Chartered Accountants Wanstead
A nice leafy suburban area of North East London, Wanstead is the head office to our small network of local branches.
Our specialist audit and advanced tax planning teams are both based here, which truly means that “City firm” expertise is available right on your doorstep.
And being located in outer London means we don’t charge “City” prices.
Travel in couldn’t be easier as we are located on Wanstead high street within a few minutes’ walk of both Snaresbrook and Wanstead Underground stations.
25 minutes from the middle of London on the Central line. That’s the red one.
Our Wanstead office provides the full range of services for a wide range of clients.
Accounting and Legal Services include:-
- Statutory accounts
- Management Accounts
- Cloud Accounting and Book-keeping
- Tax planning and advice
- Self-assessment tax returns
- VAT returns
- Legal services
- General business advice
Whether you’re a sole trader looking for a no-frills accounting service or a larger business seeking a firm that provides more complex tax or business advice, we can help.
Whereas the majority of local accountancy firms offer a basic service to smaller companies, we are of a size where we can truly cover all financial needs while maintaining the feel of a friendly local firm. Large enough to cope and small enough to care as the cliché goes.
We even have our own legal services department which means you won’t need a separate solicitor to draft legal documents such as Shareholders Agreements or Lasting Powers of Attorney. We can do the whole shebang.
However large your business becomes, you can be sure that you won’t ever outgrow us; we will always be thereto help you. We’ve watched many of our small sole trader businesses grow to become large partnerships and limited companies and are ideally qualified to help when you need to do the same.

Our Key Services
Your accounts – let’s make them work for you
These days, it’s easier than ever to keep on top of your accounts. But that’s not the whole story.
It’s true that cloud accounting software makes accurate record keeping simple. At the click of a button or the press of a screen, you can issue invoices and purchase orders, tot up your expenditure or enter receipts just by scanning them.
Yet, having accurate figures is one thing. Knowing what to do with them is another.
This is where THP’s friendly and expert accountants come in. When we take care of your accounts, we can do a whole lot more than making sure the sums add up.
What we also do is help make your accounts work for you. As your accountants, these are just some of the ways we can use our knowledge and experience to help you:
- Make sure you’re making full use of tax breaks – including those you might not know about
- Ensure you’re on the right VAT scheme – to optimise your income and cashflow
- Produce monthly management accounts – so you can make business decisions based on accurate data
- Take care of your tax returns – whether for Income Tax, VAT, CIS or Corporation Tax
- Find new ways to help you thrive – we can help you with everything from R&D tax breaks to unclaimed capital allowances.
At THP, we believe that a good accountant does much more than make sure your accounts are correctly entered into your software. We believe that your accounts are the source of opportunities – whether to save tax, secure funding, improve cash flow or other business goals that are important to you.
So why not put your accounts to work? Get in touch with our helpful team of accountants today to get started.
To audit or not to audit – that is the question!
The answer to that question is also needed by many growing businesses. As your turnover, assets and staff numbers grow, so does the likelihood that you legally need an annual audit. If you’re unsure, jump to the section below for help with Audit services.
If you need to get your accounts audited, our audit services are designed to make sure the process does not disrupt the running of your business. Our audits also result in financial reporting with significant commercial value to you.
If your company doesn’t require an audit, don’t rule one out – especially if your business is growing fast! A thorough audit can give you:
- The most accurate, up-to-date financial information for making good decisions
- A reduced risk of fraud or error, because irregularities are likely to be found quickly
- Extra credibility with lenders, clients and credit rating agencies.
Our auditors are fully experienced and all audits are signed off by our in-house RIs (Responsible Individuals). Get in touch with our Audit Team today to learn more or click the button below for an instant, transparent quote for your audit.
Tax planning services for businesses and individuals
The best way to pay less tax is to plan ahead. And with the right tax planning services and advice from THP, you could keep more of your money to enjoy, invest, save or pass on.
Whether you need tax planning services for your business or your own finances, it’s important to take the long view. With the government cracking down on tax loopholes, the opportunities for saving tax require a more careful and considered approach.
Our Tax Planning Team makes sure you’re not exposed to risk. Instead, what you get is sound tax advice that is based on your individual circumstances and is compliant with both the letter and the spirit of the law.
Read on to learn more about our personal and business tax planning services, or get in touch now for an informal discussion.
Do you urgently need a grant audit to draw down project funds?
Most government and business funders insist on a financial report before they will release project funding. For example, every Innovate UK audit report has to be drawn up by an independent external auditor like THP Chartered Accountants.
So, if you want to get hold of your money quickly and with minimum hassle, talk to us today. We’re expert at producing Innovate UK audit reports and government business grant audits in double-quick time!
Did you know the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rules changed in April 2020?
If you sell a property – and it’s not your main home – you normally have to pay Capital Gains Tax on any gain you make. Before April, you would have had up to 22 months from the sale date to calculate, report and pay CGT to the taxman.
The new system is much more stressful. You now have to complete a CGT return and pay over the tax within 30 days. If you don’t, you could get hit with both penalties and interest.
Because HMRC wants you to pay quickly, it gives you precious little time to deal with the complex paperwork, let alone explore legitimate ways of reducing your tax bill.
But don’t worry – THP can help. We’ve created a new, super-fast CGT on Residential Property Service that not only makes sure you avoid penalties but can also help you cut your tax bill.
