Keeping You Out Of Trouble

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.

This is the traditional role of the accountant. Following along behind the entrepreneur picking up all of the dropped balls being the “boring bits”. Filing paperwork with the HMRC or Companies House before any deadlines and generally trying to ensure that the business owner complies with regulation or the law.

This is still a really important role perhaps even more so now that our country is run on the amount of penalties or fines that the government agencies can impose on its citizens. Plus deregulation means that anyone can claim to be an accountant with no qualifications and little experience.

The usual suspects when it comes to regulation are below and we support and advise our clients on all of these on a practical and “no jargon” basis.

Audit – possibly the ultimate need to have but really don’t want.

Auto Enrolment – we have the stress free solution to this problem.

Bookkeeping – using cloud technology to deliver a cost effective but really high quality “qualified” solution. In fact we give our clients the perfect business gift. We give them their weekends back, when in the past they have had to spend so much of this valuable time “doing their books”.

Commercial Insurance – access to our hugely experienced broker and great rates.

Company Secretarial – not as easy as it seems and could potentially cause tax problems.

GDPR – so important to protect any personal data you may hold. Get it wrong and the penalties and reputational damage could put you out of business.

Human Resources – horrible name but oh so important to get the best from your team.

Payroll – On time, accurate, fully secured and GDPR Compliant

Statutory Accounts – accurate, reliable financial accounts prepared by qualified accountants.

Tax Compliance – Making Tax Digital perhaps should be called Making Tax Difficult although with our systems we call it Making Tax Delightful.

VAT – Horrible, time consuming, and so easy to get it wrong. Why get stressed over it? Give it to us to sort out.

Existing clients can login to WandD Family Zone to find out more about the above.

We want to spend time with you face to face to really help you create a successful business and build a better future for your family.

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."
