www.wealthandfinance-intl.com 33 Best Tax Advisory Firm for Businesses – UK A multi-award winning London Practice, Bambridge Accountants is located in the heart of Covent Garden and specialis- es in providing accountancy and tax advice to the creative industries. Company: Bambridge Accountants E-Mail: [email protected] Web Address: www.bambridgeaccountant.co.uk Telephone: 020 3757 9290 Bambridge Accountants was established in 2010 by founding partner Alistair Bambridge who noticed a gap in the market for accountants who understood the complexities and demands of the creative industry but could also speak their language. Alistair Bambridge states “the ability to listen to a client and understand their unique circumstances, whilst consistently providing clear and insightful advice, is what we believe distinguishes Bambridge Accountants from our competitors. We pride ourselves on being a knowledgeable and understand- ing company that offers a high quality and efficient service to all of our clients, unrivalled by other companies of our size.” Dedicating his practice towards supporting creative individuals, Alistair provides expert advice in areas including creative industry tax relief and the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme for clients who are looking to develop their own technology. Not even a decade since inception, within the last five years, Bambridge Accountants have experience exponential growth as it gains respect and accolade for its tax advisory service to the creative community. Proud of his firm’s accomplishments and growth founding partner Alistair Bambridge commented, “Bambridge Accountants started five years ago with one client, today we have over 700. We are delighted to have won the award for ‘Best Tax Advisory Firm for Business’ and to have been recognised by the Wealth and Finance Business Awards for our hard work.” Looking to the future and expansion of the company Alistair offered that, “We have ambitious plans to grow and expand our practise over the com- ing year but are committed to ensuring that we maintain our high standard of personal service which we pride ourselves upon and which our clients expect and deserve.” In the last year Bambridge Accountants have also expanded their services to provide expatriate tax services for Americans living abroad. “The interaction of UK and US taxes is something we have found to be of growing interest of our clients.” Alistair continues. “Within our small practice we now have an expert team of tax advisers and IRS enrolled agents who have extensive experience in the field of expat tax preparation.” Undoubtedly one of the keys to their success is how Bambridge Accountants blaze their own trail with regards to operations. “Rather than following the industry-wide practice of charging clients on an hourly basis we offer compet- itively priced fixed rate and task based billing for all of our services and work with clients to find an accountancy and tax strategy which fits their individual needs. This allows us to instil comfort and reassurance, which is greatly valued by our clients” Alistair comments. Specialising within the creative industries, Bambridge Accountants pre- dominantly work with actors; however, over the years they have seen their client base increase to include directors and producers within both film and television as well as professionals within other performing arts fields such as musicians, dancers and artists. While the preparation of both UK and US personal tax returns is the mainstay for the company Bambridge Accountants also offer services for companies including the preparation of company accounts, bookkeeping, VAT returns and payroll services. With clear plans for growth, Bambridge Accountants can also boast about its client satisfaction record with a recent survey showing that 95% of clients would use them again and over 87% recommend their services to others, Bambridge Accountants are willing to take a bow for their recent awards, but stand ready to perform again.
