1. We charge fixed fees
All fees are fixed and agreed in advance so that you have peace of mind and know there will be no surprises when it comes to your bill. And because we feel communications is so important, unlike many practices, we make no additional charge for client phone calls or emails.
2.We pride ourselves on understanding our clients’ businesses
You want to know that your accountants really understand your business and are offering the most appropriate advice, tailored to your needs. That’s why we take the time to appreciate your current situation and consider your future direction before making recommendations. It’s not just about the year-end numbers – as management accountants, we look at all aspects of your operations. Our role is in maximising your profitability, minimising your tax liability and adding real value across your business. We’re a sounding board all year round…not just at year end.
3. We inspire confidence in our ability
Damian Evans is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants – the youngest Fellow to be appointed at that time in Wales – and is one of only a few accountants in the UK to hold a CIMA Member in Practice certificate.
For client’s peace of mind, iC holds full professional indemnity insurance.
4. We offer the flexibility to fit in with your lifestyle
We know that running your business can be all-consuming – that’s why we offer evening and weekend appointments to fit suit your schedule, and wherever possible, will visit you at your preferred meeting point to minimise disruption to your day.
5. We assist your cashflow by offering installment payments
Our maxim is that “cash is king”, and so, by prior arrangement, we offer monthly standing order plans to enable you to spread the cost of your support throughout the year.
6. We offer a local presence – with international experience
We operate from offices in South Wales but have a client base which spans the UK. Collectively, our team has many years experience of working nationally and internationally, in the public, private and third sectors, so rest assured we will apply sound corporate advice whilst still offering a dedicated personal service.
7. We speak in Plain English
Our aim is to demystify accountancy and taxation jargon, and speak in metrics that are meaningful to your organisation. We believe in simple and straightforward communications and will always keep you updated on key milestones and actions required on your part.
8. We believe communication is key
We like to talk with our clients – that’s why we keep you up to date with the latest business news, view and tips via our quarterly magazine, our monthly tax e-bulletin and our regular web news. We also understand that you are busy running your business and may not have all of your key dates at your fingertips – so via our innovative in-house system, we’ll remind you when your accounts and tax deadlines are looming. And whenever you want to chat to us about current business issues or plans for the future, we’re only a phone call away.
You’ll also find us chatting on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn – just search for iC accountancy and join the conversation.
9. We take a holistic approach to your business
Our breadth of expertise means that we can offer a portfolio of support to your business, spanning accounting, tax, corporate finance, investments and business advisory services. Whatever the lifestage of your organisation – start-up, growth, maturity or exit – we’re on hand to counsel, recommend and action.
10. We value your business
Our aim is to build long term relationships with our clients, becoming a trusted advisor and adding real value to your business – we never lose sight of the premise that our prosperity is directly linked to yours.
