Head Office/

For business purposes, a financial statement consists of all the relevant financial information, presented in a structured manner and in a form easy to understand. Financial Statements always include a statement of financial position, statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows. For large corporations, these statements are often complex and may include an extensive set of notes to the financial statements and an explanation of financial policies and management discussion and analysis.


The preparation of financial statements is one of the final steps in the accounting cycle, which can help to measure the success of business operations over a period of time. Financial reporting is focused on providing entities with useful financial information about a company. For business partners, managers, prospective investors and lenders, the preparation of the financial statement is vital as it is often used to assist them to facilitate future economic decisions and evaluate the financial condition of the company. The utmost care and attention should be taken to ensure that all information in the financial statements is reliable and presented in a concise and structured manner. If ill-prepared with incorrect information or incoherently published, the financial statement could affect investors’ trust and consequently impact the funding of that business or impact the investors themselves who are crucial to the economic system. Bankers, suppliers or investors may also request statements and use the financial information to create different ratios.

This is particularly important in the UK market, which is characterised by constantly evolving laws and complex regulations.

Many businesses in the UK have gained benefits from outsourcing the Finance Manager function of their business. The financial activities of a firm are among the most complex and important activities in the business operation. It follows, therefore, that a Finance Manager ensures all the requisite financial activities are performed to ensure survival, profitability and growth of the enterprise. Applying general management practices to financial resources is known as Financial Management. It is paramount for the Finance Manager to remain level-headed to ensure monetary funds are allocated and utilised in the most efficient manner.  There are four main roles that a Financial Manager must perform:

1.Raising of Funds 2.Allocation of Funds 3.Profit Planning 4.Understanding business process

CAP can provide accurate accounting data to the Finance Manager, in order for them to aid them in making the best decisions for the future of the enterprise. Furthermore, by providing key information about specific factors effecting the profitability and financial situation of an enterprise, target areas for action are made obvious to the Finance Manager. Through years of experience, CAP has acquired knowledge in a wide array of methods in corporate financing and therefore can tailor financing strategies individually to each company’s needs, ensuring the business operates efficiently.

Business Services

Registration &

Corporate establishment in the UK is common for three main business structures. This includes; Private limited company, UK establishment of overseas companies and charitable company. CAP provides company registration and maintenance services.

Incorporation of private limited company

Incorporation is the process by which a new or existing business registers as a limited company. A company is a legal entity with a separate identity from those who own or run it. The vast majority of companies are limited liability companies where the liability of the members is limited by shares or by guarantee.

It may be worthwhile seeking professional advice from a solicitor or accountant before deciding whether an incorporated company is the best way for you to run your business.

Limited company has 100% of shares owned by shareholders with limited liability, offshore or holding companies. Capital requirements in the UK is relatively generous which starts from £0.01 per share. Benefits are being eligible to become employer in the UK, invoicing to customers and raise investment as a private limited company.


UK establishment is the phrase used in the Overseas Companies Regulations 2009 to refer to a place of business or branch of an overseas company in the UK. The use of UK establishment in the law has ended the different registration and disclosure regimes for places of business and branches that were in place before 1 October 2009. All places of business and branches registered before 1 October 2009 have become UK establishments and given a ‘BR’ prefix to their registered number. If you were a branch or place of business before 1 October 2009 you may need to file a Transitional Return form (OS TN01) to ensure Companies House holds the correct information for your UK establishment.

You may register an overseas company using its corporate name (its name under the law of the country of incorporation), or an alternative name under which it proposes to carry on business in the UK. If an alternative name is registered it is treated for UK legal purposes as a company’s corporate name and must be used on any forms that ask for the ‘company name’. There are a number of controls and restrictions which apply to your choice of company name. These are explained more fully in our ‘Incorporation and Names guide’.
