We all start in business for a reason, for me, it was a belief that I could create a business that would exist to help other businesses achieve success.
I thought how cool that would be! To achieve financial independence for me, my wife and my 2 boys by helping other business owners achieve their dreams, now that would be something! Something well worth getting out of bed every day for. So, in 2014 wedo accounting was born.
To be honest it was hard, a lot harder than I thought it would be, there were some dark times too, when I thought is it really all worth it (maybe you have been there too). Often, we would pitch up to prospects and explain what we felt we could do for them, but more often than not we got knocked back with the rebuttal, ‘we’re ok we have an accountant.’
We just couldn’t get our message across and clear enough. The message that we were here to help you grow your business, to help business owners achieve what they wanted from their business, not just do their accounts, year-end, management accounts, VAT returns etc. We were offering something more, much more than that.
Then in 2016 we had a break through. We attended a business owners’ workshop and after speaking to other businesses owners we kept hearing the same message – how hard running a business is, how it is easy to lose sight of why you are doing it and how lonely being in business can be.
Mike an owner of a manufacturing business (yes, we were surprised too, there are manufacturing businesses out there in the UK) summed it up : ‘I wish I could get more from my business, more success, be richer a payback for all my hard work and sacrifices I have made. If only someone could show me how.’
I talked things through with my business partner and on the back of that conversation and others we started to put together a strategic plan, a roadmap for helping business get more, a different approach to the way we were selling before because this time we had something to show them, ‘The How’.
Watch our video and see what we do and how we do it, it turned our business around (yes, we applied it to ourselves first) and it has enabled us to help many more business owners to get more from their businesses.

wedo accounting a client focused business
We win by looking after our clients interests so that they win! That’s why our clients stay with us time after time, year after year. Yes, we do Accounting so you don’t have to! Our customers love us! The basis of our relationship
We can’t work with everyone!
At wedo accounting we limit both the number overall clients we retain and the number of new clients we accept each year, this is because we think our focus and attention should always primarily be on the clients we already have.
To be effective, we believe that professional relationships need to be based on mutual trust, mutual support, mutual respect and mutual integrity.
As a result we only work with clients who share our belief in the importance of these four factors. In practice that means that:
