The best way to explain what they do and what a lovely company they are, is to show you!

What we say about them: 

Lynda has been a lovely client to work with. She was originally referred to us via our good friends Adam Dawe of John Davies Financial consulting.

She was looking to buy the business from her employer.  We assisted with the initial due diligence, negotiation of the buying price, apportionment of assets and goodwill. We liaised with her solicitors and eventually after many delays including Covid 19, the business was hers.

She has done a tremendous job of elevating the business since she took control and has many fresh ideas to maximise the business offering and ultimately, it’s profits!

We have taken care of the daily processing of the business transactions using Xero and have linked the bank account to it. This has enabled us to take responsibility for the bookkeeping. Lynda does not need to worry about this aspect of the running of the business, and we ensure all deadlines are met for VAT and annual accounts.

Out team offer peace of mind in terms of compliance, but also review her management accounts throughout the year and prior to her year end to ensure we have some proactive tax planning too. Lynda also has taken advantage of the 9 month review service we offer, and it has proved very successful. 

I believe Lynda has great potential to grow her business model and potentially add additional outlets and expand – we will be there all the way! 

It has been a pleasure to work along side Lynda for the last 4 years, and the staff also enjoy the relationship we have build up between all of us. – John

What they say about us:

Best Accountancy were recommended to me by another client of theirs. I had no clue where to start with anything to do with VAT/ Expenses/ Payroll the list goes on.

Although I had ran Coffee and Cream for 10 years before taking the plunge and making it ours, I knew I had to find the right accountant and that’s where John and his wonderful friendly team stepped in and made everything less scary!

I just carry on running the shop knowing that everything else is taken care of. There is always someone readily available to help and explain with any quires I do have and trust me that’s a lot! 

They are there every step of the way on this journey with us and I would wholeheartedly recommend Best Accountancy to any start up business.  – Lynda
