FD Accountants was established in 2012 by the company director, Philip Latala, and was set up to provide clients with more than just the traditional accountancy services.

Having commenced in accounting practice in 1993, Philip qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant with ACCA in June 2000. Leaving practice in early 2001, Philip went on to work in Senior and Finance Director roles in the following industries:

  • Commercial Radio
  • Finance Lending
  • Digital Installation
  • Renewable and Sustainable Energy

Being in senior financial roles of businesses with turnovers ranging from £100k to £36m, and also regularly being a board director in those businesses, has provided for a wealth of commercial experience, and to see things differently from just the normal accountant.

Since establishment, FD Accountants has gone from strength to strength, servicing hundreds of clients, with services ranging from simple tax advice to fully managed accounting services.

In 2017 FD Accountants became members of the Institute of Certified Practicing Accountants (ICPA), ensuring the right level of support and unrivalled knowledge is available so that the best service can be offered to all of our clients.

At FD Accountants we pride ourselves on offering a professional service and making sure that we provide all of our clients with the same level of professional care regardless of the size of their business or their own personal circumstances.

We understand that clients like to have certainty and control over the costs of their business, which is why we like to offer our clients fixed fee quotes for the services they require.  Quotes are annual costs, fixed for a 12-month period and are based around the volume of activity, skill required, and professional risk involved.  After reviewing your needs, you will receive a written quote from us before any work is performed, and to ease your cash flow, we provide the option to pay a set monthly amount by standing order.

What Our Clients Say

One thing we are proud of at FD Accountants is the relationships we have with our clients and what they think of the work we do for them.  Here are some kind words from a selection of our Accounting Clients.

“I have worked with FD Accountants for the last six years…”

I have worked with FD Accountants for the last six years and they have seen me launch as a small business and grow into a business expecting to attract 17,000 visitors this year. They have always been a source of great advice with time to listen and support me in sometimes difficult business decisions. Their support has been very down to earth and easy to implement which is a breath of fresh air in my experience of accountants.

I really believe they are big enough to matter and small enough to care, they have made my journey through the last six years much more successful than it would have been otherwise. As you would expect from an accountancy firm they have kept me legal and compliant with the ever-changing world that is HMRC.

I would strongly recommend that if you need the services of a great accountancy firm that offer great value and a human experience you should get in touch.  I hope to continue to work with them for many years to come and I applaud them for their honest , friendly and very current approach to business.

We have been using FD Accountants for the past 3 years who have always gone above and beyond for us. We started using their services after using our previous accountant for years, and who cost us a lot of money in the end.

We decided to switch to FD Accountants at the start of a VAT investigation as we were just not getting the help and advice needed for the situation we were in and it became apparent that it was largely due to our old accountant. Phil came at short notice and helped us before, during and after the investigation. We now use FD Accountants for everything.  Whenever we need help or advice they are always there to help. We highly recommend FD Accountants to any potential clients.

Since working for I&B Brickwork Solutions Ltd, I have had the pleasure of dealing with FD Accountants and have found their services to be of great help. FD Accountants have proven to be hardworking, trustworthy and knowledgeable. They are also highly approachable and have regularly gone out of their way to support and help our business, something which I can say with confidence they would be willing to do for any other person or company due to the values, work ethic and level of attention to their clients that have been instilled into the company. I would highly recommend FD Accounts to all people and companies.
