“I first appointed Chris Douglass and Beam Accountancy as the accountants to my company. As my company expanded and thoughts turned to an exit strategy I appointed Chris as Finance Director. Chris implemented a computerised financial and project accounting system which freed up management time. He also implemented budgetary and management accounting information systems which focused the company on achieving its financial objectives.
When the company was being sold, I engaged Chris to liaise with the buyers professional advisers on the financial and tax due diligence, and by defending the EBIT figure with vigour he ensured the sales price was maximised.
Since then I have continued to use Chris as my accountant in my new business ventures.
Despite being a Spurs fan, Chris has always proved to be an excellent business sounding board, allowing me to discuss business plans and ideas whilst offering objective support. His advice has proved to be solid and accurate. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris for both excellent business advisory assistance as well as in a financial and taxation accountancy role.”
