How long have you been in business?

We’ve been operating as a team of chartered accountants for the last 75 years. Our company is well-established, with some of our clients working with us for over 40 years. This is something that we’re really proud of because we’ve been able to form lasting relationships with our clients. As a result, we’ve built up a reputation for being honest, transparent and efficient.

Will my account be handled by a single person?

At our accounting firm, each client is designated an individual accountant who handles their account. For larger companies, such as international businesses with multiple branches, we might allocate a team of accountants. This will be led by one main accountant who’ll oversee all procedures. We’ve found that having one main account manager and adviser helps to form long-term relationships with our clients, as they build up trust with their personal accountant.

Which accounting system do we need to use?

We use QuickBooks, as we’ve found that it’s one of the most reliable and user-friendly accounting programs. In the past we’ve used Xero and Sage, but personally, we prefer to work with QuickBooks. It’s really helpful in recording and tracking transactions in a way that’s visually appealing and easy for our clients to understand and use. It’s also popular with small businesses, who form a large part of our client base. So many of our clients come to us already with some experience of working with QuickBooks.

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.

The AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification is the minimum level of qualification required for most kinds of accountancy. To become a chartered accountant, you need to obtain higher level qualifications such as the ACA, ACCA or CIMA, which will allow you to become a chartered accountant.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and view reviews from past customers as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas for the types of services you need.
