We thrive on boosting YOUR business, Here’s how we can help…

At CTMP, our levels of professionalism and expertise are unbeatable. From serving years in the business, we are proud to be able to offer an extensive list of specialist services.


If you feel that your business could benefit from any of these, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today to find out how we can help.


We are always happy to offer advice on the right accounting or payroll software for your business. As well as this, we can offer training in this area, so you are fully up to speed with your businesses accounts and know exactly how to handle them.


We are a fully computerised practice and have the relevant IT knowledge and expertise to guide you in the right direction. We can recommend software that will work best for you as we know that every business is different and so the same system will not work for each of our clients.


In addition to helping with payroll and accounts software, we can offer help with contact management software, advising on the necessary hardware, e-mail and internet set up and various office software packages.


If you need accurate accounts provided on time, we are the firm for you. All accounts are prepared to agreed timescales, deadlines and price meaning you are never left in the dark. We are fully reliable and trusted among our existing clients.

We carry out our work professionally and expertly and ensure the minimum amount of your financial information is made public.


We have a long history of providing audits to the education sector for schools, academies and colleges but can also help any business in this regard. In fact we can advise as to whether an audit is necessary at all.


We deliver hassle-free audits and we often recommend having an audit carried out regardless of whether you are required to by law. There are multiple reasons why this is the case.


If you are planning to sell the company, a history of accounts with clean audits will help the process move more quickly. The possibility of fraud can be reduced, and an audit can act as a deterrent to any potential fraudster.


If you are feeling overwhelmed by your paperwork, or simply don’t have the time to go through it, hand it over to us. We can take your stress away and handle everything for you.


Simply drop off your invoices, bank statements, etc, and we can do all the processing in a timely manner.


We can prepare:

  • Management Accounts
  • VAT Returns
  • Key Performance Indicators
  • End of Year Accounts
  • Estimated Tax Liabilities – as you go along so there’s no end of year surprises


Then, you pick up the records (neatly filed and organised) and all the information we’ve promised to deliver.


At CTMP, we can also offer you a book-keeping ‘health check.’

We can advise on the right book-keeping system for your business as well as whether the information being produced is accurate and reliable including making sure there are no VAT errors. We can also help with any training your book-keeping staff require.

Tax disputes, investigations, and planning

We can advise you when it comes to tax disputes. It’s an unfortunate fact of business life that from time-to-time there will be disagreement between the taxpayer and HMRC. Tax isn’t always black and white and where this is the case, we are happy to be in your corner and argue your case with authority.


With the ever-increasing chance of full tax enquiries and investigations, it’s worth considering protecting yourself from the accountancy costs of dealing with it, as the amount of work involved is often substantial.


We can offer cover for the following:


  • Self-assessment enquiries
  • VAT enquiries
  • PAYE and benefits enquiries
  • IR35 enquiries

VAT, Registrations, and Planning & Disputes

We can offer you a VAT ‘health check’. We review, sample and check your accounting records for errors while testing for the most common errors that the VAT inspectors look for. CTMP also:

  • Compare your VAT returns against your annual accounts
  • Check the VAT treatment of your sales
  • Consider whether you are making best use of relevant VAT schemes
  • Ensure you are correctly applying the rules of VAT schemes
  • Identify VAT planning opportunities.


Investigations from the VAT-man can be intense and stressful – all the more reason to have an accountant who is successful in negotiations with them.


We take best advantage of the relief available and the interpretation of the regulations. This is an extremely important feature of the service provided as it ensures peace of mind for all our clients.


We also deal with VAT registration and recommending the best schemes for your business
