About Us

Good value, great technology AND personal service – no compromises

Aardvark is all about doing what we know and doing it well, so we focus on what’s important to contractors when it comes to money; value pricing, friendly knowledgeable people and simple, effective technology. But don’t just take our word for it – take a look at our Google reviews to see what our clients think.

Who are we?

A small but perfectly formed team of contractor accounting experts, we’re proud that the Aardvark team consistently punches above its weight in terms of service levels – just take a look at our google reviews! We keep things simple, so all our clients get a direct line to their dedicated personal accountant, FreeAgent software to keep track of finances, and everything they need included in their fixed monthly fee.

Aardvark operates as an independent business within a small group of other accounting companies, with a 25 year heritage. These links mean that Aardvark clients get free use of an umbrella company, independent financial advice for mortgages, insurances and savings, and preferential rates for broader accounting services for small business and buy-to-let landlords. We like to think that this gives our clients the best of both worlds – the personal service and specialism of a small business, with good value ‘in-house’ extras if they’re needed.

We love welcoming new clients to Aardvark – it’s easy to join and we’re easy to work with. So put the kettle on, give us a call and let’s talk – we’re all ears.

Why ‘Aardvark Accounting’?

We’re often asked about our name, and the truth is that ‘Aardvark’ was a result of a brainstorm in the pub after work. As a group of experts in contractor accounting, we had a very clear idea of the business we wanted to create but hadn’t really thought about a name. We wanted something simple and friendly that was easy to remember and would stand out in the crowd. We joked that something beginning with Aa would at least get us to the top of alphabetical directory listings, and, a few pints and a sketch on the back of a beer mat later, Albert the Aardvark was born.

Named after Einstein, he’s somewhat more approachable and perhaps a tiny bit less clever than the genius physicist. Our Albert also represents our core values of being value for money, personable and clever. He’s become our mascot and even gets us to the top of those listings sometimes.
