About Einstein Tax

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."

Albert Einstein

At Einstein Tax we make use of the latest cloud-based accounting software to simplify business admin, save time and reduce accountancy costs.


Many small business accountants charge over £1,000 per year for the production of year-end accounts and tax returns.


At Einstein Tax we believe this is not good value for money and unfairly penalises businesses that can be self-sufficient with their accounting affairs throughout the year. See our services page for details on how we may be able to meet you accounting needs from only £35 per month. 

"A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it."

Dan Devonald   MEng CEng MIET MAAT ACSI

Dan is a Chartered Engineer and AAT Licensed Accountant. Prior to becoming an accountant he was an independent IT contractor for over a decade.  He specialised in optimising Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, and has first hand experience as a client of several of the major contractor accountancies. Disillusioned by accounting firms charging over £1,000 per year, offering very little proactive tax advice and appearing to simply cut and paste client produced figures into year-end returns, Dan saw a gap in the market for a low cost accountant providing straight-forward, efficient tax advice and statutory year-end accounts.

Dan Devonald

Dan has had a passion for problem solving since a child and sees tax planning as the ultimate Sudoku puzzle. There is little difference between the simultaneous equations needed to optimise an engineering system and those needed to optimise an accounting system to minimise tax.  With an increasing number of friends and colleagues turning to him for tax advice, Dan decided to consolidate his accumulated knowledge through formal accountancy training and qualified as an AAT Licensed Accountant. Dan combined his business experience, accounting knowledge and passion for problem solving and Einstein Tax was born.
