We are a small Bristol-based accountancy firm and we say the ‘Focus is on you’ with good reason. If you are a contractor, consultant or freelancer - Focus Accountancy has been designed to meet your individual needs with a very affordable and supportive service. We combine an accessible personal approach with the latest cloud-based accountancy services.
Being small means we can be agile, taking advantage of new technologies and helping clients quickly understand and adapt to changes in legislation. We were early adopters of cloud-based bookkeeping and accounting software when we started offering it to our clients over 4 years ago. We work predominantly with FreeAgent and have a wealth of knowledge on the software and the advantages it brings.
Our services work on a fixed monthly fee basis with no hidden charges and unlimited telephone and email support. We understand that small businesses (especially start-ups) often need a lot of support and advice. Our size means you’ll always deal with a name you’ll recognise and who knows both you and your business.
So why not contact us for a free, no-obligation, 1-hour meeting - we’ll put the Focus on you.
