Filing Opticians Accounts At Companies House

Companies have to file accounts to Companies House within 21 months of the date of their incorporation or within 9 months of the company's year end.

Advice may be needed in connection with the start up position and the company's year end date to ensure that filing penalties are avoided.

An Annual Return is also required to be completed each year which details the directors and shareholders together with the company secretary.

Directors have a responsibility to act in the best interests of the company and should conduct their financial affairs in accordance with the behaviour of a reasonable person bearing in mind the knowledge that they possess. Clearly an accountant or a solicitor would be deemed to have far greater knowledge than a non professional in these matters.

Board minutes should be maintained in relation to the company's affairs which evidence that good conduct and discipline has been adhered to and acts as a true record of business affairs should evidence be required. Minutes are occasionally requested by the HM Revenue and Customs to prove transactions in earlier accounting periods.

Testimonials

  • "Over a number of years Morris & Co have provided me with sound financial and business advice. Their in depth knowledge of my particular sector has proved invaluable and they explain my accounts in a way that is easy to understand. All my questions are answered promptly and efficiently and I really appreciate their level of expertise."
    David Evans, R T Booth & Co Ltd
  • "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."
    Ian McGarvey, Ian McGarvey Opticians Ltd
  • "Having had dealings with Desirie Lea of Morris and Co from the very inception of my company, I have always been impressed with how approachable everyone has been, from the partners to the receptionists. I had spoken to several accountants before instructing Desirie to take charge of my accounts, and from the first phonecall, Desirie impressed me with her forthright manner and her perceptive analysis of various scenarios I put to her. She is always on the ball and is a pleasure to deal with."
    Lloyd Griffiths, Lloyd Griffiths Limited
  • "Desirie and her team have been acting on my behalf since 2002 and I am delighted with the service they provide. As specialists in the ophthalmic sector, they are able to take away the stress of dealing with the partial exemption calculations for VAT purposes, which is a real bonus. I have regular meetings with them at my premises to discuss strategic issues and plan for the future. Management accounts are prepared on a quarterly basis for my company which includes a detailed analysis/commentary of my trading results. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Morris and Co to my fellow professionals."
