As the financial year draws to a close, we have been asking ourselves “what has Jude Rose Accountancy accomplished this year?”
2015/16 was our first full year of trading; we set up the business at the tail end of 14/15 and sat back, patted ourselves on the back after wiping our brow thinking we had done the hard work! WRONG! Setting up was the easy bit.
2015/16 has seen excitement, compliance, stress, compliance, anticipation and more compliance but above all – satisfaction! Satisfaction in having set up the business, satisfaction in designing the website, business cards and sourcing advertising space and satisfaction in seeing our Twitter followers increasing beyond our expectations. And, if that wasn’t enough, we have clients! Our clients have provided us with experience of business areas in which we had no previous experience but now, we feel quite knowledgeable; we have even remembered skills and areas of expertise that we had forgotten all about – not just within Finance but within Procurement too. We have continued to achieve our goal of providing a professional service with top-notch customer service too, so that can’t be bad.
As this financial year draws to a close, we urge you to look back over the year and reflect on the positives within your business – what aims did you have a year ago? Have you achieved them? If not, what can you do to ensure 2016/17 is THE year for you? Why don’t you write down your aims for 2016/17, put them in a sealed envelope and open it in a year from now – will you have achieved what you set out to achieve? This is what we’ll be doing because it’ll show us how we have grown and what we have learnt for the following year.
We are constantly looking forwards as well as remembering what we’ve learnt to ensure we provide the very best for our clients and thereby secure the future of our business.
Anyone for a New (tax) Year’s Eve party?! Now that has to be a new annual celebration!!
We wish you and your business every success in 2016/17.
