Kirklees Cycling Academy

On the fourth anniversary of the KCA opening its doors with the goal of becoming the number one competitive cycling club supporting the development of Regional and National cycling champions aged 6-18 we are delighted to secure the support of Revell Ward for the fourth consecutive year.

Your financial contribution, your purchasing of our annual club presentation trophies and your continued moral support make a real difference in the way we can support riders, motivate riders and reward riders for their achievements.

In tough economic times your contribution to the KCA is to be applauded.

May I take the opportunity to wish Revell Ward every success in the future and as I know that all three senior partners in the business are now involved in cycling including incredible fund raising for other deserving causes may I say, hats off to you for taking on some personal challenges and coming through them with some great stories and a smile on your faces.

Karen & her team have done a consistently excellent job. They are always flexible and provide great advice, particularly when deadlines are looming. I have no hesitation in recommending Revell Ward as an outstanding accountancy practice.

Diversity Products Limited

For Diversity Products, the Revell Ward Strategy Session was a thought provoking experience. It demonstrated to us as company directors, that as always, Revell Ward is highly focussed on helping its clients develop, not just by providing sound financial guidance but using its partners’ experience to help businesses plan for their future. The open and informal communication style of Revell Ward’s partners always creates an environment in which it is easier to discuss the complexities of business finance, and the Strategy Session was no exception.

We decided to tender for new auditors after being with another provider for a number of years. Due to the reduction in government funding our business was in the midst of change and we felt that we needed a fresh pair of eyes to look over our business and provide both support and challenge. Although we interviewed the top audit firms, the interview process, combined with previous experience, went to prove that we would be a small fish in a very big pond. We didn’t believe that we would receive the personal attention we required at this crucial stage of development in our business. We also need an auditor who really understood both the nuances and intricacies of our sector as well as an understanding of current position and where we needed to take the business to.

When we had an issue in our organisation which meant that we were unable to complete the fieldwork on the dates agreed Revell Ward were sympathetic to the issue and were quick to offer a solution.

The audit team were professional and efficient, finding just the right balance of support and challenge. Revell Ward recommended a shift in the way our accounts were presented and following rigorous discussion a set of financial statements were produced that more clearly and concisely communicated our position to the outside world. We believe that this approach will help us move from a grant based organisation to one that also has a stronger commercial element.

Perhaps, more importantly, the team at Revell Ward are easy to work with and thorough. I have would have no hesitation in recommending them. Should more information be required please do not hesitate to contact me,

I was introduced to Lesley Sutton of Revell Ward by my legal advisors on a share transaction. The business had previously implemented a share structure which inadvertently diluted key shareholdings to below the magic 5% needed for use of entrepreneurs relief. Lesley quickly identified the issue and put a revised structure in place to protect our position going forward and then set about tackling HMRC to backdate the relief. The successful outcome meant a saving of some £120,000 in tax.

Lesley and Revell Ward were professional, timely and technically excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Ready Steady Veg Ltd

I was introduced to Lesley Sutton of Revell Ward by my accountant. We had previously invested cash in a business which had unfortunately ceased to trade before we were able to recover our investment. Lesley advised us to make a claim to crystallise a capital loss on the shares we had acquired, followed by a separate claim to offset this loss against our other income. The successful outcome resulted in a tax repayment of £16,000 for me and my wife

Lesley and Revell Ward offered a professional and timely service and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Kirklees Stadium Development Ltd

Revell Ward have been Auditors to Kirklees Stadium Development Ltd, (KSDL), for a number of years and were reappointed unanimously by the Board in the Spring. Their efficiency, attention to detail and communication are all of the highest order.

Over the last year since my arrival in the business, I have used them increasingly to provide general management consultancy on key strategic initiatives. Here again, their ability to think outside of the box and to offer clear and beneficial advice has impressed.

I am therefore very happy to recommend the services of Revell Ward.

Nicki Smith, Director

Brighter Connections Limited

Having worked with the team at Revell Ward for 5 years as our retained accountants we recently had a need for a temporary bookkeeper. This requirement came about due to our own bookkeeper becoming ill and needing to take an extended break from work. We were introduced to Lynn who is now a valued member of our team and as a sign of our growing relationship we invited Lynn to join us at our annual Christmas dinner! Whilst we miss our own bookkeeper, Lynn gets through a lot of work when she is here and we are very impressed with her efforts. Having looked at alternative options to cover our medium terms needs, the outsource service from Revell Ward came out on top for value and addressing our business needs.

Margaret Dale

Calderdale & Kirklees Careers Ltd

Revell Ward talk our language, they offer expert help in a down-to-earth, straight-talking kind of way. We can ask quick questions without racking up costs and they have helped us to become more self-sufficient in our approach to accountancy and taxation work; safe in the knowledge that they are there for us when we have reached the limit of our capabilities. Accordingly, the relationship is a good one that is mutually beneficial, and its cost-effective for us – we wouldn’t have stuck with them for 15 years otherwise, (give or take the odd takeover and amalgamation in between). Access to our support team at Revell Ward is generally very good. Revell Ward look to solve our problems rather than just give us the strict accounting perspective and they have taken the time to get to know our business well. We would recommend Revell Ward to others looking for a similar relationship.
