​The Accountants Growth Academy

​26 accountants from 9 firms came together this time to focus on starting and mastering advisory conversations with clients.

When a firm halves the number of tax returns done in January and reduces overtime to a third of last year, whilst also being one person less in the tax team, we know that the workflow improvements are hitting home. And when team members are so engaged we also know that the future of these firms is looking good.

Hearing Rob Walsh (from Clear Vision Accountancy) talk about his 15 years of advisory work from humble origins, plenty of mistakes, to now, when his firm leads with advisory work was inspiring. And then to see how to turn every year-end accounts meeting into a future-focussed advisory discussion has set the firms on the road to more advisory work and fees. We look forward to the accountability meetings and calls to see how they put these insights to work.

​Because technology, client expectations and MTD are changing at such a rate you and your firm can’t afford to stay in the dark.

With the first stage of MTD going live in April, QBConnect in February means your team can see and hear what’s happening. When they do they’ll return to your firm and help you get the rest of your team to buy-in to the changes that are necessary. Necessary for firms to survive and thrive in 2019 and beyond (can you believe next year we’ll be celebrating another decade?)

​Accountants Growth Academy

​32 accountants from 11 firms came together this time to focus on creating a firm that both attracts and keeps high quality people.

The firms have made measurable progress removing the January tax return spike and the March year-end spike in November and December. Every firm is starting to see how they can flatten the workflow of accounts and tax and reduce the unnecessary and often demoralising impact of a mad-hat December and January. The profitability improvements from better pricing process is also really showing up now.

Hearing Simon Chaplin’s (from GreenStones) perspective on running his firm was enlightening and inspirational too. Hearing about the power and value of clear and committed company values has shaken a few firms into action on this already.
The feedback and the action taken in the accountability meetings and calls since the workshop means Simon and especially Simon’s comment about “creating a firm worthy of attracting new team members” struck home.

​Here’s what Laurie Riley, Managing Partner of a multi-owner firm in Shrewsbury, had to say recently about their first workshop with Paul:

“I’m not sure we have ever received such a positive reaction from the whole group, and what made it even more satisfying for me was that the ones we thought would be cynical, were anything but! A great achievement, which bodes well for the future.”

Paul is renowned for bringing passion and practical insight and a good degree of grit to his presentations. Expect to be challenged!

Paul’s passion for the accountancy profession was forged in his experience of growing, from scratch, a £1m manufacturing business and the lack of help he received from his accountant at the time. Paul bought custom premises, opened a London showroom and expanded into Europe, the Middle East and USA. And on the eve of selling the business to a committed buyer the team walked out to set up their own business making the sale worthless. This business education underpins Paul’s determination to inspire accountants to genuinely be the trusted business advisers to owner managed businesses.

“The Remarkable Practice approach to marketing is simple and it's worked for us. Paul's regular visits and telephone support have provided the insight and ensured that we keep focus. As a result we have developed and fine-tuned a marketing model that works.”

Rob Walsh , MD at Clear Vision Accountancy Group

“Paul helps us think less like accountants and more like business owners, with the correct focus of running our own business superbly well and achieving the personal and business goals set out by all the key members of the management team.”

Andrew Botham , Chief Executive at Mayes Business Partnership

“We knew there was a better way to run our practice but never seemed to quite work it out. The increased profit, increased cash reserves and growth of the firm we are now enjoying is remarkable. The process of working with Paul and his team has definitely paid off.”

Wayne Hockley , Owner at Anthony Russel
