Bookkeeping is just the beginning

We're a first-class UK Qualified Chartered Accountancy firm. But much less boring than that sounds.

You may think you don't need an accountant in Dubai. But when you want to attract investment, secure a bank loan or eventually sell your business, you need real accounts. We've held positions at global organizations such as Saatchi & Saatchi, Deutsche Bank and PricewaterhouseCoopers. And now we're using that experience in Dubai to help small and medium-sized businesses like yours realize their full potential.

Yes, we'll do your bookkeeping, and we're very good at it, but we'll go much further. Always on hand, we'll get to know your business inside out and become your partner in helping it grow with our passionate, professional approach.

Here at The Accounts Dept. we believe that only when you understand the numbers, and use all the information they provide, can you effectively plan for the future.

So don't wait for an audit to tell you that you should have been doing things differently. Get us going on your accounts, and start making the best decisions for your business today.

What kind of Accounts Department do you want?

If you like the thought of having us around each month, we offer –

Brilliant bookkeepers: Allow us to translate your numbers and empower you to make better decisions for the future. Have us work at your office, or enjoy our takeaway service. Either way, you'll end up with accurate accounts you can understand.

A head honcho for numbers: If you've already got a bookkeeper, we can act as your Chief Finance Officer or Finance Director: we'll review your accounts and go through them with you each month. And we'll always be on hand to answer your bookkeeper's questions.

If you only want us from time to time, we can –

Transform your existing spreadsheets, bank statements, and box of receipts and invoices into a genuine set of accounts.

Restructure your P&L to extract the most useful business information from your accounts.

Help you change or update your accounting system, and assist with transferring the accounts to the new system.

Get your accounts ready for an audit or valuation, and liaise directly with the auditors or valuers. We don't do audits or valuations, but we know people who do.
