“If you’ve got a happy employee, a happy team member,they’ll go that extra mile, they’ll prevent problems before they actually happen.” Miguel Calabrese, Blue Rocket Accounting
2020 has brought challenges for everyone, on a business or personal level, or both. At work, teams have had to adapt to new ways of working and communicating, with clients and with each other.
But our team at Blue Rocket Accounting has risen to the challenge, and we’re delighted to have welcomed new members of staff this year. Romano joined us as Client Advisor for TeamMars, Dan in Business Development, and Lucy and Alex joined our office management team.
We’re proud of how well everyone at Blue Rocket pulled together to ensure our clients continued to receive the support they needed - and more - when lockdown was announced in March, and how they have supported each other as colleagues throughout the following months.
It’s almost time to give our calculators a few days rest over Christmas, so what better time to celebrate the team at Blue Rocket Accounting and some of the things that make us truly great? (We’ve only listed 5, we could go on…)
1. We’re different, in a good way
Of course, we prepare your VAT returns and manage your payroll. In fact, our approach to delivering the usual accountancy services has been described as “nothing short of exceptional”. (Enrico Rausa, Google review)
But we also want to change the perception you might have of accountants, perhaps of someone in a suit behind a desk, that you only speak to once a year.
Getting to know your accountant and developing a two-way relationship, can lead to a clearer understanding of your financial position,and ultimately help you achieve your business goals.
2. We’re more than just bean counters
We love numbers, but we also love to think creatively, and our team will take an active interest in your business and the industry you operate in, to identify ways to help and to support growth.
We can offer you financial as well as strategic business advice at keys times of your business growth and provide you with information that will enable you to make important decisions about the future direction of your company.
“They have really taken the time to understand our business, providing strategic advice as wellas keeping on top of the numbers. It is fair to say they always go above and beyond.” Inspired loveoutdoors.co.uk (Google review)
3. We’re proactive
If we think you could be saving money or benefiting from organising your business’s finances in a different way, we’ll tell you.
Whether you’re a start-up or a well-established organisation, our team is structured so that we can provide you with the best support for your business, whatever stage you’re at.
“As a growing small business, working with Miguel and his team at Blue Rocket Accounting has been an absolute no brainer…professional,patient, positive, contactable and willing to support us as best they can when we require it. They have demonstrated to us the most cost-effective way to manage multiple elements of our accounts, advised on business strategy and generally been a fantastic asset to have on board. I have recommended them to friends, family & business associates and will continue to do so. Thank you.”Aidan Thompson , Sustainable Garden Solutions (Facebook review)
4. We want to hear from you
We strongly believe there’s no such thing as a silly question! All of our clients have unlimited support, so you can contact us as many times as you need to, whether that’s by phone, text, email or WhatsApp,without the worry of additional costs. Clients often use us as a sounding board for new business ideas, which we love!
“A great accountant, that has helped us improve not just through good numbers but also solid business advice. During the Covid pandemic they have stood by their clients 100%.” Jon Pankhurst, Racer Marketing (Google review)
5. We don’t take ourselves too seriously
As our Managing Director Miguel said, it’s important to have a happy team. Without a doubt, 2020 has been tough, and some of the traditions and festivities we would usually be enjoying at this time of year might not have been able to take place.
So, at Blue Rocket Accounting, we’ve been playing a few ‘Advent games’, having fun and keeping our spirits high with virtual ‘Kazoo that tune’,our annual Christmas quiz, and some displays of creative genius with Pictionary and card-making.
This Christmas is bound to look a little different, but it’s important to take some time to celebrate your hard-working team, have some restand be ready to spring into 2021.
Wishing all our clients and contacts a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
