5 reasons not to work with PPF

Are we the right accountancy firm for you? Most people would give you reasons on why you should choose an accountant – but we’re not most people, so here are some reasons why you shouldn’t work with us!

Reason 1 - You're not a limited company (or looking to become one)

We only work with owners of limited companies who want a better life for themselves, their business and their families.  We work with directors who are searching for an accountant who does more than just tick boxes, and who want professional support at every step of their journey.

Reason 2 - We’re not the cheapest

But not most expensive either! It’s our job to bring value to you, all the time, when working with you.  We strive to continually improve our service and not rest on our laurels.  We also give you a peace of mind guarantee on your accounts – we get it done on time and right.  This great service though comes at a cost, and we believe we offer excellent value to our clients.  You can read more about how we price our services in our pricing blog.

Reason 3 - If you won’t embrace Xero and our add on apps

We only work with Xero cloud accounting software, with our add on app Receipt Bank - we won’t work with spreadsheets, or any other software!  We believe that Xero, along with Receipt Bank and 1Tap, is an excellent financial grounding for our clients, and when used correctly we can access so many other great services like cashflow forecasting, budgeting, credit control, etc, to really help your business to grow.

Reason 4 - You don’t like pink!

Haha, well I’m kind of being serious.  If you want corporate traditional accountants then that’s just not us!  As I said above, we are not most people.  We use apps/cloud software (see reason 2 above),  our branding is quite out there really compared to most ‘normal’ accountants, we like to have fun!

We also work around our families. We are only in the office until 4pm, after then we are juggling family life – we don’t work evenings or weekends. We will always assist with a really urgent issue, but sometimes we will be ‘off the grid’ while we enjoy family time. 

We also have our kids in the office or work from home during school holidays or if our kids are sick.  We also welcome our clients to bring in their kids for appointments if needed – we are fully child friendly in our new offices.   You can find more on our values here.

Reason 5 - You don’t want to pay by monthly direct debit

All of our limited company packages are charged on a monthly basis, and payments are collected by DD.  This is a benefit to you as well as us – no large bills – you can budget and plan your cashflow much easier this way, and so can we!.  When you first become a client with PPF we will ask you to complete a Direct Debit mandate as part of our onboarding process.
