First meeting with Buhir was fantastic, very open and transparent, helpful and took the time to guide me through issues and queries that I had. Good use of software too whereby I am able to access all my documents through an online portal rather than have to trawl through my emails for these.

I've made an online enquiry in regards to the Capital Gain Tax and also booked a free call. The advisor (Buhir) called me just half an hour after and patiently answered all my questions giving me some extra advice that will help me to sleep well at night. I will certainly come back to Total Books once I need full-service tax advice.

Amazing online self assessment tax accountant in my local area of Roath.Total Books & Buhir Rafiq have been helping me complete all of my taxes for the last three years.We have had thousands in savings on my CIS personal tax reclaims. Including all of the allowable expenses so I do not have to pay more tax than required.Managed to sort out my pensions refund for quite a few thousand as well.He is so helpful and polite and friendly and I am always welcome.I get a coffee and we go through our problems and he manages to complete my tax returns in a jiffi.Computers are not my favourite thing and I just don't know how he manages to whizz through the keyboard and the screens so much.Its really nice I trust him and the team. I can pop into the office whenever I want and no question is too difficult or worrying.I can call him on the phone whatsapp or just pop into the office in Pengam Green, Splott as required.Thanks very much to the whole team great accountancy firm near me.

I can now get on with running my company safe in the knowledge that I have a professional and affordable accountant by my side.

Having just opened a new business, I was looking for an accountant, which would be able to give me professional advice at prices which I could afford. Total books matched perfectly. I took the time to meet a number of accoutants across the Cardiff area, however Buhir and his team stood out. They offered me tailored services to fit the need of my business, whilst also providing flexbility in terms of payment structure. I could not recommend Total Books highly enough. Furthermore, Buhir went above and beyond, always having time to anwser questions prior to my company being registered with him. Great guy and great company!!

Following a few years of receipt letter from HMRC staying I had underpaid tax and despite settling accounts and arrangeing payment plans, I still received an increasing number of letters informing I owed ever increasing amounts. I contacted Buhir at total books and he undertook a thorough review of my PAYE and self assessments for the past 5 years. Outcome... instead of owing HMRC £2500 I have actually over paid by around £5100 which is being returned.Without Buhir I would still be dreading another brown envelope landing on the door mat.

After a few years off "hands-off accounting" from my current firm the time came to reach out for some independent advice. Buhir conducted a thorough and professional review of my Limited (Ltd) company accounts and my personal tax situation. In the space of a couple of hours I'd learnt more than I had in the previous 4 years, and left with some clear next actions to address before submitting my accounts in January. The whole process was about as friendly and professional as you can imagine. Highly recommended.

I've been using Total Books for about 5 years and found them to be far more helpful than my previous accountants who persuaded me to go LTD company but gave no assistance in what I needed to do. Total Books provided me with some bespoke excel workbooks for entering my numbers and talked me through what I need to do. For the first time I've felt like I have a reasonable idea of how to run a limited company. I find them to be very competitively priced as well. Would definitely recommend them.

Absolutely delighted with the service I was given. I had quite complicated records going back 4 tax years. Buhir and Adil went above and beyond the call of duty, and worked incredibly efficiently. They achieved more in a single afternoon than I had in months trying to deal with HMRC and doing it alone, and discovered even more ways that I can claim back for tax relief that I was not aware of (and I'm pretty savvy!). Highly recommend them if you are looking for a personal tax accountant. Don't look around any further, you've find the right guys here!

I had a 15 minute call with Buhir and I was very impressed!Their packages seem very reasonably priced and they have a lot of experience to deal with all sorts of tax and accounting matters.He was friendly, professional and he answered a lot of my questions then and there!And the more complex ones he wasn't able to answer in the little time we had, he was able to either explain the general process of how he could help with more time, or give me a recommendation of a specialist who could help, or he was able to tell me where to start looking for the information.When I told him I was lined up to speak with another accountant before deciding who to go with, he was very friendly about this and even gave me some tips on what to look for and ask, and said he was fine even if we went with someone else because it was about it feeling right and about the client getting the right help they need - and it felt like he was genuine about this!With how much value I received just from this 15 minute call, with how much he seemed to genuinely care about helping people, and with how easy he was to get along with, I would highly recommend Total Books to anyone!It's rare when someone leaves such a good impression after only a few minutes, that you feel they deserve a review (before you have even started working with them).We very well could be working with Total Books soon...

