Accounts and Landmarks

17 Jun 2014

Closely following our 1st birthday it’s been yet another week of landmarks here at Accounts and Legal as not only did we celebrate reaching 1500 Twitter followers we also received our 1000th request for an instant quote online so what is it that people like about Accounts and Legal?

Our social media following has grown rapidly as more and more of your turn to our business blog for everyday inspiration and advice about running a successful small business. Now, even though we know this we couldn’t help but feel an extra special sense of pride as our Twitter follower count ticked over the 1500 mark but the next achievement was just around the corner.

As some of your may know just over one year ago Accounts and Legal were virtually unknown; we were a new accountancy firm with ideas to shake up the accounting process for small businesses. So with a strong vision to make accountancy useful, armed with our innovative tools we set off on our mission and now just one year on we are happy to announce that 1000 of you have requested a quote from our services; that’s between 2 and 3 every day!

In the modern age no-one wants to wait, we want everything right now and if not then yesterday and that’s why we decided to give instant quotes for our services on our website to anyone who might need to get a price there and then. Our up front approach and structured pricing make accountancy easy to understand in a world that was traditionally grey; and once you’ve got a quote you can understand our service…

With a team comprised of knowledgeable accountants and experienced Business Consultants the Accounts and Legal service means that we can help you to understand your finances and use the information to grow your business while saving money on tax.

In other news it is that passion for entrepreneurs and small businesses that has lead us to choose Young Enterprise as our charity to support. We were recently asked to judge at the London Final of the Young Enterprise Company awards and we are proud to announce that we helped to crown ACE as worthy winners of the contest.

About the author

Originally graduating with a degree in geography from Edinburgh University, Keir claims that he was then tricked into becoming an accountant by one of the UK's top 5 accountancy practices.The deception extended to the usual training in audit and associated activities.

Keir subsequently worked in a number of advisory roles with clients including in the energy trading, pharmaceuticals and financial services sectors.

He loves working at Accounts & Legal because of the variety of work and clients, the excellent team ethos and morale, the importance placed on genuinely helping and being useful for clients and because he believes what he does matters to clients and helps the firm.

Keir's primary role is to ensure that new clients with complex businesses or needs are on-boarded in the best way and he is a "trouble shooter" both for clients and where complex issues arise internally. He also helps the accounting teams strive to improve what we do for clients, whether processes or services.

When not debiting or crediting, Keir has a penchant for fixing old buildings, skiing, surfing and cycling.
