We know the trade. Established by Emma Catterall ACMA, who has held senior finance
roles with both Whitbread and Punch Taverns, Copperfield Associates really understands
both pubcos and licensees, giving you the benefit of our independent expertise.
We make your life easier. Our online accounting system is very straightforward,
saving you time on your paperwork and giving you all your information at your fingertips.
We operate to the highest standards. As fully qualified chartered management accountants
we have been trained in both business and accountancy and are regulated by CIMA,
one of the oldest and most prestigious accountancy bodies.
We ensure you start off and remain compliant with your legal and statutory responsibilities
when it comes to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs - giving you peace of mind and
enabling you to focus on running a great pub.
But we don't believe in simply being compliant - your figures can be fine for the
tax man yet many months out of date for your business. We will provide you with
the very latest online bookkeeping system and show you just how easy and quick it
is to use. You get 24/7 access to your latest income, expenses and cash figures.
No more waiting for your accountant to call back - you have the very best information
at your fingertips.
BOOKKEEPING & REGULATORY COMPLIANCE
Once we've dotted the i's and crossed the t's for you, it's all about building your
business. We will prepare regular management accounts for you. Easy to understand,
with a full commentary provided, these reports will highlight trends, issues and
opportunities. You will also have a named Associate adviser who will follow up your
management accounts with a consultancy visit. We will help you spot problems before
they arise and enable you to take advantage of the opportunities open to you to build
COMMERCIAL CONSULTANCY & ADVICE
We help you to approach your new business with your eyes wide open. Before you take
on your pub, we will sit down with you and develop a two year cash-flow and profit
forecast so you know exactly what's required to make your new business a success.
We will also show you what might happen if things change - for example if sales levels
are higher or lower than you anticipate. This service is also available to existing
businesses, invaluable if you're considering an investment or expansion opportunity.
