It all began a few years back with an idea. And that idea was to make accountancy useful for small businesses.
Traditional accountants seemed so completely focussed on producing statutory accounts, which tended not to be of any use to the small business owners who were paying for them.
The whole process seemed designed to be an exercise in compliance, and missed an incredibly valuable opportunity to do something useful with all of that carefully scrutinised information.
This practice wanted to do accounting differently. To try to make the financials forward looking rather than backward looking, to look beyond the balance sheet, to set entrepreneurs up to succeed and fundamentally to help small businesses grow.
Their proposition seemed to strike a chord with the small business community, and under the impressive leadership, before long, they were getting more than 100 enquiries a month from entrepreneurs keen to do things differently.
Their London office went from strength to strength, which then followed with further offices opening across the UK.
Technology has been important to them from the start, and after being short listed for the Accountancy Age start-up of the year, they were one of the first UK firms to be recognised as a platinum Xero accountant.
