Our clients tend to be small and medium sized businesses who are using MYOB and Acclivity. They include manufacturing companies, service industry, internet shops, design companies, health services and many more. Below are comments from some of the clients we have supported over the past 15 years.
'We had worked with a local firm of accountants before we signed up for the Simple Accounting Business Companion Service. Before we had found that there was a real disconnect between what we needed and what they were able to provide both in terms of understanding our accounting package and the sort of advice and assistance that we needed. Through great serendipity we found Simple Accounting and immediately knew we were able to work together because they understood our accounting package, MYOB, and our business model. Since we started working with Mark our business has grown and Mark has been able to provide the support and advice needed, when we needed it, streamlining our tax and VAT, ensuring the correct payments are being made and on time, putting in place a Payroll and advising us in ways we can be more effective in our book-keeping. Above all Simple Accounting have given us confidence in our financial management and ultimately our business strategy.
Because Simple Accounting work from our accounts package and do not run separate books what we agree translates directly into the way in which we work and reduces the overhead of accounting in the business. We heartily recommend Simple Accounting as an antidote to poor accounting.'
'I look back on the days before working with Simple Accounting with a shudder. We had a straightforward relationship with another Accountancy firm who did all the necessary paperwork for our annual accounting. But with so much to deal with as a small business owner there was always other areas (PAYE, VAT) that I desperately needed help with - for someone to listen to my particular situation and offer advice based on that. Now we have that.
Since we have worked with them the Simple Accounting Team have become an absolutely essential part of my business without whose knowledge, support and advice I would have a far more stressful time. I cannot praise them highly enough for their commitment to really working for their clients and getting to know each business in order to offer the very best solutions.'
'We use Simple Accounting for a number of reasons, one being that unlike most accountants Mark provides regular valuable financial advice relating to our businesses throughout the year. He encourages us to look ahead on how we see our businesses performing in the future. This help is enhanced by his regular visits to our offices to oversee our accounts and monitor the progress of the businesses which ultimately means our year end accounts are in good shape and not a surprise. Mark also provides limitless email and phone support for users of the MYOB accounting software, and it was the search for that support that introduced us to Mark in the first place.'Bowden 2 ltd, East Sussex
'Before we encountered Mark Hill and Simple Accounting Limited we were using an ordinary accountant who did not understand us, our business or our accounting package. As a result our accounting costs were unrealistically high for a business of our size, and the help we had from our accountant at the time was negligible and of little benefit to us.
Mark was able to come into our business and provide business insight and useful help and assistance and we regard him/Simple Accounting as one of our team.'
'We are both very grateful for your help and advice over the years as the business grew and for your invaluable input during the acquisition by Grafton. The professional way in which the accounts were maintained and presented helped enormously during the ''Due Diligence'' process. Everyone here has been extremely happy using MYOB.'Secon Solar Ltd, Sunderland
'I like Mark. Now that may not seem much of an endorsement as I know precious little about accounts. I like a particular brain surgeon but would I let him poke about inside my head is what your thinking?
But the fact is I do not like accounts. It is boring to me. All I need to know is a) how to legally pay the minimum tax possible, b) how to make sure my accounts are in order so both I and anyone else can take a gander and verify results and c) use them for what they are really intended to do which is as measuring stick to see how and where the company is or is not making money and to steer it to where the money is.
Because of my lack of interest left to my own devices all of these aspects would slide. Mark makes sure they don't and I trust him to work in my best interests - which he does. (That's what I pay him for but often professionals actually work first for their own interest then the clients.)
Try trusting someone you don't actually like. OK It was a trick binary question. But you get my point.
So if you find you like Mark Hill then I would recommend him. And if you don't there are plenty more anonymous accountants out there, I know I get a call about once a fortnight.'
