Our typical turnaround time for tax returns is less than 1 week, sole trader and limited company accounts less than 2 weeks after your year end, vat returns less than 4 days after your quarter end and payroll processing the same day. Quite simply we aim to be as swift as possible while maintaining our impeccably high standard of quality. The quicker you have your figures the sooner you can make decisions, save for tax bills and the more useful those figures are. A team of accountants who act fast when you need them to can give your business the momentum it needs to succeed.

Our personal approach to accounts and tax is founded upon understanding the needs, wants, joys and stresses of running your own business. We understand that when you are busy you want to concentrate on running your business and making sales, hence our dedication to automating, reducing and eliminating your tasks when it comes to accounts and tax. We understand that your business is a lot more important to you than most people would think, it can be your life’s dedication, hence our dedication to be the business partner you can depend on. We have carefully built our business values and our team to fully commit to understanding you and your business.

What our clients say

Jamie Peterson, Lewis Peterson Ltd

After moving our business location we were looking for new accountants and approached Middlers largely on account of their informative and enterprising website. A meeting with them confirmed our choice. The decider came when we called our account manager Lynsey on a Sunday afternoon in something of a panic, and she responded quickly and professionally in a way that calmed us down by focusing on solutions rather than problems. Middlers have also set up a new limited company for us, and their assistance has taken all the strain from us, so that we can focus on establishing the company unsound footing. The team at Middlers are great, down-to-earth, knowledgeable people who go out of their way to help you!

M Hill Consulting LTD

Having use Middlers since I started my company 3 years ago - I couldn't rate them highly enough. They made the whole process of setting up my the business, managing VAT returns, corporation tax etc.. so easy and with limited overhead for myself. Their use of digital technology makes them stand out from the crowd and it has been great to see a local company grow into a fully established and trusted accountant.

Being new to the concept of self-employment and to the tax returns process, I was i suppose naturally a little anxious about how to go about carrying this out and about the time and efforts involved. Lynsey and Middler's were professional yet welcoming, and made this such a smooth and seamless process for me. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone looking for a great accountancy service from start to finish.

G Ewing (Inspiral Cycles)

Middlers are very friendly professional and helpful. They are fully conversant with Xero (and many other digital tools) and do everything needed to keep me control of Inspiral Cycles' accounts, bookkeeping, tax, payroll, NEST pension, etc... Middlers helped to transfer me to Xero and to work in a way that fully exploits the benefits, reduces costs, and their bookkeeping support saves me time. Very highly recommended.
