Yesterday, Mitch, Joe and Tham took a road trip in the sunshine down to Tenterden in Kent, the Garden of England! We’re telling you this because if you’re thinking of choosing a new accountant and are worried that we’re too far away from you, we’re not.
They weren’t skiving off work, but visiting clients in that area. Because it’s really no problem for us to visit you if you can’t come to us. We’re happy to travel to see our clients at their offices, workshops, studios, galleries, warehouses, factories, beach huts, on set or in nearby wine bars!
Or, if you can make it into central London, we have lovely offices right in the heart of trendy Soho where we can buy you a Skinny Decaf Caffe Marocchino with whipped cream and marshmallows – or whatever it is you drink! So if you’d like to get closer to us, call us today on 0208 530 0720 and let’s make a date!
Well… did you hear it?? Mark was interviewed live on national radio! If you’re a business owner, you probably know about the difficulties gaining finance from banks. National media has covered this a fair bit recently, reporting how small businesses struggle to raise money to expand. Mark released a press statement throwing a different light on things – he claims that owners of small businesses don’t need to approach banks; they can build their businesses slowly and steadily using controlled cash flow techniques. What Mark basically said, is that “we work with organisations who provide finance so, if the company is viable, there is always an affordable alternative to the banks.”
This was picked up by a UK radio station who demanded an exclusive from our frontman!! Fame at last!!
They said it really loud, they said it really clear – on the radio, whoa-oh-oh, on the radio…. (I’ll be singing that all day now…!!)
Mark’s joined the loan panel of the East London Small Business Centre (ELSBC). We all know he runs a successful accountancy, tax and strategic planning company in Woodford, full of happy happy staff, but did you know he also has a past that includes one or two failed businesses? Who’d have thought it?! It just goes to prove that if at first you don’t succeed… Right?
Our happy happy team! (Ok, it's not exactly us - but we ARE that happy!!)
Because he knows how it works from both ends (!!) ELSBC has appointed him to evaluate business plans from start-up and expanding companies, to decide whether to lend them finance. So if you’re based in Woodford, Wanstead, Ilford or anywhere else in east London, and you haven’t had much luck finding funding (that sounds funny), we can point you in the right direction.
And if that’s not for you, we can help you raise the finance you need in traditional and non-traditional ways. After all, we don’t just juggle your figures – we love helping businesses to grow. See how we can help you!
Really pleased to announce that Joe has passed his latest Chartered Accountancy exams!! He is now officially proficient in Financial Reporting. So if you would like to know more about your company’s operating performance, position and funds flow, Joe will happily explain it to you in plain English without any technical terms or accountancy jargon. And don’t forget he can also tell you about tax planning, PAYE, VAT and how to beat the odds at Vegas!
This good news brightened up the office in a week where we’ve all been mourning the sudden and untimely loss of Tham’s computer. It most recently belonged to Sam – we like to share the love – but in its heart it was always Tham’s…
So if you’d like to console Tham or Sam, or congratulate Joe (Yaaay!!), give us a call.
