How it Works

Handpicked Accountants is an initiative created by Begbies Traynor Group plc – an AIM-listed professional services consultancy delivering solutions for businesses, financial institutions and professional advisers. We have more than 60 offices across the UK delivering a partner-led service to clients; predominantly company directors.

As we don’t provide accountancy, tax, or auditing services, Begbies has worked with accountants to provide added value to our clients and, reciprocally, we have supported accountants’ clients in times of financial distress through expert advice from our insolvency practitioners.

This commercial synergy was the stimulus for launching Handpicked Accountants and represents an opportunity for Begbies Traynor to refer new business leads back to our accountancy contacts.

Having launched in May 2017, Handpicked Accountants is now a powerful and highly visible accountancy directory in the major search engines receiving more than 10,000 hits per month for localised searches such as ‘accountants in York’ and ‘accountants in Hereford’ for example. 

We recognise that the modern day culture of acquiring advice is now predominantly web-driven and the demand for accountancy services online is only going to increase – and Handpicked Accountants is perfectly positioned to service these enquiries by passing on leads to our recommended database of accountancy firms across the UK.

If you would like to be a part of this and open up new business opportunities for FREE, here’s how it works…

Step 1

If your accountancy practice is not currently listed on Handpicked Accountants, you need to submit a join request by clicking 'Join Today' at the top of the page. It’s a very quick form to complete and it will be processed by our Client Services team comprising David and Carole.

Handpicked Accountants is understandably ‘handpicked’ by nature which means once the join request has been processed, a meeting must be created between you and one of our local Partners. We have more than 60 offices across the UK and our Partners regularly travel to meet new accountants – so finding a convenient place and time to discuss your accountancy firm will not be difficult.

If your accountancy firm has shown the requisite desire to join Handpicked Accountants and authenticated its request by meeting with one of our local Partners, you will then be added to Handpicked Accountants. We will need a short, unique description of your accountancy practice including the services you provide and also a company logo. Our writers can help you with this if you require.

And that’s it. It’s a relatively quick and painless process and, in return, you will receive increased online visibility for your business at absolutely no cost. Your accountancy firm’s profile page can be viewed by small businesses searching for an accountant in your area and they can make direct contact with you via email, phone or web enquiry. And it's absolutely FREE.
