A more economical service
Silk Lite is ideal when you are happy to spend some time on your own bookkeeping and VAT returns – then we’ll help with the rest!
'Cassons have been my accountants for over 15 years and I have always been delighted with the level of service they have provided. I have found them to be consistently professional, proactive and very personable, and always ensuring I am made aware of any issues which could affect my practice.'
Silk Lite is a combination of your time plus our time and resources. We will provide you with access to Xero cloud based accounting software (free of charge!) which will make it very simple and straightforward for you to complete your own bookkeeping and VAT returns. You can email us your records and we’ll use them to prepare your accounts and tax return. We’ll also give help and advice about your tax planning opportunities.
Of course you will still have access to our additional services such as tax forecasting and personal financial planning (through Cassons Financial Planning Limited) which includes advice on pensions, investments. Some additional costs may be incurred, but we will tell you in advance.
