“Russell Smith are very straightforward to deal with and more significantly have taken the stress factor out of my accounting needs for the past two tax years. I am therefore happy to recommend them to others”
“We are new clients with Russell Smith since starting our business in June 2009. Their advice in all realms of accounting, in terms of both tax and setting up our systems, has been extremely valuable. Whether you are an established artist looking for an accountant to help get your affairs in order, or newly starting out in the world of making a living from your art, Russell Smith will be a great help to you”
“I have been very happy with the service I have received from RS Accountancy over the past 5 (?) years. I am confident that when I have any questions, there is always someone there at the end of the phone or e-mail who will respond quickly and assist me with my tax concerns”
"Russell and his team have always been easy to get hold of and happy to help with any queries I have had regarding my tax returns. It was quite scary having to deal with my own tax, being self-employed; but I feel confident knowing they are always looking out for new ways to save me money and I am in good hands!"
“What I have found most pleasing in our relationship, is your constant effort of offering me the opportunity to save time and money, plus your awareness in the changes that constantly take place where tax and revenue are concerned. Also you are always happy to assist when I have a problem or need assistance.
I feel very comfortable when dealing with you and see our relationship widening as my business grows”
“I came to Russell last year looking for an accountant who could not only tell me what to pay HMRC but also aid me in making more money. The transition was painless and so far I've been impressed with the entrepreneurial approach to often dull realms of accounting.
“Russell Smith and his staff provided me with a user friendly, efficient but cost effective service while successfully resolving issues arising from my tax returns. He also kept me up to date with progress on a regular basis. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone”
“We took the difficult decision to move away from our Accountants of 3 years to work with Russell Smith. Whilst we weren’t at all happy with our previous Accountant there’s always the element of ‘better the Devil you know’. I have to say though that the transition was a great success and the difference in service we now get from Russell Smith compared to what we had previously is almost immeasurable. We get great, responsive service. I now consider the team at Russell Smith to be trusted advisors to our business and not just our Accountant”
"Russell has helped and supported our organisation to develop through his accountancy service in a way that enables us to get on with what we do best! What we really like about Russell is that he is always on the end of the phone, friendly and supportive. We can discuss ideas and he bridges the gap between business, accountancy and the arts in an intelligent and informative way."
“"Russell and his team look after a couple of my businesses as well as my personal finances. They take care of the day to day statutory requirements with the minimum of fuss, but what I really appreciate about their service is that they proactively seek out opportunities to minimise my tax liabilities in a way that other small business accountants do not do."
“Russell Smith Accountants make my business life so much easier. Russell has created all sorts of information for me so that my numbers are available at the touch of a button and this saves me huge amounts of time. Our quarterly meetings keep me on track and Russell will always do what needs to be done to help me – speedily. I would have no hesitation in recommending Russell and his team and would be happy to have a conversation with anybody who would like to know more”
"I was recommended to try Russell Smith Accountants by another artist a few years ago - I've never looked back, it's great to be with an accountant who understands my practice and offers me valuable accountancy support throughout the year."
“I had personal attention and advice from the approachable staff, who have helped me not only submit returns, but also to understand my position better. I would recommend Russell Smith Chartered Accountants”.
“After meeting with Russell Smith Accountants I really did think what all the fuss was about?
They are a genuine, friendly and a very helpful company. Above all they kept their word, kept my accounts simple for me and on time. That is honestly why I continue to use them year on year. Recommended to me by a close friend, and my friends now use them on my recommendation.
P.S. Between you and me, they sometimes bend over backwards for me!”
“I find you and your colleagues friendly and approachable so I can ring/email if I have any queries at all. This is so important because with some firms you never get past the secretary and are made to feel a nuisance. Your response is quick and always helpful and efficient”
Russell Smith Chartered Accountants have been a brilliant choice for us. Unlike many other practices we have used, everyone at RSCA manages to listen properly and ask lots of questions until they get a clear understanding of our business, or in my case businesses; only then do they offer advice. Language used is precise yet easy to follow for non accountants so blending professionalism, clarity and common sense.
Russell's firm keeps in touch throughout the financial year by providing useful money-managing tips. I feel this approach is helpful, imaginative and very encouraging.
“Russell has facilitated sessions on “Setting Up as a Freelancer” over the last couple of years for members of Fabric, the arts development organisation for Bradford. As he works with many artists or small businesses, he understands the particular needs and challenges of those working in the arts, and that is essential when running sessions geared towards artists, which is one of the reasons we keep asking him back! Russell is extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and breaks information down clearly for the non-financially minded to understand. He makes what could be a dull topic interesting and injects humour and enthusiasm for the subject into his sessions.”
“With tax increases and further fiscal complexity on the horizon it's even more important to get the right taxation advice at the right time for future planning.
With Russell Smith Chartered Accountants’ very personal and individual focus it is well positioned to provide the most relevant and viable up to date information and guidance”
“What makes Russell Smith shine above other accountants, is the genuine support in keeping my finances straight – whether this is prompt replies, answers to questions or advice and tips, I know they are working with me
