What we do
BJK Accounting Services
Whether you are self employed or a company, you will be required to present accounts to relevant authorities in one form or another. Accounts production involves gathering all the financial information and will be used as the most important tool to evaluate the performance of any business activity.
We at BJK Accountants use the most up to date accounting packages to reduce the work that you have to do. We will prepare the accounts from the source documents or from your summaries. We facilitate different needs and will advise you of the most suitable accountancy package to be used. It is important to prepare the accounts accurately and on time, but it is even more important to understand what the accounts are telling about the financial state of the business. We are experts in reading financial statements and will translate the numbers in the accounts to you in a simple language and will advise you of what needs to be improved to stay successful.
Business Start up
It is crucial to get the right advice when starting up your own business. Whether you are planning to set up a limited/ unlimited company or to be self employed, we at BJK Accountants are trained to the highest standards to give you the best advice and help your business start off in the right direction and develop into successful business.

One way of setting up your own business is through the formation of a company. A company is a legal form of business organisation that is a separate legal entity, and is distinct from those who run it.

Financial Planning and Projections
Financial Planning is the process of developing strategies to help you manage your financial affairs so you can build wealth, enjoy life and achieve financial security. As this may seem quite complicated process to many, we at BJK Accountants will be happy to translate this activity in more simple words and will ensure that you receive the best financial advice possible. Our expertise in this area will help you to make sure that you are fulfilling your life ambitions without having to worry about your finances.
In these uncertain times the financial planning process is a lot more important and it is therefore crucial that it is done correctly, as errors in projections and incorrect cost allocation may damage your business in the long run.
Our specially designed templates will ensure that your business receive accurate, complete and timely projections, which will help you to prepare for any uncertainties that may come your way.
Most important planning tool is a BUSINESS PLAN
A business plan is a formal statement of a set of business goals, the reasons why they are believed attainable, and the plan for reaching those goals. As the business plan is the stepping stone for your business it is important to leave it to the professionals. A good business plan will ensure that your business can attract sufficient finance to turn your dreams into reality. It is a decision making tool and should contain all the information needed to decide whether or not to pursue a goal.
Financial institutions will use the business plan as the basis when determining whether the finance should be advanced to the entity or not.
Typical structure for a business plan for a start up venture is as follows:
- cover page and table of contents
- executive summary
- business description
- business environment analysis
- industry background
- competitive analysis
- market analysis
- marketing plan
- operations plan
- management summary
- financial plan
- attachments and milestones
Despite the fact that banks recently have increased the volume of documentation required to advance the finance, we have managed to help our clients to acquire additional funds from the financial institutions. We work closely with the banks on behalf of our clients and by preparing cash flow statements and projections ensure that the bank’s requirements are met successfully.
