As a local accountant, we are free to drop in or chat anytime if you have any day-to-day queries and with our guidance we can help you become tax efficient.

We also play a crucial role across different types of businesses, including the self-employed, startups, and medium-sized enterprises. We understand how each business has unique financial needs and challenges, and we can provide specialised services tailored to these needs.

Accountancy For Self-Employed Individuals

We understand the challenges of being self-employed. Having to balance your work and accounting needs can be challenging, especially if you are new to being self-employed it can often feel overwhelming. We can help you focus on your core skills and manage the tax and accountancy side of things for you so you do not have to worry about compliance.

Tax Planning and Compliance

We help self-employed individuals navigate complex tax laws to ensure compliance and optimise tax returns. We can advise on deductions, tax credits, and strategies to reduce tax liabilities.

Financial Record-Keeping

Proper organisation of financial records is critical for self-employed individuals. Here at TFMC, we will set up efficient systems for tracking income and expenses, crucial for accurate tax filing and financial analysis.

Cash Flow Management

We analyse cash flow patterns to help self-employed individuals manage finances more effectively, ensuring you have funds available for business expenses and personal withdrawals.

Accountancy For Startups

From helping you secure new funds to cash flow management, our team can help your small start-up business grow from a stable foundation. We have many years of experience helping start-ups access funds and helping them to become tax efficient. It is very easy to make accounting mistakes and we will eliminate this problem. Start-ups sometimes also do not realise what support is available to them and we can help you acquire seed funding from both governmental and private sources where appropriate.

Business Planning and Budgeting

Our accountants assist startups in creating realistic financial projections and budgets that are crucial for guiding business strategy and securing funding.

Fundraising Support

We will prepare financial statements and reports that are necessary for presenting to potential investors or lenders. Our accountants will ensure that these documents are professionally prepared and comply with regulatory standards.

Regulatory Compliance

Startups often face numerous regulatory requirements, and our accountants ensure compliance with financial regulations, which can include filings for incorporation, payroll setup, and other statutory requirements.

Accountancy For Medium-Sized Businesses

As your business grows and you employ more staff, payroll and accounting software becomes a necessary feature of your day-to-day operations. We can help set up and manage your processes so that tax returns and compliance is a swift process that does not take up hours of your time when you could be focusing on growing your business.

Strategic Financial Management

As businesses grow, managing finances becomes more complex. We help medium-sized businesses with financial planning, risk management, and strategic decision-making to foster growth and stability.

Auditing and Assurance Services

Our local accountants provide auditing services, which are often required for medium-sized companies to satisfy stakeholders such as investors, banks, and regulatory bodies.

Efficiency Improvements

Our team will identify inefficiencies in your business processes and suggest improvements. This might include streamlining accounting practices, improving inventory management, or enhancing internal controls.

Advanced Bookkeeping Systems

At The Financial Management Centre in Birkenhead, our bookkeeping specialists are familiar with a wide range of bookkeeping programmes such as Sage, QuickBooks, Xero and KashFlow.

We may also complete your books manually. This flexibility means you are not required to migrate to a new and unfamiliar bookkeeping system when you retain our services.

However, if you a new business and so you currently do not have any meaningful bookkeeping system currently in place, we shall gladly set you up with an electronic bookkeeping package as part of the initial setup when you first retain our services.

Trusted Business Advisors

When you elect for us to complete your books for your Birkenhead business, we go much further than to simply ‘balance your books.’

All of our advisors have worked in the business financial management field for many years, so we will be able to advise you on the implications of financial performance data when we balance your books.

This means you gain a trusted business advisor as well as a bookkeeper. This helps your business avoid mistakes and focus on activities that are proven to yield the most profit for you.

Getting Help Today

The truth is, to run a successful business in Birkenhead you must be financially savvy. This means you must be able to pinpoint with laser sharp accuracy exactly where in your business you are making and losing money.

If you do not understand the business’s financial performance, you have little chance of staying in business for very long. Ensure you do not avoid the common fate where you go out of business because your cash flow becomes out of control.

See What Others Are Saying

As a small charity, we don't have the budgets or in house expertise of some larger organisations. What we wanted was an organisation that we could partner with and trust to get our end of year accounts sorted and then start planning for the future. Tom worked closely with us, overcame some of our, less-than-polished, processes and enabled us to get the return done in time and at a price that was very reasonable. We'd definitely recommend The Financial Management Centre.

3 years ago, I referred one of my relatives, Janet, to Tom Cowley. Janet was returning to the Wirral from South Africa and required all her self-assessment and tax returns sorting out. Tom has continued to provide this service for Janet every year since. Her words to describe Tom are "brilliant, a top man who is well worth a great testimonial"! We are both happy to refer Tom Cowley. Well done!

— Joanne Finnerty – Director, Joanne Finnerty Recruitment Limited

We have been clients of the Wirral office of The Financial Management Centre for over three years. During this time we have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and ability of the Wirral office in working with our in house administration. Due to a forthcoming retirement we have decide to fully outsource our accounting and administration to the Wirral office and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.
