Hear From Our Clients…
Rachel Wilson, BHSc (Hons) OT MSc, Occupational Therapist
“A sole-trading healthcare practitioner, I was quite happy plodding along with lots of misconceptions about business within my specialism. I hated talking about money and I was even worse at managing it. Tax was a taboo subject, and the thought of incorporating was just a no-go for me.
“After a two hour initial chat with Andy, A LOT of laughing and feeling completely at ease, he empowered me to break through the glass ceiling I had created, and I have never looked back!
“I incorporated and now have a full time employee, three associates, a larger office and my income has increased significantly two years on the trot with a business plan indicating further significant growth over the next five years. It has all felt natural, and a long way from where I thought I would be two years ago! Never did I expect an accountant could have this much of an impact on me or my business!
“Andy is a knowledgeable chap, yet full of fun and down to earth with it. He has become a mentor as well as an accountant… and I always look forward to my end of year catch-ups now, knowing I can seek advice in between as and when I need to. His team are also great, and really prompt at responding to any queries or concerns! I can recommend Positive Accountants 100%.”
Catherine Atton, Westwood Laboratories
“We have used Andy Lock as our accountant since 2001. Andy provides a personal, professional service. He has a wealth of knowledge combined with a matter of fact yet personable manner and explains even the most complex of accounting matters in an easy to understand way.
“All of his staff are highly knowledgeable in accountancy and financial matters. We always receive a prompt response to any query, whether it’s to do with taxation, Payroll, HMRC or Sage.
“We would highly recommend Positive Accountants to those who are thinking of seeking professional accounting services.”
John Charters-Reid, Charters Reid Surveyors Ltd.
“Andy Lock and his team have been our accountants now for almost seven years. During that time I have found him to be extremely helpful and he has produced a number of money-saving initiatives, many of which are related to tax and earnings.
“Andy became our accountant when our previous accountant suddenly decided to leave. I would not hesitate to recommend Positive Accountants.
“If you are reading this and thinking of using Positive Accountants, why not give me a call and I would be happy to spend some time with you.”
Ned Hoste & Jacky Fitt, The Big Ideas Collective
“As busy ‘creatives’ we are always up to something, anything, other than our accounts. Andy ensures we don’t get arrested.
“Andy and his team are part of ours, they are marvellous.”
Jeremy Powell, Ryedale Entertainment Ltd.
“Andy Lock of Positive Accountants became my company’s accountant when my previous accountant was prepared to allow my company to receive a fine as a consequence of being either unable or willing to support us.
“I cannot believe the amount of help Andy provides and his pure enthusasim is all that is needed to show that he cares about and enjoys what he does. I feel that Andy works for me and not the government and he ensures that I pay the right and sensible amount of tax and keeps my company legal in its obligations.
“It is difficult to describe the amount of confidence I feel from this hero of the numbers who I have always given my books to. Yet he never chides (unlike other accountants I have dealt with) nor does he lecture. He is enthusiastic and I have learnt more about my books in the time I have dealt with Andy that I have over the last sixteen years I have been in business. No one has taken the amount of time to explain what is meant by the Balance Sheet or the Profit and Loss.
“I heartily recommend Positive Accountants to anyone wanting an accountant with a human face.”
Liz Kemp, Kemps General Store
“I just wanted to say what a brilliant help Jane has and continues to be to us – particularly to Jonathan. We realise she has been investing a great deal of time to our accounts and our Quickbooks learning processes. I wanted to express our thanks to you
“What a huge help her support has been during this initial setting up period. Thanks again.”
