Accountancy Services Business Support

We pride ourselves on being much more than just accountants & bookkeepers!

It is our mission to assist small business owners to help them be the best they can be. With over 20 years experience of working in and owning small business across many market sectors we have come across most problems and overcome them.  It is this knowledge that sets us apart from your usual run of the mill bean-counters.

In order for any business owner to run their company effectively they must however be completely on top of their numbers and know exactly what is going on within their business on a day to day basis. We totally understand that not everyone has a head for figures and may not be up to date with the latest accountancy laws and news so we are here to lighten this burden and do the number crunching for you.

But as stated at the beginning of this page… we do not class ourselves as just accountants!  In our minds accountants are one of those big costs you have to fork out for and only get information once a year which by the time you receive it is out of date.

How would it change your business if you could see week in week out the position of your business and receive a monthly management report every single month detailing everything you need to know about the financial state of your business? This information can then be used for informed decision making such as:

  • Can I buy that piece of machinery this month?
  • Do I have enough cash reserved for my tax bill?
  • Am I maximising the profit potential from each part of my business?

We won’t just provide you with the information, we will meet up and discuss it and help with any decisions you need to make.  We will also point out any useful tips and savings we have noticed whilst preparing the management information for you.

Monthly Management Accounts

Following on from bookkeeping – what happens to the information we have generated during the month? It’s no good to anyone if it’s just sat there not being put to good use. We can provide a monthly Management Information package for you.

Testimonials

Cash Flow Issues

SWSBS went through our internal systems to see where our cash flow problems stemmed from.  They changed our customer contracts to improve payment terms and now our income matches our supplier payment dates which is fantastic.  They even dealt with all our suppliers for us to get the best payment terms!

Bank Funding Granted

We were looking to obtain a small overdraft to help our business during the quieter months.  After months of trying to get help from the bank to no avail we asked SWSBS to help us.  Needless to say we now have the overdraft facility in place as well as monthly accounts so we know where we are.  Our bank manager said they were really impressed with how we are now “all over our numbers”.  It’s a great feeling knowing we are back in control.

Business Doctors

“After a few years of struggling to build our business we called SWSBS in for an initial free consultation.  We were really impressed with their advice and how they go about things – extremely relaxed and friendly.  Now SWSBS have taken over our full finance function and it is like we have an accounts department without the expense of one.  Cannot recommend enough, we refer to them within our business as the Business Doctors as they just seem to get things sorted.”
