Back to Black offer a comprehensive range of bookkeeping and accountancy services:

Telephone Reception Service

Making Tax Digital (MTD)

Do you still use Excel for your bookkeeping and accountancy? Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a government scheme designed to move the tax system online, currently all VAT registered companies are required to submit their returns online with further changes expected in 2020. We strongly advise making the change sooner rather than later, not only to ensure you are compliant when the time comes but also to save you time and expense in your accounting.



If your turnover exceeds the UK VAT threshold (currently £85,000) you will need to register for VAT. There are also certain circumstances where you may wish to register voluntarily, even when your turnover is below the threshold. We are able to help you traverse this journey, from deciding whether to become VAT registered, to the registration process, to filing your returns.



Payroll is an integral part of any business and ensuring your staff are paid on time and correctly is essential for company morale. If the administration of your payroll is becoming a burden, Back to Black can lighten the load, providing accurate, on time payroll management that is tailored to your business.
