Services to ensure business compliance

When you are running a business, great advice is of paramount importance. As members of the Business Advice Service of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales – which ensures you receive quality advice from qualified experts – PA Hull & Co. offers free, no-obligation advice to small and medium-sized enterprises.

We can offer advice on all sorts of issues, including how to ensure you meet tax and regulatory requirements; and managing debt and overdue taxes.

We can also tell you more about our range of services tailored to help you manage your business:


Although it makes good business sense to produce monthly or quarterly management accounts [link to ‘Management accounts’ in ‘Services to help you manage your business’], it is important to ensure that you submit the required annual accounts to HMRC – and (for limited companies) Companies House – on time in order to avoid penalties and potential investigations.


We work with clients to take the right action at the right time, planning ahead so that your tax bill – whether corporate or personal – does not come as an unpleasant surprise. With detailed information and regular dialogue on all elements of your income (e.g. from business, rental properties, other investments and capital gains), we can help ensure that your tax liability is as low as legitimately possible.

CIS refunds

We can help contractors and subcontractors in the construction industry to claim from HMRC any tax refunds they are due.

Payroll services

If your payroll is large or small, weekly or monthly, simple or complex, our payroll service removes the aggravation, saves your time and is cheaper than you think. We include preparation of payslips and all necessary returns.

Bookkeeping and VAT returns

Our bookkeeping team offers a trustworthy and thoroughly dependable service that leaves you free to run your business. We can advise you when it is best to register for VAT, and what schemes to consider. If you are already VAT-registered, we will guide you through the complexities of VAT returns, and can even prepare these for you.

Company secretarial services

Legislation changes constantly, and varies by business type. With years of specialised experience and a team dedicated to keeping up to date with the law, we are perfectly placed to advise your company and keep you compliant.
