CHOOSE BLUE PENGUIN

When you run a small business there’s no job description. Your days are taken up with customers, staff and working out how to grow your business. Talking to your accountant is way down the list of priorities.

But we are worth talking to!

The right Chartered Accountant can reduce your tax bill, help you fund sustainable growth and keep you on the right side of HMRC. We also save you a lot of time and trouble.

“Would highly recommend. Very approachable. Pete and Ace are lovely.”

“The difference is remarkable. Peter saved us thousands within an hour of working together.”

“My financial therapist!”

TIME, LIKE MONEY, SHOULD NEVER BE WASTED​

Time is precious so we never waste it. No vanity newsletters or complex financial statements. We tell you how to keep your business compliant, solvent and successful. What you need to know, when you need to know it, and in plain English.

Don’t spend your time trying to ‘get past the receptionist’ or being fobbed off with this month’s new starter who doesn’t even know your name let alone your business.

We Have No ‘B’ Team

Remember, anyone can call themselves an ‘accountant’ and promise you the world. Crazily, it’s not a protected title. So make sure you entrust your business to a firm with “Chartered” in their name. It’s the hallmark of at least six years’ training and professional development to get to where we are today.

We value every client. Whatever the size of your business you’ll be looked after by an experienced accountant – not by a trainee, or somebody who only just qualified.

We have a clear, easy to understand charging policy. Our annual fees are spread over 12 months, and reflect the value of our advice and the quality of our service.

Why is an Accountant Like a Penguin?

Penguins, like accountants, come in various forms. The big Emperor penguin, the fancy Macaroni penguin, and the Blue penguin (smallest of the lot). They are all penguins.

The ponderous Emperor must consume vast quantities of fees (sorry, fish) to keep going. The Macaroni likes you to admire its fine suit and offices (sorry, plumage). And there’s the humble Blue penguin – does all the penguin stuff while being more nimble and endearing.

Unlike a real penguin, we can help with all the regular accountancy tasks, including:

– Management Accounts
– Year-End Accounts
– Tax Advisory and Personal Tax Returns
– Payroll and Auto-Enrolment
– Companies House filing

Best of all, we don’t smell of fish!

Work with Blue Penguin

We don’t take ourselves too seriously (you’ve probably got that message). But we do take your finances and business success very seriously – so much so that, if we don’t think we’re going to be a good fit for your business, we’ll be honest – unlike a lot of accountancy firms, we don’t just take on clients because they have a chequebook and a pulse…

Absolutely confidence inspiring team. Because of Peter and the team’s support and advice, I (a senior medical professional) took on a new venture, with a new way of working and also a new way of getting paid! Peter has made the time to guide me through all the steps in the process, and strikes a great balance between not assuming I know anything, but not being patronising either. Highly recommended!

I cannot recommend Shelley enough! She has been an absolute dream to work with, always happy to help no matter what time of day it is. I’ve been running a business for 7 years now & always struggled finding a good accountant that’s fast, informative and happy to help. Shelley has ticked all of these boxes and saved me so much time and energy when it comes to taxes. Thank you so much!

Really responsive and friendly service. I signed up last year having left my self assessment (which was the first time I’d needed to do this) to almost the last minute thinking it can’t be that hard. It was! So I looked into a few accountants and was tempted by the “blue penguin” name and the no nonsense approach. Second tax return just completed super early this time. I am very happy with the Hassle free and friendly service I get Well worth the monthly fee ! by Peter from Blue Penguin

Peter, Mark…the entire Penguin team are amazing. They are very knowledgeable and always available to answer questions. They were great in helping me navigate the way HMRC works as I’m from the US and the IRS has a very different tax code. Definitely recommend!

Peter / Blue Penguin has been managing my accounts for both of my companies since 2018, and since then I've recommended Blue Penguin to many other people. There are not many accountancy firms with common sense, who are also proactive and spot things you may not have spotted yourself. They respond to queries promptly, and go the extra mile to get things right. Looking forward to growing my business over the next few years with the support of Peter, Shelley and the team
