Accounts & Business Services

Accounting and business services for your business

At Carpenter Box, our accountancy service helps clients to obtain a thorough understanding of their financial position. We can help you understand the numbers so that you can control costs, grow margins and make more profit.

The value in a set of business accounts is not in the preparation but in the interpretation. Our aim is to provide you with the tools to take your business forward.

Working with you

For any business, it is vital that your accounts are organised and dealt with in a timely manner and that you know the amount you owe in tax well in advance of payment. We will take care of your annual accounts, relieving you and your staff of the burden and leaving you free to focus on what you do best: your business.

Carpenter Box has 100 years of experience aiding businesses with their accountancy needs. As an independent accountancy specialist, our advice is unrestricted and without bias, meaning we will always seek the best solution to your needs and objectives.

Our services

Accounts preparation and bookkeeping

Staying on top of your bookkeeping and monthly management accounts helps maintain a healthy cash flow for your business and allows you to spot trends in your finances early on. This kind of information is invaluable to help keep your business healthy and profitable.

We remove the stress by providing a fast, cost-effective and reliable service that is tailored to suit your business needs. We get to know all areas of your business and become part of your team.

Digtial & Cloud accounting

Cloud accounting allows you to keep track of your finances with a system that’s accessed through the internet and stored on a secure server. This means you can access your business data in real-time wherever you are, on a mobile device or desktop computer, and your data is secure and automatically backed up for you. It gives you the freedom to keep your finances organised, monitor your cash flow and keep track of profitability in a safe and secure environment.

Even better, with cloud accounting software you stay connected with Carpenter Box. Having instant access makes it easier than ever for us to check your figures, prepare accounts, file directly or even help with key business decisions.

Funding solutions

Raising finance can be a challenge for any business at any point in its life cycle, particularly when they are seeking to expand, refinance or release value. We work with management teams and private shareholders looking to raise private equity and debt finance to find the most appropriate funding solution.

Our specialist Funding Support Service has been designed to help businesses find, and access, the most suitable finance for their requirements.

Outsourced finance function

Running and growing a business is difficult enough without the added burden of administration and compliance. Many businesses are discovering the benefits of outsourcing as accounting becomes increasingly complex. At Carpenter Box, we can remove the stress and help you get back to doing what you do best: running your business.

We provide a range of outsourced finance services which can be tailored to meet your needs. We can help you with a range of services, whether it’s cloud accounting, payroll or management reporting. Whatever your requirements, you can access a knowledgeable and efficient team, dedicated to offering you a comprehensive back-office solution.

Our size and experience mean that we can provide a cost-effective and one-stop outsourcing solution for businesses of any size in any sector.


The constantly changing nature of employment legislation can add an enormous burden to your administration. At Carpenter Box, our payroll team will look after your business and your staff – your most valuable asset – and make sure that all of the legal and tax regulation is taken care of. We will process your payroll in a timely, cost-effective and efficient way; leaving you time to grow your business.

Trusted Adviser Services

Many of our business clients do not have their own Financial Director, often because the cost to their business would be prohibitive. Clients often ask us for this type of help so we have developed our ‘Trusted Adviser’ service to suit your business requirements and your budget.

The Trusted Adviser Solution provides a completely flexible service that can change and grow with your business. You may just require help with a specific project or you might be without a Financial Director and need ongoing support in a number of areas. We offer a tailored solution designed to meet your needs.
