The retail sector has always been one of the most competitive business environments to operate in, and with the rapid growth of direct marketing, telephone sales, Internet trading, and overseas competition (especially from mainland Europe), more than ever retailers need sound financial advice and the support of a team of knowledgeable advisers who can help them maintain their market share.

We have considerable experience acting for the retail sector, and understand clearly clients' special requirements - especially the need for real-time, proactive advice on how to maintain and improve their position.

We can help you maximise your profitability through improvements in your stock control, purchase re-ordering and reconciliation procedures, and where appropriate, advise on the installation of computerised systems.

Perhaps the biggest bane of a retailer's life is the stringent demands of the VAT regime. We can relieve you of unnecessary expense by advising on the most appropriate scheme, and give you more time, by handling for you your VAT planning and administration.

Whether you are a small shopkeeper or a 'high street retailer', a mail order company or an Internet trader, our team of experienced advisers can work with you to achieve your business objectives.
