The UK’s financial and insurance sector contributed £119.1 billion to the country’s economy in 2017—amounting to 6.5% of the UK’s total output.
The UK remains the world’s second-largest financial centre and the largest in Europe but as the industry develops, so too do the regulations that come with it. The complexity involved in being part of this sector all the more requires an accounting partner to make sure you stay compliant.
At AK Tax, we offer specialised accounting services for the financial sector whether you’re a self-employed individual (e.g. traders, brokers) or business or corporation (e.g. investment firms). From delivering regular financial reports to timely tax filings to excellent business advisory, we can help your financial sector business stay compliant and grow in uncertain economic times.
Here are just some of the areas in the financial services sector we have specialist knowledge and experience dealing with.
We have three packages to suit most needs, however, if it’s not quite tailored enough then please get in touch as bespoke packages are always an option.
