“A reliable, smart, accurate and efficient service. We have been using the Alexander & Co payroll bureau for almost 15 years and can highly recommend them.
Always on hand to assist no matter how small the query. As a large employer with 250+ employees the speedy, accurate turnaround ensures our weekly and monthly employees are paid on time, keeping our workforce happy and productive. Their “no fuss” approach to changes such as RTI and Auto Enrolment was second to none, guiding us through with minimum changes to payroll procedures.
Friendly and in touch with the needs of our employees & our accounts department, who receive support and detailed information regularly.”
We decided to transfer our Audit this year to Gary Kramrisch and his team at Alexanders and having just completed our first audit with them, I have nothing but praise for the quality, professionalism and efficiency of the audit team. The process was well organised from the beginning resulting in minimum disruption during the on-site phase. The follow up meetings were well prepared and informative and the whole process was completed on schedule and to cost. As our business expands, we expect Alexanders to be an integral partner to our operations.
We were introduced to and appointed Alexander & Co as our auditors during the past year, their audit team were very professional and extremely thorough throughout the audit, as well as giving advice and information and asking challenging questions when required.
An excellent team, I would not hesitate to recommend the firm Alexander & Co to anyone.
Our experience of Stephen Verber and his team at Alexander has been that they are always so supportive. From introducing us to potential sources of funding, to a helpful bank through to building a sensible and realistic business plan, they were there throughout and in person. They are neither faceless nor distant. You can rely on them to be there and to ensure that you have their assistance. This goes deep into the team so even our smaller but important worries, about payroll, tax, how to handle a VAT inspection, what to do about the endless forms, just seemed to be handled and managed by them with a friendly and swift attention to the detail.
Fair enough, but they went beyond being supportive which is why we continue to retain them and ask them to attend our Board Meetings, to review our Budgets, and to check our Monthly Accounts. Support was welcome but the step they took beyond that was to be “helpfully challenging”. They have personality and are prepared to speak their mind rather than hide behind blind platitudes. Early on in our relationship they challenged us to look again at our Business Plan, they tackled us head-on about problems turning healthy revenue into solid profit, and they worked with us to build a reporting system which not only told the Bank what they needed to know but also informed us as well. It has led to us managing our business more effectively and their presence in our ongoing development has been most welcome. It’s a pleasure to work with such a friendly and helpful firm who are also prepared to offer good advice and to challenge when necessary.”
Always supportive; helpfully challenging.
Alexander & Co have been my trusted advisors for over 15 years. They were an integral part of guiding MKM to a successful management buy-out from the British Airways Group and its subsequent flotation on the AIM Stock Market.
More recently they played a key part in negotiating the successful buy-out of I-Deal Promotions from the publicly listed CPP Group
Alexander & Co are insightful, dedicated, experienced and trustworthy. Having experienced and worked with the big four accountants I will continue to put my trust and faith in Alexander & Co.
