We run your payroll, so you don't have to.
If you’ve reached the point where you can no longer manage your payroll in-house, it’s definitely worth outsourcing and letting us relieve you of the hassle. We offer a confidential payroll service, allowing you to focus your time and attention on the primary elements of your business. You don’t have to worry about the increasingly complicated legislations and penalties – all of our payroll processing is done electronically using software that complies with HMRC regulations.
We’ll send you monthly reports to outline your payroll information, as well as producing end of year P60 forms for all of your employees. Confused by Workplace Pension legislations? Don’t worry, this is also a key part of our payroll processing service. By letting us manage your payroll and do what we do best, you’re saving time so you can focus on what you do best, whilst increasing your efficiency and profitability.
Saving you time, so you can concentrate on your business.
Bookkeeping can be a tough task to keep on top of when you’re trying to run a business. You’ll need to keep details of your business transactions, but aside from that, you can hand over the information to our team and we’ll take it from there. When you need a hand to keep your accounts up to date, our expert team are just what you need. At Cartwright & Co, we can simply offer advice regarding your bookkeeping or the implications of becoming VAT registered, review your bookkeeping records, or even prepare and submit your VAT returns.
Bookkeeping can be time-consuming, but failing to keep records up-to-date could result in a HMRC fine of up to £3,000 and the potential for additional tax bills if your tax returns are also incorrect. Save yourself the worry and the money; we have years of bookkeeping experience to ensure a set of accurate, correct data at the end of your financial year, giving you peace of mind.
We take the worry out of your accounts preparation.
When you’re focusing on running and growing your business, you don’t necessarily have the time to think about what you need to send, to whom, and when. Take comfort in knowing that all of your year-end accounts and returns will be handled accurately. Not only will we prepare and send your accounts promptly and precisely, but we’ll also explain them to you in plain English; no technical jargon that’ll confuse rather than clarify! It’s important to us that you understand your accounts, which is why we’ll break them down for you and make sure that we outline how stable and profitable your business is, as well as any suggested improvements for the forthcoming year if you require them.
Help and advice when you need it at the beginning.

Here at Cartwright & Co, our team can help you to make informed decisions and determine some of the key starting points for your new venture. It’s essential that you decide on the structure of your business from the very start, as there are a lot of legal responsibilities that can vary depending on your structure.

Making pensions easy for you and your employees.
New legislations mean that UK employers are required to automatically enrol certain employees into a workplace pension scheme, and contribute towards it. It’s not worth being fined by the Pensions Regulator for failing to do so and getting caught out.
Working with Cartwright & Co ensures that it’s never been easier to set up a pension for your employees. We work with you to provide a safe pension scheme that ensures your compliance with the law as an employer, keeping on top of all of the legal contribution rates and any re-enrolments that may be necessary. As with many other employment legislations, there can be penalties for failing to comply. Our team can help to make sure that you don’t even have to think twice about these penalties, instead of focusing your time and energy on the growth and success of your business.
