A bespoke package, made for you

Your SME is unique, and so are its accounting needs. That’s why we allow you to pick and choose which services you need from us.

We can deal with all aspects of accounting on your behalf – from payroll to pensions – but as every business is different, we offer a bespoke package rather than a fixed fee. This is based on various factors, including turnover, number of staff, and required services.

The dreaded tax return will no longer be an issue – we’ll make sure it’s filed on time.

Our team can take on as many (or as few) of your financial responsibilities as you need us to. As a local accountant, we’ll ensure you meet your business goals – dealing with documentation, performance checks, and more.

Looking to switch?

If you’re considering switching your accountant, we’ll ensure you’re taken care of – managing all the required communications to make it as seamless as possible for you.

With cloud-based accounting through Bright Ideas Accountancy, you’ll be able to streamline your accounts, have full visibility of your finances, and meet compliance requirements for Making Tax Digital. We also offer a same-day response to email and telephone queries received before 4pm on weekdays.

That’s why we help small businesses of all shapes and forms – from sole traders (like plumbers, electricians, and hairdressers) to those with a turnover up to £5 million. Our bespoke package means we can support you whether you need simple bookkeeping requests or a much broader range of services.

    Jack has been a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable, thorough, professional and eminently helpful. Tax obligations were an intimidating prospect for me, so I'm grateful to have discovered the Bright Ideas accountancy. Every email I receive is simple and to the point, and I appreciate the periodic blog posts to keep me up to date on regulations as well!
