Mubasher Ali

We focus on providing proactive rather than reactive advice, becoming a trusted advisor to the business.

Having initially trained at a 3 partner firm in North London, I can’t quite believe I have clocked up nearly twenty years of experience in the accountancy profession and over that time have built a wealth of commercial experience in advising a wide array of clients on general business, accounting and taxation issues, specialising in audit. After an aggressive career path, culminating in holding senior positions at a leading Top 10 Accountancy firm and other established independent firms in the city, I developed as an all- round general practitioner, and co-founded Richmond Gatehouse with a clear vision of redefining the accountancy sector, and bringing a high quality accountancy practice to market.

The team and client base continues to expand, and I thoroughly enjoy my role as a business advisor to a variety of companies and individuals ranging from owner managed businesses to large corporate structures with international subsidiaries. I develop a detailed understanding of my clients businesses to spot the tax and business efficiency issues, and provide relevant and timely advice that assist the owner managers in their decision making process.

The business sectors where my expertise has the most depth are construction, property, food and drink, and the medical sector.

Away from the excitement of growing the business, I live in Essex with my wife and children. I enjoy my football and cricket, and the gym. Following a sustained period of rigorous training, I completed my first 12K obstacle race in 2014, and I am now in training for the Tough Mudder in 2015.

Our Services

Core Services

Statutory Compliance

Preparation of Statutory Accounts is at the heart of our scope of services. Whether it is from the Company's source documents or their in-house trial balance, we will prepare and submit at Companies House.

Corporation Tax

We will work with our clients to ensure their Corporation Tax strategy is at its most efficient. From complex group structuring to capital allowance maximisation, we will ensure our clients are not paying more than absolutely necessary.

VAT

Preparation and submission of VAT returns. Fundamentally we will advise from the bottom up; Is VAT something you need to be concerned with? What is your applicable VAT rate? Moving on from that we also specialise in advising on beneficial VAT schemes e.g. flat-rate, Group VAT registrations and Property VAT.

Payroll

We pride ourselves on providing a seamless outsourced Payroll service for our clients. This includes: assistance with timesheet design, calculation of employee and employer liabilities, production and delivery of (customised) Payslips & Real-Time (RTI) compliance.
