Over 1,000 regional accountants already signed up, and free for new firms to join
For small businesses and individuals in need of accountancy advice, finding a reputable local accountant online can often be a time consuming and frustrating process, with so many firms to choose from but no way of knowing which will be best placed (and best priced) for the job.
But a new free service launched today, promises to take the time and hassle out of finding an accountant online, by selecting the most suitable provider for the job, based on expert recommendations and local knowledge.
HandpickedAccountants.co.uk is a new, entirely free service, which helps individuals and small business owners find the perfect accountant in their local area, personally handpicked for them to match their specific budget and accountancy requirements.
Anyone can use the website to find a suitable local accountant, either by inputting their postcode and choosing from a list of recommended local accountants or, if they prefer, they can let the experienced team at HandpickedAccountants.co.uk personally select the best local accountant for the job, promising to connect the two parties within just 24 hours.
At launch, over 1,000 qualified accountancy practices from across the UK are already listed on the site, all of which have been individually selected and reviewed, to verify that they are well-regarded in their local area for providing quality services at a competitive price.
The website and its list of handpicked accountants cover the full range of personal and corporate accountancy services, including Financial Planning, Personal Tax Services, Tax Return Services through to Accounts and Bookkeeping, Audit, Corporate Finance, Corporate Tax, Insolvency and Bankruptcy Services and Payroll Services.
HandpickedAccountants.co.uk has been developed by Begbies Traynor Group, one of the UK’s leading independent professional services consultancies, which draws upon the experience of more than 400 staff across 46 UK offices in handpicking accountancy practices for the site.
HandpickedAccountants.co.uk is entirely free for individuals and businesses to use, while also being free for accountants to join (subject to approval).
David Tattersall, Head of Client Services at HandpickedAccountants.co.uk, said:
“For individuals and small businesses in need of accountancy advice, choosing a reputable local accountant online can be like finding a needle in a haystack; with so many large and small firms to choose from, but with little information on the quality, reliability or value for money of their services. HandpickedAccountants.co.uk aims to solve this problem through its entirely free service, which will handpick the most suitable local accountant for every enquiry, saving both time and hassle in the process.
“We will find an accountant based on the specific needs of the customer – whether that is help with self-assessments, managing investments or retirement planning, changes in personal circumstances such as receiving an inheritance or falling on difficult times financially, or exiting a business. What’s more, the service benefits from our team’s extensive local knowledge of regional accountants, ensuring an entirely personal handpicked service with a guaranteed fast turnaround on all requests.”
