iXBRL and CaseWare

Bishop Fleming was one of the first top 40 UK accountancy firms to invest in some of the most sophisticated audit and accounting software around and have been working with CaseWare for more than 6 years. Our level of involvement in the design and development of the CaseWare programme itself has given Bishop Fleming unrivalled experience, which can be drawn upon should you need assistance in the preparation of your statutory accounts.

We can produce financial statements that provide you with meaningful insights and, as required by HMRC, your company accounts and Corporation Tax returns will be filed in the required XBRL electronic format.

We can also work with your current auditors to supply iXBRL tagging services, for more information please contact a member of the audit team (below).

Specialist Sectors

We also specialise in specific sectors including;

  • Manufacturing, technology & science
  • Media & creative industries
  • Property & construction
  • Charities & not for profit
  • Tourism & leisure
  • Healthcare and care homes

This specialist approach means we already have key insights and can easily identify how a business is performing, pin-point trends and spot opportunities or problems at an early stage. Our unique insight means we can anticipate the particular issues that your business or organization faces.

International Audits

Global communications and ease of travel means businesses are increasingly likely to have interests overseas – either buying and selling goods and services, or opening branches or offices in other countries. Our membership of Kreston International, one of the largest global networks of independent accounting firms, allows us to service multi-national groups to break down cultural barriers and take advantage of expert advice at a local level to fulfil overseas statutory requirements to help you with whatever international issues may arise.
