Specialist accountants for your creative agency
Do you run a design agency?
Are you fed up with your accountant not understanding your own view of accounting? Like most design agencies chances are you work in projects… So why does your accountant ask you to keep records based on each month? We understand your frustration.
We work with a range of creative industries from web designers to graphic designers and clothing designers to architects. You all work based on projects. Projects have budgets and you need to know which ones are successful and which ones weren’t. Looking at a particular period of time won’t give an accurate easy to understand picture. The chances of projects starting and finishing all within the defined period are slim. We can’t stop the need to report based on time periods completely as they are needed for VAT returns, accounts and tax returns. However, we can introduce project based working so you can have a way of working and reporting that just makes sense!
Like most creatives you might have a studio but if you can get out and about then you take the chances as they come. For this reason you need an accounting system as flexible as you. We utilise the Xero accounting app. No more being stuck to Sage which is probably on your one and only windows PC in the corner of the studio! Xero is web based and accessible anywhere you have internet and on any device. Best of all the project based apps we use are web based too and they seamlessly link to Xero for ‘traditional’ reporting requirements. The additional apps we can help you get setup and linked are awesome too. From automated direct debit collection, mileage and expenses logging and auto purchase invoice processing they are all designed to help you have more time to do what you do best.
If you need an accountant who truly gets your creativeness and the need to work how you work best then you’ve finally found what you have been looking for.
