Testimonials

“In addition to keeping score and telling me where I was Andrew helps with useful forward planning. His view is that businesses need to get things done, done right and then get on with making a living; he engenders this attitude into his staff too! As my industry requires two returns a year to my regulator and the returns must be made in a very short time frame, this attitude is of great help”

Alleyn Thomas – Dax & Davies Ltd, Mortgage and Protection Advisers. October 2012

 

“I would wholeheartedly recommend AJR and Co to anybody looking for a professional, personal service delivered by a team that understands what makes a business tick and cares that you flourish and succeed”

Peter Whates – Gemtrioli Limited. October 2012

 

“Rocked up, ran in, reeled off a brief two years ago.  You guys carried me as I grew my biz and nurtured the official bits that bored me stupid.

Now I can get on with doing what I do best knowing it’s like phoning home and talking to caring parents if boring stuff appears. I love yoooooo!”

Andrew helped me with the start up of my consultancy and has completed my annual accounts for the past 7 years. He is always willing to offer advice and has taken the pain out of tax forms! Even when I leave my accounts until the deadline, he is always prompt and professional in the service he and his team offers”

Case Studies

A local retailer came to us with an idea to start a new cafe business. We advised on how best to structure the company, suggested clearer ways to present the financial information in the business plan and helped create cost recording and bookkeeping systems.

A house building company approached us for advice on appealing an unexpected VAT bill for £200,000 following a refurbishment project. Through advice and negotiation we were successful in reducing the penalty by around 90%.

A logistics company came to us on the recommendation of an existing client. Their business was taking off but in-house accounting systems were struggling to cope. Deadlines were not always met, leading to HMRC & Companies House penalties. We advised on new systems and took over responsibility for payroll and taxation.

Freak weather conditions affected greens on a golf course but the claim was resisted by insurers. After we took up negotiations all but £3,000 of the near £40,000 claim was met.

During a review session, an existing client asked for advice on dealing with a disputed £250,000 claim from a supplier. We scrutinised the claim closely and on the basis of the information we presented, the bill was reduced to an agreed £80,000.
