  • 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.

    Paul Morris Avatar Paul Morris

FAQ

How do I switch accountants?

Finding the right accountant for you is crucial to seeing business growth. If you’re finding yourself increasingly frustrated with your accountant, kept in the dark, or like you’re not getting proper value for your money, it might be time to consider a switch.

Changing accountants doesn’t have to be a headache. At AK Tax, we support you every step of the way, starting by informing your current accountants, HMRC, and Companies House of your decision to move so we can get assigned permission to deal with your documentation. This will include a disengagement letter from your ex-accountants with all the details we need, as well as professional clearance. We’ll also get assigned authority from your business that allows us to manage your tax affairs and deal with HMRC for you.

What if I am starting a new business?

If you’re just starting out as a new business, congratulations! We’ll get you set up as a limited company with Companies House, and support you with opening a shiny new business bank account for all of your financial activity to go through.
