Plummer Parsons has been working with architects practices for many years.  As professional practices they do encounter many problems which we have had experience in dealing with.

This includes partnership and shareholder changes, capital raising for expansion of practices and, unfortunately, in times of recession dealing with contraction and possibly down-sizing.

There are a number of practices which are still working as a partnership and, in many cases, tax and national insurance savings could be made to transfer these to limited companies.  If freehold properties are owned, these can still be retained outside the limited company in order to benefit from Entrepreneur’s Relief.

Services we can provide include:

  • Preparation of VAT returns and negotiations with HMRC on the cost apportionment calculations
  • Business planning
  • Preparation or review of management accounts
  • Taxation mitigation
  • Incorporating your practice and reviewing ownership structure
  • Bookkeeping advice together with detailed knowledge of accounting packages
  • Payroll Bureau service and support
  • Succession and Inheritance Tax planning
  • Raising finance
  • Financial services and pension planning
  • Tax Return completion and specialist tax advice
  • Company secretarial services

Our charges are totally transparent and can be planned in advance and we offer a menu of fixed charges.
