What our clients say about us

‘We’ve used KAT Accounts for ongoing management of a portfolio of clients covering bookkeeping, VAT returns, accounts preparation, taxation (company, partnership and self-assessment) and payroll. Katrina's worked with me for 12 years and I have no hesitation in recommending her.’

Paul Scholes, Chartered Certified Accountant, Atria Associates Ltd


‘My company currently uses KAT Accounts for financial accounts, corporation tax and statutory filing, payroll and dividend service. All work is prepared with the minimum fuss, which results in reasonable fees and an efficient service which I would recommend to anyone.’

Alexandra MacWhirter, FT Luckman & Company Ltd

‘Katrina (KAT) has been preparing my annual business accounts and self-assessment tax return for the last three years. I find her professional, efficient and easy to approach. She explains everything in plain English and I am confident that I get full tax relief where entitled. The fees are reasonable and quoted in advance, and so there are no surprises! I would not hesitate to recommend her.’

Marilyn Brooks, independent health and weight counsellor

‘KAT Accounts helped me to sort out my overdue final accounts that were provided by a very incompetent accounting company. Since then I feel very lucky that I can entrust the key part of my business to a very competent and responsive company. I like the fact that I have one single point of contact that will answer all my questions and does the job properly. I know that I am in good hands and I always recommend KAT Accounts to fellow IT contractors; especially those who lose a lot of money using umbrella companies!’

Tax refunds

If you are in work now but have been out of work for part of the past four years – or have had gaps between different jobs – then you may be due a tax rebate.

Claiming a tax refund can seem stressful and complicated – but with our help you can claim back what’s yours, with the minimum effort and the maximum payment for you.

Many employees who have changed jobs and not provided their new employer with a P45 are due a tax refund because they have not had the benefit of the full personal tax allowance for the whole of the tax year.

All you need to do is give us your relevant employment history and we will check out if you’re due any tax back.

If we think you are due a rebate, we will give you a quote for the work required to claim the refund on your behalf. Simple.
