The Virgate Accounts Team provide SMEs with a fully managed outsourced finance function
We believe that today’s business owners need and want their accountant to be an all-round business adviser. Producing a set of accounts at the end of the year isn’t enough. By then, it’s too late to impact on performance.
We help you to run a better business
We’ll keep you informed so you can act on the critical numbers that up-to-date accounts can give you. We remove the need for you to hire bookkeepers and accountants, as we carry out all of the day-to-day tasks instead.
Our team’s extensive experience and exposure to so many businesses in the retail & hospitality industry puts us in the fantastic position to help businesses to grow and thrive by advising on industry standards and best practices.
We really get to know our clients and what makes them tick. We pride ourselves on being more than just their accountants, we work closely with our clients, supporting and advising them.
Your One Stop Shop
There is a vast amount of legislation, compliance procedures and deadlines that all business owners have to face and we ensure these are covered. We provide the ‘one stop shop’ for all accountancy needs as our team supports our clients from the daily bookkeeping all the way through to their year end accounts.
Our services are covered by fixed monthly fees based on the size of the business. We don’t believe in hidden extras or nasty surprises, which is why our pricing policy is simple and transparent!
