Accountants Ely

Based in Ely, McIntyre Stuart work with small to medium sized businesses across Cambridgeshire, East Anglia, the Home Counties and London.

We are experts in Making Tax Digital, which aims to bring all your accounts and tax returns onto one online filing system for a fast, efficient service.

Small Business Accountant Ely

Small businesses are often stretched for resources. Often, no more than a handful of employees are running the show and it doesn’t always make sense to hire an in-house accountant. Why not save the time, money and energy of recruiting in-house by outsourcing your accounting?

With McIntyre Stuart you can rest assured that your financial obligations and deadlines will be met. Having access to expert accountants means you won’t waste hours of time researching how to stay compliant – we’ll take care of that for you.

We’ll provide a dedicated account manager who will take responsibility for all the accounting work you want us to take care of. As a specialist small business accountant we can work as part of your extended team to ensure your business is kept in the loop.

All our accounting can be tailored to suit your business needs and we provide a hassle-free, seamless service. We work with a range of clients, from sole traders to medium sized businesses, and many of our clients have been with us for over 20 years.

We also specialise in construction accounting Ely, as we understand the construction industry is unique and complex – projects could last for months, or you could be an employer and a contractor all at the same time.

However, we do not just work with clients in the construction industry, we work with a diverse range of SMEs including hospitality, care homes, shops, florists and nurseries.

Whether you need to free up time to run your business or you want to make sure you’re doing everything by the book, we are here to help get all of your accounting in order.

How to get started

We offer all prospective clients a free consultation to get to know your business and your financial needs. As experts in our field with over 25 years’ experience, we’ll provide commercial advice to ensure your business can thrive.

    Maxing Tax Digital

    McIntyre Stuart are experts in Quickbooks’ desktop software, having used it since 2004. We are now advanced certified Pro Advisers on Quickbooks, the HMRC-recognised Making Tax Digital accounting software. This software is specifically aimed at small businesses, which are our main customers. Our speciality is working with small businesses and construction companies to help them get their taxes correct, and provide them with the best possible bookkeeping and accounting services.

    What is Making Tax Digital?

    Making tax digital is a government plan that aims to make it significantly easier for businesses and individuals to stay organised and on top of their taxes. With aims of being the most digitally advanced tax administration in the world, the HMRC’s Making Tax Digital scheme is their first step to improving the current system. This is meant to make the whole process:

    • A lot more efficient
    • More effective than the current system
    • And easier to use, making it easier for taxpayers to sort their taxes the right way

    This new method will become compulsory by April 2022, so contact us today to learn how we can help you get on board sooner rather than later.


    We work on a contract basis. Once agreed, fees will be fixed for 12 months and payable by a monthly standing order. An invoice will be issued to you at the beginning of each quarter for the next three months’ payments. The service can be cancelled by giving at least one month’s notice before the next invoice is due.

    All in all, it is a very easy process to move to a new accountant. Our team will contact your current accountant for relevant information such as past tax references and issuing you a new letter of engagement.

    Our Ely accountants are fully qualified and certified QuickBooks advisors. Along with this we are also Making Tax Digital pro advisors, which is the method of tax, set to be compulsory as of April 2022.

    Our team of accountants, based in Ely, do anything from bookkeeping and accounting to tax returns and payroll services. Contact us today to get started.

    No, we work with a range of small and medium sized businesses across Cambridgeshire, East Anglia and in and around London.

    We set up our accounting firm in Ely in 1992 and have been working ever since. Some of our clients have been with us since our starting days and continue to work with us now.

    Yes we can! Our friendly, professional team can work in our office or at your business premises, depending on what suits you best.
