    Accountants in Leatherhead – how we add value

    We’re more than number crunchers. That’s not what our MD, Jon Mills, set out to do 20 years’ ago when he established Black and White Accounting. Together, he and his team (which has a combined experience of 150 years working with individuals and businesses) offer our clients the following:

    • we get to know you and your business as it is today
    • we find out what it is you want to achieve in 5 years’ time
    • we propose a bespoke combination of services to help you get there as fast and as friction-free as possible
    • if we spot a problem, we’ll tell you
    • if we have a difficult question to ask, we’ll ask it because the answer is more likely to give you and your company ongoing stability
    • we’d rather pick up the phone and talk to you rather than bounce emails back and forward
    • we’re on the journey with you all the way
