Fisherton Consulting

Your virtual Finance Office


Fisherton Consulting offers a range of financial management services to support your business. We would like to meet you to discuss which of our services best suits your needs:  

Systems & Procedure Reviews

Your Accounting System underpins the way you process your transactions and the way you manage your business. Every business is different and each business owner will require different inputs and outputs.

Fisherton Consulting can implement a number of systems, including those that use cloud technology. We tailor both the system and chart of accounts (the coding structure) to suit your business.

Why Use Fisherton Consulting?

Management Accounts

Management Accounts are a monthly or quarterly snapshot of business activity for the period.

Most small businesses will receive a Profit & Loss statement and a Balance Sheet from their accountants. This information can be so out of date that it is no longer a useful tool for business decision-making.

Fisherton Consulting prepares the management accounts from your most recent financial records; this information is the key to good financial decision-making within your organisation. We adapt the format and content of these accounts to your specific needs.

Benefits of Management Accounts:

Annual Accounts

Annual accounts are a necessary element of running a business.   Accounts consisting of a Profit & Loss statement and Balance Sheet will give a business owner a vital overview of the position and performance of the business over the previous 12 months.

The information in the accounts can then be used by those who require such information for decision-making and record-keeping purposes, such as banks offering finance, suppliers offering credit and potential customers looking to contract with the business.

Late filing of annual accounts to Companies House will result in automatic financial penalties.  Fisherton Consulting will prepare annual accounts for small companies and submit them in compliance with the business's statutory duty.

Sole Traders and Partnerships need annual accounts in order to provide information for their tax returns.


Tax Returns
