Puzzled by payroll? Bamboozled by bookkeeping? Terrified of Tax?

For many business owners, the one aspect of running their own business that gives them sleepless nights is ‘the books’ and especially reporting to HMRC. The simple solution is to hand over everything to Murray Taylor’s experienced team of accountants in Montrose, Arbroath and Dundee who will take the pain out of your business record keeping, keep everything in order and give you complete peace of mind – and a good night’s sleep!

Keeping Payroll and PAYE under control

Administering payroll is becoming increasingly burdensome for many businesses, taking more and more time and resources away from core business functions.

Fortunately, payroll can easily be separated from your other accounting activities and outsourced to a specialist agency such as our team of payroll professionals.

We offer a completely confidential and cost-effective service covering all areas of payroll and PAYE compliance including end of year forms P11D


Small and growing businesses invariably find that bookkeeping eats up valuable time and resources. That’s something we can help you with or even take over completely.

As experienced East of Scotland accountants, we begin by discussing your specific requirements with you, and then we set up appropriate accounting procedures and controls and ensure your accounts are kept fully up-to-date and in compliance with statutory regulations.

We are happy to work with Sage but also offer online accounting software which more and more clients like using.

Don’t fall foul of the VAT man

Value Added Tax is one of the most complex and onerous tax regimes imposed on business. It is so complex that many businesses inadvertently overpay or underpay VAT. The ever-widening scope of VAT, the constant stream of detailed changes to the regulations, and the ever growing demands of HM Revenue & Customs call for a trained professional eye to ensure that you don’t fall foul of the VAT man and do not pay HMRC more than you need to.

Murray Taylor provides an efficient and cost-effective VAT service, which includes:

  • Assistance with VAT registration
  • Advice on the most appropriate VAT schemes
  • VAT control and reconciliation
  • Help with completing VAT returns
  • Negotiating with HM Revenue & Customs in disputes

If these are the sort of services that you need for your business, we’d love to hear from you. For an informal, no-obligation chat about how we can help you and your business, contact us us or call now on 01674 672555
