How can Cain & Beer
help you?

Bookkeeping and account management

By accurately recording your business’s ledger, up-to-date and efficient bookkeeping can transform the day-to-day running of your company. We can work remotely or can undertake your bookkeeping on site – this is another benefit of being local.

VAT returns

One of the most complex parts of financial management, missing or incorrectly filed VAT returns can result in penalties. A pressure point for many companies, let Cain & Beer take the stress out of formalising and submitting your VAT return.

Invoicing, reconciliation and credit control

For businesses cashflow management is key, invoicing promptly and being paid on time is invaluable as is ensuring that your company’s financial data is accurate – enabling you to make business decisions based on facts, not belief.

Payroll and auto enrolment

If your business has employees, one or many, Cain & Beer can manage your payroll including issuing pay slips and employers National Insurance submissions to HMRC. Within our service we can arrange the set up of pension schemes for your staff.

Supporting your business

In addition to taking on your company’s financial management or bookkeeping services, Cain & Beer also offers a range of services to help you take care of your own accounts. Our bookkeeping workshops are intimate and (we like to think) fun! You will leave the workshop with a clearer understanding of the records you are legally required to keep, where you can claim business expenses and how to maintain straightforward bookkeeping spreadsheets. You will also be given a range of templates to get started with.

Cain & Beer can also set you up online accounting software such as Xero or Quickbooks and offer you tutorials in how to use these to benefit your business.

Case study: Warbird Experiences Limited, based at Biggin Hill Airport

Based at the famous Biggin Hill Airport in Kent, Warbird Experiences Limited’s main source of income is selling Spitfire flights and Hangar tours.

Problem

There was a backlog of work which was building up and Warbird’s accounts filing date was fast approaching. They did not want to be fined.

The bookkeeping had previously been completed using a desktop accounting software solution that was out of date. And although the records had been previously completed to a high standard there was a compelling need for a change.

 

Solution

After attending a meeting with the Directors, Cain & Beer were tasked with restoring order and providing an ongoing solution to ensure the financial accounts were kept up to date.

The first job was to get the bookkeeping up to date on the software that they were using, to enable the annual accounts to be filed on time and avoid receiving a fine. It was a mammoth task but thankfully stage one was accomplished with time to spare.

Once the bookkeeping was brought up to date it was then a case of sourcing an online accounting software that would cope with an organisation of this size. The software chosen was Xero, and Cain & Beer was quickly and seamlessly able to migrate the data from the desktop software into Xero.

Currently all of Warbird’s bookkeeping is completely automated using Xero and AutoEntry and Cain & Beer attends their offices twice a week to keep on top of the work, as well working remotely.
