These are important because they will demonstrate that the tax accountant is credible. Certified tax accountants include Chartered Accountants. For example, ACA or ACCA. Tax-specific qualifications include the Chartered Tax Advisor (CTA) and Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT). These individuals have proven competence and experience in the tax field. At Taxd, your personal digital accountant has been built by experienced, certified tax accountants.


Specialists are tax accountants who deal with one specific section of tax law, such as capital gains tax or inheritance tax. This means that they can address any specific needs that you may have. By harnessing the power of technology, the Taxd personal digital accountant is an expert in all areas of the self assessment.


Location can be important, but COVID-19 has certainly accelerated the move to digital and remote interactions. More accountants are collaborating online. Location really depends on what suits you best — whether you want to see your accountant in person or whether you are happy with meeting and collaborating online.


Price is essential, as you want a service that delivers real value to you. Accountants can be expensive and a Self Assessment can be completed for free through HMRC online. The right accountant will not only ensure that your taxes are accurate and compliant, but they will help you to alleviate the stress of filing.
