I qualified as an Accountant in the late 80ís having worked in an accounting practice in Edinburgh (FFA, FAIA, FFTA).

In 1992 I left and moved into a career in IT, supplying Accountancy practices with solutions for Accounts Production, Tax and Practice Management systems.

In 2003 I decided to move back into the Accounting profession and formed First Base Accountants.

We provide Accounting, Tax, VAT, Payroll services on a fixed fee basis. Also provide consultancy services such as business planning, tax strategy planning, IT advice.

Currently we are providing accountancy services to over 300 business clients. In 2014 we joined the adminex Group, dealing with all the accounting requirements of UK subsidiaries of international businesses and providing UK businesses with a reliable network of associates across the globe who can assist with overseas set up and ongoing business compliance and advice.

  1. Hello. We are looking to expand to the UK and would like to offer the employees that we hire there employee benefits (insurance, private medical insurance etc...). Do we need a take on an independent financial adviser? I've tried to approach a few of them but they can't give advice to a non UK company. What do other startups do? Thank you in advance Question from Leetal Gruper on 23/08/2017

    My advice would be for the employee to arrange the appropriate cover and then you pay on their behalf.
