The Root of our success

20 Jan 2014

True to form it’s been another action packed week at Accounts and Legal HQ from even more new clients to our newest Accountant passing her Xero exam, there’s never a dull moment.

Readers of our blog will know what Xero is but for those of you who don’t, click here. Kat joined Accounts and Legal at the beginning of the month and not only is she kept busy enough here, Kat also has a new baby to look after so hats off to her for her hard work and dedication!

In keeping with our successful start to January last week we signed another two clients taking our total for the month to 15! It’s been an extremely prosperous start to 2014 for our team and we’re hoping that’s down to our fresh approach to accounting services. To find out more about our philosophy and why decided to do things differently visit our blog pages.

We’ve not only been extremely busy with both our new and existing clients but of course January is the month the accounting world goes a little crazy over Self Assessment and it was no different here. We’ve been pulling early mornings and even later nights to make sure everyone who needed us was catered for. Completing your tax return and submitting it on time is always a satisfying process, if you need any last minute help with yours then get in touch to see what we can do.

At Accounts and Legal we are extremely proud of our website and our mission to make accounting useful and to further this we are just about to add some new features.

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.
