    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

    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

    stephen Nichols Avatar stephen Nichols

    After sitting with several accountants I engaged with Andy & AK Tax and Accountancy to help start our company and look after the accounts. I found Andy to have a welcoming and approachable demeanour which was strengthened by the professional service we received from him and his staff. A professional and reliable service for a reasonable price. If you're in the market for a new accountancy firm or just starting out with your business, then give these guys a call.

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.
