Outsourced business services

Citroen Wells provides a selection of outsourced business services: we can help you with your VAT, payroll needs, bookkeeping requirements and your cloud accounting software. Find out more below.


Many clients leave the administration of their business to us in order to concentrate on the commercial aspects of their trade.

We have a dedicated, knowledgeable and responsive bookkeeping department which is expert in building strong relationships with our clients.

By instructing Citroen Wells you can focus on your business and leave us to write up your accounting records, prepare VAT returns, organise your payroll and produce monthly/annual accounts.

It's our job to get your books straight and keep them that way. We will collect all the receipts, bank statements and other papers, and make sure that they are filed correctly to meet the requirements of the HMRC and other relevant parties.

Cloud accounting

At Citroen Wells we ensure that we keep up to date with the latest developments in accounting technology.

That’s why we work with a number of cloud accounting packages including Xero, QuickBooks and Sage Online.

Cloud accounting services are the simple way of enabling software to be stored and accessed online. This way of accounting serves similar functions as accounting software that would be stored on your computer, but is hosted on remote servers.

Not only does it enable you or your employees to access essential data anytime, anywhere, the use of real time information also means that your data will always be up-to-date and current.

Our team would be happy to advise you on the best cloud accounting package to suit your needs, and we can even help to get your chosen system up and running.


If you employ staff, be it one person or several hundred across multiple sites, let us take the burden of administering your payroll, allowing you to get on with what you do best - running your business.

We ensure that your payroll complies with the latest relevant legislation, and you can relax in the knowledge that we will do all of the following for you:

  • Prepare payslips, customised to your business
  • Handle the administration of PAYE, national insurance, Statutory Sick Pay, Statutory Maternity Pay, etc.
  • Complete statutory forms, including year-end returns, to issue to your employees and to submit to HMRC
  • Create summaries and analyses of staff costs
  • Deal with the administration of incentive schemes, bonuses, and ex-gratia and termination payments
  • Handle the administration of pension schemes.

Many businesses unintentionally over or underpay Value Added Tax (VAT) as a result of its complexity.

The widening parameters of this burdensome tax and frequent changes made by HMRC often require the assistance of a professional to ensure that businesses comply with the relevant regulations.

At Citroen Wells we provide an efficient VAT service, which includes:

  • Assistance with VAT registration
  • Advice on VAT planning and administration
  • Use of the most appropriate scheme
  • VAT control and reconciliation
  • Help with completing VAT returns
  • Planning to minimise future problems with HMRC
  • Negotiating with HMRC in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals.
