Full-Service Essex Accountants
Established Essex accountants for over thirty years, Moonlite Accounts help small and medium sized businesses save money across Essex and the London area, as well as many other southern and eastern counties. Situated just five minutes from Junction 30 M25.
As Essex (Chafford Hundred & Grays based) accountants, we pride ourselves on providing very competitive pricing while maintaining excellent accounting practices you would expect to find at a much larger, more expensive accountancy firm.
Like you, we're a relatively small company, meaning we can appreciate the needs of your business whether you're a sole trader, a medium sized business, or anything in between. We understand the costs that come with running a business of your size, which is especially clear in the quality (and clarity) of our Essex bookkeeping service.

Our bookkeeping service is a competitively priced solution for both businesses and individuals who need to record and classify financial transactions (activities).
We provide single or double entry bookkeeping for both tax and VAT purposes, as well as full balance sheet recording where needed.
Few Essex accountants can prepare your accounts as well, and at as competitive a price, as Moonlite Accounts.
We keep on top of your calendar, notifying you when it's time to prepare your accounts so to arrange an appointment, though in some cases a physical appointment may be unnecessary.
We typically work on a four week turnaround, but we do offer an express service to those who are running late in preparing their accounts.
If you're self employed or operate a small business of under one hundred employees, we can provide you with excellent value PAYE (Pay As You Earn) payroll services, whether your employees are paid weekly, fortnightly, monthly, or yearly.
At year end we organise and deal with all employee P60 preperations on your behalf, EPS and FPS Submissions are done on or before every pay period, ensuring you are not caught out by HMRC's penalties for late submission.
Due to the recent change in legislation, nearly all employers are required to provide a work place pension, which you may have heard being called as Auto Enrolment. We handle all pension payments and use the government aproved NEST pension scheme unless you have an alternative pension provider in mind.
Maintaining your business day to day can be a tiresome task.
Our full-service accountancy here at Moonlite Accounts can help you to keep track of your inputs and outputs, month on month, so you're able to get back to maintaining your company.
Unfortunately for the self-employed, if your annual turnover (fees, sales, and reimbursed expenses) exceeds £83,000, (or £6916.66 in any one month) or indeed if you know you're likely to reach that threshold within 30 days, you are required to become VAT registered.
There are many reasons why an individual or partnership may require submission of a Self Assessment.
Directors paying a dividend, Private Pension holders, as well as Sole Traders and Partnerships.
We provide a full Self Assessment preperation and submissions where needed.
Whether you require a Self Assessment to be complied and submitted from your existing accounts, or need us to check over a completed Self Assessment prior to submission we can help.
Deadlines for filing your Self Assessment Tax Return are 31st October for paper submissions, and 31st January for an online submission.
Fines for failing to submit your Self Assessment on time can result in upto £1200. So it is vital that you have your Tax Return completed and sent in on time.
If you're a subcontractor, our Essex accountants can take the stress out of dealing with CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) refunds for you.
Looking over your CIS Payslips, we'll calculate how much tax you have paid, how much you still owe, or (as is sometimes the case), how much you're due back as a refund.
In certain situations you may have to pay tax on CIS alongside self employment tax. In these circumstances it's best to speak with the professionals here at Moonlite Accounts to ensure you're not under, or overpaying on your requirements.
For advice regarding VAT and TAX, or for more general accounting concerns, get in touch with Moonlite Accounts today.
Advice can range anywhere from whether you should stick to being self-employed or become a limited company, to whether you need to become VAT registered.
As a thank you for trusting us with your accounts; all existing clients receive our advice free of charge.
