What we do

We deal with your financial matters so that you can get on with doing what you do best – running a successful and profitable business.

By accessing all that SMART has to offer, you have your own dedicated team of financial management advisors, bookkeepers, payroll staff, tax experts and FCO all rolled into one – but without the hefty costs associated with an in-house team.

Our comprehensive virtual finance functions include:

Management information

Smart cloud based management information is available to you 24/7 – anytime, anywhere.

Easy to understand, accurate and up to date management information is at your fingertips.

Because we are able to supply you with real time operational data and regular, up to date financial information, you are able to see, at a glance, how your business is performing and make adjustments to ensure you financial goals are on track.

Cashflow forecasting

Cashflow is the life blood of any business but getting it right is easier said than done.

A lack of cashflow can cause serious issues for your business, from not being able to keep the lights on to not having enough cash to pay employees.

Smart cashflow management requires three elements: planning, predictions and due diligence – and that’s where we can help.

We will ensure that you have the right financial information in a format that is easy to understand to make smart cashflow decisions.

VAT and tax services

Our comprehensives tax service means you don’t have to worry about filling out complicated tax or VAT returns – or wondering how to apply for tax reliefs such as R&D grants.

Our dedicated team will handle your business tax matters remotely, using the latest cloud technology.

As your virtual tax agent, we will deal with everything on your behalf, filing VAT returns, dealing with routine HMRC correspondence, submitting annual tax returns and Corporation Tax.

We also ensure that you never pay a penny more tax than you need to and will ensure that any tax reliefs or applicable R&D claims are maximised.


Get expert payroll, automatic enrolment and HR advice from Smart. Whether you need a comprehensive payroll service or specific HR advice, we will ensure you stay compliant.

We will run your payroll using real-time information (RTI) managing the calculation and submission of PAYE and CIS payments.

By outsourcing your payroll function remotely, we will ensure that:

  • The latest legislation is adhered to
  • Third party agencies including HMRC, pension providers and local authorities receive the information they require on time in the format they require – ensuring no fines for non-compliance


Smarter bookkeeping means ensuring your invoices and expenses are recorded accurately using cloud technology and real time bank feeds to ensure your reconciliations are up to date.

Our team will also prepare your month end adjustments so that you know exactly where your business stands financially.
