After working in the accountancy profession for over 25 years, I set up SME Tax to help small and medium enterprises (SME’s) navigate their way through an increasingly complicated tax system. I have worked with small business owners across all different sectors for many years and, as a small business owner myself, know just how much work, energy and passion goes in to making a successful business.

Whether you need help with your end of year accounts and tax returns, management accounts, VAT returns, CIS, payroll or just general business and tax advice, I am here to ease your burden so that you can concentrate on growing your business.

I work with Limited companies, partnerships and the self-employed as well as private tax clients. I have a keen interest in both corporate and personal tax and closely monitor changes in legislation so that the advice I give is up to date and relevant.

I pride myself in forging close links to my clients, the majority of whom I have worked with for many years and have recommended me to their friends and colleagues. Not everybody “speaks finance” and so I take time to talk with my clients in a language they understand rather than hiding behind jargon.

What we can do for you

A first class client service

A first class client service

Our comprehensive range of business support and personal taxation services has helped many of our clients to grow and develop their businesses over the years.

The challenges created by both Brexit and the Coronavirus pandemic have shown the importance of a close business relationship built on trust. We do not charge for every telephone call, letter, and email, but instead work on a fixed fee basis. We believe that this encourages clients to talk to us about any problems, challenges, or financial decisions so that we can come up with the right plan. Our vision for SME Tax is to see ourselves not only as your accountant, but as your business partner.

Our aim is to provide a professional, personal and effective solution to all of your day-to-day accounting and taxation needs. We use our expertise to complete this work quickly and accurately, and our experience to explore opportunities and identify potential problems before they arise.

James Moreno has been looking after my books and giving me some sound advice for 15 years since I started my business. Extremely professional in all the dealings I have with him

Dave Halpin

Director Gasworks (London) Ltd

Aside from being a pleasure to work with and a great accountant, James is very knowledgeable and I have relied heavily upon his advice. He has helped us tremendously through all of the key stages of the life of our company- from starting up to going VAT registered and taking on our first employees. Now that we have a few years behind us the peace of mind we have from having James behind us frees us up to get on with running the business and getting the work in.
