Why us

Any accountant can add up numbers and multiply them. What makes Lancing Cotswold different?

We get to know your business

Every business is different. What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What are you doing well? What could you do better?

Understand your goals

What is your "why"? Why did you set up your business? How do you want others to perceive you? What are your 3 main priorities?

Are dependable

We will support you. Maybe your business has outgrown your accountant? Perhaps your accountant is too busy to answer your calls?

Keep you out of trouble

Can you deal with a letter from HMRC challenging your business? Can you stand by your record keeping and numbers?

Reduce your tax bill

The biggest cost to a business is tax. Is your business tax efficient? Are you paying too much tax?

Plan your exit strategy

Do you have investments, pensions, an exit/succession plan in place? Too many businesses don't have a plan and work 14 hour days on a road to nowhere!

Protect your assets

Bad business decisions, debts, bankruptcy, divorce and even your children are examples of threats to the value you have created. How are you protected?
