“Payroll, pensions, VAT, bookkeeping, plus managing furlough. There is no way I could have dealt with all that and Meades have taken all the pressure off me.”
“I spoke with Louise and Paul and they just understood the challenges that people like me face and what we need.”
“I’ve made the right choice and, as such, I’m really happy.”
“Working with Meades, there’s an openness, a clarity and a responsiveness.”
“They’re forthcoming with advice and recommendations that you wouldn’t necessarily know to ask…”
"I should have done it years ago."
"[Natasha] fixes things, notices things and flag things up like allowances we aren’t making the most of. She’s been brilliant."
"…the honest truth is that I wish I’d been there earlier, because I’m impressed."
"They made it easy to switch…It was very straightforward and painless."
"As an overall package, it's excellent. It just takes away all the effort. For someone who's got a small limited company like myself, the overall package I'm on, [the Silver service] means it's all sorted out. It's all so much easier - we can just get on with what we're doing and they oversee the running of the company."
"It takes very little time for me - maybe 10 minutes a week. The fact that they have an end-to-end service so they can manage any aspect of my account. They're also responsive and they're just generally nice people."
"They allow you to spend more time working and less time doing your accounts. I really, really hardly ever think about my accounts. That's what's so nice about it. I probably spend no more than 10-15 minutes per week, including doing my invoices. That's key for me - that I don't have to spend any time on my accounts. They also ensure I stay tax efficient, legal and they do the payroll."
"Working with them is brilliant. I couldn't ask for anything more."
"In November 2011, we were appointed by an IT Consultancy, referred by an existing client for whom we had saved a significant amount of tax. Challenge was to minimise tax liabilities whilst keeping the company and client compliant with HMRC."
"Thanks again for spending the time to go through the cash flow and explaining everything so clear and precise. Particularly impressed how quickly you got these figures back to me, in a language I can even understand! You've been awarded 'Super Hero' in my books."
"I am extremely grateful for all the work already done by Meades on my behalf and am gob smacked at some of the things that you are uncovering."
"Can I just say thank you so much for your support before I went on holiday, your email about my dividend and your fantastic dashboard was just what I needed."
"Many thanks for the Amazon voucher - that was very kind and much appreciated."
"Thanks for your email, it is quite nice to get and ad-hoc view on what should be done and what shouldn't. I think these kind of things are missed in most accountancy companies."
"Louise and her colleagues have provided excellent knowledge and service for initial set up of my new LTD which was so beneficial to a novice to the contracting world like myself. The communications and instructions around submittal of information and dates for returns have been very clear with plenty of notice allowed. Updates provided as to the status of the process and actions for completion are also very helpful. With nothing but positive experiences so far I have absolute confidence in recommending Louise & Co to all colleagues and friends."
"I've been contracting now for over 20 years and I've been a client of Louise for 4 years and I can honestly say that she beats all my previous accountants hands down in every respect, efficiency, attention to detail, response time and approachable and friendly. I could not recommend her more highly."
"Meades Contractors understands our business. We value their expert advice, consistent prompt responses and high standard of professionalism from their services."
"It's Meades' service and professional edge that keep me doing what I love doing both in and outside work."
"I have been a contractor for over 7 years now. As a qualified accountant myself, I was determined to save myself money by maintaining my own payroll, cashbook and producing my own annual accounts. It was a big mistake! I spent many evenings and weekends wrestling with the latest accounting standards and tax changes, a massive false economy. For a very reasonable, tax deductable fee, Meades & Co have relieved me of this burden and demonstrated in the process several tax efficiencies that I had been missing all along."
"Louise has looked after my accounts since day one of setting up as a contractor. In this time, she has provided very helpful advice with great communication and a fast and efficient service. Outlining my key figures for me regularly, Louise has helped me stay on top of my tax contributions and allowed me to focus on my business without the day to day accountancy worries."
"When starting as a contractor, I had didn't have much knowledge on running a limited company. Louise helped me with everything, giving me continuous advice on tax related questions and taking care of pretty much all of my business and personal tax administration."
"Louise's accounting knowledge has helped me negotiate the complicated world of contracting through a limited company. She has provided expert assistance on many areas from IR35 proof contracts to taking away the headache of quarterly VAT returns and full year financials. Louise is a dedicated and tenacious accountant and I can thoroughly endorse her work to any future clients."
"I have found Louise to be very conscientious and diligent accountant. Louise takes very good care to prepare and present your accounts in a professional manner. I have every confidence in her advice and what she does for my company. Highly recommended."
"Louise is helpful, knowledgeable, patient and pro-active. I would recommend her for similar services to my colleagues as a professional and amiable person."
"Moving to Meades and Co was one of the best decisions I have made. Unlike the usual formula based service that most accountants provide to contractors, Louise Williamson and her team give you a friendly, personal service which is both proactive and efficient. Nothing is too much trouble and my questions have always been answered quickly and accurately. They really do provide an excellent service and have saved me a great deal of money."
"Taking the leap into the world of contracting can be stressful and daunting. With the one-to-one help, guidance and expertise Meades and Co provided have me over the past year and half, I am able to concentrate 100% of my efforts on my clients. Help is on hand whenever I have questions or need advice, they offer a great personalised service where you are not just generic customer, you are an individual with specific needs."
"Having Meades as the accountants while operating my own limited company provided me with piece of mind I will never forget.All the dealings with the HMRC, company accounts cessation, personal tax etc. - done to perfections.When I decide to start my own company again, one thing I will already have in place - great accountants that Meades and Co. really are!"
"I have been a client of Paul's for several years now. Paul's company have provided me with an outstanding service and is always there to answer any questions and give advice at the highest level, whenever requested. I have very high regard for Paul and his team and would certainly recommend Meades and Co to any prospective client wishing to get innovative accountancy solutions and to feel they are 'in safe hands'."
