What Our Clients Say

  • 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!

    Perry Coppen Avatar Perry Coppen

    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

    Excellent relationships on a B2B level - handles our filings and queries with ease taking time to explain which is a rarity today. A vital part of my business model, and a valuable person to know.

    MSC Accountancy Avatar MSC Accountancy
  • 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,

    stephen Nichols Avatar stephen Nichols

    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

    We need hands-on accountants who can help us out with the many accounting and tax issues involved in our import/export activities. AK Tax & Accountancy have always helped us get our business affairs sorted out in a fast, professional and friendly manner. We highly recommend the AK Tax and Accountancy team.

Expert Margate Accountants

A sunny seaside town located on the north coast of Kent, Margate has acted as a significant maritime port since as far back as the Middle Ages, and was even originally associated with Dover as part of the Cinque Ports during the 15th century.

Margate has been a popular place for visitors and holidaymakers since the 18th century, and contributes largely to the Kentish tourist industry each year thanks to the pebbled beaches, boutique shops, and variety of bars and restaurants to enjoy. The well-connected links via the railway and Thames have also made the town a thriving area to start a business in, boosting the local economy with activity from London and other major cities in the surrounding area.

FAQs

How do I switch accountants?

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

Changing accountants doesn’t have to be difficult. At AK Tax, we’re dedicated to making the move as stress free as possible, ensuring minimal disruption to your business proceedings. We help guide you through every step of the process, and start by informing your current accountants, HMRC, and Companies House of your move, along with a request for assigned permission to deal with your documentation.

This includes getting a disengagement letter from your current accountants with details of the work they have completed for you and any key dates relating to your accounts, as well as professional clearance. We also request that you assign authority over to us to manage your tax affairs and deal with HMRC.

What if I am starting a new business?

If you’re just starting out as a new business, we have a specific package designed specifically to help you find your feet. Our team will help you through the process of setting up as a limited company with Companies House, and we will also support you in sorting out a new business bank account for all your financial proceedings to go through.
