If you’re based in Esher and you can agree with one or more of the following statements, then we’d like the opportunity to speak with you:

  • you want to minimise your tax but not using any exotic or esoteric schemes to do so;
  • you want an accountant to file your accounts on time and let you know weeks or months in advance what you need to pay so you can budget for it;
  • you’re happy with your business as it is but you want to make more money from it with less stress;
  • you want to expand and you need help to plan the expansion, help to finance it, and you’d like to meet investors who may want to take a stake; and
  • you feel you make good decisions in spite of not having the most up-to-date information available to you but you wonder if your decisions would be even better if you had all the necessary data to hand.

We want to help you, with our one-stop shop of Accounts & Tax, Book Keeping & Payroll, Business Planning and Software Training.

    Accountants in Esher, Surrey – get in touch

    For a fixed monthly fee, benefit from a bespoke selection of Accounts & Tax, Book Keeping & Payroll, Business Planning and Software Training designed to:

    • help you improve your business’ current level of profitability;
    • identify areas where efficiency could be improved; and

    At Black and White, we see ourselves as more than just your accountant. We’re your business partner. While our immediate focus is on helping you make more money and pay less tax, our longer-term goal is to help you achieve personal and professional financial freedom – but freedom in the way that you define it.

    When we first start working with a client, we get to know you, your business, and what you want for yourself and your family in the coming years. Running a business can be very rewarding and personally fulfilling but being a managing director takes more out of you personally and emotionally than being a member of someone else’s staff does.

    No-one ever really warns entrepreneurs about the stress of starting a new business, building it up, achieving stability through rationalisation, and consolidation. When you first go into business, you quickly learn the importance of cash flow because the profit you think you’re making is not always reflected by the cash you have in the bank.

    Our job is to be there on the journey with you. We see our role as being there to spotlight the opportunities that lay before you as well as the threats – and help to deal with both.

    You’ll find us approachable, friendly, and proactive. Email is great but we’d much rather pick up the phone to you or come to your premises to share our insights with you. We’ll never be afraid to ask the difficult questions of you because the answers to those questions will make your business more secure.

    We want to help you get to a place where your business is solid and stable enough to be able to predictably provide you and your family with a significant income. When the time comes to exit and you want to move onto something else, we’ll make sure that your business is ready to go to market so that it can command the highest possible price on the open market.

    We’re offering an hour’s free consultation so that we can start to get to know you and so that you can get to know us and the scope of the services we provide for a fixed monthly fee.

    We can come to your premises or, if you’d prefer, you can come to ours. Just let us know the time, date, and location that suits you. To get in touch with us, please use the form below, call us free on 0800 140 4644, or email [email protected].
