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

Having a great accountant is essential for any growing and ambitious business. Not only do you have the assurance that your business will negotiate the legislative nightmare associated with running a company in the UK but more importantly a true business partner, someone who you can call on at any point to bounce ideas of and understand the implications of any decisions you make.

Traditional accountancy firms tend to focus on the pure assurance elements i.e. Statutory Accounts, VAT returns, Payroll, Self Assessment Tax returns. At Firefly we do all of this utilising the latest cloud based systems to maximise efficiency and reduce cost but do so much more. We provide a solution that adds true value, partnering with you along the way and giving you access to an experienced blue chip Finance Director to help you with the day to day running of your business.

What do you love most about your job?

People. Businesses are not numbers on a spreadsheet or in an accounting system. Working with ambitious individuals to understand their needs and provide options and services that allow them to thrive and grow gives me the most pleasure. Over the last two and a half years we have worked with a number of businesses that have started from small beginnings and grown exponentially.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I spent 16 years in large listed and venture capital backed businesses heading up large finance teams and know the value that can be delivered by commercially savvy finance professionals. From running efficient finance processes, building teams to acquiring and selling businesses as well as delivering one of the largest FTSE 100 listings in the last decade I have seen it all. The importance of this experience is often overlooked by SMEs with finance activity being seen as a necessary evil. Traditional accountancy practices do not offer the level of experience, breadth of knowledge and business partnering you would find in a FTSE 100 business. This is what I want to bring to UK SMEs ….. FTSE 100 calibre finance for ambitious SMEs.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a Finance & Commercial Director with over 16 years experience in global FTSE 100, Nikkei 225 listed and Venture Capital backed businesses. Proven track record of delivering large scale finance and operational transformation projects across the UK, Europe and Asia. I was a key member of the senior team responsible for delivering the largest LSE IPO of 2015 with Worldpay and the youngest UK board member in the history of NSG Pilkington.  Before establishing Firefly Finance Solutions, John worked closely with KPMG and Deloitte deal advisory teams on a number of restructuring projects across the UK.

I love working closely with business owners and building relationships is critical to success. We are different because we really are interested in the clients ambitions and aspirations and we tailor our solutions to add the most value possible. Yes we do all of the stuff a traditional accountancy firm does but we do so much more. We want to be a part of the clients business not just a faceless accountant they hear from once or twice a year around key statutory deadlines.
