Businesses can be totally unaware of certain taxes. One example of this is the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). It covers a broader scope of activities than is apparent, to untrained eyes.

Excellent Book Keeping Service highly recommended.
Aston Black have provided accountancy services to my company, Topcat Metrology Ltd for the last six years. They are efficient, professional and extremely helpful, always going out of their way to ensure that the company’s record keeping is accurate and timely. I would heartily recommend them to other small businesses for payroll, end of year and VAT accounting

Aston Black have handled both my company and personal accounts for the last two years. The service has been absolutely impeccable, communication is prompt and clear and I’m able to relax knowing that everything will be dealt with at the correct time and in the most financially efficient manner. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
