Solutions for success focused on transport & logistics businesses

In today’s dynamic landscape, entrepreneurs in the transport and logistics sector encounter many challenges that demand adept management for sustainable success where efficiency is key. With slim profit margins, fierce competition, persistent driver shortages and escalating operational costs, businesses face considerable obstacles in turning a profit. Every aspect of the operation must be finely tuned to ensure timely deliveries, optimal resource utilisation and regulatory compliance.

In this environment the role of an adept accountant becomes indispensable. At Everett King, we offer tailored solutions to industry-specific challenges, drawing upon our extensive expertise in areas such as payroll solutions (including benefits and overtime allowances), VAT complexities, strategic business planning and comprehensive tax advice.

By offering specialised accounting services tailored to the unique needs of the transport and logistics sector, we can significantly enhance the financial well-being and operational efficiency of businesses within this industry.

Limited Company Setup:

Establishing a limited company is a crucial step for businesses in the transport and logistics sector, providing legal protection and tax advantages. We can guide entrepreneurs through the intricacies of company formation, ensuring compliance with relevant regulations and optimising the structure for maximum operational and tax efficiency. By selecting the appropriate legal entity and crafting a solid foundation, the stage is set for sustainable growth and profitability.


Accurate and up-to-date financial records are the backbone of any successful business. In the transport and logistics sector, where transactions are frequent and diverse, meticulous bookkeeping is even more critical. Our experienced team of bookkeepers will streamline the process, track expenses, manage invoices and reconcile accounts with precision. By maintaining clear financial records, you can then make informed decisions, identify cost-saving opportunities and demonstrate financial integrity to stakeholders.

VAT Returns:

Navigating Value Added Tax (VAT) regulations can be challenging, particularly for businesses operating across borders or engaging in complex supply chains. We possess the expertise to manage VAT obligations effectively and will ensure timely submission of VAT returns, optimise VAT recovery processes and can advise on VAT implications for international transactions. By mitigating compliance risks and maximising VAT efficiency we can help your business minimise tax liabilities and preserve cash flow.

Payroll Management:

In the transport and logistics sector, where personnel often work irregular hours and receive various allowances and bonuses, payroll processing can become intricate. Our payroll bureau offer comprehensive payroll services including calculating wages accurately, processing deductions and managing statutory payments such as National Insurance contributions and pension schemes. Take away the stress by outsourcing your payroll function allowing you to focus on core activities.

Annual Accounts:

Preparing annual accounts is not merely a regulatory obligation but an opportunity to assess financial performance and strategise for the future.  We have specialisation in the transport and logistics sector which goes beyond compliance.  We provide valuable insights into profitability, cash flow management and investment opportunities, empowering businesses to make informed decisions and adapt to market dynamics proactively. Through transparent and insightful annual accounts we facilitate stakeholder communication and foster trust in the business’s financial health.
