About Us

Good value, award-winning, great technology AND personal service – no compromises

Aardvark is all about doing what we know and doing it well, so we focus on what’s important to our clients when it comes to money; value pricing, friendly knowledgeable people and simple, effective technology. But if you’re looking for a small business or contractor accountant, don’t just take our word for it – take a look at our Google reviews to see what our clients think. We’re also the proud winners of the Best Contractor Accountancy award from this year’s Contracting Awards!

Who are we?

A small but perfectly formed team of business accountants, we’re proud that the Aardvark team consistently punches above its weight in terms of service levels – just take a look at our google reviews! We keep things simple, so all our clients get a direct line to their dedicated Personal Accountant, FreeAgent software to keep track of finances, and tax advice tailored to their needs. Choose from a fixed monthly fee package or select the services you need from our ‘build your own’ menu.

Aardvark operates as an independent business within a small group of other accounting companies, with a 25 year heritage. We like to think that this gives our clients the best of both worlds – the personal service and specialism of a small business, with good value ‘in-house’ extras if they’re needed.

We love welcoming new clients to Aardvark – it’s easy to join and we’re easy to work with. So put the kettle on, give us a call and let’s talk – we’re all ears.

Why ‘Aardvark Accounting’?

We’re often asked about our name, and the truth is that ‘Aardvark’ was a result of a brainstorm in the pub after work. As a group of experienced accountants, we had a very clear idea of the business we wanted to create but hadn’t really thought about a name. We wanted something simple and friendly that was easy to remember and would stand out in the crowd. We joked that something beginning with Aa would at least get us to the top of alphabetical directory listings, and, a few pints and a sketch on the back of a beer mat later, Albert the Aardvark was born.

Named after Einstein, he’s somewhat more approachable and perhaps a tiny bit less clever than the genius physicist. Our Albert also represents our core values of being value for money, personable and clever. He’s become our mascot and even gets us to the top of those listings sometimes.
