Why Us?

There are plenty of brilliant chartered accountants to choose from so why talk to us? Here are three reasons that we believe make us the #1 accountant for writers

Experience

Although our business is new we've been advising our writer clients for years. In fact nearly 50 years between us. We understand creative averaging, what writers can claim for and even how withholding tax works.

Friendly

We won't roll our eyes if you get something wrong or if you ask what you think might be a stupid question. We enjoy what we do and love helping people to feel like they're on top of their finances.

Quality

Any one can call themselves an "accountant" but we're Chartered Accountants. We have to keep our knowledge up to date, have insurance in place and be regulated and monitored by a professional body.

About Writers Tax

"I would hate Louise or Jonathan to rate me because I am a terrible client. They in turn are reliable, patient and efficient. I will stay with them as long as they will put up with me"

“Although reputedly good with words I have an innate fear of anything involving numbers and so selecting the right Accountant was vital. Queries are always answered fully, promptly and at a level my non-mathematical brain can comprehend. I give Louise my highest personal recommendation”
