I have been in business for a number of years and originally started out with friends and family. Soon after we decided to go our own ways, which left me dealing with accounts and tax, which was an unknown territory for me. At first it felt like a huge burden and left me stressed out. After a few meetings with Simon I felt relieved and top of my accounting and taxation responsibilities. I now know what to do and how to do it. I know what to pay and how to pay it. I am now able to make better informed decisions about my business. I would highly recommend Simon and his team.
Solutions that work
I took the bold move of leaving my regular paid employment and going solo and had no idea on how to manage my finances. I quickly had letters coming in from HMRC and had no idea what to do or how to do it. My original accountant gave me a list of things to do but I found I just did not have the time to do the work I get paid for, marketing, accounts and admin work and felt overwhelmed. After appointing Simon & Co I quickly found a solutions that works for me, I spend less time doing the accounts and admin and more time making money. I know Simon and his team are always on hand to help me whenever I get stuck.
Unfortunately our accountant fell ill and had to retire. We therefore appointed a larger reputable firm locally only to be left hung dry. We had nothing but large bills and little progress. We then decided to appoint Simon & Co and made more progress with them in one month that the previous firm did in 2 years! Luckily Simon spotted a major flaw in some tax planning that was agreed and helped us save considerable sum of money. We are pleased to have Simon & Co on our side.
I decided to change accountants as I needed a proactive accountant that would make me aware of the changes in the tax legislation and how it will affect my business. Simon & Co have helped me make good commercial decisions, my business has grown from strength to strength and is continuing to grow. I recommend Simon & Co.
Excellent to deal with
I tried to carry out our own bookkeeping, payroll, cis returns and VAT returns and quickly found how time consuming and costly it is (penalties for late filing). My previous accountant was difficult to work with as I felt I was spending a lot of time posting information to him. When I switched to Simon & Co I felt relieved, like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Jay is excellent to deal with, very straight forward and easy to work with
I started my own lettings and property management business 5 years ago and have focused on growing. Thankfully business has been growing but I soon found myself unable to keep up with the administrative side of running a business. Simon & Co helped me develop procedures to put me back in control of my business and can now keep track of my business performance. Business Initiative Inside!
Understood my business
I have been self employed for a number of years and have always used the services of an accountant. I wanted an accountant that understood my business and can talk to me in plain English and was pleasantly surprised when I appointed Simon & Co. Straight forward & Simple.