Amazing online self assessment tax accountant in my local area of Roath.Total Books & Buhir Rafiq have been helping me complete all of my taxes for the last three years.We have had thousands in savings on my CIS personal tax reclaims. Including all of the allowable expenses so I do not have to pay more tax than required.Managed to sort out my pensions refund for quite a few thousand as well.He is so helpful and polite and friendly and I am always welcome.I get a coffee and we go through our problems and he manages to complete my tax returns in a jiffi.Computers are not my favourite thing and I just don't know how he manages to whizz through the keyboard and the screens so much.Its really nice I trust him and the team. I can pop into the office whenever I want and no question is too difficult or worrying.I can call him on the phone whatsapp or just pop into the office in Pengam Green, Splott as required.Thanks very much to the whole team great accountancy firm near me.

Following a few years of receipt letter from HMRC staying I had underpaid tax and despite settling accounts and arrangeing payment plans, I still received an increasing number of letters informing I owed ever increasing amounts. I contacted Buhir at total books and he undertook a thorough review of my PAYE and self assessments for the past 5 years. Outcome... instead of owing HMRC £2500 I have actually over paid by around £5100 which is being returned.Without Buhir I would still be dreading another brown envelope landing on the door mat.

Buhir is an exceptional man in his profession and as an individual. As well as being a certified accountant in Bristol his business consulting skills are of high standard. He has helped me develop my own business through step by step sessions, effectively explaining business ethos and terminology for easy apprehension, in a way that would suit an individual on any level. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a Bristol based tax accountant to get in touch with Total Books and find out more for any of your accounting or business consultancy needs!Management Accountant

We would definitely recommend to others, especially those who are self employed. Thanks for the lunch tip too!

After a few years off "hands-off accounting" from my current firm the time came to reach out for some independent advice. Buhir conducted a thorough and professional review of my Limited (Ltd) company accounts and my personal tax situation. In the space of a couple of hours I'd learnt more than I had in the previous 4 years, and left with some clear next actions to address before submitting my accounts in January. The whole process was about as friendly and professional as you can imagine. Highly recommended.

I've been using Total Books for about 5 years and found them to be far more helpful than my previous accountants who persuaded me to go LTD company but gave no assistance in what I needed to do. Total Books provided me with some bespoke excel workbooks for entering my numbers and talked me through what I need to do. For the first time I've felt like I have a reasonable idea of how to run a limited company. I find them to be very competitively priced as well. Would definitely recommend them.

Absolutely delighted with the service I was given. I had quite complicated records going back 4 tax years. Buhir and Adil went above and beyond the call of duty, and worked incredibly efficiently. They achieved more in a single afternoon than I had in months trying to deal with HMRC and doing it alone, and discovered even more ways that I can claim back for tax relief that I was not aware of (and I'm pretty savvy!). Highly recommend them if you are looking for a personal tax accountant. Don't look around any further, you've find the right guys here!

Total books is a fantastic tax advisor firm! Buhir Rafique, the company owner is extremely capable of understanding the tax accounting needs of your specific industry, and is able to tailor solutions to meet your exact needs. We sat down and he took his time explaining exactly what he is doing, will do do in the future; this allowed to me get a better grasp on the accounting side of my business. I am a soletrader pharmacist locum; Buhir has managed to find government initiatives of VAT accounting to maximise my pay. All work is be done online, my job with regards to keeping track of my taxes is minimal in terms of bookkeeping, allowing me to focus on what is important. I live in the Cardiff, Lakeside area (CF23)- he operates both there and Bristol.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I had a 15 minute call with Buhir and I was very impressed!Their packages seem very reasonably priced and they have a lot of experience to deal with all sorts of tax and accounting matters.He was friendly, professional and he answered a lot of my questions then and there!And the more complex ones he wasn't able to answer in the little time we had, he was able to either explain the general process of how he could help with more time, or give me a recommendation of a specialist who could help, or he was able to tell me where to start looking for the information.When I told him I was lined up to speak with another accountant before deciding who to go with, he was very friendly about this and even gave me some tips on what to look for and ask, and said he was fine even if we went with someone else because it was about it feeling right and about the client getting the right help they need - and it felt like he was genuine about this!With how much value I received just from this 15 minute call, with how much he seemed to genuinely care about helping people, and with how easy he was to get along with, I would highly recommend Total Books to anyone!It's rare when someone leaves such a good impression after only a few minutes, that you feel they deserve a review (before you have even started working with them).We very well could be working with Total Books soon...

Following a few years of receipt letter from HMRC staying I had underpaid tax and despite settling accounts and arrangeing payment plans, I still received an increasing number of letters informing I owed ever increasing amounts. I contacted Buhir at total books and he undertook a thorough review of my PAYE and self assessments for the past 5 years. Outcome... instead of owing HMRC £2500 I have actually over paid by around £5100 which is being returned.Without Buhir I would still be dreading another brown envelope landing on the door mat.
