what does an accountant do for a small business

Running a small business can be all consuming. You will probably feel as though you need to be an expert in all areas of the business and yet having the time to acquire the specialist knowledge needed for each function, let alone the time to get everything done can be too much.

By working with a small business accountant however, you can rely on the in-depth knowledge and experience they offer to efficiently handle all your accountancy requirements while also providing reassurance and guidance for the growth of your business.

At Kingston Burrowes, we can provide expert accounting support you need, including completion of your year-end accounts, management of your payroll, completion of VAT and Corporation Tax returns, Management Accounts and Cashflow Forecasting. In completion of these tasks, we will deal with HMRC on your behalf and get the all-important forms and returns completed, saving you vital time which could be better invested in other areas of the business, while providing much need reassurance that you are meeting your legal obligations.

By utilising our specialist small business accounting service, you will benefit from a dedicated accountant to manage all your tax and accounting requirements, at the fraction of the cost of employing a full-time accountant within your business.

While supporting you with your essential requirements, we will always advise you on tax saving opportunities which could benefit your business. Our experience working with such a range of small businesses, means that we can provide the expert guidance you need to ensure that your business is operating as tax efficiently as possible.

We are also on hand to answer any question regarding the future plans and growth of your business. Your requirements and priorities will naturally change as the business evolves and we understand what it means to have support you can rely on throughout your business journey.

Why is a small business accountant near me better than an online accountant?

In your search for accountancy support, you may have come across various online packages, many of which claim to provide cheap accountancy services.

While these services do provide some of the functionality of a local accountant, they are more limited in the flexibility they offer and this doesn’t always suit the changing needs of a small business.

Most online accountants operate as subscription-based services, which is fine for straightforward requirements but less effective if you require additional advice and guidance.

From our offices in Surbiton and Cheam, we deliver the efficiency and simplicity of these online services, while also providing the flexibility of a traditional accountancy service with a dedicated accountant for your business.

Our approach is centred on gaining a true understanding of your business journey, in addition to your future plans for growth. This allows us to meet your tax and accountancy requirements while offering additional insight and support tailored to your business.


At Kingston Burrowes we have provided accountancy support to small businesses in all sorts of industries, such retail, hospitality, manufacturing, leisure, engineering, construction and many more.

By working with us, your business will benefit not only from our extensive experience across these industries but also the tailored approach we take when providing your business with tax and accounting support.

We understand the complexity and changing nature of a small business, and however minimal the support you require, we will accommodate those needs so that you only need to pay for the services you require. 


In response to the Government’s Making Tax Digital (MTD) campaign, the use of cloud (online) accounting software for completion of your accounts and tax returns has become increasingly important.

Kingston Burrowes is committed to helping our clients to manage their finances using accounting packages for small businesses such as Xero, Quickbooks and other providers.

The automation offered by these accounting packages ensures that your accounting processes are as streamlined as possible and that important financial records are retained for easy access in future.

There are significant cost saving benefits to be made by using such accounting packages and with a knowledgeable and supportive accountant such as ourselves at hand we can guide you through the setup (or migration) process and provide advice along the way to ensure you make the most of cloud accounting.

From simpler invoicing, 24/7 access, real-time reporting, data security and more, you will wonder how anyone ever managed without online accounting packages.
