LOCAL FIRMS BENEFIT FROM LAUNCH OF BUSINESS PACKAGE ‘BOARD SUPPORT’
Trio of Account Wins for Tamworth Firm
Tamworth – 16th August, 2011 – Three local businesses are benefitting from a package launched to help firms get their finances in check in the increasingly difficult financial climate. Flightcase Warehouse, One Call Personnel and S&F Building Maintenance – all based in Tamworth, have signed up to Board Support, launched by Albert Road-based Adams Moore. Board Support enables businesses to access up-to-the-minute accurate advice on tap on a range of business and accountancy issues – all for a fixed-fee – so they don’t need to worry about escalating bills when they need advice.
Board Support provides a higher level of service, encompassing accountancy and business advice, for Owner Managed Businesses (OMBs). The service is comparable with an in-house Finance Director, providing on-going help and advice. This means businesses don’t have to worry about bills stacking up or a meter running when it comes to accessing advice during the day-to-day running of the business.
Steve Austin, owner of Flightcase Warehouse in Tamworth – a manufacturer of flightcases for sector areas including music, pro audio and film, said:
“We’ve been in business for over 20 years. It’s a family-run business, and we’ve seen a steady growth over the last five years, but our systems didn’t grow at the same pace. Consequently, we found ourselves in a position where we needed someone dedicated to providing on-going accountancy and business advice – not only because we don’t have the time to do it but also because it’s useful to have someone not actually in the business to provide an objective view.
“Board Support has become an invaluable part of our business very quickly. The regular review meetings means we’re constantly focused on what we should be doing and be safe in the knowledge that this is taken care of so we can concentrate on the everyday running of the business,” he added.
Pete Farrington, of One Call Personnel, added:
“I needed a service that would allow me to get on with running my business without me having to get involved with what I see as a back-office function – and Board Support provides just that.”
S&F Building Maintenance– which employs anywhere between 15 and 25 employees at any one time – also uses Board Support.
Director Shaun Riley said:
“The service Adams Moore provides is like no other I’ve experienced, and the Board Support service, which I’ve subsequently switched to, is truly worry-free. It encompasses everything you need from an accountancy and business advice perspective and deals with all our needs. We don’t really have to think about it – and if we need anything at all Adams Moore to provide the information we need within 24 hours. I don’t have to worry about a big bill and the monthly meetings and quarterly reviews really allow me to focus on the direction of the business. It’s the most hands-on service I’ve known. It allows me to focus on new business development safe in the knowledge that the financial side is in good hands.”
Martin Crook, partner at Adams Moore, said:
“We decided to launch Board Support after feedback from our clients who needed so much more than just a regular accountancy service that files end of year accounts and looks after tax returns. Board Support was born when we decided to offer this next level of service, but knew clients wouldn’t want an open-ended bill. No one is going to effectively use a service if it’s going to incur cost each time.
“Many businesses need someone to be looking at accounts on a monthly basis to ensure the business is going in the right direction and if not, any problems or issues can be ironed out quickly to minimise potential impact on the business. Similarly, any opportunities which can be capitalised on can be identified early if there is someone dedicated to the finance side of the business. For businesses of a certain size, that needs an extra tier of support without the commitment of a big salary for an in-house Finance Director – this is an excellent option,” he added.
