Approved Accounting understands the needs of aspiring small businesses. Our dedicated team can offer you expert advice and accountancy services to ease your day-to-day workload and achieve your business goals.

Our small business accounting services will help you succeed

Approved Accounting is an experienced team of small business accountants. We are passionate about helping our clients to master their finances and fulfil their ambitions. Our services extend to all sorts of businesses, from startups to fast-growing firms, sole traders to limited companies.

Whether you’re looking for light-touch bookkeeping, an introduction to accounting software, tax advice or in-depth financial reporting, we offer every accounting service you could need to help make your small business a success.

What is a small business accountant and why do you need one?

As a small business owner, managing finances can sometimes feel overwhelming. Investing in the services of good accountants can make your life a whole lot easier in the early days, and set you on the road to success.

Most small businesses we encounter have evolved from a great proposition combined with a passion to succeed. We help them to establish solid financial management from the outset, and support them with expert advice, every step of the way.

At Approved Accounting we provide a comprehensive range of small business accounting services – and so much more. We are a progressive and dynamic team, and our aim is to give you all the tools you need to achieve your goals in a competitive modern business environment.

Of course, nobody knows your business quite like you do. But we work exceptionally hard to get to know our clients and their businesses and take pride in becoming a trusted extension of their team.

Our accountancy services

We offer a comprehensive range of accounting services to our small business clients. Whether you’re just after a bit of help with the books, advice on tax efficiency or support with growing your business, we can tailor an accounts package around you.


As a sole trader or small business owner, your days are probably consumed with the operational side of your business. Keeping up with accountancy tasks such as bookkeeping can be hard, but the consequences of letting it slip can be a nightmare when it comes to completing your annual accounts and tax return.

With our monthly bookkeeping services, you can be certain of an accurate view of your figures all year round, to help you make better decisions and plan more efficiently for your annual tax bill.

Xero online accounting software

Although Making Tax Digital for most small businesses is already a requirement, if you are still using a spreadsheet then we can help to migrate your data into approved accounting software such as Xero.

Xero is the UK’s leading cloud-based accounting system, offering real time access to your finances and bank account on any device, anywhere in the world. As Gold Champion Xero Partners we can help you to harness this powerful tool which make your life easier, keep you compliant and enable you to run your business more efficiently.

Tax advice

Tax can be hard to get your head around, but with us as your dedicated small business accountants, it will be a weight off your mind. Not only can we ensure you always stay compliant, we can actively help you to save money and become as tax efficient as possible.

We can help with the time-consuming admin of submitting your annual tax return, with advice on allowable expenses and how to work out your tax bill. To ensure you don’t pay too much, we can identify relevant tax reliefs you may be entitled to.

Limited company formation

If your small business is beginning to grow, then it may be more beneficial from a tax point of view to form a limited company.

We can advise you on the pros and cons of establishing a limited company based on your financial status and outlook. If you decide to go ahead, we’ll walk you through the process of registering your company and make sure you have the knowledge and tools to comply with your new tax obligations.

How a dedicated small business accountant can benefit you

Think of small business accountants as an investment. We can benefit your business in so many ways, allowing you to do what you do best and run your business with confidence.

We will help you to establish solid accounting habits and efficient systems to run your business more efficiently.

From tricky terminology to daunting deadlines and unfamiliar rules and forms, you can rest assured that your business accounts will always be in order.

So much more than just number crunchers, we can become a trusted partner to support you on your business journey. This is what our clients like best about us.
