The Practice was set up in 2004 by Louise Thorpe and Gary Barham, who after many years in the corporate world decided they wanted to set up their own business to serve the local community (the Practice covers Islington N5 & N7, Archway N19, Camden NW1 and Kentish Town NW5).

Gary has over 17 years commercial accounting experience and our accountants, who are also qualified, have over 10 years experience each.

Louise manages the whole practice to ensure efficiency and effectiveness, as well as development of the business in line with market and client needs.

The whole team gets a real satisfaction from helping owner managed businesses succeed in the local area. We provide a personal and responsive service on all aspects of accountancy, tax, self assessment tax returns, VAT, bookkeeping, payroll and company formations. All these services are provided at a pre-agreed and competitive fixed price'.

  • I would recommend this business

I've been with Tax Assist for 5 years now and they've been a godsend each year. The world of accounts confuses the hell out of me and they've been super efficient in helping me sort the business and personal accounts and talking me through it in a way I understand. I thoroughly recommend them.

  • I would recommend this business

I've used TaxAssist for the best part of ten years and am happy to recommend them. I mainly need them for business and personal accounts but I find myself asking all manner of other questions which come up and they're always helpful and informative. A while ago I shopped around to check how competitive their fees are, realised they were, and decided to stay. Happy to recommend them for any small business.

Excellent service, professional and not patronising towards someone who doesn't understand the workings of HMRC which is particularly important to me. Patient, friendly, high quality of work and a prompt turn-around. Highly recommend.

Customer Testimonials

Having started my own freelance graphic design business, I gave my accounts to Tax Assist for their understanding of small businesses. They provided me with excellent support every step of the way and made the process of getting up and running a lot less daunting than I had initially anticipated.

They provided me with excellent advice on how to run my affairs in the most tax efficient manner and were always very quick to respond to my enquiries. A big thanks to them for their patience and understanding with my many queries!


I strongly recommend Tax Assist. They received a lot of information from me over a period of a few months and pulled it all together to help me complete my Self Assessment. They are very experienced and excellent value for money.


Gary and Katie at TaxAssist Accountants have advised me very professionally regarding my tax return for several years now. If you need a great accountant for your small business or if you are working self employed look no further, you have found them!
