I came across Certax accounting luckily when searching for a new accountant. I looked up their website and reviews and made contact with Kathryn. I am extremely impressed with their efficiency, helpfulness and friendliness. I would definitely recommend them.
As a small Limited business we were in need of book-keeping and accounting. Certax Accounting have provided that service, timely and with precision. What we hadn't anticipated was the 5 star service, help and advice that Kathryn and her team are only too happy to offer - often out of regular office hours. Over recent years they have, in effect, become an indispensable extension of our business, helping to plan our financial strategy, while we focus on our core business.
Certax accounting was probably the best Google search I've ever done. Kathryn is an absolute delight to deal with polite uncomplicated and understood not only the needs of my business but my needs as a business owner. Kathryn is never afraid to go that extra mile and she always replies so you always feel valued. Would definitely recommend certax and Kathryn with no hesitation.
Kathryn offers a personalised service and always goes the extra mile to meet the needs of her clients. She is totally reliable and knowledgeable and explains complex matters in easy to understand terms. Accounts and payroll are often a burden to the small business owner but with Kathryn on board any potential problems just disappear. We have already recommend her to a number of people who have always engaged her services. Highly recommended.
I had issues with HMRC. From the first meeting with Kathryn I know I had the right person on my side to sort the issue. Kathryn is polite, methodical, persistent and clearly very competent at her job. She listened to my explanation of my situation, asked relevant questions and suggested a course of action. Kathryn communicated with me regularly throughout the whole period it took to sort my issues out, so I knew exactly what was going on and where we were with my case. She always did exactly what she said she was going to do when she said she was going to do it. Not only did Kathryn sort my problems out with HMRC, I was awarded a substantial tax rebate. Her fees are very very reasonable. I cannot recommend Kathryn high enough.

I recently changed my accountant to Certax ,after a meeting with Kathryn as my level of service from my previous accountant was getting less and less yet the invoices seemed to get bigger . I cannot rate Kathryn highly enough her level of professionalism is second to none . She has worked to the agreed budget providing service above and beyond what i would have expected .
The final invoice was a fraction of what i had previously paid . I would recommend Kathryn and Certax to anyone .

I have been using Kathryn Coley, from Certax Accounting (Birmingham South)
Limited as my accountant for the past two years and I have been more than happy
with her services, since I started using her, I have had no issues at all as she is very
On many occasions Kathryn has used her expertise to rectify problems even the
ones caused by my previous accountant… and she also helped my wife with her
business too, at the very last minute.
I don’t think my business would be able to function properly, any more, without her
professional help and continued support. She has been helping me with my two
companies: GT Electric LTD and Solar Midlands Ltd.
She compiled and filed all my annual returns to the HMRC, managed my payroll, CIS
subcontract wages, VAT return and she also always answers any questions
concerning personal tax matter, such us my tenant’s rental and concerning the
annual Self Assessment!
She always goes that extra mile to ensure all the paperwork is filed on time, she is
very punctual and patient (unlike me…) I have already recommended her to a
number of friends and colleagues, and will continue to do so.
Please feel free if you would like to contact me on any of the numbers below, if you
require any more information, I will be glad to assist you.

We have been a client of Kathryn for nearly twelve months now. She is very organised, and always at the end of the phone or email if we have any questions. Kathryn is very thorough in all that she does, and always has a pfofessional approach. We find her very approachable, and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a local accountant.

I have known and worked with Kathryn over the past few months. I have found her to be extremely efficient and thorough and has already saved me a large amount of hard-earned cash. Kathryn explains things in 'laymans' terms to the likes of myself and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her to any business organisation.

I was very lucky to find Kathryn earlier this year when I urgently needed an accountant to compile and submit my Company's first set of accounts. After having initial discussions and quotes from a number of other sources, I was so relieved to find someone who was extremely professional, very easy to deal with and who wasn't going to charge me the earth. I have been very impressed at the conscientious and yet friendly way Kathryn has worked with me as a client, I have no hesitation in recommending Kathryn as a real professional, who gets the job done and who is a pleasure to work with.

Thank you for your swift efficient response and accurate compilation of my end of year books, and on time delivery to HMRC.
The level of service that was given to me was top class, nothing seemed too much effort and you ensured even the smallest of details covered.
I will be recommending your services to friends and clients.

I asked Kathryn to prepare a data analysis report on a private company and also to give me professional advice on the share capital structure of a business. This Kathryn did to my entire satisfaction giving me a number of angles which have enabled me to make key decisions going forward.
Kathryn is not only a pleasure to work with but has a high level of intellect and intelligence. She instinctively works with you, grasping quickly the salient points of strategy and working closely with your personal objectives.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kathryn's superb accounting services which go outside the required parameters of her profession
