The growth of DNS Accountants

DNS Accountants (named DNS Accountants in its early days) started as a traditional yet promising tax advice and accountancy practice in 2005. The then one man business developed swiftly into a trustworthy accountancy service, serving clients through own private online accountancy software.

  • In 2007, the practice transformed into a Full Time Accountancy Service and moved to a small office with 2 employees. The passion and dedication of the two spearheads led to the building of a strong core team and acquisition of a vast number of clients.
  • From 2008 to 2012, the company witnessed exponential growth in terms of clients, revenue and office space. From developing a unique customer friendly accountancy and tax service to launching our own cloud-based online accounting software to establishing a new head office in Harrow in North West London, the DNS ship has sailed smoothly in the accountancy domain.
  • The potential of DNS Accountants has been rightly recognized by the business community with our founder Sumit Agarwal being declared as Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awardee in 2012 by the Indo-British Business Forum at House of Commons.
  • 2013 saw DNS Accountants being nominated for 4 awards in The British Accountancy Awards - Independent Firm of the Year South East England; Accounting Technician of the Year (Sumit Agarwal – Founder & Managing Partner); Online Accountant of the Year and Client Software Product of the Year. DNS Accountants was declared Online Accountant of the Year.

Awards and recognition haven’t stopped flowing in since our inception. The company now owns several branches and currently employs over 90 accountants and four Founder Franchisees. DNS constitutes a huge and successful team of tax accountants and chartered accountants in Portsmouth.

Business Scenario at Portsmouth

Portsmouth is a large port city in Hampshire on the south coast of England. A fraction of the city’s employable population works in the Portsmouth Naval Dockyard and the defence sector linked to it. Defence is the city’s largest industry. Aircraft construction is another avenue for the economic advancement of Portsmouth.

The port is a major port of the country specializing in both cargo and passenger ships. New and advanced shopping centers, retail stores, restaurants, and theaters are gradually opening shutters to create more employment opportunities and push the business of the city forward. Being a coastal town, Portsmouth also has an excellent fishing fleet; the underwater fauna is also rich enough to make the fishing industry a booming one here.

Payroll Real Time Information (RTI)

The Payroll Real Time Information (RTI) is an HMRC endeavour aimed at improving the accuracy and efficacy of PAYE. The filing of correct RTI by companies will reduce the need to issue warnings to companies regarding overpayment or underpayment of employees. The possibility of fraud is also curbed effectively the Payroll RTI.

Under the most recent RTI legislature, the salary details of all employees of a company should be approved by a senior member of the company and submitted via electronic platform on the HMRC Website. This information must be filed on or before the date of salary payment to employees. This is a leap from the previous practice of submitting these statistics only once a year.

This unique scheme ensures that there exists no discrepancy between the HMRC’s database and the respective company’s database. The compliance to this new rule will make sure that no government rules and regulations regarding the salary of different classes of employees are violated. Irrespective of his/her stature in the company and salary guarantees, an employee, is saved from the clutches of fraud being committed against him/her by higher paid officials.

The following documents are needed during submission of these details to HMRC over the Internet.


DNS takes care of the filing and information entry to HMRC’s website charging a nominal fee for its services from the client companies.

DNS has opened its services in Gosport, Fareham, Hayling Island, Stubbington, Southampton, and Reading recently. The team members at DNS are amongst the best Contractor Accountants and Tax Accountants in Portsmouth.
