The “A” Accounting Team

We are different to other accountants based in London, because being a small accounting firm we appreciate the need for a personal touch. We pride ourselves on our industry knowledge, hardworking attitude, flexible approach and enjoy nothing more than spending time getting to know each business we work with by providing them with the best advice possible.

Why not take a look at just some of the reasons why you should employ Approved Accounting as an extension to your team?

Face to Face Meetings

Although the majority of accounting is now done online, we do enjoy meeting our clients face to face. This allows us the opportunity to get to know you in your everyday environment, watch your business in action and get a clear understanding of your future ambitions.

Going the extra mile

It is unusual these days to find a business that runs 9-5 and therefore we want to make sure that we are available when you need us the most. That’s why our lines of communication are always open, regardless of where your business is based.

We make tax and bookkeeping Simple

Complicated forms, the fear of late fines and tricky terminology can make managing your finances a nightmare. At Approved Accounting we can file your year-end accounts, sort out your VAT and tax returns, advise you on workplace pensions, educate you on the Construction Industry Scheme and ensure everything is up to date and submitted on time. And when you don’t know your IR35 from your R40, we’ll make even the most complex forms easy to understand.

Tailormade Accounting For You

At Approved Accounting, we appreciate that when you work for yourself every penny count, so that is why we offer cost-effective financial packages based around your business’ needs and budget. Offering fixed monthly plans tailored to you, we’ll help you find the ideal service solution and promise no hidden costs – ever! Who knows, we might even save you money in the long term.
