Why Use Calcutt Matthews?

We are accountants in Ashford and one of the most forward thinking firm of chartered accountants in the UK.

Changing Accountancy Forever

Most accountancy firms become commercially successful by having junior members of their firm prepare your accounts and then senior members of the firm spend just a few minutes each year considering tax savings for each of their numerous clients.

Our ethos is totally different. We believe in looking after less clients but giving them each a far superior service. For each client we spend time helping them to substantially grow their profits and we refer to this process as ‘Profits Up’. We then systematically and comprehensively review all of your taxes to ensure that these are minimised. We refer to this as ‘Tax Down’. It is always our aim that by these two processes to at least completely cover our fees and in many occasions hugely improve the cash flow of your Business by concentrating on both of these initiatives. See below for a complete description.

Profits Up

A key element of our work with many of our clients is to not only to shrink your tax bills but sometimes far more importantly help you to dramatically grow your profits and bank balance. In getting to know you and your business we therefore want to know your goals, aspirations and dreams so that we can turn these into reality.

Tax Down

Each year you will be given the opportunity to engage us to carry out a pre-year-end tax plan. At this meeting we shall consider all of the taxes that you pay and opportunities to reduce these.

In the meeting we should quantify the tax saving. We shall not leave any stone unturned under this approach from ensuring that the taxes you pay are legally minimised.

We also work with one of the largest accountancy firms in the UK London tax department and have the ability to obtain their services on your behalf when you need very specialist advice. All of this is available at a rate comparable with a tax partner in Kent.
