We pride ourselves on being friendly, helpful and approachable, as well as totally professional. We realise that you could come to us for a variety of reasons – you may find accounting daunting, expensive in terms of your time, or just plain boring, and we would look to find a solution tailored to your current business needs. We offer a full range of services, but you can in effect “pick & mix” the services which would suit you the best.
We work with many ambitious local businesses including sole traders and limited companies. Three years ago I created a strategy to further develop the company by creating a specialist team to provide services within education in and around London and Essex.
We also have a dedicated tax expert who used to work for HM Inspector of taxes, and is therefore perfectly placed to know the most effective methods of communication and negotiation.
Our clients tell us that they like our efficient service, and appreciate the way we are willing to go the extra mile to assist them and their business.
We are members of, and regulated by The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (which is not always the case these days) who ensure their members maintain the highest standards of professional conduct and competence.
Our first consultation is free, giving us an opportunity to explain exactly what we can do for you, and you a chance to see if you like us! Hopefully you will.
The firm has been in practice for 35 years, and for the last 25 years we have been based in South Woodford, a vibrant area which benefits from good transport links.
