About us

Ascentant accountancy services

Ascentant accountants offer a range of accountancy and bookkeeping services for small to medium sized businesses.

Ascentant was founded in 2015 by Kevin Drew, a seasoned Legal Cashier with over 15 years’ experience of working with Legal Practices in London.

Having worked in various accountancy, finance and cashier roles, Kevin assisted with the set-up of the accounts functions for several high profile US Law Firms in the UK, advising on everything from compliance with Solicitors Accounts Rules and Anti Money Laundering to VAT, Payroll and Partner Taxation.

It was while working with some of the smaller UK start-ups that the need became apparent for something different. The need for a flexible, on demand, accountancy service with the ability to offer a range of tailored services to fit your business day to day.

Ascentant Ltd offer a wide range of services to support your business from bookkeeping and accounts, payroll, VAT & Tax returns, legal cashiering as well as business advice.
