Small business accountants in Sutton Coldfield

Hey, I am Tom, a small business accountant helping clients in Sutton Coldfield.

I work with small business owners who need extra support. Typically, clients come to me when they’re not getting the support they need from their current accountant.

Helping you with your accounts, bookkeeping, VAT returns, self-assessment, payroll, and anything that will make your life easier and remove the dreaded tax headache.

It starts with the basics, caring about your business, picking up the phone, and set packages so you’re not landed with whopping great bills unexpectedly.

Independent accountant

I am an independent accountant, which means you will only be dealing with me.

I work with clients in and around Sutton Coldfield: Four Oaks, Mere Green, Roughley, Walmley, Wylde Green, Minworth, Reddicap, Trinity, Vesey.

All fees are agreed in advance and are monthly packages, so you know exactly what you pay each month. Meeting your HMRC and Companies House deadlines and we will do that well in advance, but the other part is equally important, being there for you when you have questions and need extra support.

Clients have said He’s made my life so much less stressful” and that’s what it’s all about, making your life easier and less stressful. Because let’s be honest, running a business is hard enough as it is.

Finding an accountant in Sutton Coldfield – Common questions

How long does it take to change accountants?

It can take anything from 24 hours to a couple of weeks. The process is relatively simple, if we work together, I will send you the onboarding steps within 24 hours, then once they’re completed, I will carry out the AML checks and request professional clearance from your previous accountant. A realistic time frame would be 2-3 weeks.  Video: How to change accountants – 5 easy steps.

How much does it cost to work with you?

There is not a one-size-fits-all all, but sole trader accounts start from £300/year and small Limited Company accounts start from £110/month. I am probably not going to be the cheapest, but packages are designed to give you the support you need.

Can we meet face-to-face in Sutton Coldfield?

Of course! With most clients, I communicate over the phone, email, and WhatsApp. But you can’t beat meeting face-to-face, whether that’s an initial discovery session or going through your accounts in person. If this is important to you, I am happy to do it.

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

This one is a big one… YES! No ghosting, no going AWOL, I will always answer or call you back, as a friend or family member would. Nothing is more annoying than trying to contact someone who doesn’t get back to you.

Why Choose Every Cloud Accounting?

⭐ Unlimited support – You will have one point of contact, me. You will always get a response and you will never get billed for phone and email queries. It’s really important to me that you feel comfortable picking up the phone.

⭐ Relaxed, reliable, and friendly – No acronyms or stuffy accountancy speak, I speak like a human in layman’s terms. Accountancy is confusing enough already, without dropping words into the conversation that would score well on Countdown.

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 about finding an accountant in Sutton Coldfield

Will my current accountant know I have contacted you?

No, only if we work together, I will then request written permission from you to contact your current accountant, until you have done so, no contact will ever be made.

Do I have to work with you after a discovery call?

Of course not! A discovery call is all about seeing if we are a good fit, both ways. If you’re not confident I can help you, it doesn’t make sense to work together. You must believe that I can have a positive impact on your business.

Can we work together if I am halfway through my year-end?

For sure, you can change accountants at any point. If you have immediate deadlines within the next few weeks it makes sense getting these submitted. But after that I can onboard you at any point, there will be an alignment fee to bring you up to date, then a monthly package moving forward.
