Accountant for architects

Building a solid financial basis for you and your architectural firm will allow you to form a stable foundation and carry out your business with minimal worry.

Smith Butler can help you do just that. Our specialist accounting team for architects will support you through the industry challenges you face, while keeping you tax-efficient and help you maintain a healthy profit margin.

By helping you with your job costing and cash management, we’ll make sure you minimise your spend and maximise your income.

Why choose us as your accountants?

Cashflow management

To ensure you maximise your profitability, we will help you prepare cashflow forecasts based on your current income and expenditure. By looking at your current costs, we will help you see if there are any areas where you could tighten your spending while maintaining the level of your service.

In doing so, we can help you identify times where you may have some spare capital which you could reinvest in your business, helping it to grow and thrive.

Cashflow management is also a useful service in case you run into any unexpected pitfalls. This means you’ll have a safety net to help you through any challenges you may face.

Job costing and planning

Job costing and planning is an important process so you can identify how much a contracted job is going to cost before you start. Our accounting team will sit down and run the numbers with you, ensuring you don’t overspend and lessen your pay once your future job is complete.

Payroll solutions

Our team will carry out your payroll systems, ensuring your staff are paid correctly and on time. Any deductions needing to be made will be considered, as well as any further compliance within IR35 rules for contractors.

If you have a workplace pension, we can enrol any team members and make sure their contributions are kept safe.

R&D tax credits

Architects looking to innovate within their field may be able to take advantage of reclaiming some of their work costs through research and development tax credits.

The Government offers these tax credits to support businesses striving to push the boundaries of their field. With our help, you’ll be able to apply for these credits and see a return on the money you’ve invested into your work.

Focus on your work, not the numbers

Architecture is a creative but demanding industry. Instead of worrying about your books, let us do that for you. Smith Butler will allow you to focus on the more pressing matters of your business and manage the behind-the-scenes work of your accounts.

Let’s make sure your foundations are strong
