I sent you an email Eric as you were my first port of call but never got a response. I used the email in your profile on here. Is that right?

If you could let me have some contact details then we can get things going.

Mine are doug@g19engineering.com or 07886 005962

Thanks,

Doug.

Yep - who needs to know anything about boring stuff like tax law and double entry accounting systems.

Sorry - I should have clarified.
We happen to have the local office do the books and accounts for OH Sole trading company (soon to turn Ltd)
As it happen the guy who runs it is coincidently the old accountant from my current employer who is an 'accountant' I guess the franchising is what you want or need to make of it.

Perhaps we are blinkered but as per the Op requirements it / he / they fit the bill smile

My local Tax Assist franchise has a big shop fronted place with flashy looking signs and nice interior. I know the rent on the mirror unit across the road is 20k pa and there is only ever one guy sat in the tax assist office. I cant help but think how a big chunk of my inflated bill would be going towards this and not actually be for the cost of an experienced person spending time on my accounts.

http://www.rhp-partnership.co.uk - Norwich based, highly recommended by me. Have been working with them for nigh on 10 years.

Thread revival...

I am based in Norwich and my business is now at a size where I should really consider getting an accountant.

Currently run as a sole trader, but wish to go Ltd - I would be happy to do this.

I have several sub contractors on the books but some of these have made noises about wanting to become employees working only for me (rather than work for several companies), so I would need advice and support in setting this all up. I have no experience being an employer and the legislation/responsibilities that come with it. For this reason, it would be nice to have an accountant that I can actually meet so Norwich based would be nice.

So, any up to date recommendations? Are any of the above still valid?

Thanks

Unless you can find a specific local recommendation, I would suggest searching the ICAEW and ACCA websites for listed accountants. This doesn't mean they'll be any good, but...

Book a few initial meetings and see how you get on with them. Taking on a new client who wants to incorporate is an easy thing to do, so any accountant you decide to go with should be able to explain it well and appear organised/knowledgeable etc.
