What We Do
We help businesses and individuals to not only be compliant, but more financially efficient. We advise clients on how to save money and offer advice on how to make more of it by suggesting ways to streamline operations, recommending alternate marketing tactics and working with our clients when appropriate to achieve their objectives.
We care for our clients’ businesses as we do our own business. We think and act like business partners, not just accountants or financial advisors. We share our clients’ aspirations, work to understand their reality and align our advice accordingly with their objectives so that they never miss out on an opportunity.
We deliver the ‘Big 4’ quality of service at local rates and demystify the accounting process by presenting financial information in a clear and concise manner.
How We Do It
At Aston Shaw, we realise that helping our clients requires more than just recommendation, so we try to put ourselves in our clients’ shoes and focus on practical actions and solutions. We ensure our work has lasting benefits by developing a close bond with our clients and being deeply committed to their success. A dedicated client manager is allocated to each client, which ensures that personal service and a ‘hands-on’ approach remains at the forefront of everything we do.
We believe strongly in specialisation, and have oriented our firm’s structure and professional development processes to ensure that our understanding of our clients and the sectors in which they do business is deep and nuanced. We are rigorous in seeking the best answer, not just the one that is most readily accepted and with the benefit of true expert knowledge and practical experience, we can deliver more efficient and practical business solutions.
We do not charge by the hour but give you a fixed price fee for the job. There is also the option to pay monthly, quarterly or bi-annually to help with cash flow or to suit your individual financial situation.
Who We Work With
We cater for all sectors, but are specialists in a large number of sectors. We act for a wide range of clients from individuals to local charities to professional services. Our widespread specialist knowledge allows us to tailor our advice in line with each sector’s economic challenges and legal regulations, to ensure that our clients have a competitive advantage.
