    Why choose Black and White?

    We’re different from standard accounting firms and that’s exactly what we’ve intended to be from the start. How?

    When we start working for you, our team’s aim is to know as much about you, your business and what you define as personal and professional financial success. We then agree with you an action plan with achievable and measurable steps to take you from your current situation to the situation you want you and your business to eventually be in.

    We’re a genuine partner to you and your business. And underpinning that partnership is accurate and timely financial and operational recordkeeping.

    We strongly encourage each of our clients to take up our bookkeeping service or to implement online accounting and bookkeeping software into their business.

    That’s because the up-to-date information you get from either service means that you know more about how profitable you are, whether you have enough control over your cash flow, and which bits of your business are working better than others.

    From this accurate up-to-date information and from the reports which are created using this information, better business decisions are made.

    What’s our role in your business?

    • We’re here to help you plan growth that’s affordable manageable, and sustainable;
    • We show you how to manage cash during exceptionally busy times;
    • We teach you cash preservation and cost cutting techniques when revenue is subdued;
    • We help arrange your business finances in such a way that you and your family can draw a significant income from your business which does not threaten its viability; and
    • When the time comes to take your business to market, we prepare your business for sale and we’re there during negotiation through due diligence right to completion day.

    Every business is vulnerable to internal and external forces. To help you succeed, we make a point of letting you know what the strengths and weaknesses that we perceive are in your business on an ongoing basis.

    We help you spot opportunities and threats. We’re a proactive partner to you and we’re certainly on your side but, to do our job well, we keep a sensible distance too so that we can maintain our objectivity and see the bigger picture.

    That’s the Black and White difference.

    Tax accountant Lymington

    We charge a fixed monthly fee for our services. You can choose which of our services form part of your service agreement with us. If you later need to use a service which does not form an initial part of your fixed fee arrangement, we’ll agree a price (fixed ongoing or ad-hoc) with you in advance for the work.

    When we meet you for an hour’s consultation, we’ll send you a list of the services we believe that you would benefit from and gain the greatest value from.
