How We Work

We deliver our accounting software service in the simplest way possible. We start with a free, initial consultation to discuss your needs and the nature of your business, we then recommend the accounting software that we think best suits you. Once we’ve agreed upon the kind of software, one of our specialists will sit with you over a cup of coffee or tea and show you how to use it and how to get the very most out of it.

Should you agree to use our accounting software service, you’ll benefit from all the perks of being an Aston Shaw client! All Aston Shaw clients are assigned a Client Manager who will be their sole point of contact, meaning you can build a meaningful relationship with someone who really understands your business rather than dealing with lots of people and never really establishing an all-important one-on-one relationship.

As a client of Aston Shaw, unlimited advice and support come as standard. You can call, email or pop into any one of our offices as much as you like and we’ll always do our very best to assist you. We suspect, however, that once you’ve visited our office and had a barista style coffee or one of the many cold drinks on offer, popping into our office to meet with your Clint Manager will be your preferred mode of contact!

Our prices are always fixed fee and our payment methods are always flexible. Whether you would rather pay all in one go or spread the costs over the course of 10 months is completely up to you. We always strive to make things as convenient as possible for our clients.
