Sole Traders in Dartford and across Kent

Leave your taxation concerns with me

Over half the businesses in the UK are sole traders, making up a huge part of the British economy. Working for yourself, while ultimately rewarding, requires a huge investment of time and effort. Much of that time is spent with the financial side of your business – collating invoices and receipts, preparing VAT and tax returns, and so on. Here at Strachan & Co Chartered Accountants, I help sole traders from across Kent, providing a wide range of services. These allow you to leave your taxation concerns with me, while you concentrate on growing your business and your customer base.

I provide all sole traders with a personal service that cannot be matched anywhere in the county. I cover a ten-mile radius around my Dartford office, one that takes in much of Kent and some of the surrounding areas. This includes my valued sole trader clients as far afield as Bexley, Bexleyheath, Crayford, Dartford, Gravesend, Greenhithe, Swanley, and beyond.

Accountant Services for Sole Traders in Dartford and Kent

As your local, accessible chartered accountant, I have much to offer sole traders across Kent. Here is a few of my more popular services…

Personal Accountancy Solutions

Whether you are a tradesperson, a landlord, a freelancer, or another kind of sole trader, you can rely on Strachan & Co Chartered Accountants to provide the service you need, when you need it. I tailor all my accountancy packages to meet the specific needs of my clients. From annual tax returns to regular bookkeeping, I handle it all.


As a sole trader, it is your responsibility to keep a record of all invoices, payments, and remittances relating to your business. This is a legal requirement for auditing purposes. At Strachan & Co Chartered Accountants, I can help you make sense of this, providing a bookkeeping service that lets you see your financial growth on an immediate basis.

Tax Preparation

This is my most popular service among my sole trader clients. Preparing your taxes requires an understanding of UK tax legislation and an eye for detail when performing calculations. Whether it is your annual tax return or monthly VAT returns, I produce detailed reports and can liaise with HMRC on your behalf.


Sole traders are entitled to claim a wide range of expenses against their business. These outgoings are taken off your income and not taxed. Knowing what constitutes a legitimate expense and what doesn’t can be difficult. I help you identify any non-taxable outgoings you might have, including ones you might never have previously considered.

Financial Projections

Getting a loan as a sole trader requires assets you can use as security or evidence of your current and expected income. While past tax returns can help with the former, for the latter you need an accurate projection of your earnings. I can create this for you, helping you achieve the financing you need.

As an experienced chartered accountant, I understand the importance for sole traders to know in advance how much they are paying for my services. For this reason, I charge a standard fee based on the particular accountancy solution I provide. I charge no hidden extras, nor do I clock-watch. I complete every job in a timely manner.

I have been trading in Kent since 2005, assisting sole traders with their tax and other accountancy concerns for over 15 years. Furthermore, I have been part of the industry for even longer, with over three decades’ experience as a chartered accountant. I am a Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, ensuring exceptional service every time.

I operate from my office in Dartford, making me well-placed to assist sole traders across Kent and the surrounding area. I welcome clients to visit me here, or I can meet with you elsewhere within a 10-mile radius. This covers any location in Bexley, Bexleyheath, Crayford, Dartford, Gravesend, Greenhithe, Swanley, or even further afield.
