What Our Clients Say

  • Amazing company to be with, always have time for you and deal with things straight away. I can't recommend AK enough, Andy and the team have made my life so much more simple.

    James Henderson Avatar James Henderson

    We pass many high-value transactions through our property companies, and AK Tax & Accountancy have always helped us to get things sorted out. We have also been able to move onto Xero software which has made the bookkeeping so much easier. We have been with this company for a number of years and I have no hesitation in writing this strong review. A good company to work with!

    Medfab Ltd have been working with Andy for 2 years now, the service and expertise is 2nd to none. I have had other accountants in the past that came highly recommended but are nowhere in the slightest to the calibre you receive fr AK Tax and accountancy. regards Kevin Harris Medfab ltd Managing Director,

  • I was looking for a firm of accountants who use Xero as I needed all the facilities it offers. Andy at AK Tax is a great guy and he made the whole process really simple. I really like the fixed fee packages as it means I know what my outgoings are each month. Even though they're based in Kent working with my accountant online is easy and I'm always up-to-date with how the business is performing.

    stephen Nichols Avatar stephen Nichols

    After sitting with several accountants I engaged with Andy & AK Tax and Accountancy to help start our company and look after the accounts. I found Andy to have a welcoming and approachable demeanour which was strengthened by the professional service we received from him and his staff. A professional and reliable service for a reasonable price. If you're in the market for a new accountancy firm or just starting out with your business, then give these guys a call.

Expert Chatham Accountants

Situated within the county of Kent, Chatham is a major tourist town that sees plenty of visitors flock to the Chatham Dockyard each year to get a glimpse of the 19th-century forts and major naval buildings, alongside the Chatham Historic Dockyard museum containing the HMS Ocelot submarine.

The town is the administrative quarters of the Medway unitary authority, with important road links and major railway and bus stations operating as the main interchanges for Chatham and the surrounding areas, giving local businesses excellent access to a diverse talent pool and flexible employees. The strong economy in Chatham sees people from all over the province drawn to the area, benefiting from the unique opportunities, affordable commercial real estate, and access to funding and business grants that the town offers. As a rural area, Chatham’s most affluent industries are agriculture and agri-food, with the food processing sector also contributing a significant amount to the Kentish economy.

FAQs

How do I switch accountants?

Finding an accountant that’s right for you can be crucial to the success of your business. If you’re finding yourself increasingly frustrated with your current accountant, constantly left in the dark, or feeling like you’re not really getting value for money, it might be time to consider a change.

At AK Tax, we have a process in place to make switching accountants streamlined and stress-free, with minimal disruption to your business. We’ll help you inform your current accountants, HMRC, and Companies House of your decision, making sure we are assigned permission to deal with your documentation. We will also ask your existing accountant for professional clearance, as well as a disengagement letter outlining the details of the work they have completed along with the key dates relating to your accounts. We will then request that you sign authority over to AK Tax to manage your tax affairs and deal with HMRC.

What if I am starting a new business?

At AK Tax, we have an accountancy package specifically designed for new startups, with an on-hand team ready to help you set up as a limited company with Companies House and guide you through the process of setting up a new business bank account for all of your company’s financial activity.
