Accountants in Medway Kent making YOUR Business Work for YOU

If you’re a business owner, your business is the key to getting where you want to go in life.  What do you want?  That dream house?  A new car?  Financial security for the future?  Time with the family?  A well-run and growing business can help you achieve your goals.

That’s where we come in.  We’re accountants and tax advisors for small businesses, based in Medway, Kent but working for clients nationwide.

We’re committed to making your business work for you.  So that it’s not a problem (and a business going badly can quickly become a nightmare) but an enjoyable and successful experience.

We don’t just deal with your accounts and tax (looking backwards) – we look forwards and help you with planning your future and giving you the right financial information to help you get there.

Business advisory services and plans

Everyone’s different, so we’ve got a range of accountancy support plans for you to pick from.  We can create a plan just for you if you like, but most people find that one of these suits them down to the ground.

Once we’ve worked out what you need and what’s best for you, prices are fixed and paid in affordable monthly direct debits.

Are you a landlord or property developer?

Although we work with a wide range of businesses, we do have a specialist knowledge in dealing with accounting and tax for those working in the property sector.

Whether you’re a landlord or a developer, you’re going to run up against a whole range of tax issues that apply to your property transactions.  And with those transactions running into the hundreds of thousands of pounds, making a slip-up with your tax planning can cost you very dearly indeed.  VAT, income tax and corporation tax all hold a number of dangers that can trip up the unwary property businessperson.

As always, the best tax planning is done in advance.  So we’d like to sit down with you, talk over your plans, and put together a personalised property strategy that is going to work for you in the short and the long-term.  You work hard, so it’s worth devoting a few hours to making sure that the profits you’ve created stay in your pockets as much as possible.

How does AK Tax & Accountancy work?

We believe in putting you, our client, first.  And we’re not just content to do the basics and call it job done – we have a mission to help you get to where you want to get in life.  We all have dreams and ambitions, and a successful business can be the key to making those dreams come true.

We have an office in the Medway City Estate with plenty of free parking, but we’re also happy to come out to meet you at your premises if that’s easier for you.  (Having said that, because we know how many distractions hit business owners from all angles throughout the day, we recommend coming to the office so you can get away from the slings and arrows for a while and take some time out to think about your business.)

Of course, not all our clients are local, and our investment in technology makes us online accountants, meaning that distance is no longer a barrier.  We can communicate and share information securely with you wherever you happen to be.

We’re massive fans of cloud-based accounting solutions and are specialist Xero accountants, however, we recognise that not everyone works this way (at the moment – let’s see if we can persuade you otherwise….) and we’ll do our best to work around whatever your systems happen to be.

As a practice, we’re members of the Institute for Financial Accountants and the Certified Public Accountants Association, so you can rest easy knowing we’re well-regulated, up to date with new developments, and carry full insurance.

Why we love living and working in Medway and Kent

Medway, for all its faults (and let’s be honest: it definitely has some) is turning into a great place to do business.  The road and rail networks make getting up to London or heading off to other parts of the country relatively easy.

Add to that the high streets and business estates, with the resources and expertise that they bring together, and Medway has got a good thing going on.  On top of all that, there’s the castle, cathedral, dockyard and many other attractions bringing tourists to the area and generally making it a pleasant and interesting place to be.

On a wider perspective Kent as a county combines breath-taking views, historic sites of interest and a nearness to London and the continent.  Not only a great place to do business, but a great area of the country to live in.

Famed for it’s White Cliffs of Dover and Canterbury Cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Kent is the gateway to Europe for the UK. With a rich history stretching back many thousands of years Kent, also known as the “Garden of England”, benefits from it’s proximity to London and enjoys a growing and vibrant economy.

Kent has a real mix of industries, from the heavily industrialised North at Northfleet and Cluxton to the coastal towns of Dover and Folkestone.
