For Buy-to-Let Landlords and Property Owners
Whether you’re about to take your first plunge into property investment or you already have a burgeoning portfolio in place, Gorilla Accounting can help you to successfully manage your buy to let finances.
Our property accountants have combined our straightforward approach to accounting with a simple, transparent pricing structure to ensure that landlords can easily overcome the common financial hurdles of tax management and company incorporation within this sector.
On top of our buy to let clients receiving our full range of accountancy services, our accountants for landlords will oversee the smooth running of your monthly revenue activity whilst delivering a free financial health check on your property investments.
We’ll also provide you with capital gains tax advice as well as a free finance mortgage review.

Who Exactly Are Our Clients?
At Gorilla Accounting, we work with both residential and commercial landlords and, as property accountants, we help people with a variety of portfolio sizes. Not only do we provide different prices depending on how many properties you own, but we also tailor our services to your specific needs.
Whether you only have one property or own several and are looking to keep investing money in real estate, you can benefit from our accounting packages.
As buy-to-let accountants, we often work with individuals who own between 10 to 15 residential properties, but this doesn’t mean we can’t help if your portfolio is smaller or bigger than this. Our expert team of landlord accountants have a lot of experience managing accounts of all sizes, so let us know if you receive enough rental income to make a profit, as you will have to declare it to HMRC.
We’re also on hand to help if you’d like to buy property and develop it into rental accommodation – we’ll take care of all tax and accounting requirements and ensure that you’re submitting the correct documentation to the government, as well as paying the right amount of tax.
Of course, we’ll ensure you stay compliant with legislation that affects you as well, such as Making Tax Digital and Capital Gains Tax.
Many of our clients don’t deal in residential real estate, opting instead to invest in commercial properties. If this is your situation, you can be confident that we can help you manage your portfolio just as efficiently.
So, if you own a single shop, for example, and have bought another building as a new opportunity, let us know – Gorilla Accounting can easily help you stay on top of your finances so that you’re always compliant with HMRC rules.
We can also advise on the best way to set up your business – for instance, whether sole trading or setting up a limited company is better for your venture – and you can rest assured that you’re getting the best advice as part of the accounting service you receive.
How We Can Help
There are many things to consider when you’re a landlord, which can quickly become overwhelming even if you already have an existing portfolio.
The day-to-day running of your business can take up a lot of your time, so the last thing you want is to have to focus on managing your accounts on top of that – not to mention how daunting it can be to ensure all your documentation and tax returns are correct when submitting to HMRC.
This is where we come in. As accountants for buy-to-let landlords and property development accountants, we can support and advise on every single move if you so wish.
For example, you’ll want to decide which of your properties is your main residence if you own more than one home, and you must also handle the sale of any property correctly, which means taking tax into account too.
If you’ve invested in property to rent it out, you must pay income tax, and Making Tax Digital may soon impact you as well. All of this and more needs to be carefully considered to ensure compliance.
Gorilla Accounting will provide you with the advice you need regarding property, whether you’re thinking of buying more, disposing of an existing house or expanding into another store.
What is Included in Your Fee?
Not only do we keep prices low (and dependent on the number of properties you own), but we also offer a comprehensive range of services designed to make your life easier.
There are several things included in our pricing, such as:
Our FreeAgent accounting software is secure, user-friendly and can be accessed from any device, from your mobile to your computer.
As contractor accountants, our knowledge and expertise allow us to provide advice that helps you maximise the tax efficiency of your business.
We can help you to prepare and submit all of your financial paperwork accurately and on time.
Limited company owners must submit a corporation tax return, which we can help with – we also ensure that all information on the return is accurate.
If you require it, we can also help with your VAT returns; you don’t have to register for VAT if your annual VAT taxable turnover is under £85,000, but you may register voluntarily if you wish.
As your business grows, you’re likely to hire staff to help. It can be challenging having to deal with payroll when you never did before, but this is where Gorilla Accounting comes in. As part of your fee, we can help you prepare and submit payroll for up to 2 employees.
We can also help with your P11d form, which details expenses and benefits paid to company directors and staff, but which haven’t been subject to PAYE.
For some who are just starting out in the buy-to-let industry, choosing a sole trader model is preferrable at first because it allows them to figure out whether they want to continue down that path. If you’ve also opted to become a sole trader, you have to submit a self-assessment tax return to HMRC, which we can help you with. We’ll make sure all information is pertinent, correct and sent in a timely manner.
You can benefit from standard references as well if you’re looking to hire employees and wish to find out more about them from their ex-employers. This can put your mind at ease and help you to find the right staff for your business.
HMRC may check on how you keep your records; if they decide to do this, you will usually be contacted by letter. It’s important that you keep records accurately in order to submit your tax returns correctly and pay the right amount of tax to avoid issues. If you’ve been contacted for a records check, we can help ensure that your paperwork is in order.
You’re busy running your buy-to-let business, so it’s perfectly normal that you may not recall when to submit a specific document or the deadline for an important return. We can stay on top of this for you, so you only have to focus on your day-to-day operations.
Limited companies have to file confirmation statements once a year, at least. Gorilla Accounting can assist by ensuring the information about your company is up to date and by preparing the statements for you.
It can be time-consuming to deal with share issues, as well as transfers and changes of particulars, especially if you’ve never done it before, so you can count on us to handle it for you.
As the owner of your limited company, you’re entitled to draw dividends from your business. When companies distribute dividends, they need to produce board meeting minutes as well – if you’re unsure about what to do, we can help.
Because we understand that you’re busy and, sometimes, need a quick answer to an urgent question, we guarantee a same-day reply if you contact us before 3pm. This will help you to make business decisions faster as well, as you won’t have to wait days to get your information.
Each business is unique and has its specific requirements, which is why we offer our clients their very own dedicated accountant. They will know everything there is to know about your financial circumstances and buy-to-let business and will always give you specialist advice.
With our simple and straightforward talk, as well as our ability to be there for you when you need it, you don’t have to worry about a thing.
When you become a client, you can contact us anytime you want and at your convenience, be it via face-to-face meetings, emails, telephone and Skype videoconferencing.
At Gorilla Accounting, we’re big advocates of making technology work for ourselves and our customers. As well as investing heavily in our own internal systems, we’ve partnered with FreeAgent to offer their market leading accountancy software to our clients as part of our all-inclusive accountancy package.
Compatible with key devices, you’ll be able to quickly and easily track monthly revenues to and from your business bank accounts whilst receiving regular alerts for upcoming tax deadlines and bill payments.
There’s nothing worse than having an urgent financial query regarding your property business, only to get caught up in lengthy e-mail turnaround times, a bottomless pit of FAQs or generic contact forms.
Whilst we embrace technology to the fullest degree, this doesn’t mean that we shun the huge benefits of face to face, telephone and e-mail interaction.
At Gorilla Accounting, we take a holistic approach to client management by allocating each of our customers a personal accountant who you’ll work with throughout your time with us. They’ll quickly become familiar with the unique financial circumstances of your buy to let business.
As well as having a direct dial contact telephone number and e-mail address, you’ll also be able to arrange face to face meetings via Skype, or in person for a more personalised service.
What’s more is that all of this unlimited support is included as part of your monthly fee, ensuring that you’ll never be stung by hidden charges or additional hourly fees.
