The sooner we get data (invoices, expenses reports, bank statements, etc.) from you the better. It means that issues are fresh in your mind, there is no pressure to meet filing deadlines and there are better opportunities for tax planning.
Furthermore, the more you tell us about your background, the more tailored advice we can give you - with potential business efficiency and tax savings a result.
Once we have the information we need, the year end routines can usually be finished with a small number of emails and telephone calls. We prefer at least one visit but some clients don't even visit our premises and we conduct everything via email and Skype confcalls. But we do need an original signed document for our records.
