“Financial information is the bedrock of sound business planning, without it you are making uninformed decisions. Understanding your finances means greater business profit; we would like Anlo to be an integral part of that success.”
Annja Louca – Anlo founder.
Since Anlo was born, seven years ago, we have had our hands full raising our baby. Like any child, Anlo has taught us much in the intervening years, and we haven’t stopped learning.
We know exactly what is involved in starting, growing and running a business. We also understand that you cannot always do everything on your own - that was true of Anlo; Annja brought her own strengths to the business but realised that no matter how enthusiastic, one person cannot do everything.
When recruiting she met Esmerelda and realised that she was the missing piece Anlo needed, her skills complimented Annja’s and her approach to accountancy and her work ethic were what the business needed. She was pregnant when interviewed, but Annja was so certain that she was the right person for the role that she was willing to wait until Esi could join her.
The passing years haven’t changed that conviction and Anlo’s success is still rooted in partnership. Esi brings an attention to detail and feel for auditing that perfectly complements Annja’s business acumen and customer facing skills.
In this respect Anlo is like our clients, a combination of skills all working towards a common goal. As Anlo has expanded, at first within South Africa and then in 2016, into the UK, we have worked hand in hand, supporting each other through each challenge and set back but always with our attention fixed firmly on our goals.
We bring this experience to each and every one of our clients, from the most straightforward tax return to the most mind-bending book keeping exercise. We have faced these problems ourselves, we understand the pressure that they can place on a business and we also know that we can help to relieve those pressures, to clarify what is obscure, to find the truth hidden in the numbers and to help you see the wood from the trees. Understanding our business helps us understand yours.
Our clients are our partners, if you need an accountant you can lean on, contact us.
