Certax Accounting is a professional accounting and tax advisory practice franchise with a network of over 100 offices across the UK. Certax has been in business for more than 20 years and is supported by a professional accountancy practice based in Chesterfield.
We are striving to change the perceptions people have of accountants being expensive, elusive and unapproachable. We want to work closely with you to help your business achieve its full potential by helping you:
- Understand what your accounts are telling you
- Plan for future growth
- Make financially secure business decisions
When engaging an accountant it is important to find someone you trust and can work closely with. We will come out to meet you at your business address for a free no obligation consultation, so you can get to know us and make the right decision for you and your business.
What makes Certax different?
- National footprint but local office ethos
- No customer too small
- Quality and range of services provided without the need to charge “large practice fees”
- Personal and friendly service tailored to customer needs
- Network of experts “on call” to assist with complex cases
- Strict codes of professional conduct and competence underpinned with ongoing professional development
