Independent Accountant Burton on Trent

Hey, I am Tom an independent accountant, helping clients in Burton on Trent.

I work with small business owners who need more support from their accountants. Typically, clients start working with me, when they’re not getting the support, they need from their current accountants.

That could be submitting tax returns a few days before the deadline, feeling like that they just don’t care, or whopping unexpected bills landing on your doorstep.

I can be your sole trader or Limited company accountant, helping with bookkeeping, VAT, self-assessment, and payroll. That’s the standard services but being a small business accountant is so much more than that, it’s about being there with unlimited support to give you the support you need.

I offer a relaxed and friendly service and the goal is really to take that financial stress away, so you can focus on what you’re good at and more importantly enjoy.

All fees are on a set monthly package, which we agree to in advance, so you know exactly what you’re paying each month, no surprises.

Small business, independent accountant

I am an independent accountant, which means I don’t run a big practice, you will only be dealing with me.

I work with clients in and around Burton on Trent, including Abbots Bromley, Barton Under Needwood, Branston, Hoar Cross, Uttoxeter, and, Yoxall.

All fees are on set monthly packages, so you know the exact amount you’re paying each month, no unexpected bills!

One of my clients Kate said, Tom is a great accountant, and also makes us comfortable and confident in all he does. Highly recommend!”

And that’s what it’s all about, feeling comfortable dealing with me, picking up the phone. I will always be here for support when you need it.

Common questions to finding an accountant in Burton on Trent

How long does it take to change accountants?

Changing accountants can be a bit like changing banks, it’s easy to put off, but once you start it’s relatively simple. The process can be carried out in 24 hours, but typically it takes 2-3 weeks. Video: How to change accountants – 5 easy steps.

How much does it cost to work with you?

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all and after the discovery call, you will receive a personalised proposal for your business. Some ballpark figures are sole trader accounts start at £300/year and small Limited Company accounts start at £110/month. I am probably not the cheapest in Burton on Trent, but packages are designed to give you the proper support you need.

Can we meet face-to-face in Burton on Trent?

Yes, yes we can! With most clients, we get into a good routine of speaking over the phone, email, or WhatsApp. But you can’t beat meeting face-to-face, especially at the discovery meeting. If this is important to you, we can meet in person in Burton.

Can I contact you if I need to speak to you?

YES! I want my clients to get in contact, as part of the service you get unlimited support, so I will always answer your phone calls or get back to you. No going AWOL or ghosting, because that drives me crackers.

I wasn't sure if I needed to speak to an accountant, but having decided to contact Tom I'm so glad I did.I was worried my questions might be too basic but he was so helpful, and gave me tips about using the Government Gateway so it no longer seem so overwhelming.You don't need to earn a big income to find an accountant helpful!I have now done a couple of things with HMRC to ensure my self assesment will be more straight forward and less daunting.If you are thinking of contacting Tom, I can't recommend him highly enough.A very knowledgeable and patient accountant - so good at explaining the whole process!

Tom at Every Cloud Accounting is simply brilliant. He is really easy to work with, and doesn't bamboozle us with a million questions - he does his job brilliantly whilst leaving us to run our business. I have worked with countless accountants over the years and Tom is the first one that I have actually enjoyed working with! In just six months he has set us up on QuickBooks and Dext, has produced a three year financial forecast for a funding application and offered us advice on tax and dividends - all whilst keeping up with our book keeping and VAT returns. I would recommend Tom to anyone looking for an approachable, friendly and professional accountant.

Common concerns of finding an accountant in Burton on Trent

Why should I switch accountants?

If you’re getting a great service from your current accountant, it makes no sense to change accountants.

But if you have that nagging feeling that you’re not getting the support you need, it could be the right time to start finding a better one. I am confident I can offer you the support you need, but it doesn’t have to be Every Cloud, there are hundreds of great accountants out there.

Does my current accountant know if I contact you?

Unless they have Spidey senses, no! I would never contact your current accountant without your permission. There’s a process called professional clearance, but this only happens once you have decided to move and given written permission to request details from your previous accountant.

What is a discovery call?

A discovery call is a quick 15-minute call so I can find out more about you and your business. It’s all a great opportunity to see if we are a good fit working together.

Can we work together still if I am halfway through my accounting period?

Yes! You can move accountants at any point in your financial year, you don’t have to wait until the end. The one thing to be aware of is immediate deadlines like payroll or VAT deadlines. If these are due in the next few weeks, it’s good to get these sorted before moving.

If you join part way through your year-end, there would be a small alignment fee to bring you up to date, then it’s a fixed monthly package thereafter.

An example would be if you have a year-end of 31st March and you were looking to move to Every Cloud in May, there would be 1/12 of your accountancy bill as an alignment fee for April, then moving forward you’re all sorted.
