Poor support and slow replies from your accountant

Our qualified chartered accountants, Reading and remote based, can help you

Most businesses come to us when they no longer feel they’re getting the advice and support they need from their current accountant. Their queries aren’t answered quickly, they no longer feel like a priority and there’s a lack of proactive advice on how to legitimately save on their tax bill. Heck, some businesses have even lost trust in their existing accountant as they don’t have the information they need to make management decisions.

We can help you:

Most owner-managed businesses aren’t getting the proactive tax planning advice they need. Meaning they’re losing out and paying the tax man more than they should! Through proactive advice throughout the year, we help business owners take advantage of tax efficiencies, like tax breaks and deductions, so they keep more of their hard-earned money. Whether it’s VAT returns, corporation tax, or personal tax returns, our tax advisers can help to find you savings, and make sure you never pay more tax than necessary (or less than you should!).

As a small business owner, you know that time is money. So, it makes sense that you need to divert your time and attention away from complicated financial matters and into growing your business. At Raw, we understand how valuable time is to any busy business owner, which is why we have a range of accountant services designed to give you back your time through optimising and streamlining your accounting, bookkeeping and tax calculation processes.

For limited company owners, managing finances can be a daunting task. There are payroll taxes to account for, invoices to keep track of, and a myriad of other financial responsibilities. However, our accountancy services can take some of the burden off of your shoulders. We can handle all of the corporate accounting responsibilities of your business and provide you with peace of mind by ensuring that all your financial affairs are cost-effective, compliant, and in-order.

I was in desperate need of an accountant. Was left worried and dropped by a previous company who wasn’t interested in helping me understand what my business needed. Luke is so understanding and knowledgeable he really got to know my business quickly and helped with great advice to get going in the right direction. I have spoken to him on irregular hours because that worked better for my needs and is so supportive. The most important factor for me is that they charge a monthly subscription rather than larger annual bills so is very cost effective for cash flow. I will never be lost again and I’m positive with their support I will continue to run a successful business. If I could give 10 stars I would.

Our previous Accountant let us down & we were trying to find another Accountant when my daughter informed me that a new accounting company was about to open near where she works. I contacted Luke & explained our situation as our Company Accounts needed doing urgently. We had a MS Teams meeting to discuss my needs. WOW so impressed with the Service. Fully explained everything. Willing to answer any queries. Thank you so much.

A friend recommended RAW Accounting and I couldn't be more confident about my tax returns. I'm not originally from the UK and this year was my first filing as self-employed. Luke was incredibly patient with my endless questions, and made the process very simple for us. Highly recommend.

We started using Raw Accounting a few months ago and we couldn’t be happier with their service. The switch from our previous accountant was seamless. We are pleased to say some of our processes such as payroll have already been streamlined to ensure we run more efficiently. However, the thing we are most pleased about is the personal service and having an accountant who genuinely cares. Nothing is too much trouble, and they are always on hand to offer guidance where needed. I cannot recommend Luke and his team highly enough for anyone looking for a first-rate accountancy service.

I’ve been working with Luke and the team at RAW for nearly 2 years now and I’d highly recommend them to any SME business owner looking for an accountancy practice to proactively manage their bookkeeping, payroll and accounting functions. RAW seem to have a different approach that focuses on accuracy, high levels of communication and sage advice - what Luke doesn’t know about tax probably hasn’t been thought of yet! Not only are they highly professional, but they're great people too.

Superlative service. This is a seriously professional outfit. I accept that I am a demanding client. I work long hours so need an adviser who is going to take the stress away and put simply, get things done. Luke Fletcher is that man. Worth every penny.

I've been using Raw Accounting's services for a couple of years now and have been very impressed with the level of engagement and understanding they have. Always available at short notice, very quick to respond and deal with any issue and probably most importantly know their subject matter extremely well. They have sorted out a few tax issues I have had without too much involvement from me, process was simple and the portal very easy to use.

Luke and the team at RAW have been excellent to work with.Since setting up a small biotech consultancy at the end 2022, they have been a source of great support in getting the accountacy basics correctly put in place. From establishing the initial paper work to help get the LTD off the ground, through to quarterly MTD VAT returns, personal / company tax filings, corporation tax and PAYE. Perhaps more importantly for me though, they have provided clear, strategic and pragmatic guidance to help tax-efficently shape the buisness for the near- medium-long term and in line with my future goals. They have been attentive, personable and at times patient with my questions - proposing alternative ways to solve a problem if they can. Ultimately, with their support, I can focus on the day-to-day business, knowing that the acounacy side of things is in good hands.

Raw Accounting have been amazing! I've been working closely with Luke and he has helped with the transition to being self-employed, and clarified how everything could work should the business grow in the future. He's taken the stress out of everything finance related when it comes to working for yourself—from TAX returns to assistance with registering for VAT, as well as countless other bits of advice along the way. Very responsive and understanding of the requirements linked to the industry that I work in. Luke was passed on as a recommendation and I would highly recommend him to others as well. Thanks Luke!
Luke is amazing! As a US-based startup, he provided expert guidance in navigating VAT and ultimately saved us thousands of dollars in unnecessary filing costs. I highly recommend Luke and his team at RAW Accounting.

Raw Accounting are fantastic. I stumbled across Luke whilst looking to avoid the "one size fits all", impersonal accounting solutions that other practices provide. From the beginning Luke has proven to be professional, prompt and incredibly approachable. Getting setup for both corporate and income tax have been absolutely painless. The software they provide is far better than other solutions available, and costs are very respectable. I would not hesitate to recommend Raw Accounting to anyone. If you're an SME looking for a charter accountant, do yourself a favour and give them a call.

I was recommended Luke by a friend when I had mentioned I was looking for an accountant to help me with a new business venture, and am very glad that I followed that recommendation. Luke has been a fantastic source of support and advice and has made the accounts side of our business very simple for us. We receive regular updates that are easy to understand and Luke has a broad understanding of modern day accountancy systems which has a been a real asset. I would not hesitate to recommend Luke and Raw Accounting to anyone looking for a new accountant, whether a new or established business. Thanks Luke!

After recently making the leap from full-time employment to self-employment, I needed to clear up a plethora of queries. Luke was incredibly responsive and explained the start-up process via Microsoft Teams. The explanation was crystal clear and thorough. Would definitely recommend.

I came to Luke with a very tricky tax situation and in a bit of a panic. Right from the outset he made me feel reassured and confident we would get to the bottom of my problem. In the end he saved me a lot of money and did so in a very short time period. He is clearly highly skilled and had an answer for all my questions.Thank you!

Luke was amazing help for me. As a finance novice, Luke was so generous with his time and expertise. He is very knowledgeable and took the time to hear about and understand my business and then explain the relevant tax rules as well as discuss my finance plan going forward. I really appreciate his advice and will be going to him in the future!

Constructive consultation. Multiple option advice discussed which would broaden the business opportunities without compromising the ability to stay focused and deliver the services to be provided. Additional information given in terms of specifically relevant websites and regional authorities to be followed up. Became confident that despite having only given the the company the briefest outline of the proposed business and the areas I required them to cover, they had carried out sound preparatory work prior to the consultation to maximise the effectiveness of the discussion. Would definitely recommend.

Luke completed my personal tax return. He was very helpful and knowledgeable throughout and everything was completed quickly. He was great at keeping us informed of what was going on and the options available to us. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him and Raw Accounting. A super friendly service!
