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

JP Rata are a friendly accountancy firm based in Taunton, Somerset. Our aim is to redefine what businesses expect from their accountants.

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.

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.

Jon and his team have been amazing through out the whole time we’ve had to be closed during the Coronavirus pandemic. They have kept in weekly contact and always contact me when they feel there is something I need to know that could benefit me, keeping me informed of all the government information I needed to keep my business running. Their advice has kept me calm and on top of things. Without them my situation would be completely different. They are brilliant. Can’t recommend highly enough.
