What is the process to appoint JLA Accounting as our accountants?

Following an initial meeting, either in person or over the phone, we will provide you with a personalised quote for the services you require. Once you have accepted this we can start our client acceptance procedure. This includes:

  • issue of engagement letter(s) to cover the services you require
  • getting electronically appointed as your agent with HMRC so we can speak to them on your behalf
