Engaging with an accountant can help to ease the burden of these obligations and avoid late-filing penalties. See our guide “Understanding your company director responsibilities”. Click here to view.
Unlike traditional accountants, we provide a dedicated platform where you have 24/7 access to your company accounts. This is combined with expert support and advice from a dedicated accounting team.

Boox is an excellent accounting firm
BOOX is an excellent accounting firm. They set up my company for me. All I did was to provide the information they need and they did the rest. My business is up and running and my dedicated accountant is very patient making sure everything is done correctly. Boox’s customer service is exceptional and they’ve got flexible payment options. I will NOT hesitate to recommend Boox to anyone who needs an accountant.
