Owner managed and family businesses are the backbone of the British economy. They combine entrepreneurial drive with the passion and commitment that comes from upholding a family tradition.
Alongside this drive and commitment, though, comes potential pitfalls. Family and owner managed businesses need to ensure they have the best corporate structure, the right people in the right jobs, and that they plan for transitions in a professional way. Don't just rely on personal or family ties and loyalties to work in the company’s favour.
Neal & Co has worked with many family businesses for over half a century and we are perfectly placed, together with our financial planning team, to offer advice on business development, succession planning, corporate finance, tax and insurance.

Making Tax Digital is part of UK Government’s plans to modernise the tax system. The plan is for every business to use apps and software to keep their records up to date, and file their tax returns online.
The original timetable for implementation has been delayed. Currently, only businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold (£85,000) will be required to keep digital records from 2019 onwards, and only for VAT.
Other records, and businesses with lower turnovers, will be required to keep online records some time after 2019. We will keep you up to date with the timescales as and when they are announced.
Neal & Co already supports Sage One cloud-based accounting. By moving your accounts to an online package like Sage One, complying with the new regulations – whenever they happen – will be much more straightforward.

Online or cloud-based accounting represents a step into the future for many businesses. If you’re used to keeping paper accounts, making the move online – which all businesses will have to do in the coming years as part of the Government’s Making Tax Digital strategy – could at first appear a little daunting.
Neal & Co supports Sage One online accounting which allows you to manage your data online and have instant access to the information you need.

Not only does this protect your and your clients’ information from digital hackers, it also means anyone who needs to access your company accounts can do so, safely and securely.

Many of our clients are increasingly enjoying the benefits of outsourcing accounting functions like payroll, VAT and CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) payments to our financial professionals.
For small businesses the attractions are clear. If you only have a small office staff, or even have to do much of the admin work yourself, relieving your business of a such time-consuming regular activities can free up key staff to concentrate on more valuable work. But the benefits are just as relevant for larger businesses who can see significant cost savings from outsourcing non-core accounting functions.
We can administer PAYE, national insurance, statutory sick pay, maternity pay and student loan deductions; administer pension schemes and incentive schemes; complete statutory forms such as P33, P45 and P60; organise all payments and provide customised payslips.

If you’re selling your business, merging it with or buying another one; offering shares to the public or to employees; or planning for inheritance, divorce or gifts for children, you need to know the value of the shares in your business.
The price of shares is determined by obvious factors, such as how well a company is doing and how well it is likely to do in the future. These influence how attractive a company’s shares are likely to be to a potential purchaser. Share price can also be affected by wider issues such as the market in general, the economy and the political landscape.
Neal & Co experts have many years’ experience assessing share prices to give accurate valuations that are acceptable to the company and its potential investors. We are also experienced in drawing up shareholder agreements which meet with the approval of all relevant parties.
