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!
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.
I needed some help getting my tax affairs in order. The AK Tax team sorted me out and then made everything easy going forward. Great service.
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,
