Making the Digital Move, or Upgrading your capabilities

Making Tax Digital is a key part of the government’s plans to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs.

HMRC’s ambition is to become one of the most digitally advanced tax administrations in the world. Making Tax Digital is making fundamental changes to the way the tax system works – transforming tax administration so that it is:

  • more effective
  • more efficient
  • easier for taxpayers to get their tax right

Friendly, Professional Accountants

At Tide Accounting, we look to become a friendly, approachable partner to your business. We value businesses of all sizes and give everyone the same level of professional accuracy, responsiveness and flexibility to ensure that our help gives your business the financial data it needs to work efficiently.


From the outset, Tide Accounting has been an accounting specialist, with our original financial accounting services expanding through experience, qualifications and new staff.

We can provide you with both year-end accounts and monthly or quarterly management accounts for both limited and unincorporated businesses.

You may have a requirement to monitor your business monthly or quarterly or you may want to make changes to your business and need up to date financial information regarding recent events rather than after a twelve month period.

Most importantly you need to have a clear understanding of these financial statements and accounts.

We realise that each client has different needs and our services are client driven, therefore we provide as much assistance or as little throughout the year as you require.


We can provide an entire bookkeeping, VAT and accounting service for small and medium-sized companies. While we are based in the New Forest, we work with companies across the UK in a friendly, professional manner to suit each client.

We are experienced at compiling accounts using Sage software, Excel spreadsheets or manually.

Payroll Services

Tide Accounting offers a full-service payroll function, from our in-house team, producing payslips, monthly reports and year-end on line filing.

We can provide weekly, fortnightly or monthly payroll for companies with 1 – 200 employees including sole-traders, partnerships and Limited companies.

Our sister company Bridge Training, is your first port of call for software and finance training at any level – Bridge Training is a Sage Business Partner as well as an approved training provider for IAB courses, as well as Xero financial software.

Software Training

If you wish to keep the day to day running of your Accounts in house then we can fully support you with that process.

Our sister company, Bridge Training Solutions is a Sage Accountant Partner and provides Software and Stationery, Training and support on all Sage products. We can help you organise Sage Classroom Training and we can also come to your workplace and train your staff in-situ with an entirely customised program based on your specific requirements.

Tax Consultancy

With professional Tax Accounting Services, Tide Accounting can help you achieve better control over tax accounting on a monthly and annual basis and allow you to increase your time spent on the more strategic aspects of your business. We provide company, partnership and sole trader tax computations and returns.

We also realise the need for tax planning and for clients to pay no more tax than is necessary. Our team is professionally qualified and work with an eye for detail and accuracy in a friendly, professional manner.
