Beyond accounts:

facing your financial demons




From tax rate hikes to national insurance changes, financial rules seem to shift like a desert in a storm. Simply staying on the right side of the law can be a proper headache.

And that’s without even thinking about making smart business decisions that don’t harm the planet.  

It’s enough to baffle even the smartest SME owner. But our business is to know all the financial stuff inside out. 

And because we care about the people around us and the planet we live on, we’ve also got an eye on sustainability, helping people and doing the right thing. We’re a bit different to your average accountants.

Of course, we offer general accountancy, payroll, tax advice, book-keeping and audits. All delivered with our trademark plain-speaking Yorkshire friendliness.

And we also offer a service with a difference: we call it ‘financial direction’ – but think of it as having a helpful, insightful, informed financial director on your team. All with an eye on what’s best for people and planet. 

Facing your financial demons: Conquering the
issues you’ve been avoiding

We’ve all got financial blind spots – the stuff we ignore, constantly pushing to the bottom of the to-do list. And then, when it’s suddenly screamingly urgent or simply too late, we kick ourselves for not tackling it earlier.

And there’s nothing we sweep under the carpet more than planning for death. We just don’t want to think about it. 

In fact, we can save ourselves a whole heap of heartache – not to mention taxes – by facing up to it. It’s not like any of us are going to live forever – and we all want to protect the people we care about at home and at work. And it’s not even difficult. You just need a bit of planning time and a good advisor. 

Discover our simple solutions – including the ones you might not have thought of yet.
