"Overwhelmingly positive"

I have found my experience with the team at Focus Accountancy to be overwhelmingly positive.

I was previously with a large Bristol based firm, but found them unresponsive, and unhelpful in

assisting me with my small business.

The team at Focus couldn't be better - Barry helped me resolve a number of historical issues, then set me up on Freeagent which has made life moving forward much easier.

Highly recommended!

Barry and the team have been extremely helpful.

They provide good and timely communications on all the

key tax and reporting processes.  


As freelance specialists they understand my needs, and provide solid advice.  Whenever I've had a question, my calls and emails are returned promptly - and the Freeagent software is brilliant!

"Highly recommended!"

I've been working with Barry and the Focus Accountancy team for a

couple of years now and I've been

very happy with the service I've received.

Prior to commissioning Focus my understanding of how my business accounts worked was patchy at best. Barry and the team have not only

helped me gain a much clearer picture

of how my business accounts stack up but they have also made a raft of suggestions that have improved my personal and tax liabilities.

Highly recommended!

"At the top of their game!"

Barry and his team at Focus Accountancy have been my accountants since I started my business over 10 years ago and have provided expert advice and guidance every step of the way. It is very reassuring to know my business finances are in such good hands, whenever I have a challenge or question the response is very swift and simple to understand. FreeAgent has made keeping track of the business finances even easier along with invoicing, forecasting and other business essentials, I can highly recommend Focus for any business owner looking for a supportive accountant that is at the top of their game!

I have been very impressed by Barry and his team from day one.

Not only are they professional, diligent and organised, but crucially for me they also communicate clearly and frequently, which is essential for timely and efficient interventions and a strong supplier-client relationship.

Highly recommended!

"Friendly and efficient"

I moved to Focus Accountancy approx. 6 months ago and I couldn't be happier with Barry and the team. They have provided a friendly and efficient  service and getting my books on FreeAgent has transformed the way I run my business. 

The team at Focus have been incredibly helpful and thorough and have talked me through complicated issues with patience and understanding. I was anxious about moving accounts due to the paperwork involved, but the process has been smooth and thorough and I wish I had done it years ago!

"Professional and reliable"

Barry is both professional and reliable. His practice has looked after my affairs for a few years now and I have nothing but praise for the service they provide.

Barry offers a proactive approach to his services, and is accessible when you have questions or need assistance. Along with traditional accountancy, he also incorporates Tax Planning and looking at ways of simplifying record keeping.

I would happily recommend Barry and his practice.

Why did the client select Focus Accountancy
This is perhaps best answered by a quote from Claudia Ruth Connelly – Director.
After consulting with other business owners in the same industry and following their recommendations we spoke to three individual firms. We were immediately impressed as a result of the conversation we had with Barry of Focus Accountancy. He showed genuine interest in us and our business and gave us some excellent advice and this was before we had even made a decision”.

We are absolutely delighted with the service we receive from Barry and his colleagues, the FreeAgent software is great at allowing us to see what is happening in the business from a financial point of view and plan accordingly. We feel confident we are now in control, they communicate with us on a regular basis and respond quickly to queries, furthermore they are friendly and nice people to deal with.
