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.

Monthly packages start from £80pm +VAT for the simplest of businesses, and most of our clients pay between £150 and £300 per month for a really great relationship with their  Chartered Accountant.

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

This was the view from my chair this morning, as I did my bit for the UKs barley supply.  Currently on a train to Chesterfield ready to meet with Shane Lukas and the good people at AVN Inspiring Accountants this week.  I hope the weather is just as good up country...

Ive been away camping. ⛺  The Blue Penguin team went down to East Crinnis Holiday Park - I highly recommend it.  I dont like working when Im on holiday and for this reason, I leave the laptop at home.  But sometimes a client will call me with something urgent I can help with over the phone. In that case, Ill drop everything (including my pint) and sort them out.  Your business doesnt stop just because Ive dashed off to Cornwall.  When youre paying a premium for your accountant - as our clients do - you should get a Batphone ☎ to a named contact, which is always on.  If your accountant doesnt offer that, youre doing it wrong! 💙🐧

Not far from me! Hope you are enjoying out beautiful weather ☀️☀️

Looks lovely

Unless You Want To Have Sex With Your Accountant…stop asking how much they charge per hour.

What you really want to know is how much your accounts/tax return/bookkeeping is going to cost. And you think “by the hour” is the only way accountants charge.

But when you ask this question, you also need to ask “how long will the work take”. And then you’ve got to do some mental maths.

Even if the number in your head seems about right, you really won’t know the cost until the work is done and you get the bill. And, frankly, neither does your accountant. That’s just not fair on you, the customer.

We don’t ‘do’ hourly.

We’ll ask some questions about the size of your business, the number of transactions, the quality of your record keeping and so on. From that, we’ll give you a monthly fee for the work you’d like us to do. It means NO SURPRISES when it comes to the cost.

If your accountant is still, frankly, making up a price after they’ve done the work, find one who is based in the 21st century. Like Blue Penguin... 💙🐧

Have a great weekend!

Love this 😂👌👍

Calm down lad

Well said Pete x

A lot of our clients ask about Tax Enquiry Insurance. Basically, it means you get to fight HMRC free of charge if they raise an Enquiry, regardless of the outcome. That's satisfying.

For all my medical clients out there, here's a recent case (not a client of ours, I should say) where that policy allowed the doctor in question to robustly fight off HMRC.

Without knowing you could fight it all the way, others may have been forced to give in...

Take that, HMRC! 😎

Reviews

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.
