Accounting

Never miss a deadline

At Cone, we're here to make sure that everything is taken care of without all the hassle. That's why we make sure that all your deadlines are met, with good time and plenty of notice so you're always one step ahead. It sounds like this should go without saying, but you'd be surprised!

Perfect for small business

Our services are tailored towards small businesses and entrepreneurs that are trying to find that blend between running their business but also living their ideal life. We get it. When you join us, you are introduced to your new accounting team and we're here whenever you need us.

Company and Personal Tax

If you're a company director then you'll need both of these. If you're a sole trader then just the personal tax for you. Either way, we take care of it making sure you're as tax efficient as possible and ensuring that you are compliant with HMRC. Tax is tricky, so sit back, relax and leave it to us.

Add your extras

Our accounting packages are priced to meet most businesses but you might feel you need a little more, or there's something else we could do to help. We have a wide range of additional services and support and we go through this with you so you have a package tailored to your business.


Bookkeeping

year end financial package

We put together a year end package for your accountant or CPA so everything is ready to go when it comes to tax time. Of course, if you're based in the UK then we can look after your accounts too and you get a discount as well for having both plans. Take a look at our accounting packages.

monthly financial statements

At the end of each month you'll receive an income statement and a balance sheet with your transactions neatly categorised and clear for you to see exactly how your business is performing. It has never been this easy for you and your business.
 

training included

We want you to feel comfortable around the bookkeeping software Xero. So we'll run you through our Xero training showing you the areas important to you, from cash flow reports to raising sales invoices. It's all at your fingertips. 

Access to your data

Your bookkeeping is yours, so while we compile and organise it for you so you can clearly see the status of your business, the data is always owned by you. Should you decide to move on, we can transfer the software subscription to you or provide you with exports so you have all your information. We'd be sad to see you go but please don't fret about your data.


Software

CAtegorisation

We'll go through your transactions each month and categorise them into types so you can see your areas of spending. Sometimes you might have costs that could go to multiple places or unique to your business, so we'll check with you on where you would like these to go.

Xero & Receipt Bank

These are our super tools. Xero links with your bank account and acts as your business hub. You can raise invoices, track your bills and run your business on the go. Receipt Bank is how you submit your receipts and expenses - take a photo and we do the rest. Easy.

 

Paperless

Where possible, everything will be paperless from the information you provide us to the documents and data we send to you. It enables us to operate around the world while being more eco-friendly and efficient. Shoeboxes and paper bags of receipts are in the past. Technology is here so why not use it?

 

User-Friendly

We've tried to keep everything as straight forward for you. You submit your data to us each month as you go about your day-to-day business. We pick everything up from there. Reports are clearly presented and receipt submission is a breeze. Xero hooks up with many applications too that you might be using so if anything can be integrated then we'll help you to get these up and running. Saving you time is the aim of the game.
