Our Services

Overview

Looking after all your business functions can be a daunting affair when you do not have the size or budget to take on employees with specialist knowledge and experience.

Accounts and administration

Managing your company’s accounts and administration is about a lot more than just doing the bookkeeping and filing.

Operations support

The team at London Retail Services has many decades of combined hands-on experience and expertise in all types of operations for UK and foreign companies.

Human resources

Your company needs good, clear and legally-compliant employment policies, processes and procedures in order to manage your human resources properly and get the best from your people.

Pay and payroll

London Retail Services provides its clients with much more than they would receive when using a normal payroll bureau.

Health and safety systems

In many companies health and safety policies and procedures get forgotten or side-lined – until something happens.

Premises management

Retail and hospitality premises, fixtures and fittings all provide considerable challenges.

For all these business functions we also provide:

COMPLIANCE

Every company should obviously comply as fully as possible with its legal duties, behave in an ethical manner and act in accordance with best practice. But if you try to do this without comprehensive policies and systems in place you will not succeed.

SYSTEMS

We focus on your exact needs and then we implement streamlined and cost-effective systems for managing your business functions and providing you with the necessary reports and notifications.

We work with the following sectors:

We fully understand the complex requirements of all aspects of fast-moving businesses that deal with the public. You need swift, efficient, cost-effective and integrated accounts and administration, operations support, HR management, health and safety systems and premises maintenance.

We are also very aware of the specific challenges of looking after both the public and your employees in the retail environment in order to make sure that your premises are running efficiently, safely, legally and profitably.

As your payments are made by the public through various methods and payment providers, we know that your IT and software systems, administration, data protection and anti-fraud systems together with your accounts and record-keeping have particular needs related to the retail sector.
