Find a cheap accountant for your Birmingham business
Looking for an accountant to help you with your business can be hard work when the finance industry uses a lot of jargon. It can make it difficult to work out what your business actually needs from an accountant, and which bits you might not be quite ready for.
The good news is that online accountancy is a growing area, so you can look beyond Birmingham-based accounting firms when you’re on the search for a new one!
More accounting choice for Birmingham businesses
Unless your heart’s set on working with an accountant who you can meet face-to-face on a regular basis, an online accounting firm usually means you can get the same services for much cheaper.
Operating an online practice allows these firms to set-up shop pretty much anywhere in the UK, avoid the inflated high-street location costs, and provide accounting services at a lower rate.
It means that a business based in Birmingham isn’t restricted to using their local accountant. Similarly, self-employed people and businesses from all of the UK can work with an online accountant who’s based in Brum. Which is great news if you have specific needs, or just don’t fancy paying high-street rates!
Choosing the best accountant for your needs
The cheapest price might be good for your budget, but low-cost accounting services might not be appropriate for your business if you need something very specific. Check out our guide to finding the right accountant.
It’s usually cheaper to find a firm that can deal with all of your accounting needs in one place, but keep an eye out for those that offer accountancy ‘bundles’. For instance, if VAT services are ‘included’, the base rate is probably higher, so you’ll be paying for it unnecessarily if you’re not actually VAT registered.
