Our methodology

The Creative Extra Programme



OuR NEW Breed of Accounting support

Yes, we are Accountants.  Yes, we'll file your accounts and tax returns
We believe that an Accounting firm should support it's customers way more than that.  We know that accountants are capable of doing so much more to support you that just acting as score keepers for HMRC and Companies House.  We believe that your accounting partner should be there to support you through every step of your journey, from start up to exit


and that's why we developed the Creative Extra methodology


1. Discovery

The first stage of our process is to work with you to understand your goals and aims. We do this both for the business and most importantly for you personally



Once we've worked out where you want to be, the next step is to create a financial plan to get you there.  Looking long term and then breaking that down into short 12 month forecasts and targets









Having the right financial systems, tools and processes will be the foundation for you to achieve your financial goals.  You may have worked out that we are huge fans of the world's most beautiful accounting software, Xero.  That's not without good reason! Your finance system isn't just the place where you enter data and produce your VAT return, it's the source of the information you use to make financial decisions.  


4. Financial Controller

With our Financial Controller support, we can use our expertise to free up your time, so you can concentrate on the growth of your agency.

We will support you by taking on roles such as:

  • Bookkeeping
  • Payroll
  • Preparing the VAT return
  • Paying suppliers & employees
  • Credit Control

We can take as much or as little of this work off your shoulders as you need





5. Financial Director

Using our Financial Director services will really help and support the growth of your agency.  We'll be providing

  • Monthly/ Quarterly Management Accounts
  • KPI dashboards
  • Cashflow Forecasting

In addition, you'll have your first FD on board.  By attending your Board meetings we'll add clarity to the important numbers and help make those important decisions, steering the agency in the right direction 

Extremely personal service, wellorganised and timely in communications (which suits my/our needs). Learned when it comes to digital marketing agencies requirements and able to provide answers to industry-specific queries, through experience
