Businesses need peace of mind that their tax situation is being managed.

Our business Accountants will prepare the accounts and tax return for business and advise on how to report losses.

As with all tax situations, beyond compliance, tax matters can be more challenging. For example, buying and selling a business, rollover relief, managing risk – these are all areas in which we can help a business.


Bookkeeping is the backbone of a business without which you lose support in making accurate financial decisions. At Flip, we will make sure that your books are set up effectively as the quality of your reporting, tax planning, business snapshots and monthly reports all depend on how effectively your books are being done.

How is our bookkeeping service different?

  • We help you select the best online accounting software considering the scalability of your business and your business growth demands.
  • A strong foundation can be the key difference between the longevity of any business; we will make sure that your cloud software is set up with a strong base. This entails setting up a proper chart of accounts, efficient cost and class structures and complete tracking of key items.
  • We will recommend key add-ons for your accounts software, which will enhance your business operations and compliment your business strategy.

Bookkeeping is not just about finding software and uploading some data to it, it is about having the right structure and making sure that the software works for your business in the short and long term.
