Hospitality businesses

You’re never far from something good to eat in the UK. If you run a cafe, restaurant, takeaway or bar, we can make life easier by handling your bookkeeping, payroll, tax and VAT. If you have ambitions to grow, from one outlet into a chain, our strategic business advice will support your plan and execution.

Building and development

Construction and tradespeople

Just look at the cranes on their skylines and you’ll know the UK’s towns and cities are never finished. From expert electrical contractors to residential property developers, we work with businesses of all sizes and shapes, advising on the construction industry scheme (CIS), VAT reverse charge and more.

Innovation and information

IT & Technology

From data centres to software development, the South East of England is one of the world’s great tech hubs. We support technology businesses with everything from bookkeeping to constructing compelling research and development (R&D) tax relief claims. If you’re an IT contractor, we can help you navigate the difficulties of IR35, too.

Schools and institutions

Education

We help academies, free schools, independent schools, colleges and other places of learning deliver more with less. It’s about supporting bursars by taking on jobs such as payroll, or providing advice on compliance with charity accounting standards, where appropriate. We can also help with tax planning.

Growing businesses

Small and medium sized enterprises

SMEs are the backbone of British business, employing millions of people. They’re also how big businesses start out. As well as delivering core accountancy services efficiently, we focus on business advice designed to help startups and small firms grow, expand and break through barriers.

Marketing, design and media

Creative sector

There’s a long association between the UK and the creative industries, from film production to advertising. From hands-on support with your agency’s accounts and payroll to advice on creative industry tax reliefs and IR35, we can help you operate more profitably and efficiently.

Shops and online selling

Retail & eCommerce

From Westfield to Walthamstow Market, London is where people go to shop. We specialise in providing guidance on retail VAT schemes, cashflow management and the integration of EPOS and stock control with cloud accounting systems. If you trade online, we can help with EU VAT and more.

Infrastructure and support

Business services

The UK is one of the great commercial centres of the world and behind every office building there’s an army of people providing cleaning, security and maintenance. From growth planning to complex payroll covering temporary staff, we can help your service firm achieve its full potential.

Britain makes things

Industrial & Manufacturing

We support businesses operating from railway arches, factories and state-of-the art production facilities. Often, it’s about providing the function of a traditional payroll and accounts department. More often, though, we’re there to help with R&D tax relief claims, business planning and corporation tax advice.

Experts and specialists

Contractors and freelancers

From architectural engineers to camera operators, we work with all kinds of people who make a living by sharing their expertise on a project-by-project basis. That might mean managing their personal income tax self-assessment returns or it could be about helping them stay on the right side of IR35.

"AudTax has been amazing. I would have honestly been lost without their tax guidance and expertise. They are patient with some of my lacking knowledge and very responsive on both email and calls”.

Natalie Marshall

"It is great to hear back from your accountant within 1-2 days and Audtax should be awarded for that! Great price compared with other high street accountants and better service”.

Kieran Humphreys

“AudTax understands my business and has helped me with effectively structuring my finances. As a small business, it’s not easy to find accountants that are responsive and professional. Would highly recommend”
