Small Business Accountancy Services

Baxterworld are Charted Management Accountants, which is different from a typical high street accountant. Our speciality is monthly management accounts, a service that large companies with finance departments typically employ. This is because the regularity of monthly accountancy services allow business owners to test new products or marketing strategies more freely, as they have very quick financial feedback. We believe this type of insight is incredibly important, because it makes business management quick to react and easier to forecast.

The security that is created from this type of accountancy service is something we have always advocated for small businesses and start ups, who are often the most vulnerable to change. This is now a much more affordable service thanks to cloud technology and smart devices.

We provide all of the services you would expect your accountant to provide. Please check our lists below if you are looking for something specific. What you may not expect is that we offer software training, fixed fees and phone support to our clients.
