Small Business Accountants

Comprehensive accounting service for small businesses

At Gorilla Accounting, we provide a comprehensive accounting service for small businesses just like yours.

No two businesses are the same and our expert team will give you a personalised approach to your accounts, getting to know the ins and outs of how you work and how to maximise your finances to allow your business to grow.

We were once a start-up company ourselves, which means we understand how daunting it is to start a business from the ground up. We’ve experienced the growing pains and challenges faced in those early days, which is why we’re uniquely placed to provide the right level of support to any small business.

Over the last few years, there has been a significant rise in the number of people starting their own businesses. In a job market that has been clouded by uncertainty, especially post-covid, many are finding it the perfect opportunity to make the leap into entrepreneurship.

However, this also brings its own distinctive challenges. With an increase in the level of compliance needed to run a business, managing your own tax affairs and submitting VAT returns has become a complicated but important process. Having a partner for guidance and support has become a critical requirement.

This is where Gorilla can help.

Whether a fresh start-up or an established company, our accounting services have been created to take away some of the pressure, leaving you with the work/life balance needed to run a successful business. Our specialist advisors can help you navigate the complex landscape of accounting, business taxes, tax returns and day to day finances – allowing you the space to focus on your business whilst we focus on your numbers.

We’re a tech-savvy business that has experience working with a diverse variety of industries, from tech start-ups, to established SMEs, contractors, freelancers and Locums. You can find out more about the sectors we work with here. We’re able to support a wide range of small to medium businesses – regardless of size or turnover.

You will have a dedicated accountant from our expert team who will spend time getting to know your business and its specific requirements so that we can offer a personal service that is tailored to your needs.
