Business Support Services

When you are getting a new business off the ground, the last thing you want is to be distracted by administration and paperwork that take up precious time and resources.

At McCleary & Co, we offer a range of outsourced business support services so that you can focus on establishing and building your business.


An accurate, efficient bookkeeping service is essential for any business. Keeping track of money coming in and going out is crucial to managing your cash flow and keeping it positive rather than negative. And always knowing where you stand financially helps you to sharpen your competitive edge.

Our bookkeeping service can also help you maintain VAT records, to make sure you don’t pay more or less than you should, and supports our management accounting service, which can reduce the time and cost of preparing your year end accounts.

Management accounts

Making informed decisions that affect your business is impossible without up to date financial data. Management accounts are a key source of the information you need.

We can provide monthly, quarterly or annual reviews of your accounts, to best meet your needs, and use these to help you set financial budgets and targets.

Monitoring your business performance against these targets helps us identify ways to further improve your internal processes and management. Timely accounts are also a valuable tool in sourcing business finance.


Paying your staff correctly and on time is essential to keep your team and the taxman happy.

Our professional payroll team provides a cost-effective, outsourced solution to businesses of all sizes, saving you the expense of having your own in-house specialists or of buying and maintaining payroll software.

We’ll deal with your timesheets, pay slips and Bacs payments, your PAYE payments and payroll year-end submissions, and everything in between and we’re only a phone call away if you need help with any payroll issue.


Value Added Tax (VAT) can be a challenge for many businesses, which end up paying too much or too little VAT. We offer a professional VAT service to keep you compliant with HM Revenue & Customs and make sure you don’t pay more VAT than necessary.

Our service includes VAT registration, VAT control and reconciliation, preparing VAT returns and day to day advice on VAT issues.
