Accountants for marketing agencies

Smith Butler is well-versed in helping small and medium-sized marketing agencies who have needed to outsource their accounting.

We understand the need to offload the financial paperwork so you can focus on the finer details of your industry. Not only that, but when it comes to business strategy and other advice, we can help with that too.

Outsourcing your accounting needs will save you the added pressure of hiring an in-house accountant and provide you with freedom and flexibility.

Supporting your agency is our business

There are many different areas you need to consider regarding accountancy for marketing agencies.

Making Tax Digital

Now the rollout for MTD is well underway, we can ensure you’re registered and compliant. As a marketing agency, you’ll need to consider the VAT implications of providing a digital service for your clients.

We can set you up with MTD-compatible software and ensure your essential documents are filed in accordance with HMRC, as well as prepare and file your accounts throughout the year.

This will become more important when MTD for corporation tax is implemented, so you won’t get caught out by getting ahead and employing our services early.


It’s important for any business to understand where their money comes from and where it goes. By sitting down and creating a cashflow forecast and plan, we can help you keep track of your income and expenses, making sure your cashflow stays positive, and you’re profitable.

R&D tax credits

If you’re looking to make advances in your field, you could be eligible for research and development tax credits from the Government. These breaks can be very beneficial to a business such as yours, so we will start the claiming process and follow it through until the end.

VAT and corporation tax

Filing your necessary paperwork and accounts with HMRC is essential if you want to be tax-compliant. We will do all this for you, within the rules of MTD, and ensure everything is paid correctly and on time.


Balancing your books is the best way to ensure your company’s financial health stays above board. We will make sure everything is well-accounted for, and nothing gets lost by the wayside.
