Reigate Accountants – the Black and White difference

What difference can partnering with a local accountant in Reigate employed by Black and White make to your business?

Of course, we do the number crunching which every other accountant does for their clients – and we do it very well. We take the burden of financial recordkeeping away from, we file your tax submissions on time, and you never have to pay a penny more than you need to with our service.

And, if all you want from us is accounting and taxation services, we’d appreciate the opportunity of working with you.

However, the core of the service we provide to most of our clients on a monthly fixed-fee basis is a mixture of traditional accounting and business advice.

With our bespoke service, we get to know you, your company, and what you want to achieve professionally and personally over the coming years. Every service we provide you with is there to help you get to where you want to be faster with less risk and even less friction.

This refreshing and dynamic approach is built upon the strength of our working relationship together. We’re not only there to alert you to opportunities, we’re there to warn you if there are any threats you need to be aware of. We can help you cope with the stresses of the day to day running of business and your attempts to grow it. We’re also there to help you preserve cash in times where getting revenue in is a struggle.

We’ll always be honest with you and we will ask the difficult questions needed to build and fortify the necessary foundations required for a stable business with greater longevity and increased profitability. We’d rather pick the phone up to you and share what we want to share with you and have a real conversation rather than batting emails back and forth between each other over the course of a few days.

We’re currently offering a free hour’s consultation where we can get to know you and we can share what we do with you. We can meet at your premises or ours. To arrange a place, time, and date, please either use the form below, call us free on 0800 140 4644 or email us on [email protected].

    Accurate, up-to-date information with experienced bookkeepers

    The key to making the best decisions to move any business forward is by knowing if your company is reaching its financial and performance targets. For that, you need the very latest financial and performance statistics.

    By hiring a Black and White Bookkeeper, you will be able to access to the very latest information about your business any time you like. Your bookkeeper can also run regular reports on your overall performance for you.

    In addition, a regular visit from a bookkeeper saves you and your staff administration time and you’ll better be able to understand your cash flow – how money is moving through your account, how quickly your clients pay you, and when invoices payable to you become overdue.

    Bookkeeping software selection, implementation, and training

    Black and White is a UK certified Xero Gold Partner. Xero is an easy-to-use and intuitive online accounting and bookkeeping service allowing you and your staff to keep your financial records up to date.

    For companies using 30-day-or-more payment windows, the issuance of invoices and collection of funds from clients is made much more efficient and successful through the use of software packages like Xero. In addition, you can pull a number of different reports instantly from Xero allowing you to better understand how your business is performing.

    Talk to us about integrating Xero into your business. We can help you select the right package and service level for your company and we can train you and your staff on how to use the system (either one to one or in groups at your place or ours).
