Big news from PBS! 

We’ve got some big changes coming up at PBS starting today! I sent a very excited e-mail a few weeks ago to my existing clients but as today is the official launch date I can now share the news with everyone!

Some of you who’ve asked us for accountancy services in the past will know of Martin from BAT Services, as he’s been the accountant we have recommended, equally we do some bookkeeping work for them, a relationship that’s worked well for both of us. Over the past few months we’ve looked at developing this relationship and as such, from 1st October we’ll be merging the two companies under the name of Practical Bookkeeping, Accountancy and Taxation Services (or PBATS) 

Martin has over 15 years experience as an accountant and we’re both looking forward to being able to offer a full range of services to our clients. Personally I’ve known Martin my whole life – he’s my older brother! As such we’ve similar personalities so I’m confident that as we get on, you’ll get on with Martin too! 

So, to cut to the chase, you’ll be wanting to know what will actually change?

The short answer, is nothing – well unless you want it to!

We’re not going to be pressuring anyone to move to us for accounting services, we’re more than happy to continue to provide the same services as we do now to you, however big or small.

The extra services we’ll be able to offer from 1st October 2019 are:

  • Annual statutory accounts (Limited company accounts)
  • Corporation tax returns (Limited company tax returns)
  • Company secretarial services
  • Tax advice and planning
  • Budgets, forecasting and cash flows
  • Management accounts and analysis
  • Business advice and strategy
  • Independent examinations

We’re more than happy to provide you with a quote for any of those, be it because you’re not completely happy with your accountant or you just want to compare prices, whatever the reason we’d be happy to help. 

We’re also developing our social media side further and as part of this we would like to share what our customers are doing, to aid with this we’ve taken on Charlotte in a part time role, so she may be in touch to make sure we’ve got all the right social media details of your company so we’re following the right people! 

And of course, you’ve already read our recent blogarticle introducing Susan who we took on back in May, who looks after all of our payroll and assists with our day to day bookkeeping services.

So lots of changes have already happened and are happening, all for the better we hope! I still want to keep our personal relationships with you all so don’t worry, you’ll still be hearing from me and seeing me just as much as you always do, I’ll just have a great support team working with me! It may even mean a blog entry or two not written by me!
