Annual reviews during the Covid-19 pandemic

Annual reviews of your accounts are always important, but it’s particularly advisable to have these carried out during the pandemic so you can see how much Covid-19 has affected your business. A reputable and dependable accountancy firm can support you with not only general book-keeping and other duties but can also conduct an annual review of your business to help you prepare your final accounts.

Assess your pandemic performance

Most businesses have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, but some have been more negatively affected than others. Whilst some companies have been forced to close down or downsize dramatically, others have survived by adapting substantially. During your annual review, we can help you gain a detailed insight into how your business has performed during the pandemic and help you plan for the future to ensure your survival.

What do annual reviews consist of?

Although clients’ needs can vary considerably, most annual reviews include business structure considerations, CIS/IR35 assessments and reviews of VAT schemes, personal take-home pay and whether it can be improved, comparison of costs against your competitors and sales margin analysis. The best accountancy services aim to add value wherever possible rather than just keeping you compliant with your tax and reporting obligations. Once your accounts are finalised, your year-end meeting can take place. During this meeting, the recent growth of your business will be discussed. An assessment of your future plans will also take place.
