Why you wouldn’t use us?

We hope you do, but...

You see, we know how our clients benefit from our services and many tell us each year.

We tried to figure out why you might say "no" to our services. After a lot of thought, these are the reasons we came up with.

  1. You already have an accountant. We appreciate this and if they are offering everything we are and you are totally happy with them, we wouldn't want to upset your arrangement. However changing accountants is easy and involves just one letter from you. Your existing accountant is not allowed to charge you for providing any handover information.
  2. You believe our fees are likely to be high for what we're offering. We offer fixed fees linked to the value of what we provide. We're not always the cheapest but John Ruskin defined value as... "It's unwise to pay too much, but it's also unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it's well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough money to pay for something better."
  3. You've just had your accounts done and don't need or want to think about it until next year. We can't over emphasise the importance of strategic tax planning at an early stage, not crisis driven advice. Ideally you do tax planning before the year even starts but after that the earlier the better.
  4. You're just too busy and don't need the hassle of changing. We can sympathise with you. Changing banks involves a bit of hassle but the savings often far outweigh the hassle involved. However, changing accountants is far less disruptive than changing banks and the savings can be substantially greater.
  5. I'm still waiting for my accountant to complete last year’s accounts. If you've been waiting for a long time you could be at risk of missing certain HM Revenue & Customs and Companies House deadlines. We guarantee to turnaround your accounts within 8 weeks of receiving all information from you. We will also make the relevant submissions correctly and on time to avoiding penalties and tax investigations. This means you'll receive your final accounts quickly, allowing you plenty of time to make important decisions and plan for the year ahead.
  6. We can't change accountants, until our business accounts year end. Your business pays tax on profits at its year end. Therefore you need to change accountants in advance so that we can assess if any tax savings can be implemented before your year end comes around. We will conduct a thorough check of your accounts and advice where and how we can reduce your tax bill.
  7. I have been with my accountant for many years and they are the only ones that understand our business tax affairs. All businesses benefit from a fresh pair of eyes from time to time. Especially, when new practices, procedures and systems that your current accountant may not have knowledge of, can be applied to improve your business. We will conduct a thorough assessment of your business and make recommendations to improve cost-effectiveness and tax efficiency. We will also help you source and implement any products, services or systems that we recommend.
  8. You just don't believe we can deliver on everything we're offering. All we can say is that as accountants, you'd expect us to be a bit analytical, which is true. As such do you really think we would offer you something we couldn't deliver on backed up by our guarantee.
