GLOUCESTERSHIRE’S FIRST XERO GOLD PARTNER

WG Chartered Accountants demonstrates the thorough knowledge and service you would expect from an accountancy firm that has helped support and grow businesses for over 25 years. With an approachable, knowledgeable team of specialists WGCA works with a variety of businesses, from start-up ventures, family businesses and SMEs through to larger clients and beyond.

What sets us apart is the integration of sound, pragmatic and timely advice with game changing online solutions. We are proud to work with the Online Accountancy platform Xero, a system that we have wholeheartedly embraced and have introduced all of our clients too, with resounding success.

THE POWER OF CLOUD BASED ACCOUNTANCY

REDUCE ADMIN TIME

Integrated applications means data will be synced accurately between them, cutting down on the number of times information needs to be entered.

REAL TIME ACCESS TO YOUR DATA

Working in the cloud allows you to share data in real time with those who need it. Anyone can be given tailored access to any part of the system to ensure your business runs smoothly.

TAKE YOUR BUSINESS WITH YOU

Working in the cloud gives you and your team the freedom to work anywhere, whether you need to work from home or keep an eye on the business whilst away.

VALUABLE INSIGHTS INTO YOUR BUSINESS

Data syncs between applications in real time. For example, when a sale is made Xero is immediately updated, allowing you to make informed decisions about your business.

 

GROWS WITH YOU

 Cloud integrated software solutions can work with any size business and can be replicated easily at different locations. Once you have found the right formula for your business there is no limit to how quickly you can grow.

SEAMLESS, PAIN FREE INTEGRATION 

Once the systems are set up you will see instant results, data will start to flow between applications and your business will begin to work much more efficiently, freeing up time for you and your team.

COMBINED WITH THE WG’S EXPERT KNOWLEDGE

EXPERIENCED TEAM OF ADVISORS

Beyond the technical intricacies of accountancy, drawing on decades of experience working with clients, we understand the technological shift that today’s business success is becoming reliant on. With our knowledge and understanding of cloud based services we can advise you on which of the add-ons, from the hundreds available, that could benefit your business.

TRADITIONAL YET PROGRESSIVE SERVICE

We offer support on all the applications we implement, so if you have queries on any part of the system your assigned contact will be on hand to help. Support extends far beyond technical issues as we have a powerful team of skilled advisors and staff.

WE FOLLOW OUR OWN EXAMPLE

One of the many reasons why we have become Gloucestershire’s first Xero Gold Partner is our dedication to making the most of our systems, not only for clients but for ourselves. We wouldn’t recommend or encourage the use of systems that we haven’t seen great results from ourselves.

  • STEVE ROWLEY -- DIRECTORSTEVE ROWLEY VEHICLE SERVICES LIMITED
    With WG we never feel like we are just a customer. We can always ring up for a question or query and don’t have to worry about how much the phone call will cost. WG always has a good insight into our business so we don’t have to explain too much. They were also able to give us excellent advice on when to become a Limited Company, and in return, saved us a great deal of money.
  • NICK GLOVER -- MANAGING DIRECTORCURSEY TECHNOLOGY LIMITED
    Working with WG makes our lives so much easier; it is like having a financial director but without having to pay someone full-time! Simon is always present at our monthly board meetings. He offers us advice on important issues, covers the financial aspects that we sometimes struggle with, and always challenges us to achieve more. We have been with WG for over 10 years now which is testament to how well our relationship works.
  • SUSIE HAWKINS -- MANAGING DIRECTORSIMON SMITH GROUP
    WG bring an openness and knowledge of our business to the table, coupled with a desire to add value to our business and not just become an additional expense. We now have much more efficient monthly management accounts and a greater awareness of tax strategies, so we now keep a lot more of what we earn! The main benefit of working with WG is the regular assessment of our on-going strategy and by looking at the big picture they are constantly challenging us to develop our business.
  • OLIVER LATTER -- MANAGING DIRECTORBOOMECO
    You guys are so good that I don’t want to give you a testimonial in case my competitors find out…. Actually that would be quite a good testimonial wouldn’t it?!
  • PHIL ION -- MANAGING DIRECTORCORE LIGHTING
    BoardTalk meetings with WG are an important focus for us to take time out to think about where we are with the business, otherwise it would just continue with normal daily tasks. Having an independent voice/arbitrator when sometimes we may not agree, and also having an external viewpoint of the firm has been a huge help for us. From startup, WG have helped us get the whole business going commercially, including a review of the business strategy and helping to straighten out financial plans.
