Thanks for visiting the Black and White website. We’re a team of accountants in Lasham – we’ve been trading for 20 years and, in addition to our in-house chartered accountants, we also employ experienced bookkeepers and business consultants.

We offer our services on a fixed monthly rate so that our clients have predictability over the investment they make in our service. But what is our service and how does it differ to other accountants?

Just like other accountants, we complete your returns to HMRC and to Companies House. We make sure that your submissions are sent in very good time to beat the deadlines and we make sure that you pay as little tax as legally possible (without resorting to any strange overseas schemes – we don’t believe in that).

What separates us from other accountants is that we genuinely love business. We love the challenges and stresses it brings to ourselves and to our clients. We love helping our client take advantages of opportunities that hadn’t foreseen.

We also love spotting threats – “never let a good crisis go to waste”, as the old saying goes. Sometimes, when business seems the most difficult and the most exhausting, how we respond to it can make a company much more profitable and efficient once the threat has passed.

In addition to accounting, we offer bookkeeping and Xero (as well as other online accounting packages). Whichever of these services you take means that we always have your latest financial figures and reports to hand back here at Black and White’s HQs.

We review them regularly to see if there’s anything that concerns or excites us. We’re straight-dealing and proactive people here so, when we do see something, we don’t just send you an email. We’ll phone you up or come out to see you to have a two-way conversation about it.

You are where you are now. When we work together, we get to know where you want to be in a few years’ time. Together, we work on a roadmap to get you to where you want to be using achievable milestones as a way to measure progress.

We’re here for your journey and we look forward to being a part of your future success. Please get in touch with us to arrange a free one hour consultation. Please call us free on 0800 140 4644, or email [email protected]

    Finance for Lasham businesses

    When applying for finance, a credible business plan and a detailed cash flow forecast are vitally important in showing lenders the strength of your business and in giving underwriters the confidence they need to approve your request. We provide business plans and financial forecasts for clients seeking:

    • commercial mortgages
    • equipment finance

    Equity investor-targeted business plans and financial forecasts require a different approach to those used to raise funding from banks and other lenders – please get in touch for advice and guidance.
