2016 Finance Awards

International Finance Awards 2016 / 9 OE16001947 Accounting Direct Plus tailored its services to each individual client whilst ensuring its high standards of professionalism, efficiency and expertise never change. Enver talks us through why he believes that client focused service is vital to the firm’s success. “In order for a company to become successful it has to put clients first; to understand their situation and provide a first class service tailored to their specific needs. This is because when a company can establish a one-to-one relationship with their clients and offer timely, individual advice on how to improve their business or personal finances and prove successful in doing so, they automatically start setting a mark for themselves. “As such here at Accounting Direct Plus our experienced team provides a wide range of accounting and business advisory services to companies and individuals across the UK. In addition to traditional bookkeeping and account work, we offer assistance in other areas such as business development, accounting Software solution, tax planning, and retirement strategies and much more.” This client centred approach is in direct correlation with the firm’s overall mission, which Enver is keen to highlight. “Our mission is to be in the top 100 accounting firms in the UK, and to achieve this, we are continuously implementing new systems and ways of improving efficiency and the quality of our work so that we can gain more clients.” Enver concludes by depicting the firm’s plans for the future, which are focused on growth and expansion. “In the near future we aim to have an online solution that is simple and easy to use, making us not just your accountant but a business adviser. It can be accessed via the internet, and so clients will always have it on the move. We have also recently improved our marketing strategies, which in turn has resulted in a linear growth in the quality of our client base which we aim to build upon going forward. By focusing on their needs and moving with the growing trend for mobile accounting we are confident that we can build on our current success.” Company: Accounting Direct Plus Limited Name: Enver Kannur Email: info@accountingdirectplus.com Web Address: /www.accountingdirectplus.com Address: 293 Green Lanes, London, N13 4XS and 34-35 D’Arblay Street, London, W1F 8EY.

Most Innovative Accountancy Firm – London & Best Accounting Software Provider - London Established over 10 years ago and based in West Yorkshire, Age Partnership has grown since inception to encompass over 250 employees and a tailored a range of financial solutions specifically for the over 55s. Tim describes the firm’s service offering in greater detail, outlining how it is tailored to suit the firm’s market. “At Age Partnership, we believe that people who are at or approaching retirement deserve to get the best out of life. As such, over the years we have helped hundreds of thousands of people to understand equity release and their pension income options with our free guides and free, easy-to-use online calculators. “It is our aim to build great relationships with our customers by focussing on two simple objectives: the best value and best service. We help our customers rather than sell to them, offering over-the-phone advice and a face to-face service, for customers who prefer to meet us in person and will provide our customers with a free, no-obligation personalised recommendation.” Within the wider industry there are many new developments. As today’s population live longer, the newly elected Pensions Minister will have an important role in ensuring that access to retirement income is transparent and straightforward. With more and more options being introduced for older borrowers, it will also be key that these choices are made clear and the correct advice is giving to each individual. As such Tim depicts Age Partnership’s exciting plans which will help support the next generation of retirees and beyond. “Moving forward, our vision is a roadmap that guides every aspect of our business by describing what we need to accomplish in order to continue achieving sustainable, quality growth and being the UK’s number one choice for over 50’s finance. We have recently launched a mortgage desk in order to help meet more customers’ needs and I am sure that this function will become an important part of our business going forward. We are also looking to launch an exciting range of new services across the remainder of 2016 and into 2017. “Additionally, Age Partnership is cementing a position as a leading job creator at its Yorkshire base. The launch of new products and growing sales volumes will see headcount grow from 250 to 350 in the next 12 months.
