Accounting Services for Architects in London and the South East

To provide truly effective business advice and support, you need a team with plenty of relevant experience.

We’ve specialised in advising the professional services sector for many years, and work with a large number of architect practices. In addition our property sector team has extensive experience in every aspect of the property market including investment in residential or commercial land and buildings.

Our aim is to provide advice and support tailored to your business needs. This can include:

As well as ensuring self assessment returns are accurate and filed on time, we can help you and your Partners save money and protect the future through effective tax planning. Our personal tax team can provide advice and guidance on all aspects of your tax affairs, along with cash flow modelling, financial planning and investment management.

This can include:

  • Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax planning
  • Inheritance Tax and estate planning
  • Executorships and administering estates
  • Trust taxation and accounts
  • International tax

We can also advise on a range of strategic support services to help grow your practice including a review of the most appropriate trading status and advising on LLP conversion.

LLP and limited company conversions

We were one of the first accountancy firms to take on limited liability status, and started trading as a limited liability partnership (LLP) from 1 April 2004.

Since then, we’ve helped many professional services practices to convert to LLP status.

As an LLP, you combine the benefits of limited liability with the flexibility of organising your internal structure as a traditional partnership. You have the same tax rules as a partnership, you can secure bank borrowings on debtors, and you can create a more corporate structure with its own assets and subsidiary companies.

There’s a lot to consider when setting up an LLP – such as engagement terms, profit sharing and exit strategies. We can help you through the process, making it as smooth as possible for everyone involved, including partners, employees, bankers, clients, landlords and suppliers.

Alternatively, conversion to a limited company might be more appropriate for your practice. You might be attracted by the extra credibility that corporate status can bring, or by the ability to pay dividends to shareholders or set up an approved pension scheme. We can advise you on the implications, and help you with all aspects of conversion.
