What We Do Better

To see the detailed services we offer, please view our services.  What sets us apart is the way we provide these services. In particular, we add value to your business through our use of information technology and our networking.

Information Technology

We are early adopters of new information technology, particularly where it adds efficiency to us and our clients.

We have automated all of our backroom procedures, leading to a virtually paperless office, with integrated practice management, accounting, taxation, and company secretarial software. This ensures all client information is accurate and immediately to hand. We operate a secure virtual private network so all this information is available outside the office also. in the recent past we have added to this to improve our client interaction and free up client time.

These facilities include:

  • Online Accounting. Our clients’ book-keeping is maintained in the “cloud” so that we both have access to the same information, anytime, anywhere.
  • File Sharing workspace. Every client has access to a dedicated, secure workspace, where we can collaborate on work and make historical documents (financial statements, tax returns, etc) available.
  • Digital signatures. Our clients can approve documents electronically, using state of the art security and encryption.
  • Electronic invoicing. Linking to our secure payments page, clients can pay invoices easily, by funds transfer or credit card.

These facilities reduce time spent in meetings, waiting for documents in the post, waiting for returned telephone calls and other non-productive time. They ensure both clients and ourselves have immediate access to the same information, eliminating confusion from differing versions. To further reduce wasted time, we offer:

  • conference call facilities;
  • video-conferencing; and
  • remote access to client computers, by prior agreement.

This ensures we both spend our time productively, concentrating on growing clients’ business.

Networking

We have invested large amounts of time in networking, locally, nationally, and internationally. This ensures if we cannot provide the solution to a client problem, we are confident we know who can. This greatly helps our goal to be our clients’ trusted adviser. To gain an understanding for our level of networking, please see our key people.
