It’s all about cost vs benefit: getting it right from the beginning. We will spend quality time with you at the outset, listening to you and your problems, so that we can help you decide what service you would like from a Guildford Accountant. You will know how much it will cost before work begins. We will help you decide what you would like to do yourself and what you would like us to do. Whether you need a comprehensive service with top level tax advice, or a basic “no frills” service, we will go through some options with you.
We have your objectives in mind, not our agenda. We pride ourselves on being Accountants in Guildford that listen carefully to what you want, and give it to you: not providing inappropriate advice or getting stuck on unimportant details. For example, if you are after maximum take home pay, we don’t reduce one tax just to increase another somewhere else, or charge almost as much as the tax you just saved for tax saving work. If there is a big problem or issue, we’ll proactively contact you and tell you about it, we won’t hide it, or tell you about something less important instead.
We listen and speak your language. Our principal was a successful Physics teacher at secondary comprehensive schools for five years before becoming an accountant. He is well versed in the art of explaining things to clients in a way they understand and need. This art is proactively taught and passed on to all other members of staff. We try hard to be the accountants in Guildford that businesses are looking for.
We understand that a lot of people use an accountant just to save tax. We understand that clients pay a lot of money for accounting and tax services. We have put a lot of effort and resources into being leaders in tax and business advice in Guildford because we recognise that for a lot of clients, it is the access to top level advice that makes paying accountants worthwhile. We take pride in the fact that we are the only accountants in Guildford that we are aware of, where all the senior staff are required to be qualified as both chartered accountants and chartered tax advisers.
It’s what you expect an accountant to be! Having many clients with different services and deadlines is part of what it means to offer accounting and tax services in Guildford today. However, it is surprising how many accountancy firms don’t do this well: missing deadlines, not getting back to people, forgetting appointments… We can handle this all and do it well. In rare cases when we do make mistakes, we don’t go into hiding, but are frank with you and bend over backwards to get any problem fixed asap.
