Don’t worry; there’s a simple solution: here at Nordens we’re all set to make your life easier! Staying on top of your business finances is a great way to review, strategise and plan ahead.

What we can all learn from the Thai cave rescue
... and Apollo 13. When the crew of the space module Apollo 13 suggested that things weren’t quite going to plan and said: “Houston, we’ve had a problem”, the outcome would have been very different if it hadn’t been for Don Arabian. The head of engineering at NASA and an experienced and very capable man, Don refused to accept the inevitable and, together with this team, found a way to fix the problem before the oxygen ran out, and brought…
Could you benefit from a research and development tax claim?
There’s always a good deal of mixed press surrounding tax planning and, often, people aren’t sure what they’re entitled to in terms of claiming tax relief for their business activities. One very positive form of relief that is sometimes missed is Research and Development (R&D). R&D relief benefits companies that work on innovative projects in science and technology. Just as it says on the tin, if you’re researching or developing a scientific or technological advance in your field, this is…
Understanding the numbers
As an adviser to business owners,  Mitch Hahn meets many people who've experienced great success in their business but still don't feel they truly understand their numbers: how they're performing, where they need to focus their time and resources - and generally whether they are on track or not. In this video, Mitch explains the factors that may contribute to this and gives his advice on how to get a grip on your numbers.   If you need help to…

Nordens’ Charity Walk for Great Ormond Street Hospital – update!
As you may already know, we’re proud to be raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), our charity of the year.  For the past few months we’ve been training hard for our upcoming fundraising walk – the 15.6 mile route from our head office in Woodford to our satellite office in Soho! It’s a wonderful walk, taking us along the edge of Wanstead Flats then down towards Stratford and through the Olympic Park, across Victoria Park and into town…
Are you suffering from neophobia?
You know what it’s like when you’ve got a good routine going? It feels comfortable, secure, right? Then something happens that means you’ve got to break from that routine, try something new and, before you know it, you’re suffering from neophobia. Neophobia is an irrational fear of innovation, new situations, places or things. In its milder form, it can manifest itself as an unwillingness to try new things. All phobias are a relatively common type of anxiety disorder which can be treated with cognitive behavioural therapy…
Ask a tycoon: entrepreneurs always have more fun at the start
It's been a while since we featured one of Luke Johnson's columns. This is a superb one that assesses how entrepreneurs are programmed to seek growth - it's the essence of human progress - but it can be hard to keep the same sense of pride and loyalty towards a large organisation.   One of the few advantages of age is that it gives one perspective. When I was a young entrepreneur, my priority was to get rich as quickly…
What does the Audit Team do?
An audit is a detailed review of a company, its financial reports and the underlying records and procedures undertaken within its finance department. Nordens’ audit department reviews and reports on the internal procedures and record-keeping of certain companies, as not all businesses need an audit. For the companies that do, we evaluate operational processes, risk management and compliance with policies and procedures. (Click here to see if your company needs an audit.) The benefit to a company of an audit…
How do you split your beer bill? A brilliant tax analogy
One of our accountants, Ben, was carrying out some research on behalf of a client when he stumbled upon this very interesting analogy in the Telegraph’s “Your Money” section.  It describes tax in terms of beer spend… 10 men go out for a beer once a month and the bill comes to £100. They decide to split the bill in a similar way to a tax bill: The first four men (the poorest) pay £0 Fifth pays £1 Sixth pays £3…

Having worked with Nordens over the last 5 years, not only to look after my annual accounts but they have also provided outstanding professional advice. They have guided me through a Company share buyback with clear and objective advice. We have also been using Nordens strategic services for a couple of years, which has helped bring about significant improvements that exceeded my expectations. With experience of working with several local accountants over my 29 years in business, I’m very pleased with the service I have received from Nordens.

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
