Our Services

Before founding R.A.Lock & Co. I worked in accountancy practices for many years,dealing in the main with accountancy and taxation matters for small and medium – sized enterprises and individuals. I consider, therefore, that I am well qualified to deal with any problems that clients might have in these areas and to give appropriate advice. I am always prepared to discuss with clients any business problems they have and I regard this as an important part of my service.

In addition to the preparation of accounts and tax returns, I can deal with the formation of limited companies and filing statutory returns. I also offer a payroll service.

With the complexities of the modern business world it is important to keep up to date with legislative changes. To this end, I am a member of two local accountants’ groups; we meet regularly to discuss practical problems and to have technical updates. I also attend other seminars on technical matters. I am active in the South Essex Society of Chartered Accountants and served as President in 2008-2009.

Taxation problems can be particularly complex and, if I am unable to supply an answer to a problem myself, I have contacts with specialists in larger accountancy firms. These specialists will give advice on specific points at a moderate cost.
