External Accounts are independent chartered accountants, tax and business advisors, based in Norwich but with clients all over the country.

We provide our services, by combining a breadth of expertise without the overheads of a typically larger practice. Our size also enables us to react quickly to our clients’ needs.

We believe strongly in being very transparent about what is being charged for and when. Wherever possible we offer fixed fees for an item of work rather than charging you for every minute of our time. As everyone’s circumstances are different please feel free to get into contact for a formal quotation.

  • Charges can be agreed in advance
  • Fees will be fixed wherever possible
  • No ‘surprise’ charges for a simple email reply or phone call

You understand how to simplify things for people like me who do not know what they should be doing and are polite, efficient and have a professional style that is still “human” and friendly.

About Us

Matt, our managing director, had spent almost 20 years in large regional firms and felt there was sufficient demand for a more down-to-earth type of advisor, moving away from the large firm corporate mentality. He therefore set up External Accounts in 2015.

Our ethos is to ensure you receive high quality, timely advice to enable your business to run efficiently and profitably. Our aim is to become a long term business partner to all of our clients.

Getting to know you is the most important aspect of being able to provide pro-active advice and guidance and we take pride in understanding how your business works. We like to keep in constant touch with you throughout the year, not just when a deadline is due. Forward planning is much more important than the year end compliance.

We aim to be a cost effective professional solution and your one-stop-shop for your business support needs. Together with our sister company, External Services, we can jointly offer the full support package for the small business.

You respond quickly and efficiently to queries and you consistently provide services and assistance over and above that which you are contractually required to provide.
