Since Kingscott Dix opened its doors in 1921, the firm has provided a first-class range of quality services to its many and varied clients.
With offices in Gloucester and Cheltenham, our size and independence makes us ideally suited to small to medium sized (SME) businesses. Specialising in family-owned enterprises, professional partnerships and owner-managed businesses, we support clients overseas and throughout the United Kingdom, particularly in the Midlands and South West.
Our reputation as one of the leading firms of accountants in the area is something that we jealously guard.
Here are just some of the ways that we go further than other accountants when it comes to taking care of our clients.
Entrepreneurs have a unique way of looking at the world when it comes to spotting opportunities.
At KD, we recognise that entrepreneurs need accountants who understand their specific demands and can add value to their plans. The key to this comes from our commitment to working alongside entrepreneurs and becoming as passionate about their businesses as they are.
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach when it comes to dealing with entrepreneurs. Flexibility and imagination are the essential qualities needed, and we work hard to make sure that we deliver them constantly and consistently.
OMBs are the lifeblood of the country’s economy and yet they often find it difficult to get the first-class advice they need to prosper and grow.
At KD, we treat our relationship with our OMB clients as a partnership, especially for those who are unable to provide their own in-house financial expertise. Working alongside our clients this way means that we are best-placed to understand their businesses and help them face up to today’s challenges.
Our proactive approach means that we have regular contact with our OMB clients helping them to take advantage of available opportunities and avoid potential pitfalls. In this way we aim to add maximum value to their businesses.
Professional practices make up a large proportion of the growing service economy and cover a wide variety of disciplines, each with their own challenges. From solicitors through to architects, veterinary surgeons, dentists and doctors we have wide-ranging experience and expertise in this area.
A key aspect of dealing with professional practices is balancing the commercial demands of the business with the taxation implications. This means getting the right structure in place so that the proprietors protect their assets whilst taking full advantage of any tax breaks available. We specialise in making sure that our professional practice clients are able to optimise the competing demands that they often face.
It goes without saying that, as accountants, we understand the importance of financial planning. At KD, however, we don’t just stop with the numbers. Bringing together the different pieces of the jigsaw is crucial to achieving success in any business, and our exclusive range of Strategic Planning and Business Consultancy services is designed to do just that.
Whatever stage a business has reached, the benefits of having a clear strategy for moving to the next level are overwhelming. Our role in facilitating this process is to bring clarity, coherence and direction in helping our clients define their future strategic goals - both from a business and personal perspective.
Implementation is the key, though, and our range of consultancy services is designed to help business owners put their plans into action and gain a competitive edge in their chosen market place.
