    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.

    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!

FAQs

How do I switch accountants?

Finding the right accountant for your unique business needs is crucial. If you’re struggling with an accountant who isn’t taking the time to fully understand the nature of your business, offer advice where you need it, and provide consistent financial support, it might be time to consider a change.

Switching accountants might sound daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. At AK Tax, we have a streamlined process to guide you through the move with minimal disruption to your business. We start by helping you inform your current accountants, HMRC, and Companies House that you’re making the switch, getting the necessary permission that enables us to deal with your financial documentation. This includes a disengagement letter, outlining the details of the work your previous accountants have completed, along with the relevant dates relating to your accounts.

We will also ask for professional clearance from your previous accountants, before requesting that you assign authority over to AK Tax to manage your tax affairs and deal with HMRC. We’ll be there every step of the way to make the process as stress-free as possible.

What if I am starting a new business?

Setting up a new business doesn’t need to be stressful. When you work with AK Tax, our expert team will help you set up as a limited company with Companies House and guide you through the process of setting up a shiny new business bank account.
