Helping you to Help Your Clients

The Changing face of accounting.

The accounting profession is going through some major changes.  New technology has driven change, small businesses have more choice and location is no longer a major limitation in choosing an accountant.    With Making Tax Digital HMRC has embraced the new technology and the benefits to it of more regular information from the tax-payer. The new regulations will mean that VAT registered businesses will need to comply by April 2019.

Your practice will be preparing to help clients to comply by:

  • Moving clients to a digital platform
  • Changing the way you work and communicate with clients
  • Concentrating on offering more consulting services
  • Moving away from transactional and process driven services

There are many challenges to overcome:

  • Is your Practice ready?
  • Do you have enough time to give to each client?
  • Do you know the various online software options, their strengths and weaknesses?
  • Do your staff have the right skills?
  • Can you walk your client through set up and training?
  • Would you like to concentrate on explaining the numbers rather than producing the numbers?

Working with us

Having worked in business and within her own accountancy practice, Angela Turton is a safe pair of hands and experienced in what both accountants and clients require.  We can work with you to develop your stategy around MTD and then help you with implementation.

Benefits include:

Time – Setting up a client’s accounting system can take time, especially if it is not a system you are familiar with.  We give you that time back.

Peace of Mind – MTD is forcing your clients to use a digital system, this can be stressful, and the onus is on you to make it happen.  We ensure that it does.

Professionalism – We know how important your clients are to you.  We will act with all due professionalism and adhere to the standards expected by ICAEW.

 Client relations – You can retain your special advisor status with your clients, whilst we look after the detail.

Simplify future work –  We will work with you to ensure that the new chart of accounts reflects the statutory accounts prepared for your client so that future accounts production is as easy as possible

Confidential – All information we become privy to whilst working with you will be kept confidential, whether that is client details or knowledge of how your practice is run.

Security – We are experts in small business accounting systems, not in compliance and we will not be poaching your clients.

Expertise – We have knowledge of many different accounting packages, including Xero, Sage, Quickbooks, FreeAgent, Clearbooks, Kashflow, Pandle and WaveApp and we will always attempt to choose the right package for your client, but if you wish to restrict your practice to one package then we will assist with that.

In one, short conversation, Angela brought calm and sense to my financial life. Angela was able to clearly, calmly and confidently explain everything to me and gave me lots of additional tips and information too. I recommend Angela's services to anyone who, like me, suffers from overwhelm around either finances or technology. Her calm, clear and confident approach helped me to feel that I would be able to master the art of online accounting.

I have known Angela for a number of years in both a professional and personal capacity. Angela has been a colleague, my accountant and a friend. I value her professional opinion, judgement and advice. I can recommend her as a knowledgeable, personable and conscientious business partner for anyone needing a business and accounting expert.

I had the pleasure of working with Angela as a client of hers and she always gave me very practical advice on a number of matters. It was all about telling me how I could achieve certain finance and tax goals I had with my business as opposed to what I can't do which I really appreciated. Not only that, but I found Angela a great sounding board on a number of topics. I would thoroughly recommend employing and/or working with Angela

Having Angela as an accountant for many years was so much more helpful than just having someone who 'did my accounts'. She stretched my thinking to look at long-term viability and was instrumental in helping me shift my mindset from being a freelance consultant to a business owner. Knowledgeable and friendly - highly recommended!
