Traditional Stone - Crowther Image

We are a group of companies with a common Director and a combined turnover of £5m.  Between 2014 – early 2018 we worked with our existing accountants and employed and in-house Financial Controller to develop and upscale the businesses.  In 2018 we found we were not moving forwards in the direction we had hoped and therefore addressed this by seeking a proactive and forward-thinking Accountant.

The Introduction…

Crowther Accountants were introduced to us at a networking event, and came highly recommended.  Subsequently we met with Steven Crowther and in our initial meeting he made several suggestions that would enable a leaner and more productive working method, which could strategically take our businesses to the next level.

The Solution…

As we made the transition to Crowther Accountants the support, we received went way above what we expected.  Where we may have initially been apprehensive about the move to a new accountancy practice, all concerns were soon removed by the team at Crowther’s positive and problem-solving attitude.  This gave invaluable reassurances to our inhouse team and ensured we began better working practices in as minimal time as possible given the extent of remedial work required.

Under Steven’s guidance, and with his team’s dynamic proactive approach, we restructured our accounts department, saved costs, have a better real-time idea of where the business is and where we need to take it.

Once they had everything in order, we then looked at how to run our business properly and where we could implement cost savings.  For the first time in years we have clarity of how the business is financially performing and what products are most profitable for us.  Steven and his team have taken the guess work out of running our business and put some facts and figures to it.

In the short time we have been working with Crowthers we now have monthly management reports that ensure we address any issues within a close timeframe.  Our management team are in touch with how the company is performing and each department has been given direction and clarity, which has allowed us to ensure our business is more profitable.

The Cost Savings…

During the first couple of months Crowthers team recovered considerable amounts of money by reclaiming fines previously paid to HMRC.  Our wages bill was reduced, unnecessary time spent on out of date accounting methods were removed, and in turn further costs were saved.  Overall the combined time and money spent on internal and external accountancy and bookkeeping was greatly reduced yet the accuracy and clarity of the financial status of the business was increased.

The Extra Mile…

The customer service exceeds expectations and the team at Crowther’s are friendly, approachable and professional in a far superior way to anyone we have worked with in the past.  They are an essential extension of our team.  Steven is always contactable, as are our dedicated contacts within the business.
