Services

Moore Stephens provides a range of accounting and business advisory services. Additional services relevant to the manufacturing & engineering sector include:

Business valuations

We recognise that each valuation is unique and not a simple numbers exercise.  We provide valuation services in relation to acquisitions, disposals, mergers, disputes and restructuring. We also assist with financial reporting matters, such as purchase price allocation (PPA), impairment testing and the valuation of financial instruments such as share options.

Financial due diligence

Financial due diligence is a critical aspect of transaction planning, as it can affect the purchase price for a business or even the decision whether to proceed. Our approach is to provide peace-of-mind by identifying all the critical factors for which an informed decision can then be made.

R&D tax relief

R&D tax relief allows companies to substantially uplift qualifying costs for tax purposes, so that taxable profits can be reduced. Many companies have already claimed R&D tax relief to some extent, and some of these companies may even have had a visit from tax inspectors as a result of the claim. However, there is often more that can be claimed and our team of accountants can provide a second opinion.

Outsourcing

Our suite of outsourcing services allows any size of business to outsource some or all of the business, financial and administrative functions, in order to free up valuable resources and reduce costs. These services include accounting systems & software, annual financial reporting, bookkeeping & accounting, company information & secretarial, employers' support & payroll, tax & VAT-compliance and wealth management.
