Accountants for SMEs

Not just your accountants but your team members.

Many years ago, our founding partners decided to leave their respected Top 10 accountancy practices in order to run their own practice. The ethos of the new firm was to offer owner managed businesses a more personal and tailored approach to the financial and accountancy requirements. They felt that it was important to be able to sit with clients, look them in the eye and really understand their short, medium and long term visions and goals.

A lot of time and effort was spent building up a market leading taxation department which, to this day, remains something that separates us from our competition. Coupled with this, the firm believes that supporting clients’ commercial decision making processes and offering sensible, practical business advice is one of our key responsibilities.

The firm has been built up to being a larger independent in our region through investment into technology and quality staffing, meaning that the accounts production process has been streamlined. This means that our clients benefit from not only a reduction in costs but also time spent with Partners and Managers can be spent not talking about ‘what figure goes where’ but discussing strategy, growth and further future success.

There are clear advantages that come with running a family business, but there are also many personal and organisational challenges along the way which can be particularly difficult in ensuring that family companies survive through the generations.

In the UK, over 75% of businesses are family companies so a large percentage of our clients are affected. We therefore have a great deal of experience in dealing with problems that may arise and more importantly preventing problems before they occur.
