Finance Monthly - Global Awards 2021

Firstly - please give us an overview of BKPS Ltd, the work that you do, your clients and the services you offer. What are your core values and goals? How do these contribute to your overall success? Have these core values changed at all since your establishment? BKPS do compliance work like statutory accounts and tax returns but we believe accountants should be far more than a "distress purchase". We believe we help our clients to get the most from their businesses to achieve their personal goals for themselves and their families. Businesses can be a wonderful thing, providing goods and services to their customers they may not have had if it weren't for the business, provide regular income for its employees, and of course a good life for the owner and their family. Successful businesses also become a key part of the community, paying taxes, business rates and sometimes contributions to charities and the local community. We provide strong and extensive advisory services to clients to enable startups to survive and grow, established businesses to get to the next level and help business owners achieve their personal ambitions through their business. What kind of clients do you serve and how do you approach them? How do you differentiate yourself from potential competitors? What is, essentially, your unique selling point? BKPS have clients all over England - we have tradesmen, consultants, hospitality (pubs and restaurants), engineering businesses developing underground tunnelling excavators, consultants, haulage companies. Over 90% of our clients are referrals from existing clients. Our USP are our advisory services. Like all accountants, BKPS provide bookkeeping, payroll, compliance work etc. but unlike most accountants, we provide additional services to make our clients' lives easier and give their businesses greater chances of success. We work with our clients to drill down into the numbers. We start with what the business owner wants from their business, lifestyle, retire earlier, spend more time with their family. Then we look at what the business has to deliver to achieve the business owners personal goals, then we look at where their business is now and devise a strategy through Performance Measurement & Improvement (PMI) analysis to get the business to where it needs to be to satisfy the business owners goals.
