Welcome to Jon Chapple & Co Chartered Accountants

Services that we offer

We offer all the accounting and tax services that a small professional business will need:

Accounts & tax returns for small companies

VAT returns, payroll & company secretarial services

Personal tax returns & tax planning advice for directors and shareholders

Formation & structuring of companies for new businesses

Our first speciality is the preparation of small company unaudited accounts. By "small", we mean annual sales of less than £500,000, annual profits of less than £300,000, and 9 or fewer staff.

90% of our small company clients are managed and owned by one or two Directors/Shareholders.

With very few exceptions, our limited company clients are professionals, consultants and contractors.

Our second speciality is the preparation of sole trader accounts and tax returns.

Thirdly, we prepare and file personal tax returns for people who have PAYE jobs (ie their main income is NOT via self employment) but who nonetheless have slightly more complex tax affairs –for example, they may have rental property, investment income, or a consulting business as a sideline.

About half of our clients have been with us since they started their business. The other half have come to us from other accountants via word of mouth.

Services that we don't offer

  • We are accountants and tax advisers - we are not auditors. So if you have a large company, and the Companies Act requires you to have audited accounts, you need a bigger accounting firm than us.
  • We are not equipped to handle clients with more than 9 staff, or businesses with a high staff turnover, and/or businesses who extensively employ temp staff.
  • With few exceptions we do not service clients whose staff are subcontractors within the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).
  • If you are in the restaurant, construction or retail business, we are almost certainly not the right accounting firm for you.
  • We do not offer a dedicated bookkeeping service. We will of course offer advice on how you should keep your business records, in such a way that you are in compliance with the law, AND your time spent doing so is minimised.
  • We do not offer professional advice on Trust Tax or Inheritance tax. However, we are always happy to find a suitable specialist for our clients on the rare occasions when such advice is required.
