What is SKS Business Services?

SKS Business Services was founded in 2008 in Twickenham, southeast of London. SKS employs a small but experienced team of accountants with a history of working in prominent multinational firms such as GlaxoSmithKline, BP, KPMG and Lonmin PLC. SKS Business Services specialise in providing high-quality and thorough service to small and medium-sized businesses in Britain, with a small branch in Canada recently opening its doors.

SKS Business Services has also recently won the prestigious Best Finance & Accounts Outsourcing Team award from the National Outsourcing Association, beating out the huge French management consulting and outsourcing company Capgemini.

As a company that offers high quality, personalised services that punches well above its weight, SKS Business Services is the kind of company that would benefit tremendously from increased client interaction, and gaining a foothold in the nascent Accountants App market that only started a couple of years ago. Thankfully, they have an App for that.

Finance Calculators and Tax Tables at your disposal

This App offers 17 specialised calculators to assist you in any financial needs you may have. These calculators will display a monthly/annual invoice total for a number of financial matters, including:
 

  • VAT
  • APR
  • Stamp Duty
  • Loans
  • Inheritance Tax
  • Mortgage
  • Savings
  • Company Car
  • Contractor
  • Dividend Vs Salary
  • Pay slip
  • Corporation Tax
  • Income Tax
  • Inflation
  • Should I Incorporate
  • Increased Profit
  • Capital Gains Tax

The SKS Business Services App also provides a list of frequently updated Tax Tables, for those wondering how certain taxes will affect you and informing you on how to optimise your tax returns. From Income Tax to VAT to Corporation Tax to Capital Gains tax, all this and more are available in this App. The SKS Business Services App also provides a complete description of the quarterly government budget almost immediately after announcement, as well as past budgets. The SKS Business Services App will also inform you of any big financial dates and events that will occur in future, such as when tax returns are due and PAYE Settlements that must be paid.

Track your mileage and income on the Accountants App

Are your clients frustrated with losing hundreds of old receipts and missing out on expense claims? The SKS Business Services Receipt Manager will allow your clients to upload pictures of their receipts to your phone and give a short description of what they are. HMRC will accept your electronic receipts provided that you give a sufficient description of what they are for – This is exactly what your App will achieve in just a few seconds.

Your clients may have to make journeys as part of their business, and keeping track of your mileage with pen & paper is time consuming and confusing. SKS Business Services’ Mileage Tracker will record your travels for you and collate it all into a single App, which can be easily emailed.

Your clients may have multiple sources of income and struggle to keep track of it, or compare total income to expenditure. The SKS Business Services Income Tracker allows you to input all your different forms of income into one place and track it next to total expenditure.

SKS Business Services’ new App has been designed by the MyFirmsApp team to provide the most desired features of their clients. For starters, you can contact the SKS Business Services team directly through your App during working hours, visit their website, read an in-depth team biography to get a good idea of who they are, and read the London-based accountancy firm’s blog for valuable insight into the latest relevant news. It can also incorporate the latest accounting and tax news on the go, provided you have an internet connection. The news section will be updated by the MyFirmsApp team whenever necessary, so you don’t have to do anything.

Push Notifications: A truly effective method of client communication

The SKS Business Services App is also designed to support Push Notifications, an innovative new way of gaining the interest of clients in a method that doesn’t feel as irritating and time consuming as email shots. While email shots tend to get ignored by the vast majority of clients and very few of them actually read it, push notifications are short enough that nearly all of them will read them and 4 to 5 times the amount of users will respond to them in comparison to email shots, directing them straight to whatever you advertised.

SKS Business Services’ App will make their firm stand out, bring their systems together and help them communicate more effectively with clients than ever before, all on one compact and versatile solution.
