Brighten Jeffrey James are specialists in managing the financial and business affairs of a wide range of clients. Enabling you to concentrate on your careers whilst we handle the financial aspects of your life and finances.

We believe that accounting should be far more than just producing a set of accounts once a year. A proactive accountancy and business management service is the cornerstone of what we aim to deliver to our clients at all times.

The practice offers a complete accountancy service if required, or we would be happy to tailor our service to suit your individual needs.

Annual Accounts

Annual business accounts are, of course, very important as they are required by the taxation authorities and often requested by banks and other lenders. At BJJ, we are capable of producing annual accounts for virtually any type of business – sole trader, partnership, limited company and so on.

Bookkeeping & Management Accounts

The first step is to work with you so we can gain a full understanding of your business. We then tailor our approach to meet your requirements and provide the services you need.

Besides your bookkeeping, we can maintain your VAT records and even take on short-term projects to relieve temporary overloads.

A key part of our service is the preparation of Management Accounts. Regular management accounting information enables us and our client see the progress of the business, track revenue and costs and generally provide good indications of where a business can make changes for the better.

We do not believe that giving you a set of figures once a year is enough. We therefore encourage our clients to consider quarterly or monthly management accounts so as to be in the best possible position to react to business developments and economic changes etc.

For clients prefer to prepare the management accounts in-house and we are happy to assist in the set-up, maintenance or interpretation of whatever system they choose to use.

Discuss your requirements with us and we will provide you with tailored information and constructive advice and the benefit of our extensive experience on a regular basis.


If you’re running a limited company and your annual turnover exceeds £5.6 million and balance sheet total exceeds £2.8 million, then you are almost certainly required to conduct a statutory annual audit. This isn’t a matter of choice – it’s the law. Whilst we do not carry out statutory audits ourselves we can recommend or help you to select a suitable auditor.


We can provide a complete and confidential service to administer your payroll and deal with the continual growing complexity of taxation and the accompanying regime of penalties for non-compliance.

We have experienced staff providing a comprehensive service, covering:

Our Payroll service operates on a fixed fee basis depending upon the number of employees and the services and reports required etc.


Value added tax is one of the most complex and onerous tax regimes imposed on business – so complex that many businesses can 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 Customs and Excise, call for a trained professional eye to ensure that you know what your are doing and not creating more problems than you think you are solving! They will eventually act informally and effectively shut you down.

We provide an efficient cost effective VAT service, which includes:

Assistance with VAT registration

Advice on VAT planning and administration

Use of the most appropriate scheme

VAT control and reconciliation

Help with completing VAT returns

Planning to minimise future problems with Customs and Excise

Negotiating with Customs and Excise in disputes and representing you at VAT tribunals

We have experience in virtually all aspects of taxation. As with all of our services, we will be pleased to discuss your requirements at a free initial meeting with absolutely no obligation.
