Des, trained as a Chartered Accountant in PWC and obtained a wide range of post-qualification experience there before leaving in 1979 to set up his own firm. This firm was a general practice set up to meet the financial services requirements of small/medium-sized owner-managed businesses. Initially, Des looked after the accounting/audit/tax areas of responsibility, together with advising clients in relation to life/pension/investment matters. In subsequent years, as the practice grew, he widened his experience and expanded the range of services available through the firm to include insolvency and forensic accounting.
Isn’t it just larger businesses that need an accountant?
Of course not, even the smallest business can benefit from advice on ways to minimise tax and manage their accounts. If you prefer, we can handle all of your bookkeeping, regular management accounts and VAT returns on your behalf. The added benefit of us being involved is that having prepared the books it makes the final accounts much easier, saving time and keeping costs down.
Working with an accountant is an added cost to any business. However, the cost should be offset by the value they add. We work closely with our clients to achieve their goals. By getting to know you and your business well, we can tailor what we do specifically for your needs and your strategy, thereby adding value.
Just as every client has different requirements, each job will have a different cost. However, we believe that we should be able to save, or make, our clients more than we cost them. Additionally, we can make arrangements with clients to agree fees in advance of starting a job, so that you know up front what your costs will be.
If you want to keep your own accounting records, then that is fine. If you need some help then we can give you some training. Ensuring that you understand the best way to prepare your accounting information makes it easier for us to complete your accounts or tax return. If we do this for you then you can concentrate on running your business.
Sometimes it helps to have a fresh pair of eyes look at your business. We will listen to you and firstly understand the history of the business and then how you want to develop it. We can carry out a “healthcheck” of the operating systems, management and financial reporting in place; advise on any matters arising and recommend any actions required. All designed to match up with your goals, which we established at the outset.
Our firm provides clients with both the skilled staff and range of services of a larger practice while maintaining the personal contact found in small accounting firms. You can easily reach any of our staff, who will always provide the practical, straight-talking advice our clients deserve.
