About Einstein Tax

"The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax."

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 £50 per month.

Dan is a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Tax Adviser (CTA), Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP) 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 high fees and delegating much of the work to less qualified team members, Dan saw a gap in the market for a low cost accountant providing straight-forward, efficient tax advice and statutory year-end accounts.

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.  Dan is also a qualified mortgage broker and financial adviser (DipPFS).  This makes Dan uniquely qualified to provide holistic advice on your business and personal tax and financial affairs.
