Business Cornwall: How is the business best described?
Walker Moyle are more than just accountants. Yes, they can give business owners throughout West Cornwall peace of mind that their routine tax, accounting and payroll tasks are being done correctly and on time.
But that is only a small part of how they help local businesses.
Where they really make a difference is by getting to know the individual, their business and what they want to achieve. In doing so they can provide strategic and practical solutions that are tailored to their circumstances and that will help them to achieve their goals. These solutions include:
- Improving a business’s efficiency and profitability.
- Giving business owners more time to focus on running the business or spending more time with family and friends.
- Making sure the right amount of tax is being paid by identifying ways to reduce personal and corporate tax liabilities or reclaiming overpaid tax.
- Helping business owners, including self-employed people and property landlords, to transition to cloud accounting software in order to comply with HMRC’s Making Tax Digital plan.
Operating from three offices across West Cornwall, the professional, friendly and proactive team do all they can to make sure the service business owners receive is reliable and affordable.
Why was the business founded?
Sadly, none of the current team were around when the original accountancy practice was founded nearly a 100 years ago! However, the practice’s ethos of providing a quality, professional and ethical service which helps local people and businesses has been a constant part of its success.
Managing Director, Paula Thomas, who has been with the practice for nearly 30 years, has worked hard to ensure the practice’s values filter through into every day activities. These traditional values are now entwined with using the latest digital technology. This ensures today’s clients experience the best of both worlds, where professionalism and personal relationships meet accuracy and efficiency.
How does the business compare to competitors in the industry?
Walker Moyle put their clients and their team at the heart of their practice. The tax and accounts team are given the opportunity to train to become qualified accountants or accounting technicians, which in turn helps clients to benefit from their growing skills and experience. The practice is also dedicated to providing sound, practical, ethical advice which enables their clients to make decisions which they know are right for their businesses, but they are also comfortable with taking.
