Rigorous training is followed by ongoing CPD to ensure that we are up to date with all the latest regulatory, tax, and software developments. When your accounts are prepared by Chartered Accountants, people such as funders and lenders are more likely to trust them.

Cloud based

Our practice is online, using accounting and other software that enables us to be accessible to our clients anywhere. Let us help you into the cloud so you can discover its advantages.

Pragmatic Approach

All of us have significant experience working within, setting up, and raising finance for co-operatives and other social enterprises. We are not detached professionals; our support is practical, relevant and appropriate.

The DetailsHow we work with you.


  • 1: Meeting and planning

    Meet with you – free initial meeting to discuss what your needs are and what you hope and expect from the relationship. Whether this is pure compliance – jumping through regulatory hoops – or helping you create, manage and understand your financial information so that is is useful for you and enables you to do do what you are best at. We can agree deadlines, costs, what you need to supply and what we need to do when.

  • 2: Management and follow through

    We set you up on our online systems which ensure that all deadlines are adhered to and work is managed properly. Tasks are assigned to members of our growing team. We want to work closely with our clients so that you feel that we are part of your team. All work is reviewed and we communicate regularly with clients via phone or email.

  • 3: Regular contact and advice

    We aim for regular contact so that you consider the regulatory, tax and other financial aspects of what you do before important decisions are taken. No matter where you are we aim to meet you face to face at least once a year to discuss ongoing service provision. We are excited to be a part of what you do and to be there helping to make it happen.
