When we embarked on our management buy out, we appointed Ascentis to manage the transition. They unravelled what to us was a minefield of complex transactions, giving us accurate management accounts and keeping all of our customers and suppliers happy. Then they put in place systems to capture our costs for our R&D tax refunds, and an Enterprise Management Incentive share scheme. First class accounting and taxation expertise, and highly recommended by the whole board of directors here at Refractiv.
We moved to Ascentis because we needed not just accountants, but tax specialists too. In the first year they restructured our business property ownership, put in place a tax efficient share scheme for a new director, and concluded an inquiry the Revenue were running with us that our old accountant just didn’t seem to be able to resolve. They also changed our accounting systems enabling us to monitor profit on a job by job basis. Their depth of knowledge, from both an accounts and tax perspective, is a fantastic resource for our business
Ascentis have been our accountants and business advisers since day one. We look for their objective advice on every major financial decision we make. They have also helped and advised the Company on numerous tax planning issues, including latterly our R&D Tax Credits. If you're looking for accountant who'll provide really valuable business and taxation advice, I'd recommend you speak to John and the team at Ascentis
Our company provides a SaaS text message application to over 55% of UK universities and colleges, as such we have to manage a 'stock' of many million's of SMS message credits on behalf of our customers. Ascentis designed and maintained a system that tracks sales, purchases and virtual stock levels, with an accuracy that has given us complete control and confidence over our internal financial information. I'm more than happy to recommend John and the team at Ascentis to anyone who values accurate management accounting in the same way that we do
As a typical Yorkshireman I keep a very keen eye on costs! We know exactly what we are paying for and exactly how much. There are never any surprises and we get great value for money. I’d be happy to speak to anyone who is thinking of changing to Ascentis. They’ve been our accountants since the company’s creation, and provided us with over ten years of excellent business and tax advice, delivered with passion and enthusiasm
