How our Accounting Service Works

 

 

Better than the rest!

The way we work is better than using either a traditional Accountant, or using cloud Accounting software alone.

Accountancy is complicated. It seems bizarre to us that so many Accountants just give their clients a piece of software and then expect them to do all the leg work while they check in every now and again.

So our processes mean that we do all the heavy lifting, while you get on with running your business.

You can use our app, or just send us your paperwork in a Freepost purple envelope. Either way you’ll be getting a multi award-winning service that doesn’t leave you spending hours faffing around with software or numbering your receipts.

Tech meets people

The dangers of too much technology

Technology can be absolutely brilliant. In fact, we use our very own technology to help provide our clients with our service. We use a suite of technology including much that we have developed ourselves, to make us super efficient and keep our costs down for our clients. What we don’t do is make our clients use technology themselves (unless they want to!).

Challenger banks and many software companies would lead you to believe that simply hooking an app up to open banking, or letting an AI bot categorise your receipts is enough to get your taxes filed. And in many ways it can be – after all, you can technically file whatever you want with HMRC and Companies House.

It takes up to 7 years to become a Chartered Accountant

The big question of course is whether that information is correct or not.

Most of our clients are not Chartered Accountants. And so for most of our clients, knowing what is and isn’t a tax deductible expense, or how to deal with depreciation or capital allowances, is not something they have the time to learn.

And quite frankly – you shouldn’t need to! That’s why Accountants are here.

The old adage in reporting is ‘rubbish in, rubbish out’. Roughly translated – your report is only as good as your data.

Are you absolutely sure you want to let your bank account automatically file your returns? Didn’t think so! Let us do it instead so that you can sleep easy at night.

Looking to Switch Accountants?

As a small business owner, freelancer or contractor, spare time is precious. Switching your accountant may not be a priority and often get pushed to the bottom of the “to-do” list. Switching Accountants with Mazuma is easier than you may think.

Of course!  You will be allocated your own Accountant, who will always deal with your accounts and tax as well as any ongoing questions you may have.
