weeks before your financial year-end using interim figures for the current year-to-date to project the likely profits, Corporation tax, personal tax bills etc.

Please watch our short video below which explains why a having a Pre Year End Strategic Review will help your business.
