The previous accountant had been with RMF since day one, they did a good job, the reports were very comprehensive, but we felt their approach was very traditional and all we got were the figures.
What appealed to us about working with Pentlands was that Elinor came in and we could see she is more holistic, more global, she’ll look at lots of different elements of our business. Our management accounts are no longer only about the figures, it is much more strategic.

The business had been stable for quite a few years and was steadily ticking along. I decided the time was right to refocus my attention and plan for the future that would deliver for our clients, provide new opportunities for the team and allow me more time to work on the business as well as in it.
Whilst we were happy enough with our former accountant, they were very traditional in their approach and services. I was aware that Pentlands took a different approach and began their business performance improvement programme. Pentlands’ approach and advice, delivered so much more than help with the figures! Working with Elinor has enabled me to see opportunities and go for them with increased confidence and enthusiasm. I am so excited about the future.

Pentlands have a very different approach. They are far more proactive in setting meetings for us to go through detail and discuss future growth strategies. You get to meet real people and they communicate in a ‘real’ language.
With Pentlands support we moved our accounts to Xero making it easier to process information directly to HMRC, meeting the Making Tax Digital requirements. We are also able to analyse information in more depth which is of real value in making decisions.
Moving to Pentlands was the best decision we could have made. They just ‘get it’ and understand our needs.
David Hooper, Director, Independent Freight Ltd.
Pentlands offer so much more than day-to-day accountancy services. We have faced the challenges of a very aggressive growth curve, more than doubling our team in less than 18 months. James has taken the time to listen and understand, and Pentlands flexible approach means the services are very much customised to our needs.
When it comes to the growth of the business, we really value James’s advice and guidance. He doesn’t just tell us what we want to hear, he will challenge our thinking and present a range of options for us to consider. In my experience Pentlands make life easy, you want a team around you that you can trust, and we trust Pentlands.
Richard Peachey, Client Director & Co-founder, 5874 Design Ltd.
‘Work smarter not harder’ something we have certainly achieved with the support of Pentlands. Since working with them we have improved cost effectives, increased our profit margins, developed the capabilities within the team and maintained year-on-year growth.
Working in logistics, there is an expectation to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, however, my 3 business partners and I now each only work 3 days a week. I think of Pentlands as an extension of our board. As far as we are concerned Elinor is part of New Horizon – her sound advice and expertise has enabled us to achieve a fantastic work-life balance whilst earning more
Paul Massey, Director, New Horizon Logistics.
Can I finally just take this opportunity to say once again how good it has been working with Pentlands in general. For the first time in my entire career, I have found a firm who make the business of accounting simple and explain clearly everything I need to know. Add to that the fact that we feel welcomed and listened to as a company as well as individuals and it is no surprise that we will be happily recommending your services at every opportunity!

Since 2006, Pentlands have been responsible for a number of accounting and advisory functions for Fuel Recruitment. During this time our business has seen significant growth and consequently we have faced a number of business challenges which Pentlands have assisted with.
There are many accountants in the market place but we were keen to work with a service provider who took the time to understand our business in depth and add value to the company as a whole and not just produce figures on a monthly basis.
Mark Esom, Managing Director of Fuel Recruitment.
