Changing your accountant can be done at any time during your accounting year. The easiest time to do it for the simplest of change overs is at your year end.

If you switch from your current accountant to us at your next year end
we'll give you FOUR months accounting for the price of TWO

All you need to do is BOOK YOUR SWITCH SLOT before your year end paying two months of fees on booking. We'll lead you through the switching process making it as painless as possible.

When is the best time to Book to switch?

You can BOOK YOUR SWITCH SLOT at any time in the run up to your year end. Generally a good time would be in the last 4 months of your current year.

We'll work with you to ensure that the services that you've paid for with your current accountants, such as your accounts and tax returns, are completed before you switch to us.

The Switching Process Explained

Once you have decided to switch accountants, the process to change is quick and seamless with little effort required on your part.

Outstanding work and giving notice

Depending on the contractual arrangement with your current accountant you may need to give them notice. We suggest that you ensure that they have scheduled in your outstanding work, including the year end accounts, before you do this.

The accounts can be done as soon as your year end passes. So there's no reason to delay things although it'll be worth having a conversation with your current accountant to stress the urgency of getting the outstanding work up to date.

Professional Courtesy Letter

An accountant who is a member of a professional accountancy body, such as all CheapAccounting.co.uk accountants, is obligated to send a professional courtesy letter to your previous accountant.

This letter asks your previous accountant if there is any reason why the services cannot be switched as well as requesting the important paperwork needed to take on the accounts and tax work. As part of this process we'll establish the cut over date for payroll and any other obligations making sure that nothing falls through the gaps.

All you have to do is to give your permission for your previous accountant to provide the paperwork to us.

  • Be allocated your own dedicated qualified accountant
