Starting a business can be both exciting and scary – early enthusiasm can sometimes blind people to the potential pitfalls later down the line.

We can help people either transition from employment into self-employment, or work with them to start a business in the right way; with expert advice, support and planning for the future.


  • I went to the Tax Shop at the beginning of 2012. Within no time at all Matt had looked through my accounts and suggested accounting changes to help my business grow & save money. Service from Matt & his team has been extremely efficient & first class. There have never been any hidden costs. It is one less worry of running a business knowing that my accounting is in such capable hands

  • On returning to the UK after working in Australia for six years I wanted to set up a consultancy business and to develop an associated website to help promote it. Not having much of an idea of how to go about this, I approached Matt and his colleagues at the Tax Shop and Web Shop in Hythe. A couple of meetings later I was up and running with a company registered and a website designed and live. One year later the business is going very well and the great set up services provided by Matt and his colleagues have been matched by the on-going accountancy services they provide.
