    Personal and friendly accounting services

    When you choose us as your Portsmouth accountant, our aim is to make sure that all support and help is delivered to you by a dedicated accountant and that they cultivate a deep understanding of you, your business, and your personal and financial circumstances and goals.

    However, one of the benefits of dealing with a team of senior accountants and bookkeepers rather than just dealing with one is our collective knowledge and experience. If your accountant believes that one of their colleagues is in a better position to help, they will bring that colleague in to work on your problem or your opportunity.

    Free meeting with us for the hour

    Let us come and meet you at your premises for an hour to find out more about you, your business, and your personal and professional financial goals. Alternatively, if you want to visit us at our office for a meeting, we’d be very pleased to see you. To book a date and a time, call us free on 0800 140 4644 or email us at [email protected].

    Portsmouth small business accountant services

    Small businesses owners like you in Portsmouth benefit from the advice and guidance a Black and White accountant delivers. That’s because we understand that, like all other small businesses, yours will have financial and operational challenges unique and important to them.

    For smaller businesses, money is always tighter. That’s because you and your team have to work with fewer resources available to you in comparison to a bigger business. This makes it more difficult to preserve and increase the cash you have in the bank. In addition, workloads are often heavier and there are often not the systems in place required for you to efficiently issue and collect on your invoices.

    A key factor in better small business management and higher profitability is to hand as much of the technical, accounting, and financial work to a motivated team of accountants who understand what you want from your business. Get in touch with us to find out which of your tasks would be better handled by us so that you can focus your attention more on making sales, looking after customers, and managing your business effectively.

    For help, support, and guidance with your small business, call us free on 0800 140 4644 or email us at [email protected].

    Cheap accountant in Portsmouth

    If you’ve searched for “Portsmouth cheap accountant”, we may not be the cheapest and we’re certainly not the most expensive.

    Our pricing policy is based around how much value we deliver to you. We want our services to pay for themselves and, if possible, be profitable for you through a combination of taxes saved, time saved, and advice dispensed.

    Ongoing support and help

    Our aim is that we’ll be either instantly or quickly available to help you when you get in touch with us. If something is urgent, let us know and we’ll find a way to provide the service you need to the best of our abilities in the shortest time possible.

    If your accountant is not available for whatever reason, other colleagues will be very happy to deal with you and to deliver the assistance you need until your dedicated accountant does become available.

    Although email is useful, we think nothing beats either the phone or a face-to-face visit to get things done quickly and accurately.

    Chartered accountant for Portsmouth

    The Portsmouth chartered accountants working at Black and White Accounting are all either members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants or the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

    As a result of their training and their experience, they’re equally comfortable and skilled at working on contractor accounts as they are on the accounts of limited companies with multi-million pound turnovers.

    Whoever our client is, we file accurate and timely submissions on your behalf to HMRC (and Companies House, if applicable) calculated to maximise tax savings. Our chartered accountants make themselves available throughout the year to advise clients on how to increase their profitability through better cost control.

    Management accountant for Portsmouth

    Larger businesses in Portsmouth benefit from the presence of an experienced management accountant. The information and insight that a management accountant brings significantly benefits decision making on business growth, strategy, future planning, budgeting (long and short tail), investments, and the management of risk.

    However, many larger businesses are not in a position to take advantage of having a management accountant because the costs of employing one are too high for the size of the company and there may not be enough work to keep them busy for 40 hours a week.

    In this case, please contact Black and White Accounting. Our Portsmouth accountants have a wide range of experience across multiple different sectors in helping board members and senior management with decision making. You can scale up and down your part-time management accountant arrangement according to the needs of the business.

    Client accountant in Portsmouth

    Our client accountancy service for Portsmouth businesses takes most or all of the accountancy responsibility away from them – essentially outsourcing their entire accounting function to us. Prior to engaging us, you let us know exactly what you want us to be responsible for and, from the first date of service, we then take those responsibilities on as our own.

    We can provide part-time financial director and financial controller services with the aim of providing regular financial performance reviews and the information required to make decisions on your company’s future. We can also run payroll, bookkeeping service, payroll taxes, invoicing, and much more using the existing staff and systems we have in-house.

    In our experience, the best and most productive relationships between an accountant and client comes from the development of a deep understanding of who they are, what they want to achieve, and where they want to be professionally and personally in the next few years.
