What our individual and contractor clients think

I was introduced to Ian of Vertis Accounting Limited through a mutual friend. Vertis Accounting helps small businesses and companies with implementing cloud accounting and business systems. I have now also introduced Vertis Accounting to two other contacts both of whom are using them and are very happy with the service. Great job!

Individual and Contractor FAQs

We will talk to you to learn about your business and agree a bespoke package of services with you. We do not provide standard packages of services that include items not relevant to you.

We specialise in serving the needs of small businesses, whether they are sole traders, partnerships or limited companies. We have a broad range of clients in these different business categories and this includes many who are one-person businesses.

We will agree a bespoke package of services with you based on your particular business and requirements. This will dictate the frequency of our accounts reviews. That said, as we pride ourselves on our advisory services we would never just look at accounts at a year end.

Of course. This is a very important element of the services provided by a Chartered Accountant.
