What can we help with?
For more specialised advice or the more intricate work involved in larger businesses (particularly those using their own accounting packages or requiring bookkeeping services) we would recommend our sister company Atkinson Accounts. In the rare event that we do not have the in-house technical expertise we will out -source specific pieces of work as required and with your permission.
What makes e-counting different/Why chose e-counting?
- Use a dedicated online bank account
- Have no, or very few, cash transactions
- Issue no, or very few, cheques
If you run your business finances like this, then it is not necessary that you buy any software to do your accounts. You can ignore online accounting package adverts; you can ignore those advisors who advocate you go on a bookkeeping course – let your bank record the transactions instead – they are quite good at it!
We will need to understand your business and may have queries on specific transactions but that is the same with any accountancy practice. The beauty is that all you need to do, initially, is send us a download of your bank account. No bags of receipts, no bank reconciliations, no software. You can just get on with running your business and managing your bank account.
Also, it is not necessary to attend your accountants office for meetings! We can offer the same service via phone and email, so we can offer this service Nationally.
All our communications are available via an encrypted client portal, so there is no security risk.
We hope our pricing reflects this simple approach to accounting. We will provide the same tax advice, prepare the necessary accounts, prepare tax and VAT returns plus payslips etc; just without the bother.

Our aim is to enjoy our work and help our clients enjoy the whole accounts / tax process too. We have a friendly style and approachable nature, with the added bonus of being a wholly online service.
When a client is considering a move to a new Accountant, we are happy to put ourselves forward as a comparison and offer a quote at no charge. We are confident that our service levels far out-weigh larger firms and we are amongst the most affordable Chartered Accountants in the country. We are here to serve family owned and run businesses and offer the best advice commensurate with the business’s finances. We have pleasant offices but we are not burdened with excessive marketing and property cost overheads.
The change process is easy too. We will take the required details, ask that we are signed on as the Business’s agent with HMRC; contact the old accountant and obtain the required information. All you need to do is to discuss their financial affairs with us in detail – hopefully we can offer some beneficial advice regarding potential changes that will make the move even more worthwhile. If you wish to advise your existing accountant of the change that is fine with us.
I’ve just had my accounts done and don’t need an accountant until next year, so is there any need to contact you now?
Is there a charge to transition from my previous accountant?
