1. LETTER TO SWITCH ACCOUNTANTS

You feel great about joining Accountants of Kent; next you will send a disengagement letter (you can use our template) to your current accountant advising them that you will be switching to us, and for your current accountant to provide us with any requested information. Within this letter you should also confirm what work you expect your current accountant to complete to ensure your statutory obligations are up-to-date such as financial accounts and tax returns for the year gone, and any VAT or payroll submissions etc within the notice period. You can email this letter to your current accountant with us copied in.

2. PROFESSIONAL CLEARANCE LETTER

We will email your current accountant requesting a professional clearance. This explains to them that you have contacted us Accountants of Kent as the new accountant to represent you, and if there are any professional reasons why we should not accept the appointment. The email will also request copies of any accounts, tax records, tax returns and any information we need from the former accountant, and for them to directly supply us accordingly.

3. REGISTERING WITH ACCOUNTANTS OF KENT

Once you have signed the Accountants of Kent engagement letter (supplied to you before joining us), we will then do an anti-money laundering check as required by UK law by using an electronically supplied scan of your passport or drivers licence, and with a recent bank statement. Once complete, we will sign the engagement letter too, and contact you regarding the next steps.
