What does it involve?

We offer assurance services by carefully analysing the risks, coming up with conclusions about which ones need tackling. RHJ Accountants & Associates helps those entrusted with accountability make sense of their business and build rapport in order to maintain relations with key stakeholders and regulators.

Businesses will need to be able to take on any challenges that arise. To do this they will need to be more transparent with their reporting so that they are viewed as a clear and transparent source.

Simply put, an audit is an official inspection of an organisation’s accounts – as presented in the annual report.

Our audit service has been developed through the years, and provides your business with value due to our in-depth review. We will provide you with a dedicated team, who have significant financial and corporate knowledge, who will assess your needs whenever you require them.

Do I need an audit?

Certain companies do need an audit, and others don't. But to keep it simple, we recommend all companies to comply with regulations anyway and have an audit processed; to build confidence in your financial statements.

Let’s start now

There isn't an audit service that fits every business, so we will provide a unique service to suit the business requirements and needs. Each audit starts with an in-depth assessment, then we can build an audit plan to suit your business environment.

Company account filings

After no later than 9 months of the end of a fiscal year, all private companies are required to submit their annual accounting reports to Companies House. Anyone can submit these reports themselves; however, it is highly recommended to use an accountant who knows how the statement should be formatted.

HMRC takes care of personal taxes and does not deal with company accountancy services – that’s the difference.

When to request our services

You need to understand that it is important for all of your financial statements to be accurate and ready for submission, which means if you're looking for us to submit them for you to the Companies House then schedule a consultation now.

Let’s start now

To make sure you understand the entire process and know what documents we need to submit your accounts, then sign up for a free 20-minute consultation with our team so that they can get started right away.

Corporate tax returns

Along with submitting personal tax returns, we can also submit your company’s taxes.

So whether it be worrying about making mistakes or trying to best manage your businesses finances – we are here to help.

Deadline requirements

The answer to this question depends on what country you are filing a tax return for. Different countries each have different requirements and listing them all here would be difficult. To find out when the deadlines are, send our team an email today.

Let’s start now

No matter where you are located in the world, our expert team are here to help you submit a tax return. Call us today so we can answer all of your questions and ensure success from start to finish.

International tax planning

There are many reasons why one may need to pay tax; however, there are also products and means by which they can reduce the final amount of tax paid. Tax planning services include certain products, such as allowances or guidelines that make it easier to plan out your taxes while ensuring they remain fair and minimal.

When we design a portfolio that efficiently utilises what you’re allowed – or entitled to- all your money works harder for you in the long run, so you won’t be paying much at all in taxes.

The process

Tax is an important factor for consideration when designing your financial plan; the importance of good tax planning can't be overlooked. We take time to understand your circumstances and current financial position so that we can assess where you stand in regards to income, capital gains, and inheritance taxes.

Let’s start now

To ensure we can meet all of your needs and make sure this is the best fit for you, let's talk about it during a consultation so that we can go over all of the possibilities.

IRFS reporting

International Financial Reporting Standards are a set of guidelines for reporting an organisations finances that follow government laws and regulations. As qualified accountants, we know all about these laws and share them with you so you do not have to struggle understanding them on your own.

Every country has IRFS reporting, which means there are many opportunities for you with our services around the world.

Is this the same as a corporate tax return?

The major difference between a corporate tax return and IRFS reporting is that the former reports how much taxes are owed while the latter ensures compliance of international standards.

Let’s start now

To understand the international standards you need to abide by, it's best to consult with our team. Schedule a free consultation, and learn about how we can help you get started.

What countries do you help with?

Our large network of associates allow us to provide local or global coverage depending on where your company is based. Services are provided in the Mediterranean, UK, UAE and USA.

Let’s start now

Schedule a meeting with our team of experts today and we will work out the details for the payroll service that best suits your needs.

VAT returns

Alongside personal and corporate tax returns, if you have a VAT number you will need to file a VAT return. We can prepare this for you, either from your own bookkeeping records or we can take care of your record keeping and the VAT return, so there are no complications.

To get all things straightened out for you as soon as possible, we work closely with other colleagues in the company so nothing falls through the cracks – even when something might seem like it won’t be profitable at first glance.

Do I need to be registered for VAT?

If you're just starting out, we can help you determine if you need to register for VAT right away or not. And should that change, we'll take care of everything - all the paperwork included!

Let’s start now

No matter what country you need VAT for, our business support team will support you throughout the process. Contact us today so that we can help you to submit a VAT return.
