Kathryn and Tony had been working together for the past three years then an opportunity arose that neither of them expected or could refuse. Here we find out their story:-
"I had been working with a number of Accountants since Bookkeeping Counts was born in 2014, one of which was Tony McNally from AMJM Consulting. We were both sole traders looking to grow our business but struggling with time. There is only so much work one person can do! What we both soon realised was that there was a simple solution to this - join forces! Instead of referring work to one another we would be able to do it in house and offer a much wider range of services to our clients that is bespoke to them. So Guidon Group was formed and it is very exciting times ahead for both of us."Kathryn
“Having worked in industry for most of my accounting career I welcomed the opportunity to work with smaller businesses acting as their virtual FD making sure that they were compliant with their statutory and tax obligations but also helping them progress in their business and life ambitions without the need for a full time accountant. Whilst other accountants keep their client contact down to the bare minimum we welcome our clients talking to us on any subject without the meter running. Meeting with Kathryn whilst on a client engagement proved that we had a common purpose when dealing with clients and the skills that we brought to the partnership complemented each other. The move to cloud accounting in the industry prompted our merger. We wanted to offer a totally integrated accounting service from bookkeeping, payroll, VAT, annual accounts and Corporation tax to regular management accounts production, finding the right funding and reviewing the client’s business strategy at whatever stage of the business life it was. This thereby enhances the service for those clients who need it. Whilst we can interact with clients on a regular and frequent basis, cloud accounting means that we can monitor the financial well-being of a business almost instantly. To enable us to provide this level of customer service we are now Quickbooks online certified pro advisers.”Tony
