Our Objectives:

We aim to provide tailored solutions for small and medium sized enterprises depending on the individual needs of each business we represent.

As business proprietors in uncertain economic times we appreciate that you will need easily accessible, up to date information.

Many businesses only meet their accountants at financial year end. As a result, information tends to be provided on a reactive, historical basis. This allows insufficient time for planning and problems often cannot be identified and resolved on a timely basis.

We communicate with our clients on a regular basis - for example, we can provide accounts and reports on a monthly basis if required. Instead of preparing accounts with reporting deadlines in mind, we provide regular reports and analysis with the objective of saving money for our clients. Savings can occur through basic tax planning, identification of potential cost reductions and resolving potential problems before they become major issues for your business.

When our clients compare our fees to the money they've saved throughout the year they often find that the savings exceed the costs.

We firmly believe that accounting fees should be viewed as an investment not an expense - at Lynwood Resources we aim to give our clients a return on that investment.
