We're accountants for small businesses in in Chelmsford. For just £99 per month you'll get just the service you need, sorted for a super low price. From micro businesses, and one-man bands up to those with small teams, we’re here to help you. Unlike other firms who say they are small business accountants, we actually won’t put a limit on how small. You’re never going to be overlooked. We’re not secretly spending all our time helping whale-sized companies whilst small businesses, earning £25k - £500k, line the bottom of the barrel. You’re not just our bread and butter, you’re our sundae with a cherry on top.
Diverso have given me back precious time that I would have previously spent chasing our old accountants which can be better spent elsewhere. They make life easy, are always there even if it’s a stupid question and adopt the same attitude we do - a business is what you make it. Keep up the good work!

We moved to Diverso after having numerous failed accountants in the past. They talk to us like normal human beings and don't try to complicate matters. They are responsive to any questions we may have and have provided an incredible service to us across all of our businesses. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Diverso have handled our accounts for over 4 years now and they offer a high quality, efficient, value for money service. We particularly like the subscription-based support. Their bookkeeping / accounting tools are simple and intuitive. Even during the pandemic, general support and accounts were all available on time. The extra support that many businesses needed I am sure went down well and is a testament to the extra mile that Diverso are willing to go to help their clients. A true 5 Star Service.

The Diverso Team has been supporting me and my business since the very beginning, and I couldn't be happier with the great level of service provided, the quick response time to all my queries, and the fresh approach they give to accountancy. They have even referred my business to their clients which is a win-win! I couldn't recommend these guys highly enough! 5-star all around for me, thank you!
Claudia Tinnirello, Sophisticated Cloud
I set up a new start up business last year and took on Diverso as my accountants from the beginning. They have been unbelievably supportive and helpful, clearing the fog that comes with a new business venture. They have not only given me the confidence I needed from an accounting perspective but have provided me all the tools I need to manage the business finances efficiently in today’s highly digital world. Tools like Xero, HubDoc and Soldo are now perfectly integrated and used by me daily thanks to these guys, this coming from a complete technophobe is quite an achievement. Professionalism and knowledge aside, they are also really nice people! Could not recommend them highly enough.

Diverso are amazing! Such a great business that consistently deliver great service. We've worked with Diverso for over 10 years and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

No rambling phone calls, small talk or time wasting. We don’t use big words to trip you up or make you feel small. We’re all here to get the job done. We’re modern accountants. Diverso promises expert, professional accountancy and bookkeeping, without any of the pretences.
When you’re a small business, every penny counts. Trust us, it’s not been too long since we were one ourselves. We are committed to keeping prices as low as possible. We won’t charge you by how much you’re making, how much we reckon we can get away with, or anything like that, it’s just a simple, flat rate, all in.
We’ll help you make the transition to simplify (or modernise, depending what you’re using) your software. So far, Diverso has helped so many customers cut out the cost of overcomplicated software that’s just not built specifically for small business accounts.
Accounting is complicated, especially where you may be changing over firms, legacy issues or it might just not be something you have encountered before, especially if you’re a start up. Because we’re so committed to being the best small business accountants in Chelmsford, we have an ever-growing resource centre to help you. Our experts are also available to answer any specific questions you have - just fire them our way.
The beauty of bookkeeping software and the internet? You don’t have to be local to use Diverso. Although we’re based in Southampton, we have hundreds of clients based all over the UK. To be perfectly honest, there’s very very little reason that you’d ever need to drop in and meet your accountant these days. In fact, avoiding in-person meetings gives us the time to make sure everything you actually need is sorted. We’ll still send you reminders and still provide you support when you need it, just preferably over email. Don’t worry, if you still really want to tell us about the weather, your Son’s birthday party, or how Precilla across the street is looking through the curtain again, you can.
As a client, you’ll be appointed a Client Partner. It’s them who will be your main point of contact, will look after you day to day, answer any questions you may have, and be responsible for your end of year accounts & returns.
Within reason, absolutely anything! Anything business-related, be it a Mortgage Application, Business Rates, Rent Reviews, Cash Flow Forecast, Capital Gains Tax Advice, Marketing, Staff Issues – we have experience with most things business-related – use us as part of your team.
No. Some of our clients we’ve never met face to face. We embrace technology and the web completely and run with a lot of clients over email, phone & video call entirely.
Yes, because we do it all for you. All you need to do is tell them you’re switching to us. We then contact them for all your business/tax details we require.
Yes. No. Well, maybe. We’re most likely the UK’s only true subscription-based firm of accountants. This means absolutely NO surprise bills, and absolutely NO big bills at the year-end. However, we can’t deny that the majority of our time might be spent preparing your year-end accounts and returns. Therefore, if you join us part-way through your financial year, we might require a catch-up fee. This will be no more than three monthly payments and will only ever be the case if you join us and you’re very close to your year-end. Of course, we’ll let you know when we first speak, and we’ll quote and invoice before we start any work to avoid any surprises.
No. Otherwise we’d be out of business! To avoid this happening, if you’ve passed your year-end already, we’ll always charge a one-off fee to take care of last year’s accounts and returns. It’ll be cheaper than our monthly fee times 12, and we’ll always quote and agree this in advance.
No problem, you can cancel. An easy, all-in monthly subscription doesn’t work for some businesses. We have no tie-ins, so if you’re not happy, you can cancel at any time with just 30 days notice.
In English please! And we’ll return the favour. We promise to only ever use small words, not hit you with jargon to try and seem clever, and always, always try our best to explain things in a simple way you’ll understand.
The absolute best way to communicate with us is by email, to your Client Partner. We’re pretty good on email and almost never miss anything important. Our standard response time is 48 hours, and within 72 hours for more complex questions that may need research, or a serious thinking cap.
Our service works best because we’ve worked so hard to be super-efficient. A big part of achieving this is managing our time. That’s why we don’t use an office number. If you really feel you need to chat to us, you can book some dedicated time with your Client Partner, any time.
Your Client Partner does have a direct mobile number you can use in an emergency. However, no one has ever died because their bank didn’t reconcile.
If an issue is urgent, state so in the subject of an email (with the details too), and you’ll be surprised how quick we come back to you.
