Is it hard to switch accountants?

Switching to The Accountancy Partnership is a straightforward process. Once you sign up, you’ll just need to let us know the details of your current accountant, and we’ll arrange the rest. That way, you can concentrate on doing what you do best; running your business.

When should I change accountants?

You can move to a new accountancy firm at any time. Some people like to wait until the end of the tax year or their financial year, but really – it's entirely up to you. Whatever you prefer, we’ll be here to make changing to your new accountant as easy as possible.

How long does it take to switch to a new accountant?

We’ll get started on your transfer straight away. As soon as your old accountant sends us everything we need, we’re all systems go! We could have you set up with your new accountant in a matter of days.

Why change your accountant to The Accountancy Partnership

We help hundreds of businesses switch accountant every month

Our personal touch

We don't do 'account managers'. We will provide you with your very own dedicated accountant, who will get to know both you and your business in detail, to help support its growth.

All filing is included

Which means no hidden costs. We will complete your annual accounts and submit any necessary tax returns to ensure your business always stays compliant with HMRC.

Unlimited expert advice

Your dedicated accountant will always be on hand to answer any questions about your small business. You can contact them via email, phone or with a video call any time you like.

We currently help over 13,000 businesses in the UK to thrive
