Expert Sittingbourne Accountants

An industrial town situated in Kent, Sittingbourne sits beside the Roman Watling Street, an ancient British trackway used by the Romans and Anglo-Saxons. Next to the Swale, Sittingbourne first saw prominence during the 1100’s, as it was a convenient resting point on the road from London to Canterbury and Dover. Today, the town still sees thriving activity between the major cities in the surrounding areas, creating a bustling hub that delivers promising opportunities in terms of the employment market. The Chatham Main Line links straight to Victoria Coach Station, while HS1 goes directly to St Pancras International.

With a population of almost 70,000, the town has historically been known for its paper-making, brick-making, and barge-building, with manufacturing and engineering remaining a key part of the local economy today. Sittingbourne is home to one of Kent’s most affluent business areas, the Eurolink Business Park, with 280 companies operating within the hub.

FAQs

How do I switch accountants?

Finding the right accountant for you and your business is crucial if you want to see real growth. If you’re finding yourself frustrated with your current accountant, feel constantly kept in the dark with your finances, or concerned you’re not getting a proper return on your investment, it might be time to consider a change.

Switching accountants doesn’t have to be hard. At AK Tax, we guide you through every step of the way to ensure minimal disruption to your business. We start out by informing your current accountants, HMRC, and Companies House of your decision to move, requesting permission to deal with your documentation. We ask for professional clearance from your existing accountant, which includes a disengagement letter outlining the details of the work they have completed for you, along with any key dates relating to your accounts. We also ask you to 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 with a new business, we have an accountancy package entirely tailored for you. Our expert team of accountants are here to help you set up as a limited company with Companies House, and will also support you in setting up your own business bank account for all your financial activity to go through.
