Client - Jenny Derham t/a Tonic Beauty Salon, Town Street, Horsforth
Well I don't really know where to start with this as there is so much I would like to cover but I will try, as I feel reading this will help you decide if AJC Accounting is for you and your business.
I have owned my salon almost 8 years now and many businesses I hear say that the recession is the worst thing to hit their business, not me, 8 years ago a client (Amanda Clarke) quickly became somebody that myself and other colleagues would turn to for advice and she never failed to deliver the information sought.
Then 3.5 years ago disaster struck, my then accountant (name withheld) vanished, and my salon was destroyed overnight by flood from the above property, I had nobody and nowhere to turn, or so i thought...........
As always within a phone call asking how I was there was Amanda Clarke with the advice and help I needed and I realised very quickly that this was the person who could help me salvage my business.
I quickly appointed AJC Accounting as my accountant and things started to move forward, the advice as always was second to none and none of the rigid advice either if my business was not going to survive I trusted her opinion enough to know that she would be the one (NOT THE BANKS) that would truthfully advise me.
Approx 12 months ago we met for coffee and catch up on progression and the long haul it had been to get to that day and towel in hand, I had had enough and was waiting from the nod from Amanda as I felt sure she too would be giving me the nod that I had dreaded, but no at this point she advised that whilst things were still hard (but not dire) there now is a recession and the salon is going from strength to strength a sign that things have not only picked up and got back to normal (ie prior flood) but that things were in fact bigger and better than before.
Today August 2011 my business is amazing, all the advice was clear and precise, honest and spoken in a way I understood to pass to others that I too needed to communicate with, the best thing is I gained a life long friend someone I can trust with anything afterall if I trust AJC Accounting with my business and my livelihood I would trust Amanda Clarke with any aspect of my life.
If you want a suit and a table, a strict 1 hour fee appointment slot your looking in the wrong place, if you want to feel comfortable and trust what you hear and understand where you are heading then AJC Accounting is definitely the warm and friendly business that will help your business.
Thanks Amanda i know without you TONIC would no longer be here.
