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.
Left it a bit late with my accounts and tax return, but I got a quick appointment and they managed to get it all sorted out in time. Thanks guys.

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.
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.
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.
