We focus on our key areas of expertise: individuals, property tax, contractors, and small limited companies. By restricting what we do, we have developed a deeper knowledge of both taxation and business issues in these areas.
By focusing on a few core areas we enhance the quality of tax and business we can provide to those chosen sectors, rather than trying to cover any type of businesses or tax situation.
As a two person business we believe this is the best size to provide focused, personalised accounting services to our core clients. When we are full, we simply stop taking on new work rather than growing and diluting our services.
Building up a strong personal relationship gives the basis from which to give the best advice. Continuity from year to year is a key part of our success.
By keeping things small and focused we can run an efficient practice, which translates to competitive fees for you. We publish our standard fixed fees for tax returns in a clear and transparent manner.
Concerns over fees can often be a distraction to giving good service to clients. We keep it very simple, offering fixed or capped fees for the majority of our work, including advice.
If you are a small service sector business, a landlord, a contractor or just an individual with a self-assessment tax return to do, then do take a look around the site. There is more about working with us, who we are, and our fees.
