    abacus St Helens - the Tax and Accounting experts

    Real-life business solutions in an ever changing world

    No two clients needs are the same. That is why we at abacus tailor our wide range of services and experience to meet the needs of each individual client. It is our objective to provide our clients with a service they believe gives them value for money.

    abacus offer a new approach to finance to small and medium sized businesses by employing Chartered Management Accountants. Management accountants typically qualify whilst working as in-house accountants for larger businesses - often being responsible for the statutory requirements of those businesses (e.g. year-end accounts, VAT returns), whilst also using their skills to add value to the business (for example by identifying poor financial performance, and making changes to put this right).

    In most cases the small or medium sized business uses an accountant to ensure that they are meeting their obligations - no more, no less. However, whilst abacus will be happy to provide such a service, we believe that by bringing our experiences of working in real businesses to the SME marketplace, we can add real value to your business.

    The accountancy services we offer can be split into two distinct categories:-

    Compliance Services

      • Year-end accounts for sole traders and partnerships
      • Statutory accounts for limited companies and LLP’s
      • Tax return preparation
      • VAT returns
      • Payroll services
      • Added-value Services
      • Bookkeeping services

    Added-value Services

      • Periodic management accounts
      • Budgeting
      • Business planning
      • Start-up advice
      • Tax planning
      • Accountancy software

    In addition to the above, we are able to offer a range of other business services (such as debt collection, health and safety advice and HR advice) and independent financial advice through the abacus network.

    About Us

    Glyn Tickle, abacus 195, Newton-le-Willows, Prescot, St. Helens, Warrington, WidnesGlyn Tickle heads up the St Helens/Warrington abacus operation. Glyn qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant in 2000, and recently became a practising certificate holder. Prior to setting up the abacus operation in this area, Glyn held a number of accounting positions of increasing responsibility within local businesses. Whilst these businesses were much larger than the typical SME, Glyn is a firm believer that the financial controls and procedures used in these businesses can be adapted to the benefit of the SME’s that abacus serves.

    Glyn is assisted by Norman Allen. Norman is responsible for the bookkeeping and payroll activities, and has decades of experience of working for blue-chip companies.
