Engineering & automotive

Dynamic accounting for ambitious professionals

Innovative, analytical and interested in the complex moving parts that make up the bigger picture: engineers are our kind of people. But we know that you didn’t get into this field to spend time organising your finances and calculating tax.

That’s why we’re here to do it for you, whether you’ve just set out on your own as a freelance engineer, or are running an established engineering firm.

We also have years of experience working with the various businesses that make up the automotive industry, from car manufacturers to motorsport professionals.

We offer the traditional tax and accounting services you’ll need to keep your business compliant – that’s a given – but we’ll also work with you to establish a solid business plan and monitor your progress over time. To us, it’s just important to dig into the figures as it is to record them, and we want to make sure you get the most out of your accounts too.

Our specialist services include:

  • applying for grant funding (including grant audits)
  • claiming R&D tax relief for innovative projects
  • business startup and structuring
  • meeting off-payroll working (IR35) rules.

If you’re ready to take the next step please get in touch.
