Focused on family businesses….


Business Growth Accountants

Family businesses are a fundamental part of the UK economy employing significant numbers and greatly impacting on their local communities.

The majority of our clients are family run businesses and we have therefore accumulated a vast amount of experience in helping them with their unique needs.

Our giving impact

We are lifetime members of B1G1 which is a social enterprise and non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world that’s full of giving and 100% of all contributions made to B1G1 go directly to their projects.

If you decide to work with us we will give a contribution on your behalf to one of our projects in B1G1.

Benefits of Cloud Accounting

We all now accept “cloud” as the norm rather than the unique and as we have been using cloud accounting software since 2009 we are experts (with certificates to prove it) in the leading solutions.

However there is a difference between just using cloud accounting and really gaining a benefit from them.

Let’s start with WHY we do what we do. It’s pretty simple yet pretty profound too.

We get up every morning to help family run businesses build a better future for the next generation because family is the most important part of all of our lives.

We believe…

We have all experienced the effects of recession on ourselves and our families, on our team and their families and on our clients and their families.

However in any recession there are always businesses which succeed where others fail and our mission is to provide our clients with the proactive financial support and business growth advice to ensure their long term success, which in turn will support our team and ourselves.

We passionately believe (yes, Accountants with passion) that a successful business owner needs two things: a solid foundation of “Real Time Financial Information” AND the support of a truly switched on adviser and coach to enable them to build a better life for themselves and their families.

We also believe that our success should enable us to help those less fortunate than ourselves and for every service or project delivered by us results in giving to both local and global charities. See Our Giving Impact

Together we build a long term partnership where our clients achieve their dreams and ambitions then we all succeed.

How do we do it?

We believe strongly that a business owner can only create a successful business and achieve a better life when their decision making is based upon real-time, up-to-date financial information.

We help them succeed by using award winning cloud accounting systems such as Xero and Quick Books Online to provide them with up to date, reliable information to help them to properly plan for growth and to make better decisions.

When they make better decisions they get dramatically better results. That means we meet regularly with our clients to track progress, to make decisions and set new goals. We’re deeply committed to that. So we only work with clients who commit to quarterly meetings with us.

By taking our advisory services business owners should make better decisions and make more profit which will give them more choices in both their business and personal lives.

In order to support our clients effectively we strive to help our team achieve their full potential and this leads to them striving to do the same for our clients. See our values.

What our clients say!

"I am constantly delighted with the comprehensive and tailored support that we receive, they are a wonderful bunch of professionals. They provide us with prompt and friendly help and guidance whenever needed which is important when running a small company."

"They are forward thinking and always take the opportunity to give advice on improving our profitability. I can't think of anyone I would trust more with our accounts."

"As a director of a small business still in relative infancy ,having a local accountant that I can depend on is of upmost importance . Wood & Disney oversee my accounts with great efficiency and care and offer a personal bespoke service which enables me to devote my time to the day-to-day running of the business ,knowing my financial matters and all duties that need to be legally fulfilled are in reliable and professional hands."

"The team at Wood & Disney are approachable , friendly and all round ,a pleasure to work alongside."

"We have been using Wood & Disney for approximately 10 years now and have always been very satisfied with the service provided. We get practical plain English advice with no jargon, with business advice, which can make a real difference to our success as well as doing all the usual tax and accounting stuff. We would recommend them to anyone."

"I am just writing to thank you and your staff for all the help you have given us all year with our accounts. We have been so impressed with the professional and efficient service you provide. Wages are calculated each week without delay and Laura has always gone the extra mile to answer our questions when we've needed advice."

"At the end of five years of profitable trading I wish to place on record my thanks for the way in which our accounts and tax affairs have been conducted. The advice and support given by everyone ensured that we avoided myriad pitfalls into which we could have fallen. The promptness and accuracy of your service is commended. It is a pleasure to work with dedicated professional people."

"Since applying to your team of accountants later last year my husband and I have now realised just how misinformed we were previously. Book keeping, once a miserable task resentfully performed, has now proved to be a fundamental quality experience which has enhanced our autonomy."

"The humanistic approach undertaken by the team is of significance when dealing with people who are not so experienced in the fine art of accounts. Once again thank you, and may our future transactions prove just as satisfactory."

"Please can I take this opportunity to thank you and John for completing these accounts for me swiftly, and in an efficient manner. It is a great please to deal with a firm who can provide a good service without the need for me to get heavily involved in too much detail."

"I was really touched to receive the bottles of Australian Wine in honour of my 60th. It also reminds me that I have been using your firm, originally through Philip Wood, since 1976 (so half my life!). So thanks to you and the firm, and I look forward to your continued support. For some, retirement may begin at 60, but I am intending to stay in harness for some time still.. So you may assume that we will remain in contact for some years to come."
