Black and White’s team of Ringwood accountants, bookkeepers, and business consultants work with hundreds of private clients and with businesses large and small both in the town and in the surrounding area.

We’re financial partners to Ringwood’s limited companies, LLPs, property management companies, CICs, sole traders, partnerships, freelancers, people earning extra income on top of their salary, landlords, property developers, and contractors (umbrella, PSC, sole trader).

We’re accountants and we love being accountants. We like nothing better than helping you with your Accounts & Tax, Book Keeping & Payroll, Business Planning and Software Training needs.

But, there are hundreds of accountants out there who also offer a brilliant service so what makes us different? Why choose us over one of our very capable competitors?

From our founding 20 years ago, we realised that we needed to do something different to stand out from the crowd.

    How our Ringwood accountants are changing the industry

    What is it that we do differently? Like other accountants, we offer our services on a fixed fee with no hidden costs. We also have a range of add-on services you can scale up and down if you need them.

    But, for us, business is about building relationships. One common reason why clients switch to us is that they tell us that, while they feel their current accountant understands the financials of their businesses, they don’t really understand their business. In addition, they feel that their accountant does not have an understanding of them as clients or what they want to achieve in the future.

    Our MD took the conscious decision to take the business of being an accountant away from a traditional, number-crunching model towards a more hands-on and collaborative approach. Underlying this approach was the belief that there should be a proactive partnership of trust between a business owner and their business accountant underpinned by the accountant’s deep understanding of a client and what motivates their client.

    Within our monthly fixed fee, we’ll only recommend that you take the services which actually add value. With our help as you move towards your end goal for you and your family, we might recommend that you add extra services to allow us to do our job better so that you achieve what you want faster.

    When you work with us, you’ll have a complete overview on the performance of your business based on up-to-date data-driven reports – you’ll better know how to play to your strengths and how to address your weaknesses. Better business information makes for better business decisions and better decisions mean that your business will be financially solid and operationally stable.

    We’ll be there from start-up to expansion taking you to the exit you want for the freedom that will bring you.

    Accounting and bookkeeping software

    By taking up to 5 or 10 minutes a day in which you and your staff upload invoices sent and invoices received to Xero, you benefit from much greater visibility over your business  finances. You’ll know better how your money is being spent and how quickly your invoices are being paid.

    Having this information to hand makes cash flow management a lot more straightforward and it allows you to identify opportunities within your business to cut costs and increase profitability levels.

    In addition to being Xero gold partners, we are certified partners of QuickBooks and Sage. We also work with clients using FreeAgent and Wave.

    Let us come to you, find out how your business works, and then identify an online accounting and bookkeeping package and service level option which provides the functionality you need at the lowest possible price.

    We’re able to help you implement your booking software option across your business and we can train you or your staff either at your premises or at ours. One-on-one and group training options are available.

    Management account in Ringwood

    Management accounts provide businesses with accurate, timely, and actionable information on investments, budgeting, procurement, future planning, strategy, risk management, and business growth.

    However, no matter the value that many businesses see in management accounting, the cost of full-time wages is a significant barrier to recruitment and many businesses fear that there is just not enough work to fill 40 hours a week.

    Speak to us about appointing one of our chartered accountants as your part-time management accountant. Benefit from their insight and the objectivity for a fixed fee every month at a significant discount to hiring one full time.
