What kind of accounting services do you provide?

We offer book-keeping, payroll, management accounts, VAT, limited company accounts, corporation and personal tax return services at a very reasonable rate without compromising quality and service. We quote fixed fees so you're accountancy fees will never be more than what you expect. You can pay as and when the work is done by us or monthly depending on your individual circumstances.

What do you love most about your job?

I love being able to assist small businesses and watch them grow. I have several clients who have grown from small sole traders working from home (or in their garages!!) into prospering financially sound Limited Companies.

I am also proud of how my own business has grown purely organically through client recommendations which is why we have a reward scheme for our current clients who recommend us. You can receive 20% discount from your annual tax return fee if you recommend us and the client takes up our services.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have worked in Accountancy for over 18 years, both in practice and in industry and have gained a significant amount of experience in several different sectors. I qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant whilst working in industry and in 2012 decided to start my own accountancy business which was my ultimate career goal. The business is growing from strength to strength by client recommendations and we have a client base of 100+ sole trader, partnership and limited companies whereby we offer book-keeping (at a reduced rate to normal accountancy services), payroll including pension administration, VAT, CIS returns, Management Accounts, Annual Accounts and Tax Return services.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are the accountancy practice for you if you're looking for an accountant who you:

* can get hold of regularly,
* can ask questions and get responses within 24 hours or sooner,
* can give you advice on what business expenses you can incur to be most tax efficient,
* works in a modern world - using electronic means of sharing data and information safely and securely,
* and most importantly, who you can rely on for a professional and timely service at a fair and reasonable cost to your business.

Why is it so important for businesses to hire a great accountant?

Hiring a great accountant is so important to any business. You need to ensure that your finances are kept up to date in order to ensure that your business is profitable and also for tax purposes, i.e. VAT and payroll. Having an accountant that provides you with the services you need that you can 100% rely on and also who takes the time to get to know your business to offer support is invaluable.

It is more often than not much more cost effective to outsource your payroll, bookkeeping and VAT rather than paying employee costs as there are so many add on costs with employees such and employers NI (13.8%) and pensions (minimum 2%).

The title 'Chartered Accountant' and the letters ACA or FCA, indicates that the person has undertaken a minimum of three years in-depth training, passed a series of examinations in financial management, auditing, business strategy and taxation as well as committing to continuing professional development.

As opposed to specialising in tax returns, a Chartered Accountant instead will focus on providing accurate records of all financial transactions for an individual or business. Consequently, this type of accountant is more likely to be found employed in a more commercial capacity.

Hiring the right Accountant for your business may take a bit of time. Who you choose to look after your accounts is vital, especially if you have plans to expand as you will need to look for someone who will get more involved in the financial side of things the bigger your company gets.

  • Research - Start with the company’s website and look at the accounting services they offer with an eye on what you might need in the future. If you choose an accountancy firm that doesn’t have the expertise to help you as your business expands, you will end up needing to finding another accountant.

  • Create a shortlist - Create a shortlist of three or four firms you
    think are a good fit and arrange face-to-face meetings with all of
    them. In addition to the fees, you need to find out about the
    services they provide, as well as their customer services.

  • Fees - Some Accountants charge by the hour while others operate on a fixed-fee basis. You need to be clear before selecting an Accountant for your business on how their fees are calculated.

  • Qualifications - It is important to ask questions about the
    qualifications and experience of the people who would be dealing with your accounts. You need to know that you could work with them, trust that they are on your side and are continually looking for ways of
    adding financial value to your company.

  • Accounting software - You will want to check that any systems you use are familiar to the accounting firm. Your current method of financial reporting may not be the most effective one for your business and they may recommend systems that can do it better.

  • Financial jargon - If you are not an expert on finance, your Accountant needs to understand this and be able to communicate with you in a clear and concise manner.

You can be confident that any of the Accountants listed on Bark will be a safe pair of hands for your finances.

Before you choose an Accountant, you could ask to see examples of their work, read testimonials and ask to see references of past work they have done.
