Thinking of switching to Aardvark? Do it!

Looking for better value for money from your contractor accountant without compromising on quality of service? We’re constantly taking on seasoned contractors who are disillusioned with the high prices, average service levels and ‘factory’ approach of the big boys.

  • Switching is quick and easy – we do it for you
  • Quick and responsive personal service
  • Pro-active tax reviews and advice

Why switch to Aardvark?

At Aardvark we keep things simple. You get all the stuff needed to satisfy HMRC and Companies House each year, FreeAgent included, the use of our Umbrella service free of charge, and a direct line to your personal accountant for any questions. All for just £69 per month plus VAT, or £110 per month plus VAT with business insurance included.

Switching is easy – just say the word and we’ll look after everything, getting your records from your old accountant and letting HMRC and Companies House know about the change. We don’t charge set-up or catch-up fees and there are no tie-in period or leaving fees either. So what are you waiting for? Give us a call and join the Aardvark family.

What you get with Aardvark

Our all-inclusive fixed-fee monthly packages start at £69+VAT and include:

  • Direct line to your own dedicated personal accountant – one point of contact
