What is the process?

Once you have decided to change accountants, all you need to do is inform your previous accountant, a simple email will suffice, or if you prefer we can inform them for you.

Once they have been informed of the change, we will write to them requesting your accounting and tax records that they hold to make sure the change process is seamless.

All accountants are expected to provide the paperwork and records within a reasonable amount of time by their professional bodies – a process that accountants are familiar with.


How much will the accountant charge to hand this information over?

Providing you have paid for any work your previous accountant has completed, there is not generally a charge for this. Some accountants may charge for 30 minutes of their time.


Should I wait until the year end before changing accountants?

You can change accountants at any point in time. We can advise you as to whether or not it is beneficial to wait until the year end or whether to change straight away.

We can help you every step of the way, we are friendly and approachable and can make life simple for you!
