New online service launched to recommend Yorkshire accountants

Over 100 Yorkshire accountants already signed up, and free for new firms to join

Begbies Traynor Group, one of the UK’s leading independent professional services consultancies, has announced the launch of HandpickedAccountants.co.uk a new, entirely free online service, designed to help individuals and small business owners find recommendations to suitable and reputable accountants in their local area.

At launch, over 1,000 qualified accountancy practices from across the UK are already listed on the site, including hundreds from Yorkshire, all of which have been individually selected and reviewed by Begbies Traynor staff around the country, to verify that they are well-regarded in their local area for providing quality services at a competitive price.

HandpickedAccountants.co.uk has been developed by Begbies Traynor Group, one of the UK’s leading independent professional services consultancies, which draws upon the experience of more than 400 staff across 46 UK offices in handpicking accountancy practices for the site.

For small businesses and individuals in need of accountancy advice, finding a reputable local accountant online can often be a time consuming and frustrating process, with so many firms to choose from but no way of knowing which will be best qualified (and best priced) for the job.

Visitors to the site can use the website to find a suitable local accountant, either by inputting their postcode and choosing from a list of recommended local accountants or, if they prefer, they can let the experienced team at HandpickedAccountants.co.uk personally select the best local accountant for the job, promising to connect the two parties within just 24 hours.

The website and its list of handpicked accountants cover the full range of personal and corporate accountancy services, including financial planning, personal tax services, tax return services through to accounts and bookkeeping, audit, corporate finance, corporate tax, insolvency and bankruptcy services and payroll services.

Julian Pitts, regional managing partner for Begbies Traynor in Yorkshire, said: “In our role as one of the UK’s leading restructuring and turnaround advisors, we work closely with thousands of individual accountants every year. Our national network of offices meant we have been able to pull together the knowledge of over 400 staff into one database and online matchmaking service for potential clients to find a suitable accountant who specializes in providing services to meet their particular needs, and we aim to keep growing that bank of expert accountants now that the website has officially launched.”

David Tattersall, head of client services at HandpickedAccountants.co.uk, said: “We will find accountants based on the specific needs of the customer – whether that is help with self-assessments, managing investments or retirement planning, changes in personal circumstances such as receiving an inheritance or falling on difficult times financially, or exiting a business. What’s more, the service benefits from our team’s extensive local knowledge of regional accountants, ensuring an entirely personal handpicked service with a guaranteed fast turnaround on all requests.”

The service is entirely free for individuals and businesses to use, while also being free for accountants to join (subject to vetting and approval).
