Find out what our client’s think about working with us and how we have helped them to prosper.


I have been a client of the Small Business Team at The Smart Accountants since early 2020. They look after all my accounting and tax requirements so that I can concentrate on my business.

From the outset I have found them to be extremely approachable, proactive and professional, as well as keeping the service personal to my business needs.

The team not only dealt with my accounts quickly and efficiently for the last two accounting years, but also provided excellent communication and resources throughout the pandemic that has been invaluable.

I have been really impressed with the service The Smart Accountants have provided and would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.”

Michael Parsons, Director

The Smart Accountants has looked after our statutory books for the past 5 years and has always been proactive and extremely responsive to our needs. We are a VC backed startup so things are constantly changing and fundraising is regular. The fees are sensible and the team are always on hand if we need a nudge in the right direction. Highly recommend.

Aaron Awan, Finance Director

We recently explored our succession routes with The Smart Accountants and ultimately, transitioning to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) with their assistance was the most attractive route. The key reasons behind this were it allowed us to retain our independence by not selling to a competitor, provide control to our founders over when and how to exit the business, and the ability to combine the EOT with EMI share option schemes. Of course, our staff were also a key reason and the EOT allowed us to reward them without them having to buy shares with their own funds and to increase engagement through this sense of ownership. Throughout the process, The Smart Accountants were able to offer expert EO advice, which combined with their understanding of our business and partners to take care of the legal side, made the whole implementation process very smooth.

Chris Jones, Director

We use The Smart Accountants to produce both audited and non-audited accounts for our two separate companies. I have always found them to be understanding of our business’s needs, and provide solid professional advice in a down to earth way.

They are always at the end of the phone when we need them and offer the full range of accounting services at competitive prices.  We value them and feel valued by them, which I feel is very important in any business relationship.

Anthony Hogarth, Financial Director

The team have helped us grow and become more professional. Dave has been invaluable in advising us. He has helped our accounts team so much and they now absolutely love Xero!

David Sharp, Director

As our accountants and advisors, the Smart Accountants have always been on hand to support our business but recently they helped the sale of our business to an Employee Ownership Trust. Ultimately this transaction helped us with obtaining a fair price for the business, ensuring long-term succession, and rewarding our employees. The team supported us from the very initial advice and planning stage right through to the implementation and were on hand to offer their expertise throughout.

Stock taking was a nightmare and we kept everything on spreadsheets until we spoke to the team. Switching over to Xero was an easy process.

Mick Ginn, Manager

One of my previous headaches was always the absence of reliable management information and that often consumed my time unnecessarily. Since working with the team, they have implemented new systems, enhanced existing systems and they provide information on a monthly basis which is accurate and clearly communicated. This allows me to spend time doing what I should be doing.

Combine that with their sector expertise, knowledge and professionalism we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.

Sheldon Paule, Director

We appointed the firm as our first agricultural financial advisors when we changed from a tenancy to using a contractor to farm our land. Our experience has been wholly good. As well as providing annual farm accounts and tax computations efficiently and ahead of schedule, by taking the time to understand in detail the issues which relate specifically to us, the team have alerted us to money saving possibilities.

Tim Dye, Partner

We've always found the team to be responsive, helpful, and proactive in suggesting ways for us to improve our processes. In particular, we have been happy with the move from Sage to Xero, which has made our lives much easier as we grow our business.
