CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS
- WITH A TWIST!

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!

Your 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 best accountant I have ever had.”

“My financial therapist!”

TIME, LIKE MONEY, SHOULD NEVER BE WASTED​

If weekends or evenings are the only time you’re free, that’s fine. We don’t expect you to conform to our hours or to come to our offices – frankly, they’re not much to look at anyway.

Time is precious so we never waste it. No vanity newsletter or complex financial statements (unless you want them). 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.

We Have No ‘B’ Team

We value every client account. Whatever the size of your business you’ll be looked after by an experienced accountant – not by a trainee or somebody recently qualified (we don’t have any of those anyway).

We have a clear, easy to understand charging policy. Our fees reflect the value of our advice and the quality of our customer 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 and bookkeeping tasks, including:

– Management Accounts
– Year-End Accounts
– Bookkeeping and VAT
– Tax Advisory and Compliance
– Audit Preparation
– Payroll and Auto-Enrolment

Best of all, we don’t smell of fish!

speak to the 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. It’s what gets us up in the morning and what drives us on.

So if you’re looking for an accountant who is more in tune with your business – and with you as a person – give us a call.

We can carry out an initial financial assessment and give you recommendations for as little as £60 +VAT. So what are you waiting for?

Lots of talk in the news about small businesses struggling to get paid and how it can have a massive effect on their survival.  Large retailers tend to work on 90 days (or longer) payment terms - but can your business afford to wait that long for your money??  Those of you who use Blue Penguin will know that all our clients pay via GoCardless 15 days after we raise our invoice.  So, weve decided to practice what we preach and have signed up to the Prompt Payment Code.  Blue Penguin has committed to pay all its suppliers within 15 days of their invoice. Because if we ask our customers to do that, why should our suppliers expect any different?  And, frankly, if your accountant is struggling to pay their suppliers in good time, what does that say about their skills in running a business!?

Good shout. I’ll always process invoices as quick as I can (there are always one or two that slip the net, as you know). I have a lot of self employed staff and they need a wage, as we all do. If I don’t pay promptly, they’ll just go to someone that does

Ive just finished reading this book. Would anyone like to have it after me?  Its essentially telling us that problems around your data cant be solved just by throwing buzzwords at them.  Which is interesting as theres a lot of that going on right now.  This book is about data, but the same is very true of Blockchain, AI, Machine Learning and so on....they all have their place BUT if an accountant tells you they use these (or even leverage them *shudders*) ask them to explain  what they actually mean.

Some light relief to help you get back into the swing of it after the beautiful bank holiday (and let's be fair, if you're on Facebook reading this, you need it!).

Can you do better? What other crazy excuses have you heard for missing deadlines in your industry?I found my wife in the bath with my accountant, pirates stole my accounts, a volcano erupted, goats ate my accounts and prevented me from filing – these are ...

We like to think we’re great at what we do. But hearing it from someone just like you would be better…

I was extremely impressed with Peter. He was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, explaining tax in a clear and understandable way. I would highly recommend the Blue Penguin!”

Blue Penguin have been our accountants since day one and have made everything easier, faster and more understandable for our team. They have gone above and beyond when we needed emergency work done quickly and at awkward times. We wholeheartedly recommend them to any small business.
