All-inclusive core accountancy service

We offer a hassle-free all-inclusive core accountancy service for limited companies in the UK. A core accountancy service is not just about producing paperwork and filing it with the relevant authorities. Once you are using our service, you can ask us ingoing questions and we can provide tax advice. We aim to be useful to you as you embark on being a company director. You will have a senior accountant as your primary contact, who can also answer your ongoing questions as part of our service.

The core accountancy main services are the company accounts and tax returns. However, it also includes other services provided on this website at no extra cost, representing excellent value for money. For example, the confirmation statement service alone costs £34+vat as a standalone service and VAT and payroll registration costs £29+vat each as a standalone service.

Our core service includes the following:

  • Company yearend accounts (including Companies House filing)
  • Company corporation tax return (to HMRC)
  • Dealing with HMRC and becoming your authorised agent
  • Company annual confirmation statement filing (with Companies House)
  • Company secretarial services e.g. filing changes to company officers/address/structure
  • Registering director(s)/shareholder(s) with HMRC for self-assessment
  • Filing self-assessment tax returns with HMRC for director(s)/shareholder(s)
  • VAT registration
  • Ad hoc ongoing advice
  • Legal tax planning discussions
  • Management accounts
  • Payroll (including annual payroll for directors)

Optional extras:

  • Filing quarterly VAT returns - £16 per month
  • Bookkeeping & management accounts preparation - £25 per hour

We will agree the specific services to be provided and monthly fee in a transparent bespoke letter of engagement, so you know where you stand and what fees will fall due.

Can I use your core accounting service even if I have not formed my company through Mint Formations?

Yes, you use us as your accountancy firm even if the company is not registered through mint formations. However, we need all the details including the company name, number, webfiling authentication code, name of one director and the shareholder information.

When and how often are company accounts filed?

For any company, accounts must be filed every financial year. For a new company, it must be filed within 21 months of incorporation or within 9 months of accounting reference date (ARD). For example, a company registered on 13 January 2015, will have the accounting reference date of 31 January 2016. The deadline for filing the accounts for this company will be 31 October 2016.

I only traded briefly or for part of the year. Can I not just file dormant accounts?

No, if a company has undertaken any trading at all during its financial year then dormant accounts cannot be filed and a corporation tax return must be filed. We can discuss cost-effective solution with you if there has been minimal trading.

What if the company accounts are not filed on time?

You will have to pay penalties if you don’t file your accounts with Companies House by the deadline.

What penalty is imposed by Companies House for late filing?

Time after the deadline penalty (for private limited companies)

  • Up to 1 month - £150
  • 1 to 3 months - £375
  • 3 to 6 months - £750
  • More than 6 months - £1,500

The penalty is doubled if your accounts are late two years in a row.

Do directors and shareholders have to file a tax return in addition to company accounts?

Yes, HMRC request that limited company directors register for self-assessment and file personal tax returns. By law, taxable income (e.g dividends as a shareholder) must be disclosed to HMRC and there are penalties and interest applied for late submission and late payment of personal tax.

What happens after I purchase the service?

A senior accountant will introduce themselves to you, asking if you have any questions at this time and providing a letter of engagement. Once signed with any ID required (if you have not already provided ID for incorporation) we can commence service. We will request additional information needed to provide each service.

We would highly recommend anyone use Mint Formations to open their UK business and with help in opening your UK business bank accounts.

Initially, I was very hesitant to register my new limited company from online website. I chose Mint because of their highly professional website. I am glad I did as the staff were very polite, professional and exceptionally helpful. They managed to register my company same day and sent me all the paperwork saving me a lot of time.

Jessica Bingham

I live in Holland. I went to the Companies House website and downloaded the application. There was so much to fill and many questions. I was worried about making mistakes. So, I searched Google and found Mint who does everything online. They have a very easy to use Website with clear instructions. I completed my application in the night and the next my new company was formed. Simple and quick.

Lucas Jansen

I was thinking of using a lawyer or an accountant to form my new UK company. Then I found Mint website online and spoke to Kate. It immediately became clear that I need not waste my money with a lawyer. I made an online application and received all my official paperwork in an email the following day.

James Tomblin

I was not sure how to deal with company formation as this is my first experience in starting my own business. A friend of mine recommended Mint and he was right. They made it really simple for me and answered all my questions with patience and help me set it up. I would recommend Mint to anyone who is starting a new business.
