Direct Business & Accounting Services

Accountants in Burnley

A lot of business owners think an accountant is an extravagance which can be avoided. But all too often, businesses fail because they are stuck with a huge tax bill, which they didn’t see coming, or they are fined for poorly kept records.

Many people see business accountants as stuffy, unapproachable, or patronising, selling services which cost the earth and don’t quite fit in with what a business requires.

But here at DBAS, we like to do things a little differently to most business accounting services. We have a flexible, friendly approach that has the needs of your individual business at its core.

Our service offering is comprehensive and adaptable, allowing you, the business owner, to pick and choose which elements meet your requirements. This means you aren’t having to bother with, or pay for, any services you don’t use.

We pride ourselves on our approach to business accounting services-we are professional, reliable and, above all, personable. We know tax and accounts can be daunting and confusing, which is why we explain it in a no-nonsense way, ensuring you understand your financial obligations and can meet them.

Furthermore, we are experienced and adept at financial planning and forecasting, so you can be sure your business is heading in the right direction.

Whatever you need, we are sure to have a simple and affordable solution.

Let us take the strain

Running a business is stressful and time consuming. Many business owners are doing the jobs of several people. They can be an administrator, sales person, marketer, and bookkeeper all rolled into one. It can be exhausting, and lead to mistakes being made.

If that sounds like you, perhaps it is time to delegate some of the work. After all, many people dreamed of a better work life balance when they went self-employed.

Looking after your company’s accounts, payroll, or tax duties can take precious time away from what you need to be doing to run your business.

Plus, they are not the sort of things you want to get wrong. Doing so can have extremely serious consequences.

Let us take the strain out of it, with our reliable, professional, and high quality, accounting service. We have been helping limited companies, sole traders, and partnerships succeed for What’s more, our book keeping service will make keeping everything in order an absolute breeze.

Customer Testimonials

‘Paula and Julie are so helpful and nice. Paula has explained everything to me really patiently and answered my million questions about tax in a way that makes it much more straight forward and easy to understand. Its so comforting to know I can just crack on with running my business and not have to worry about compliance. They manage our payroll, our bookkeeping, and the tax returns, so I don’t have to worry! Its definitely not my area of expertise!

Plus, Julie is great at sending me little reminders when I have a fiscal deadline looming. I feel in safe hands!’
