We are accountants working with business owners and landlords who are looking for a better way to manage their financial affairs.

What we do


JP Rata are a friendly accountancy firm based in Taunton, Somerset. Our aim is to redefine what small businesses expect from their accountants, by offering a service that truly empowers our clients. 


We offer a cloud based bookkeeping service called Finance Drive.

Finance Drive uses Xero to provide an up-to-date picture of their business in real time. Clients send us receipts and invoices every day and their bookkeeping records are updated within 48 hours. Quality control and a quick turn-around are fundamental to the success of our Finance Drive service.

We prepare monthly management accounts for our clients on the same tight deadlines as the Finance Departments of large businesses. We can then discuss these management accounts with our clients whilst the information is still relevant and can be used to make important business decisions.

When a business' finances receive year-round attention, year-end compliance services such as tax returns and annual accounts become much more straight forward to provide - reducing unexpected complications and overruns. Expect more from your accountant than low value year-end work, we provide useful information throughout the year that you can use to empower your business.
