More recently, Suzanne undertook senior accountancy and finance roles with a firm of property developers and house builders as well as a large US corporate company.

Our Work

Tracey Cronie - From Tiny Seeds

Suzanne has been brilliant from the word go. She’s always at the end of the phone to answer any questions. As I’m new to being self employed there’ve been quite a few, but she has been so patient - she’s made it easy for me. Suzanne’s been able to reclaim tax back for me that I didn’t know was due, so extremely happy and would 100% recommend her.

Paul Meeres – Landscape Gardener

We changed accountants due to lack of communication (we’d suddenly got an extra tax bill that we weren’t expecting!) So, Suzanne has taken over, she worked through our Accounts and explained what the tax bill related to. She just makes it so much easier by explaining in plain English what everything means and when we need to do things.

D Hemsley – N Hemsley & Sons Contracting Ltd

I got into a bit of a pickle with my paperwork and was receiving numerous HMRC fines and penalties as we weren’t submitting on time. I got in touch with Suzanne and straightaway she helped us get back on track. She set up payroll correctly and wrote to HMRC to explain the issues so the fines and penalties have been cancelled. Such a relief to know she is now looking after the financial side.

Case Study...

Brief: At Groundworks & Tarmacadam we’d used the same accountant since 2009. However we were having a few issues with VAT. And were struggling to get our money back relating to the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS). But, we weren’t getting any help from our accountant and we didn’t know how to resolve the issues. Our accountant had just prepared year end accounts and told us the tax bill due. So, we needed a much more proactive hands-on approach.

Action: We contacted Swift Accountancy who we knew had clients in the construction industry. Suzanne did a full overhaul of the systems and told us what was needed so we were compliant with the HMRC legal requirements. She also liaised with HMRC to get overpaid tax returned. This was money that we wouldn’t have had without Suzanne’s persistence. Suzanne suggested we move to cloud accounting which was done just after year end and it’s unbelievable the time we’re saving. Also, our invoices look more professional when they get automatically emailed to the correct contact.

Outcome: We realise now that we were doing things the same way because that’s how we’ve always done it! It’s been such a weight lifted knowing that we’re now in capable hands and complying with all legal requirements. And we’re in the 21st Century! We’re still learning the system but Suzanne is always at the other end of the phone. Sometimes it’s in the evening when we’re getting around to doing our paperwork. But we never feel that it’s too much trouble to ask! She has gone above and beyond and even sorted out our new email address as again we have no clue with IT either.
