Accountants for business

At Baker Chapman & Bussey we focus on delivering results for our clients through first class tax advice and business management. We look after a variety of business clients from a wide range of sectors, such as IT, construction, care homes, retail and hospitality, as well as charities. We also have particular experience in helping SMEs reach their potential.

We are a firm of chartered accountants in Colchester and we pride ourselves on being friendly and practical. We take time to find out what’s right for you and how we can help you improve your performance and profitability. Clients talk to us about:

  • business accounting and taxation
  • payroll
  • starting a business
  • growing a business
  • retirement and business succession
  • audit
  • VAT

In addition the HMRC initiative ‘Making Tax Digital’ (MTD) and the impending introduction of Making Tax Digital for VAT in April 2019 means many UK businesses must change how they prepare and file VAT returns.

Our knowledge of various popular software packages that can handle the Making Tax Digital requirments, such as Quickbooks, Sage,Kashflow and Xero mean we have the experience knowledge to help you prepare for this new requirement in good time.

For those most immediately affected:

  • HMRC’s online VAT portal will close from April.
  • VAT returns must instead be submitted to HMRC through MTD software. 
  • Businesses must digitally record their VAT transactions and returns using MTD software.
