Why choose Metsons?

Local business

Metsons has been based in Meopham since 2002 assisting clients with accounts and tax.

We have helped many clients over these years and work on the basis of recommendation.

Our accountancy website can be found at www.metsons.co.uk.


It is rare to find an accountant who can also offer probate services.

As accountants we work with HMRC in all areas of our work.

We can also complete any outstanding tax returns for the self employed, buy-to-let landlords etc.

Free initial meeting

We offer a free 30 minute meeting to discuss your requirements and answer your questions.


We bring together probate and accounting knowledge.

As accountants, we are specialists at processing financial and tax information.  Because we can deal with financial and tax issues efficiently, we reduce our costs to the estate.

Dedicated contact

At Metsons, accountancy clients have always benefited from a dedicated point of contact.

We aim to provide a personal service which larger businesses struggle to offer with frequent staff changes.

Fully insured and regulated

We hold full professional indemnity insurance to cover probate services. Our professional indemnity insurer is Travelers Insurance Company Limited, of 61-63 London Road, Redhill, Surrey, RH1 1NA. The territorial coverage is worldwide excluding professional business carried out from an office in the United States of America or Canada and excludes any action for a claim brought in any court in the United States or Canada.   We are insured for £550,000 per claim.

We are regulated by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (equivalent to the Law Society).  If you are not happy with our service you can complain to them and the Legal Services Ombudsman and access the ICAEW’s Compensation Scheme  if you have suffered a loss.

Each client has its own separate client bank account, where applicable.

Local office

With an office in Meopham, you can drop paperwork off directly to us and avoid sending it in the post.

Other providers and solicitors may not be so conveniently located.

We are available for face-to-face meetings rather than telephone/email support only.
