We have now listed over
150 (690 as of 25th April 2019) accountants websites on our blog ranging from sites for very small practices right up to national accountancy practices. With an estimated 20,000+ firms of accountants here in the UK and with most of these having a website of some shape or other we have only really scratched the surface in our attempt to list accountancy websites for accountants throughout the UK.
Having looked at many sites now it is interesting that the most successful sites seem to be more than just a single page (although there are many such websites out there) and follow the principle that people buy from people and also that people are looking for help when they visit a site – this help can be something as simple as looking for someone to fill in a tax form right through to someone who is looking for a specialist service such as accounting for foster carers, audits of FSTE100 firms or even accounting for the new academies that are springing up around the country.
By focusing on what the visitor is looking for and how the accountant can help them rather than what the accountant does it makes the visitor feel that their interests will be looked after – and having photos of the senior staff on the site also lets the visitor put a face to a name on the initial contact.
Another advantage that many sites have is that they have a lot of factsheets, resources and calculators on the site – some sites seem to lock the fact sheets meaning that you have to sign up to view them (and thus give your name and email address) while others give the information away freely. There are, of course, advantages in both of these methods, by asking the visitor to sign up the accountant gains some contact details, by giving the information away freely the visitor can see the quality of advice being given and there can be a subconscious thought that “I owe this site something as they gave me something for free”.
If you are an accountant looking for a new accountancy website in the UK you have several options, you could build a site yourself; ask a local designer (or a client) to build a site for you; or you could use one of the firms that specialise in accountancy websites – there are a small handful of such firms in the UK and include totalSOLUTION (who are linked with Mercia and Accsys Digital Ltd) and PracticeTrack Online amongst others.

There are many firms that offer to build websites for accountants here in the UK, of these the vast majority are web designers that will build websites for anyone that happens to come along, this means that today they are building a site for a cleaning company, tomorrow for an accountant and the day after they are putting a site together for a playcentre. While this may seem that it doesn’t matter we would ask if having your professional image handled by such a firm is such a good idea.
The other alternative is to use a specialist accountancy website designer, these will understand the need for a professional look and will probably have the systems set up behind the scenes to allow you to add features like budget news, tax tables, business information, fact sheets, calculators, newsletters, secure document storage and other useful information to your website. By adding these items to your site you are presenting a professional image and increasing the likelyhood that people will visit the site.
Two of the premier designers of websites for accountants in the UK are Mercia totalSOLUTION and Practice Track.
totalSOLUTION is a complete website service for UK firms of accountants. They specialise in building websites for accountants and offer a comprehensive range of services suitable for accountancy firms without a website and those who already have one.
