DRIVE BUSINESS GROWTH

We use accounts to reveal the challenges facing your business and to help you overcome them.

We are an accountancy firm based in Taunton, Somerset. Our aim is to redefine what businesses expect from their accountants.

Your accountant should be making you profit. Too many find their accountancy spend is a valueless overhead rather than a powerful tool to help grow their business.

We want to see business owners demand more.

Your accountant should make you money.

Redefining Accounting

We’re not a traditional accountancy firm. We’re not happy with ‘do the same as last year’. We’re building a service that gives modern businesses owners the help they need. We want you to get the most value possible from your accountant and we are constantly looking for new ways to do it.

I was looking for something a bit different to your usual accountant, I wasn’t really sure if it really existed. I wanted someone who was on the end of the phone or an email, who was up to speed with what the company was doing on a month by month basis. I wanted a team who I felt were on my side and working as part of my team to support and grow my company. This is what I have found with JP Rata, a friendly professional team who are on my side and are now an invaluable part of my business.

Top-notch service, always at a very high standard or quality, using modern technology and bright employees. We've learned so much working with Jon and the team took us 10 years ahead of where we were.

So much more than an accountant. I am a new business and so also new to having an accountant. I would have no hesitation in recommending J P Rata Ltd. The team are always helpful and on hand to answer my questions or to give me guidance to help with my business by helping me understand the numbers side of things better. They have become an invaluable support over recent months. I thought I needed an accountant to help me with tax and HMRC stuff, but J P Rata provide me with so much more than that and it is reassuring to know they are there for me.

This is how accounting should be done... I’ve been using JP Rata for the last five years, since the early days for them. In the following years their business has grown, thankfully this has not had any effect on the friendly yet professional service they provide. For this reason I would always recommend them for any accounting services.

JP rata have already saved me about 10 days putting together my tax return for my business in just a few hours and they are now continuing to support my business through a detailed break down of the figures and this should guide us with our next steps. A friendly and approachable team with all the skills required.
