The Clever Accounts Mission for Small Business Owners Our Vision & Our Service

Our mission is to revolutionise accounting for small businesses, self-employed individuals and franchises simplifying and streamlining accounts, tax and bookkeeping and greatly improving the service they receive.

We provide a fully comprehensive online service, covering all the bookkeeping, accounting, tax compliance and advice that a small business needs. Not just software and not just expertise, but both in one all-inclusive, low-cost package. This new, modern approach dramatically improves the service small businesses receive reducing time, cost and risk and improving control.

The Federation of Small Businesses recently published the following facts about how the smallest businesses are let down by the tax regime and the traditional accountancy support model

  • Half the owners of the UK's smallest businesses spend up to 8 hours a month on tax admin
  • For 11% tax admin takes an astonishing six days per month
  • Two thirds of owners estimate the cost of dealing with tax obligations at over 3,500 pa
  • One in five said a lack of understanding about the tax system led them to miss tax deadlines
  • One in three said a lack of cashflow planning led to them not paying taxes on time

That's where Clever Accounts comes in... it really doesn't have to be that painful!!

The solution we offer is ideal for today's small businesses, whose owners want a quick, efficient and high-quality way to simply and cheaply take away the hassle of accounting and tax compliance and give them visibility over their financial position, using modern communication tools.

The things we stand for are:

  • Simplicity & ease - we use simple technology to make life as easy as possible for you
  • Keeping you safe - we take care of everything, on time, every time, with minimal hassle & clear advice
  • Unlimited support & clear advice - same day responses, sensible tax planning, at no extra cost
  • Accessibility - a named, qualified accountant, available when YOU want, by phone or email
  • Value and Transparency - less than 850 per year, fixed, for a complete business service

It is unlikely that a high-street accountant can offer you anything like the same range of value-added services that Clever Accounts can, at the price we charge.

Many small, micro and start-up businesses and self-employed individuals, do not get the service they need and deserve.

With a traditional approach, the onus is on you to collate and complete all of your books and records and get them to your accountant, in the form of emails, spreadsheets, manual records, or invoices and receipts. Your accountant then spends time processing them, often quite a while, and will finally get back to you with your accounts or tax liability and a large bill.
