Short and Sons are Staines based Tax Accountants for Sole Traders, Landlords and Small Ltd Companies. 


Our mission is to offer outstanding service at fair fixed fees.


We are proud to have close to 150 clients on our books with many repeat customers and inbound referrals. Our client base is growing every month with people from all walks of life. We are pleased many have left 5-star reviews for Short and Sons on Google. 

We always aim to complete every transaction with integrity, competence, and confidentiality.   

Short and Sons emerged after experiencing the time

and stress personal tax returns cause every year to

Sole Traders. Personal tax can be complicated to

organise, time-consuming to learn, and challenging to

understand. If you have a busy lifestyle, it may not be

possible to keep up to date with the latest tax advice,

and that's where our expertise can help. 

Whatever business you are in, we can help you keep better records for HMRC and claim all the allowable expenses. We can offer you a free and simple to use storage solution for your receipts if you need to become more organised. 

Our first-hand experience of being self-employed, a director, and a Landlord, gives us the advantage in minimising your personal tax or corporation tax and helping to organise your data.

For bookkeeping of small Limited Companies, we recommend FreeAgent Software because it is clear and very cost-effective. If you bank with Natwest, RBS or Mettle (a new challenger bank and part of RBS), the FreeAgent subscription can be FREE!

We are based in Staines-Upon-Thames, near Heathrow, but we can work with clients throughout England by working remotely and using cloud software.

Many of our clients are combinations of:

  • Directors

  • Self-employed

  • Landlords

  • Pensioners

  • Dividend recipients

  • CIS workers

  • PAYE Workers

  • Contractors

  • Trust Income Beneficiaries

We have many Landlords that use our service in conjunction with their pension income, and we have many Licenced London Taxi Drivers. We have a strong understanding of both markets.

Our clients are kept up to date via our emails and our Useful Information page. We are continuously updating the posts to help our clients save money and learn about changes which could be affecting their tax health. If you wish to join our email updates, please click here.
