Why choose us?
ESB's offers tailored services including book-keeping, tax preparation, independent examination, probate and VAT returns. Our cloud-based Xero software is suitable for VAT businesses, non-VAT businesses and individuals, and is fully MTD (Making Tax Digital) compliant.
We have solid knowledge of how analysis codes work and can help configure yours to avoid any tax or VAT-related errors. Not only do we help you get to grips with calculations, forms and deadlines, we identify possible tax reliefs and business schemes that could help minimise your tax bill and save you money.
We have a proactive approach and like to encourage tax returns to be done at the earliest opportunity to avoid a last minute rush before the deadline. What's more, if you're due refunds or credits, the sooner you submit your return, the sooner they can be returned to your bank account.
ESB Accountancy has been helping businesses with their money matters for the best part of a quarter of a century. Clients using our tax and accounting services are, for the most part, local to Gloucestershire and the South West, although we do also look after businesses further afield in the UK. They're typically small businesses, property rentals and charities, but we can support anyone who feels we're the right fit for them.
We have a particular understanding of charities and churches, which have their own set of tax and accounting regulations to comply with. Probate and inheritance tax are also within our area of expertise if you need help in winding up an estate.
We also have a dedicated payroll division, ESB Payroll, that provides outsourced services for organisations throughout the UK.
Whatever your business needs, we're just a phone call or email away. We're happy to talk through your situation and find a solution that works for you. And you can be assured of our continued support if you engage our services.
'The approach of ESB is highly professional and the guidance given impeccable. They understood the differing levels of expertise shared by the trustees and always pitched their advice accordingly.'
'Their service provided has been exemplary on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level. When anything came up nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble. ESB were always at hand to sort out our questions. We have found ESB to be effective and always professional when dealing with our small cleaning business, and would definitely recommend their service.'

'ESB has acted as our accountants for over 12 years, during which time we have needed different aspects of ESBs expertise, including forensic accounting and assembly of information for probate returns. ESB has wide experience across all aspects of business and personal financial affairs. Hence we retain ESB as our advisers and accountants and fully recommend the firm.'
