Accounting services

Our mission is to have a positive effect on the way your business operates, resulting in improved performance and increased profitability.

We offer a wide range of bespoke solutions for small and medium sized businesses from payroll and book-keeping through to financial planning.

All the benefits of having an accounts department, without the cost and hassle.

Many of our clients regard Hub3 as their accounts department rather than their accountants. We provide the outsourced solution which enables our clients to concentrate on running their business without having to worry about the bother of the administration and record keeping.

From the production of annual accounts to a fully outsourced accounting support department Hub3 have the solution for your business.

The following are a selection of the services which we can provide;

Business start up advice

If you are thinking about starting a business it is often one of the biggest decisions that you will make and it is essential that you get as much good advice as possible. We can give general advice about running your business as well as how to set up and structure your business. We can help with HMRC registration for Sole Traders and Limited Companies as well as Company formation with Companies House. We can also help with setting up transaction recording procedures, whether this is in the form of ledger books, spreadsheets or installation and training on a suitable accounting software package.

Self assessment tax returns

Completion of your tax return can be a big headache and a surprisingly large number of people miss deadlines and subsequently incur penalties. Take the worry out of dealing with your tax return as we can calculate your figures, prepare your return, calculate your tax payments and advise you of the dates and amounts which you need to pay. We will file your tax return online using our specialist software package and receive instant confirmation that your return has been accepted by HMRC.

Accounts preparation

We can produce annual accounts for sole traders and limited companies, ensuring that they are in the correct format and are filed with the necessary bodies in accordance with current regulatory requirements.

VAT returns

If the thought of the quarterly VAT deadline fills you with dread and conjures up thoughts of late nights ploughing through receipts, then you need our help. Just let us have your information either in the form of a computer file or a bag of receipts and let us get the job done!

Payroll processing and pension auto-enrolment

We can process your payroll to ensure that the correct tax calculations are performed and the monthly, quarterly and annual returns are filed correctly. Whatever the size of your business we can take responsibility for your payroll function. We can also advise and administrate for all auto enrolment pension requirements.


If you are a new or growing business don't worry about keeping on top of your paperwork as we can help you by maintaining your current system or assisting in setting up a new system such as Sage Line 50, which we run on our in house software. We can act as your processing department or we can work with your existing bookkeeper to help out as and when required.

Management accounts preparation

If you need to make decisions about your business or if you worry that you have lost track of how your business is performing, then our management accounting service may be the answer. Rather than waiting until the end of the year to know how your business has performed, get up to date information on a monthly or quarterly basis to remove the guesswork and get timely and accurate profitability and performance figures, giving you an increased level of control and helping you to make more informed business decisions.

Business planning and forecasting

Looking forwards rather than backwards is an essential part of running a business and whilst it is important to know past performance, it is also important to go through the planning process as this gives you an opportunity to focus on strategy, identify resources and monitor performance against expectations.
