Business support services for small or medium-sized business

Running a small or medium-sized business, you may be looking for ways to fill gaps in skills or to reduce your administrative burden and save costs. Our team at Beech Business support services can step in to help.

Our dedicated teams help to fill any skills gap, allowing you to get on with the important job of running your own business. Whether it’s the management of holiday or sickness cover, the replacement of staff, IT upgrades or compliance with changing legislation, you have peace of mind.

Payroll

Our specialist payroll services team not only provides a bespoke, accurate and secure processing service, but can also offer advice on liability and compliance with Real Time Information and relevant legislation. We are a Bacs approved bureau and can supply a secure, online payslip service. We are also able to manage the set-up and ongoing running of an auto-enrolment pension.

Bookkeeping

Whether working on-site or remotely, our highly trained book-keepers will help you manage your financial records via Sage, Xero, Quickbooks (see Cloud Accounting) or other packages. We’ll also help you to complete your VAT returns.

Management accounts

We can help your prepare timely and accurate management accounts and budget variance analysis to help you make more effective business decisions. You can also make use of our expertise in the preparation of business plans and forecasting to help with funding bids and to compare actual performance to expectations.

Software training

We offer one-to-one or team training on standard packages such as Xero, Quickbooks and Sage.

Financial Controller services

Perhaps your business isn’t large enough to justify a full-time financial controller’s role? If so, we can offer regular support – producing and interpreting management information, reporting on Key Performance Indicators and preparing business plans, as well as profit and cashflow forecasting.

We will interpret your data and challenge you on your performance in relation to budget. It’s often useful to have an impartial perspective which helps to highlight rising costs, for instance, or particularly successful sales lines.
