Many people are worried by self assessment and looking after their records – don't be. It doesn't have to be that complicated and any problems are usually simple to solve. Getting an accountant doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive either.

Fees can be agreed in advance, and I only charge for work done, meaning that initial conversations and general advice to clients about things such as record keeping aren't charged. If there are areas of record keeping that can be improved which mean less work for me, then we'll discuss them.

You don't just have to be based in the North East either – I currently have a number of clients as far afield as London, Aberdeen, Manchester, Leeds and California.

Most people just want a set of accounts and the chore of the tax return done with the minimum of fuss, and I aim to provide just that. If you need some more persuading, please read my (carefully selected of course!) testimonials page.
