There are benefits in working with us.
Since the accounting practice was formed in 1994 when we operated as Le Claire & Partners to when we became Baker Tilly Channel Islands in 2003 and subsequently, our clients have over the years come to respect and trust our expertise and experience.
In addition, we are particularly flexible to meet the accounting needs of various clients whether from the clearly itemised data of the larger corporate client to the "bulging envelope" of documents from the multi-tasking owner-manager who needs a little bit of "hand holding" from a trusted accountant.
1. Quick turnaround
In order to efficiently service our clients, whilst also working to their fixed budget for accounting services, we took the strategic decision to structure our team differently. We therefore removed endless layers of review.
Our flat structure is typically a two person team.
For our clients, this has three distinct advantages,
2. Close collaboration to meet clients’ needs
The structure and experience of our service lines allow us to assist you in many professional services.
Our accounting clients, particularly the growing Small and Medium Size Enterprise (SME) who often need some "hand holding" can benefit from the significant experience of our audit team, who routinely deal with complex accounting matters and the related financial statement disclosures.
Sharing this experience enables us to provide our accounting clients with unique insights to more efficiently run their businesses.
Likewise the tax team supports the larger accounting clients that have complex tax disclosure requirements and owner managed business client as in the Channel Islands shareholders, rather than companies, bear the tax load so you will benefit from a close collaboration between our teams in handling your affairs.
This "one stop centre" approach enables us to efficiently provide you with a quality service, at very competitive rates.
3. Use of technology to improve on quality
In addition to using bookkeeping and accounting software, we also use process management software including review templates and accounting standard disclosure checklists.
These enable us to provide an efficient service and financial statements that meet accounting standards (including US GAAP, UK GAAP and IFRS).
4. A commercial approach that makes life easier
Whilst we are independent accountants, a number of our clients have come to appreciate that our approach is to "work with them, not against them."
This means that we provide some guidance, on the basis of our experience to assist them to complete their accounting requirements, with minimum fuss.
