Never be frustrated by
accounting issues again
Our expert, clear and transparent process only requires you to do the bare essentials so you can focus on your business and not accounting.
How we work

To be transparent, accountancy has evolved. A lot of the work we used to do is now handled by our technology. It does the heavy lifting for us. This means we can give you the personal service you’ve always hoped for from your accountant.

Further, our Co-Pilot Services gives you direct access to an approachable, senior accountant with over 20 years experience to share your plans with and dissect what really drives your profits.

If we agree to work together it is because we know what needs doing to get you closer to your financial goals. We only work with types of businesses we know we can help.
We utilise our detailed, user-focussed, analytical client portal to allow you to send and sign documents securely and remotely.
The process of switching accountants is something we’ve guided many clients through. It is not as difficult as you might think and we will help you through each step.
You will have your own personal client manager as well as a senior accountant. They will provide you with a clear timeline of anything you need to do and when you might need to pay any tax.
Our senior accountants know all of their clients by name and can recount their clients’ financial goals on demand. You will not be another number on a spreadsheet.
We will co-pilot the finance function of your business giving you clear goals and statistics. Further, we will create, and help you implement, a step by step plan so that we can deliver the change your business needs.
85% Paper Free accounting *
No complicated paper forms. No out of date computer software. Just efficient, user-centric cloud applications you can access from anywhere.
We let the computers do what they do best so that we can do what people do best. Your client manager is at the end of the phone whenever you need them. We charge a set fee so you don’t have to worry about an hourly rate. Our mission at The Accountancy People has always been to create hassle free accounting. The environmental impact of our low carbon footprint is simply a byproduct of our increased efficiency in our processes.
Made for you

James Sheard our founder has actually founded and grown a business himself. He has real life experience of what is required and is extremely passionate (almost too passionate) about his business, something he shares with his personal Co-Pilot clients.

We leverage technology so the reports you need to manage your business can be created easily. We know many Entrepreneurs need more than just a boring accountant to file their taxes. This is why we created the Co-Pilot Service. If you believe that everyone is unreliable, if you want to grow but don’t know how, if you believe too much rests on you or even if you just want someone to talk to about your business… This service is for you.

For the rest of the work, we have a specific pathway for 90% of businesses and start-ups who need someone to take care of the ‘essentials’. We’ll explain what you need to know in plain English, tell you what we need from you in a timely manner and then you can forget about accounting and focus on what you do best.
