KPMG handle all tax compliance issues and take year-end accounts and returns off your hands, so there’s no end-of-the-year panic. All of your tax information goes onto one integrated platform so KPMG can easily provide full records to HRMC and you’re not wasting time searching through confusing spreadsheets.

Payroll and pensions

Let KPMG take care of all your accounting, bookkeeping, tax, pension and payroll needs, so you can focus on the more urgent things for your business. Depending on the package you choose they can also help you calculate and record employee pay, work out PAYE, and help you issue payslips, P45s and P60s.
