Does your business need an Accountant that goes the extra mile?
Some accountants just see their clients as tax returns, vat receipts and book-keeping. At Whitehead & Aldrich we like to look beyond the numbers and really get to know you.
Chris and Sue Cameron run their own successful restaurant and outside catering business at Birkacre Nurseries & Garden Centre in Chorley. After a false start with their old accountant, they asked Whitehead & Aldrich to help to steer the business in the right direction. We didn’t lose any time getting involved, quickly focusing on the figures that matter.
We helped the business save £14,000 Straight away we looked at profitability, identifying the right pricing structure for their exceptional food and service, but without reducing sales. We renegotiated the restaurant’s rent agreement saving £6000 per year, reduced payroll costs, obtained an income tax refund of £4000 and acquired government assistance saving a further £4000 per year. We’ve even trained their staff to use Sage; putting Chris and Sue back in control of their own accounts and giving them a clear view of just how well their business is doing.
"Jonathan and the team have played a key role in our continuing success. It’s reassuring to have the right professionals behind us, people who understand our business and we trust."
