Moving Accountants

Accountants are extremely important to the functioning and profitability of your company. As well as managing your business accounts they ensure your business is compliant with the latest tax legislation and runs as tax efficiently as possible. There comes a time when your business or the accountant’s business grows or changes meaning you can be faced with the difficult decision of having to change from one accountant to another.


We’re often approached by prospective clients who ask us, “how do I change accountants?”. Many accountants will tell you that switching from one to another is a time consuming and an expensive process, however, it is a process which can be carried out fairly easily.


There are a number of reasons you might be thinking about changing accountant. The most common reason we are given from prospective clients who are looking to change accountant is that their business has grown or changed and their current accountant cannot cater to the needs of the business. Other possible reasons for wanting to change your accountant include:

  • A declining or poor level of service where for example, your accountant isn’t being proactive in encountering new tax-saving opportunities.

  • You have received poor advice from your accountant resulting in issues with the HMRC.

  • The fees being charged by your current accountant are unacceptable and they are unable to handle urgent matters.

Take the time to also ensure all your financial responsibilities have been taken care of. Loose ends such as disputes over unpaid fees often cause delays and disruptions to the smooth transfer from one accountant to the other. You should also double check the details of the agreement with your current accountant to see if there are any circumstances which could affect changing to a new accountant.


When moving to Sence we make the process as easy and pain-free as possible. From the moment you walk through our doors we will make you feel comfortable and at ease that all of your accountancy needs will be put into safe hands. We will take care of everything in the process of getting you moved across. Call 01530 267320 to speak to us about moving.
