About Beever and Struthers

Beever and Struthers is an award winning firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors with offices in Manchester, Blackburn and London.

We have a specialist Innovation, Communication and IT sector team to help hi-tech service delivery businesses stay ahead in a continuously changing business environment. Our clients are diverse in their areas of operation and include IT support and web hosting companies, design and marketing agencies, PR companies, engineering design and architect’s firms. In addition, we are also seeing new businesses with expertise in software development, data analytics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence which have mass appeal in an increasing number of business sectors.

A common thread throughout these businesses is generally the level of integration between their own internal management systems and third party platforms, and how advanced they are in adopting cloud solutions and storage. To assist clients with this infrastructure we offer tailored solutions built around our partnership with Xero.  Please click here to see the benefits of cloud accounting.

A significant number of our clients in this sector are innovating (without even knowing it!) not only in terms of products but in terms of processes and we have helped them claim millions of pounds in Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credits. We are extremely experienced in evaluating and presenting claims to HMRC. For more information on R&D Tax Credits, please click here.

We also provide assistance setting up tax efficient share ownership schemes including the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) for investors, and the Enterprise Management Incentive Scheme (EMI) for employees. Such schemes are important to businesses in the sector who often struggle to access traditional routes to finance and, in these uncertain times, face a challenge to retain talented staff members.

Our sector specialists engage with clients at a strategic level, not only providing first rate accounting services, but also helping them to improve business performance, boost cash flow and reduce tax liabilities.
