Explosive Productions Limited
We began working with David Allen, Chartered Accountants in 2004 when we decided to set up our own business. We had seen an opportunity and believed that we could create a really successful company.
From the very start we felt reassured that we were working with people who could help us with our ideas. They took the time to understand our business and what we wanted to achieve and explained the options available to us around business structures, the advantages and disadvantages of each and the tax implications. The advice was clear and easy to understand and we immediately felt that we were in safe hands.
Having our own business it was really important to us that we understood the financial side of things so that we could ensure we were making profits and operating effectively. Our Business Adviser at David Allen is Alison Welton. She worked with us and prepared business plans and forecasts to set out our expectations and monitor our results against this, which we found really useful. She also provided advice on tax planning opportunities and assisted in developing our bookkeeping system. We now use a Sage accounting system and with training and support from Alison’s team, we have access to regular management information which is key to the effective management of our business. The team at David Allen are on hand to help with any queries we have including VAT, Sage, payroll, accounting, tax, IT and even marketing.
Working with Alison and the team has helped our business to be a great success. They emphasised the importance of management and planning and by following their advice our business has grown year on year. We have invested in assets and we are continuing to expand into new areas.
Our business is doing really well and this has been helped with the support, guidance and practical advice we have received from Alison and her team at David Allen. I would recommend Alison to any business.
