Boarding Kennels

Morris & Co offer a specialist service in advising on all accounting and taxation aspects of running a boarding kennel.

With the increasing popularity of foreign holidays, there has arisen the need to accommodate family pets whilst their owners are away. The quality of boarding kennel accommodation has improved as a result of people's higher expectations and increased competition. As a boarding kennel owner you will largely realise that potential new business is to be gained as much by the quality of accommodation offered as by the tariff. Individual kennels with heating when necessary and some open space is very much the expected thing. Many boarding kennels have large open spaces for play areas and offer a collection and return service. Most also cater for specialist diets. A number of boarding kennels also offer training and grooming services, as well as selling pet food and accessories.

The mixture of these ancillary services, and the popularity of each, can greatly affect your gross profit margins attainable.

You have a business to run and personal affairs you want to put in order and you want to be kept advised of opportunities that might suit you. So Morris & Co have developed a tailor-made accountancy service to meet your needs and to help you make the most of your time. We offer a personal service provided by a team who look after you and your business with the care that you provide to the "pets" that come to you.

Morris & Co use the very latest computer technology to provide a fast, accurate and efficient accountancy service in the preparation of your accounts, tax returns and payroll.

We will relieve you of the burden of form filling and work with you to ensure that you are taking full advantage of all the allowances and reliefs to which you may be entitled.

As a Morris & Co client, you will have one of our dedicated team of experts assigned to deal with your affairs and to work closely with you to ensure that all of your requirements are being met.

  • "After many years working in an independent opticians, Victoria and I thought it was time to venture out and consider opening our own opticians practice.
    We had never previously run our own business, and wanted to look for some professional and impartial advice. After speaking with other opticians, we were advised to speak with Desirie from Morris & Co.
    What can we say! From our first tentative telephone call to Desirie, to find out how we might set up a new business, all the way through to purchasing our practice, and finally opening the doors to customers, Desirie has been an inspiration. She gave us excellent advice on how to negotiate at each stage of our purchase, helped us to draw up a realistic business strategy and always kept our feet firmly on the floor.
    Since we began trading in December 2012, we have had frequent contact with Desirie and the team. We would not hesitate to recommend Desirie and Morris & Co as your future accountants, they have given us a great start to our new business, and are always keen to make sure we stay on the right pathway to success”

  • "When appointing an accountant it was very important to me to select someone who was not only knowledgeable but friendly and approachable. I have always received proactive, professional advice and I know that the specialist advice I require to run my business is only ever a phone call away. A VAT full cost and apportionment calculation was recently undertaken for my company. As a result of this, my percentages have reduced, thereby saving me additional money."
