Problems with Communications and a Need for Financial Clarity:

Lynda Green, MD of Eckold Ltd was not happy with the guidance and support they were receiving from their accountants.  Lynda and her team needed appropriate Management Information to help guide and inform their decision making in the day to day financial control of the business.

As most of Lynda’s management team were not accounting personnel by training, they were also frustrated by their previous Accountants inability to talk their language and explain things in plain English, so everyone could understand. 

Financial Insight in Plain English, Effective Management Reports and More:

Lynda needed guidance and support from a financial expert able to explain complex financial and accounting issues in layman’s terms, however, the ‘tipping point’ was the need for regular, accurate and timely Management Information to help Ekhold’s management team make the right financial decisions at the right time.

That was long ago, Burgis & Bullock have been Eckold’s accountants for many years.  In that time numerous other financial issues have been addressed with the enthusiastic help and support from the Burgis & Bullock team.  These include not only Management Information, but also payroll, year-end compliance, Audit, the directors personal tax and help with auto-enrolment and companies pension scheme.

Services Delivered:
  • Management Information
  • Statutory Compliance
  • Audit
  • Payroll
  • Personal Tax Returns
  • Auto Enrolment

In Lynda’s own words: 
Burgis & Bullock are friendly and approachable. Eckold have been with them for years and they are 100% better than the previous accountants”
“They have more of a layman’s approach and made it easier for non-accounting personnel to understand accounting procedures. They’ve benefited the business and we now have a more concise accounting facility.

For someone who does not like giving 5 out of 5, Lynda’s feedback is all the more special; with ‘Excellent’ ratings for the ‘Quality of Communications’ and being ‘Considerate and Helpful’.  This means ‘Very Good’ as a rating for the ‘Service Delivered’ and ‘Value for Money’ is as good as it gets.
