Thousands of businesses in the UK face an uncertain future as their finances are to be upturned by rising business rates, but none more so than those operating in the UK’s capital city. Although the results of the recent revaluation were announced last October, they won’t come into effect until next April but even now businesses in London must prepare to pay, what is estimated at, an extra £4billion in extra tax the next five years. Pearl Scan, a London based document scanning company, gives advice to these central businesses, offering a solution for companies looking for new ways to save costs.
While ‘document digitisation’ and ‘paperless office’ may seem like buzzwords to many professionals, making the move to paperless and embracing the technological evolution within the world of work could bring with it a wide range of benefits, saving money in both direct and indirect means. Pearl Scan offers document scanning in central London and throughout the capital city, helping hundreds of clients to keep costs down using the innovative method, softening the blow of the imminent rising business rates.
Naveed Ashraf, Managing Director at Pearl Scan says “Some businesses are resorting to measures such as raising their prices for their customers to cope with the hike in tax but there are other, simple ways to keep costs down to cope with the recent revaluation. Implementing document scanning can save money by reducing the need to pay for file storage facilities and resources such as paper and ink on a regular basis. What’s more, productivity is greatly improved and margin for expensive errors such as misplacing or damaging important documents is removed, bringing further financial gain.”
Pearl Scan has been revolutionising offices with its renowned document scanning service since 2003, becoming an industry leader in this increasingly relevant field. With expert staff and the latest equipment and technology, it has the capabilities to cope with digitisation projects from a wide range of sectors. Everything from invoices to microfiche can be scanned by Pearl Scan, presented to its clients in a digital format via a text searchable, cloud based image hosting platform.
Offering competitive rates and a variety of packages to suit all sizes and requirements, a tailored document scanning service is a worthwhile investment for any London based business during these uncertain times.
