“I’m running a fast moving business so appreciate accountants that respond quickly as well as giving me proactive advice to reduce my tax bill”
Rachel, Fruitful Jobs
“Thorne Widgery has given exceptional support to St. Michaels’s Hospice Finance Department. The team not only developed and manage internal processes to ensure continuity and high standards within the department, but has contributed greatly to further developing controls, reports and the chart of accounts. TW are actively involved in our audit process, the day to day management of accounts and are running the payroll.”
TW are a diligent, helpful and professional team and have supported the Board of Trustees and Senior Management in addition to encouraging junior members of staff during a difficult period. The team have also engaged hugely with other departments, participating actively in wider elements of hospice life. It’s a pleasure to work with such professionals.”
Chairman of the Board of Trustees
“We appointed Thorne Widgery as our auditors in 2013 and they have delivered everything they promised and more. They are always on the end of the telephone should quick advice be needed and the regular meetings throughout the year ensure we are on the right track enabling a smoother year end process.”
As a rather unique ‘charity’ this can pose some challenges but Thorne Widgery have been a great asset in helping to provide advice which is enabling us to produce stronger financial reports with the limited resources we have available. We would have no hesitation in recommending Thorne Widgery to others.”
Finance Director, Hereford Cathedral
“We would like to thank all at Thorne Widgery for the advice and support given as we have progressed through conversion to academy status. It has been invaluable. The people at Thorne Widgery have done everything they said they would and more.”
TW are a friendly, approachable, knowledgeable bunch who speak to us in a language we understand without being patronising or condescending. They have been particularly helpful in helping us to understand the intricacies of VAT, in producing our first VAT return and visiting us on numerous occasions to ensure we get the systems right from the start. The “phone a friend” approach, together with your company being on our doorstep has certainly proved to be a real bonus.
In Thorne Widgery we feel as though we have a partner that is keen to help us get it right rather than simply perform an audit function. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Mary Keene Academy Business Manager, Queen Elizabeth Humanities College
“We moved to Thorne Widgery at the end of 2010. They’re the third firm of accountants we’ve tried in 15 years. Our previous accountants were pleasant enough but they simply weren’t proactive. I didn’t feel as if I was getting any support and they didn’t seem to be taking an interest in my business; I didn’t want an expensive book keeping service and I was paying more tax than I needed to!”
Thorne Widgery got to know the business quickly, helped in the production of cash flow and profit forecasts and recognise the importance of using high quality forecasts as a valuable business tool. As a consequence, not only do I have an accountant that understands my business, I’m more in control which helps me to sleep at night!
The knock on effect is that I have more confidence in my forecasts which comes across when speaking to the bank manager. Thorne Widgery are already talking to me about succession planning, which as a family owned business is really important to me.
Finally, I must say they’re a friendly bunch that make you feel at ease, speaking in a language I understand. I would be very happy to recommend Thorne Widgery.”
Giles Rivers, Director
Votex Hereford Limited
“I testify that Thorne Widgery are experienced, efficient, courteous and extremely capable with all aspects of dealing with our payroll service. We have dealt with them on a monthly basis for many years relating to all aspects of payroll, pensions and HMRC with queries being resolved with a very professional service.”
I am happy and confident with the level of support received from Thorne Widgery, which contributes to the smooth running of a busy school finance department.”
Lian Hind Finance Manager, Lucton School
“We have worked with TW for 40 years now and I have to say that we are delighted with the service that we have received, and continue to receive, during this time. They do all of the things that you would expect a good accountancy practice to do and they do it well.”
Deadlines are always adhered to and they exhibit a great depth of technical knowledge in dealing with our affairs, which is particularly important to us; we are not a “bog standard” business and we rely on their support.
We value the relationship that has developed between us over time and we consider them to be an integral part of our team.
The thing that sets them apart for us is that it not only do they the things that you would expect them to do but they are also proactive – suggesting ways on how we might improve our business – an approach that we particularly appreciate.
They frequently listen to our challenges and assist us in arriving at solutions that help us with the continued development of our business.
Their depth in IT (information technology) knowledge and systems through their “Bridge” division has also proved to be extremely beneficial.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Thorne Widgery as a provider of accountancy services and much more.”
“It’s great to be with an accounting company who take their role in the community with such seriousness and commitment and work to improve not just the financial bottom line of this area and clients but also the social and environmental return.”
Gareth Williams – Managing Director
“TW are really adding strength to our team. I can highly recommend them as not only being highly professional but also fun to work with!”
Hugh Pattison-Appleton – Director
“Thank you again for your excellent service to our charity and your recommendations as made in the Management Letter. We truly appreciate your hard work to ensure our accounting systems, reports and procedures are meeting the requirements of the Charity Commission and Companies House.”
Besides the excellent service you provide, we also wanted to say a big Thank You for all your care for us as a charity, your hospitality during our meetings and the friendliness of all your staff. It is a true pleasure to work with you all.”
“I have worked with TW for many years and have always found them easy to talk to at all levels. They understand the businesses and care about them, and are available to talk about things on a phone-a-friend basis without one feeling that one is on the clock. Whilst always being professional it has been easy to have good and friendly relationships with all their team.”
