    Familiar services, innovative approach

    When Jon Mills set up Black and White Accounting twenty years ago, his vision was to offer the very high level of service delivery that clients wanted from their accountants but with a fundamentally different and wider view on the role an accountant should occupy. We don’t just provide Accounts & Tax, Book Keeping & Payroll, Business Planning and Software Training, we provide much, much more.

    Our belief is that, when we’ve crunched the numbers and gone through your financial transactions with a fine tooth comb to save you as much tax as possible, that’s not the end of our work for you. In fact, it’s just the beginning.

    All of the work our chartered accountants and bookkeepers carry out for our clients automatically gives us a unique and detailed insight into their businesses.

    We find out how healthy your cash flow is, what your customer acquisition cost is, how much money you make per order and from a client in an average year, where the sales are coming from, and much more.

    This information, when analysed and understood, helps us and the business owners we represent understand the true strengths and weaknesses within a business. We can then figure out ways with our client to play to those strengths and how to counteract any effect those weaknesses may currently be having on cash flow, efficiency, and profitability.

    Even more, your financial records let us know what opportunities are open to your business (cost reduction, supplier negotiation, and so on) and what the threats to your business are (rising input costs, cost of providing customer service support, and more).

    We aim for a healthy, open, and friendly personal and professional relationship with our clients based upon gaining and keeping your trust and taking every opportunity to deepen our understanding of your business.

    If we have an insight we need to share with you, we’d much rather do it face to face or over the phone. There’s more immediacy that way and we don’t see the point in having the same conversation over email across two days instead of a 10/15-minute phone call.

    Now and next

    You’ve done brilliantly to get where you are now. We’re businesspeople too and we understand the unique pressures that running a business puts on an owner professionally and how that spills over often into their personal lives.

    At your hour free consultation with us and over time, we’ll much better understand where you want to be in a few years’ time. Let’s put together an action plan to get you there as quickly and as friction-free as possible in small steps – measurable milestones each one of which takes you closer to the end prize.

    When we’re on this journey with you, we’ll try to assume as many of your responsibilities as possible so you can keep your eyes on achieving each milestone and so that, if you choose, you can take time off with the family and not be thinking about work all the time.
