Products & Services


We offer the full range of accountancy services, from bookkeeping to the preparation of statutory accounts. You can do as little or as much as you like - all we ask is that generally, if you are doing your own bookkeeping, you let you have a look at it every few months just to enable us to give a bit of guidance, if appropriate, and to minimise year end accounting adjustments. However, if you just want to hand it all over to us, we have plenty of clients who just give us their receipts and bank statements on a regular basis, and we do the rest.

Corporation Tax

We can calculate and submit your corporation tax return to HMRC. We will ensure your company takes advantage of all relevant reliefs and provide advice to you regarding the most tax efficient options going forward. Whether it is advice on structuring certain transactions in order to be able to claim certain capital reliefs, of advice on exactly what is and is not a tax deductible expense, let Absolute Accountants help you to make sure you are fully compliant with HMRC rules, but only pay as much as you need to in tax.


VAT may appear to be straight forward, and in many instances it is. But there are plenty of complexities which can catch out the unsuspecting business person. Let Absolute Accountants review your business to determine whether or not you should register for VAT (even if you are below the VAT threshold) . With a range of schemes and options available from HMRC, it does not have to be a burden if you do it properly. Whether it is the standard scheme with quarterly returns, a flat rate scheme, annual returns or the cash basis, knowing your options and what they mean could leave you better off (and safe from HMRC penalties) .

Personal Tax (Including Sole Traders and Partnerships)

We cam complete your self assessment tax return to ensure you take advantage of all appropriate benefits and reliefs and pay the appropriate tax. In certain situations we may be able to retrospectively review prior tax returns and if appropriate a tax refund can be claimed. Never miss a deadline, with our reminder service for form submission deadlines and payment due dates.

Customer Testimonials

We changed accountants about six months ago, a big step but we are so much happier now that we have. Why oh why didn't we do it sooner!
We are benefitting almost immediately from the advice and guidance we are being given and we actually feel that Paul takes an interest in our affairs and tries to understand how our business works.
Not only that, but behind the friendly exterior is a very professional, highly efficient company who give us the confidence that our finances are being looked after properly. We can rest assured that they are in safe hands.
I will be recommending Absolute Accountants to any family or friends who may be in need of their services.

Paul is a great accountant. His company Absolute Accountants has been looking after my business for over a year now and they are very knowledgeable, always there to help and advice and just really nice to deal with. I highly recommend his services.

Paul and Letitia are not only first class accountants, but great communicators - a rare combination in professions! They make life easy for owners of SMEs, and have given me the time and confidence to focus on the things I need to be doing to grow my business.
I've recommended Absolute Accountants to family, friends and business associates, and I'm very happy to continue to do so.

I switched my acocuntant after being disappointed with the lack of interest in my business from my old accountant. Paul makes a real effort to understand what is is that I do and my challenges and actively introduces me to potentail new clients which is a great help. Their fees are also very resonable too!

Great accountants, very friendly and professional. Would recommend them to anybody.
