We are a family run wholesaler and back in late 2011, we moved to Sibbalds Chartered Accountants in Derby after a recommendation and we have not looked back.
Hari and the team at Sibbalds provide our accountancy, tax and management accounts affairs and are always available to answer any of our queries.
Each month we sit down with Hari to go through the management accounts that have been prepared by Sibbalds. This service has been important to us as we are able to make strategic decisions on the company and the board are able to make informed executive decisions based on reliable management accounts. The discussions help us to explore where we can be more efficient as a business and consequently, we have seen our profits increase since using Sibbalds.
We value the prompt and helpful advice that Hari and his team provide and we feel Sibbalds is a modern yet friendly and approachable firm of Chartered Accountants. We would not hesitate in recommending Sibbalds to other businesses.

Sibbalds were appointed our Auditors when we became and Academy in April 2011. As well as carrying out our audit and preparation of accounts they support our Audit Committee and Responsible Officer and have provided support and advice in meeting our EFA reporting obligations. We find Sibbalds very responsive and easy to work with. Their work has been to a high standard while meeting very tight deadlines for the Annual Report and EFA returns. I would be happy to recommend them.

We moved to Sibbalds 18 months ago, after we had previously spent the last 7 years working with large regional firms. We didn't feel like we got the service we deserved, or the support we needed to grow the business and minimise our tax liabilities.
David Bowler and his team have helped us in so many ways, from producing quarterly management accounts and pro-active tax planning, through to completion of our P11D forms and annual returns. They are always available at the end of the phone to answer our queries, and best of all they actively look for ways to help us and recommend ideas that can help us improve our profits.They are professional and reliable, and we think of them as part of our team and would highly recommend them to other business owners who want to improve their business performance - in fact we have done so on a number of occasions!

We operate a mailing company in Ilkeston, and moved to Sibbalds at the beginning of 2009. David immediately met with us to undertake some pre-year end tax planning, which was something we had never received before and resulted in a corporation tax saving of £15,000.
David and his team really are pro-active – they are always offering ideas on how we can grow the business and pay less tax. Earlier this year, thanks to some remuneration planning we did with David, we were able to apply for Tax Credits which we had previously not qualified for.I would be delighted to recommend Sibbalds to any business owner who wants the support of an accountant who will actively look for ways to help them increase their wealth.

You have been our accountant since we started in business 6 years ago. Over these years you have arranged my personal accounts, the company accounts, my partner's accounts, my employees accounts, the employers payroll & even my family tax credits.
As your card says you are not just numbers, you have helped and advised me in numerous ways. When ever we have needed some support, we have found you always available ready to help.
This help has enabled our business to grow into the position we are at today. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the wonderful things you have done for our company and my family. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone.
Shaun Charles Electrical Services Ltd - www.sc-es.co.uk
Our US parent company initially engaged Sibbalds to assist with the setting up of our UK subsidiary in 2002. Since then Sibbalds and, in particular, Terry Grant and Ian Smith have been involved with finance and taxation issues which have arisen. The period since 2002 has seen us grow from one member of staff in 2002 to over 50. Our company continues to expand and has moved into many overseas markets.
Following the setting up of the company, Sibbalds were involved in all of the accounting systems and provided monthly management figures for our US parent company. As our company grew, our involvement with Sibbalds changed as we developed our own accounting function. Sibbalds provided professional and timely advice throughout this process.
We now use an international firm to undertake our annual audit and have our own, professionally qualified Finance Director. However, we continue to involve Sibbalds with our tax affairs, our statutory accounts and ad-hoc projects.

"We are a plastic injection moulding company and have been with Sibbalds since 1990. At that time we had a small unit in Ilkeston, Derbyshire but since then our company has expanded several times to meet customer demand. It now occupies a custom built 21,000 square feet site at its state of the art head offices in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire.
Sibbalds, principally through Terry Grant and Iain Young have provided us with valuable guidance with regard to our financial plans. They have helped us monitor our progress through the preparation of management figures and forecasts. Also of course they have provided statutory accounts and taxation advice.
I value highly the advice that Terry and his team provide to both the company and to me personally and have no hesitation in recommending them to businesses like ours.

"We are a five partner practice of medical practitioners in Derby City Centre and we, together with our predecessors, have been clients of Sibbalds for over fifty years. The red tape attached to running a medical practice can be extremely daunting but, in times of need, I can always rely on Sibbalds' prompt and efficient support provided by Roger Hill and his team.
They look after the preparation of the partnership's annual accounts as well as all the Tax Returns of the practice and the individual Doctors. Roger's help in dealing with the NHS Pension Service returns is particularly invaluable.
Sibbalds always give their advice in a friendly manner and their undoubted expertise provides me with that extra bit of help that I need from time to time."
Christine Inness, Practice Manager
Wellside Medical Centre
We are a firm of solicitors practicing in Matlock, Derbyshire and have been clients of Sibbalds for over 50 years. During that time they have looked after all of our accounts needs, including the onerous requirements of the Solicitors Accounts Rules, as well as the taxation requirements of both the firm and the partners/directors.
Terry Grant is our client service partner, and he is ably supported by Iain Smith. I cannot speak highly enough of the prompt and helpful advice and assistance that they always provide and because of their undoubted expertise in this specialised area I have no hesitation in recommending them to other firms of solicitors.
