Shipton Bookkeeping

Our Services


All businesses have a legal obligation to keep accurate records of their trading activity. This essential process requires keeping an exact record of every trading transaction relative to money spent and received by the business - all invoices, cheques, cash and credit notes must be recorded accurately.
We can maintain this system for you and provide a summary of financial performance of the business every month.

VAT Returns

We can advise you when you need to register for VAT and help complete the registration process. We will produce your quarterly or monthly VAT return, file it electronically with HMRC and advise you of the liability payable and when to pay it to avoid penalties. Our VAT preparation includes a full review and reconciliation of the figures on the return to ensure the figures disclosed are accurate and complete.

Tax Returns

For submission to HMRC, we can complete and submit your Self Assessment ensuring an accurate and worry free submission. Professionally completed returns can reduce potential liabilities and avoid fines and penalties.


We offer a complete payroll service on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis, we produce payslips, P45's, P60's and year end reporting.  We operate full compliance with HMRC RTI (Real Time Information).  You will be advised how much to pay HMRC and when. We can also offer Auto-Enrolment solutions to your payroll as well as advice on changing legislation such as holiday entitlement and Nation Minimum Wage.

CIS (Construction Industry Scheme)

We will verify each of your subcontractors with HMRC to determine the level of tax to ​deduct from their invoices. We will provide​ your subcontractors with proof of those deductions by way of a pay statement and ​then submit monthly returns to HMRC. We complete all of this on your behalf avoiding late filing penalties and ensuring you pay and reclaim CIS tax correctly. 


Issuing timely professional invoices contributes towards a healthy cash flow, minimises the potential for bad debts, complies with record keeping regulations and promotes profitability. We generate and despatch professional invoices on behalf of clients which state terms of trade and improves the efficiency of the bookkeeping function.

Credit Control

Credit Control is a vital part of running any business - and especially a new business with limited cash resources; a healthy cash flow is the foundation to any successful business. Through accurate bookkeeping and constant analysis of suppliers and customers we can assist with credit control issues and chase payments on your behalf. We may be able to offer you other services upon request, for more details please contact us.


If you have in-house accounting personnel or complete your own bookkeeping we can visit your office to offer support and training.  This can add value to your existing function, improve your internal reporting and reduce your end of year accountancy costs.
