Accountants Changing the World believe that the accounting profession has a responsibility to help you develop a sustainable competitive advantage so that you can enjoy more income and wealth, have a better work-life balance and generate more prosperity and jobs.
So they will give any business in their area a free profit improvement review. And, subject to the information being available, this will often also include:
Researching how your business compares to others in your industry
Identifying where the evidence suggests you are strong or weak compared to your competitors
Calculating how much the evidence suggests your sales, profits and cashflow could be improved
Presenting their findings in a Plain English report
Helping you to use those findings to draw up an improvement action plan
Helping you and the environment… for free
Accountants Changing the World believe that the current generation has a responsibility to future generations to ensure that the environment is not ruined.
So they will give any business in their area a free sustainability audit designed to both identify what they can do to reduce their carbon footprint and create an action plan to actually make it happen.
Helping you and the less fortunate… for free
Accountants Changing the World believe that as human beings we all have a responsibility to give back to help and empower those less fortunate than ourselves.
So they will help any business in their area, for free, to create a direct link between what they do and their giving, so that the process of giving to their chosen good causes becomes embedded in what they do as an integral part of who they are and what they stand for. And, of course, they have committed to doing the same with their own businesses.
If you own or run a business in the UK then you are eligible. It is as simple as that. Currently businesses outside the UK are not eligible, however we hope to be able to extend eligibility to them in the future.
There is no catch. The firms that have signed the Accountants Changing the World commitment will do at least the things described on these pages as being free without charging you a penny. There will also be no requirement or expectation that you go on to buy anything else from them.
For two reasons. Firstly, because they believe that accountants have a duty to help in these ways. And secondly because they hope that, by proving their value through doing things for free, you may decide to ask them for more help on a commercial basis. However, it is important to stress that there is categorically no requirement or expectation that you go on to buy anything from them.
Accountants Changing the World is the brainchild of Chartered Accountant Steve Pipe – www.stevepipe.com. But the real heroes are the firms of professional accountants who have publicly committed themselves to the aims of Accountants Changing the World. They are the people who want to make things better for you and everyone else. They are the ones who are prepared to stand up and be counted. And it is to them that our heartfelt thanks are given.
