As with most small companies, we rely on the services of others to make our business a success. After extensive searching we have found a number of businesses that adhere to our own philosophy of low-cost, no-frills, efficient service and have no hesitation in recommending them to our customers.
We use an accountancy practice called 'The Accountancy Partnership
' (www.theaccountancy.co.uk). Whilst not quite the cheapest accountants around (although they come close) they offer a service and pricing structure that exactly meets our needs and, being a small practice, are able and willing to respond very quickly to our queries. In fact our aspirations dovetail so well together that we recommend them as the preferred accountants for those using our FreePlus Accounting software.
There are many occasions when an additional pair of hands are required at short notice to carry out office related tasks. For this work we have found 'Helpful Admin
' (www.helpfuladmin.co.uk) to be unfailingly helpful and efficient. From entering those purchase receipts that kept stacking up to writing user documentation to supplying an extra pair of hands in the office, Helpful Admin
have, on many occasions, saved the day.
Most small businesses, nowadays, require some sort of web presence but there is a world of difference between a few pages knocked up on your home computer and a professionally designed suite of pages that work harmoniously together. To get the professional look one has to go to the professionals and none that we have found are more professional and innovative than 'logicdesign
' (www.logicdesign.co.uk). Based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, logicdesign
have repeatedly impressed us with their grasp of what we are looking for and their ability to turn that into an impactful design.
