Principal here Robert Mitchell says:

"Choosing a new Accountant is quite a bewildering experience. One look at the phone book alone should tell you that! Academic letters after one's name don't always mean that relevant up-to-date practical experience, ongoing professional development, or business acumen and common sense which best fits your purpose,is undertaken. One size doesn't fit all. That's why this website is 'real' in its feel and not a standard generic product from some website development company. 'Keeping it real' to help you choose. As a small and medium enterprise,(SME),you must find the best fit for your business. An important decision, your Accountant is either your best friend, or your worst enemy, as many we meet can allude too.

Nowadays, Accounting Technicians, when certified as being experienced and competently qualified, perform exactly the same tasks in a financial environment as most other qualified Accountants,(excluding the increasingly obsolete need for a SME external statutory audit). We are Regulated by the AAT which is well established in the UK accounting profession and worldwide, and is now an affiliate of the International Federation of Accountants. Albasas has accumulated 20 years plus of sound general practice advice, operating in the UK SME market, in partnership with our regulators The AAT. When acting in connection with our clients matters nothing here is left to chance. Professionalism & trust are are not just clichéd token gimmicky phrases here either at Albasas. We value modern business ethics. Are freethinking, independent, objective and transparent in all our business dealings. Reversing the Public's traditional stereotypical view of Accountants as dull soulless machines. All good. However, you will still need the basics- a professionally trained, reliable, experienced and regulated general practice like here. So why not get involved then with Albasas for this and modern, progressive, professional added value services, and so much more? This from the original technology driven accountants. You'll be glad you asked...."
All services offered are subject, to our mutually acceptable and subsequently agreed terms of engagement inclusive of the necessary UK due diligence. Remember, one size rarely fits all. Your business is as individual as you are. Likewise, each accountancy and tax assignment. So you are bound to require specialized input from our pool of specific skill sets from all of the varied expertise gathered here to date. Such professional standards are important to you, us, and all other end users of the accounts and tax data too. Ultimately its your choice. Some still adopt an illogical 'sweepstake' or 'pageant beauty parade' process to choosing an Accountant. Such a generic approach to selecting any professional services, is in our opinion, tunnel vision, and usually results in adequate results at best. Its your decision. So get in touch! You'll be glad you asked...

So poor management and a lack of financial information are 2 of the biggest threats to the well being of your business.

Entrepreneurs know that cash flow is king…you can be really profitable on paper but unless you get those invoices paid’ll get into serious trouble

Accurate and correct external and internal financial controls and accounts give you the tools to manage your cash flow bottlenecks as they will also allow you to ask some probing questions like:

Do you have too much money tied up in stock?
How much are you losing through wastage of resources?
Who precisely is habitually owing you money ?
And how long are they taking to pay? And;
Having the means to cut out on all the uneconomical factors of your business; where are the known areas of growth and or profitability?
