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!”

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 Tax Returns
– 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 £100pm +VAT for the simplest of businesses, and most of our clients pay between £200 and £500 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 £80 +VAT. So what are you waiting for?

Common sense check: Got a mortgage offer from Lloyds Banking Group in October, for some additional borrowing.

Phoned them today to say "yes, let's draw the cash BUT we only need 75% of what you'd agreed to lend".

That's fine, they say - but if you want to borrow less, you'll have to make a whole new application from scratch!

Am I missing something? Certainly, if you want to borrow more they might have questions. But less?? Is there any logic to this?

If I'm going to start over, I guess it's time to re-assess the market again. Perhaps there are some more flexible lenders out there??

A trip to Beadell's might be on the cards...

You’ve got to love these lenders haven’t you!!

Yes it might sir! We’d love to see you again x

We use Blackdown Financial. They’ve had our back for years and take all the hassle out of it!

WAHOOOO! Penguin awareness day is finally here again!  Its important to Know Your Penguins.  Youll find the Blue Penguin Accountants sat down in the bottom left. Were not the flashiest of penguins.  But were better at tax returns that the rest of them put together.  #penguins

Not sure what this says about the honesty and integrity of the Blue Penguin if, as in this image, it prefers to "look the other way"!?

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.
