PKF bba provides a range of high quality audit, accounting, company secretarial, tax and business advisory services, as well as training and advice to new businesses.
Accountancy & Bookkeeping
Our primary business activity is the preparation of annual accounts for sole traders, partnerships and Jersey limited companies for submission and agreement with the Comptroller of Taxes in Jersey.
The majority of our clients use accounting software packages such as Quickbooks, Xero and Sage and, as a result, our staff are very familiar with their operation and are able to minimise the time spent preparing accounts. We have dedicated accredited QuickBooks/Xero trainers available to assist you.
We are confident that we can guide you and converse in language that you understand when explaining the important issues surrounding your accounts.
We also provide assistance with the setting up and subsequent maintenance of your computerised or manual accounting records on a regular basis.
For more information, please contact Tim Zeale.
