    thumb MSC Accountancy

    review rating 5  AK Tax are a fantastic company that I wish we'd found years ago. As a small business, we do the reconciling and basic things ourselves, so it's really helpful to have a low cost accountant to check things over and answer any questions we've got. Really good service and value!

Expert Kent Accountant

Kent as a county combines breathtaking views, historic sites of interest and easy access 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 its 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 its 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 Cuxton to the coastal towns of Dover and Folkestone.


How do I switch accountants?

Choosing the right accountant for your business is important. Using an accountant that isn’t right for you and your business can be frustrating. If your existing accountant doesn’t understand the nature of your business, doesn’t keep you up to date with things you need to be aware of or you don’t feel like you are getting value for money, then it is time to change your accountant. 

Whatever your reasons for switching your accountant, it doesn’t need to be hard. If you are looking for an accountancy firm who takes time to understand the needs of you and your business, we are here to help. The team at AK Tax will guide you through the process of moving your accounting with minimal disruption to your business. 

We’ll help you inform your current accountants, HMRC and Companies House that you are moving and assign us permission to deal with your documentation. This includes a disengagement letter with details of the work they have completed along with the key dates relating to your accounts. We will contact your existing accountant and ask for professional clearance. We then ask you to assign authority to AK Tax to manage your tax affairs and deal with HMRC.
