I hope you find some useful information on this site. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales ("ICAEW") and hold a Practising Certificate from this Institute. I have run hundreds of seminars on starting up in business and helped several thousand people start up in business (or decide it was not for them!). I have co-written several books on the subject. I provide focused help around business strategy and assist my clients to meet their accounts and tax obligations. The firm Allan Smith Accounting and Tax Limited is a member of the ICAEW Business Advice Service. Clients include designers, consultants, research scientists, authors, engineers and freelancers and typically have a turnover ranging from £50,000 to £2 million.
