WHY USE AN OUTSOURCED TRAVEL ACCOUNTING SERVICE ?

Many professionals in the travel industry, like independent travel advisors and tour operators, are worried that their accountant doesn’t understand the complexities of the accounting requirements for their sector. Turning this on its head, many accountants do not know or simply avoid the accountancy intricacies of the travel industry.
 
While most small businesses find that outsourcing their accounting needs is more cost-efficient, outsourcing their accounting services actually becomes an imperative for businesses in the travel sector because of the difficulties they encounter in staying compliant with the different authorities that regulate their sector, like CAA.
 
There is no need to put together a full-fledged in-house accounting team. You won’t need to go through the costs of advertising the various accounting positions, going through interviews and selection of candidates, training the new employees and running the risk of doing this all over again once they find a position that they feel suits them better.
 
An accountancy practice that specialises in travel businesses also has a much deeper understanding of travel professionals ambitions, dreams, potential and capabilities. You get personalised bespoke help with your numbers, gaining back the time and energy to run your travel business more efficiently. You get help to increase your output by allowing you to focus on what you reallly know how to do, and of course you can rest assured that you are always on the good side of HMRC.
 
LAS Accounting Ltd specialises in small and medium size travel businesses and offers you the personal touch of a local business who understands the struggles as well as aspirations of the local community.
 

WHAT IS OUTSOURCED ACCOUNTING ?​

Outsourced accounting is when you hire an accounting practice to take care of your accounting needs.

Since they work with several small businesses like yours, their level of expertise increases exponentially as compared to an in-house team whose perspective is always limited.

LAS Accounting offers you bespoke outsourced accounting services from bookkeeping to taxes, payroll, VAT and advisory (cashflow forecasting and management accounts). You are covered with respect to all your accounting needs.

As a Small Business Accountancy practice we help:

Sole traders: tour operators, independent travel advisors

Limited companies: service businesses, travel agencies, hospitality industry, hoteliers

If you don’t see your business listed above, don’t worry, just pop us an e-mail and we’d be glad to find out about your business and your accounting needs.

Client Testimonials

Laura helped me with my self-assessment tax return. I had a different accountant who was disappointing, so I didn't know what to expect with Las Accounting Ltd. However Laura has been fantastic. She is very organised, with consistent reminders of upcoming deadlines. I fully recommend her.
