Your financial partner

We see ourselves as your financial partner, not just your accountant, there when you need to discuss your ideas, concepts, key business decisions, or simply chat through what’s happening in your business right now. Although we’re qualified accountants, you should think of us as business people who are very good with financial information more…

Understanding your business

Your business deserves an accountant that takes the time to understand what you do, how you do it and can communicate accounting terminology without confusing you! An open line of communication (without additional cost) is also essential to encourage successful, proactive, and timely tax planning more…

We love technology

We love technology.  Utilising the latest technology to provide you with a seamless service whilst maximising efficiency seems obvious to us. This includes the use of solutions such as Xero, Receipt Bank, a full practice management suite that allows clients to electronically sign documents and a document management software more…

Stephen Barrett opened our eyes to new age accounting! We now use Receipt Bank and Xero cloud software which was the recommendation of Stephen after a very useful and friendly first meeting that put us at ease, we new then we where putting our business accounts in a safe pair of hands.

I cannot recommend SBA highly enough. If you need a ‘normal person’ as an accountant who also has a sense of humour, then Steve Barrett is the person. Another thing I would say about Steve is that it is clear that he cares about my business as much as I do.

Steve has helped me with, what I thought were messy Self Assessment issues, (and with the 31st January approaching, also slightly concerning!). With SBA’s help and the software employed, it was quick, efficient, hassle free, trustworthy and friendly service. I can’t recommend him enough.
