A start-up online accountancy business is celebrating its first anniversary and a year of rapid growth by announcing the signing of its 400th client.
Sidekick, based in Aston, Birmingham, provides a range of accountancy services for small businesses, tradesmen and contractors and delivers pro-active advice without the jargon for a fixed monthly fee.
In just a year Sidekick has grown from humble beginnings to a team of 10 experienced accountancy staff working on behalf of hundreds of clients across the country working in a wide variety of sectors.
Managing director Alex Sutherland, who is also director of investment and development firm Key Land Capital PLC, said: “It has been an amazing first year for Sidekick. We launched the service because we knew there were tens of thousands of self-employed people and small businesses that were tired of doing their accounts the old way, with an envelope full of receipts.
“Sidekick has filled a void in the market. We provide our clients with cloud account software so that they can deal with their accounts at any time and keep up to date, so they don’t face a worrying time at the end of the tax year.”
He added: “The year ahead looks equally as exciting as our first year. We’re determined to grow the business with further investment in our people and technology so that we can reduce the stress associated with tax and accounts for thousands more business people, tradesmen and contractors.”
Sidekick aims to:
• To revolutionise outdated accountancy services (no more year end stress or receipts in an envelope).
• Make running a business simple and efficient.
• Provide 24/7 access to your business through intuitive technology.
• Add genuine value in partnership with your business.
• Educate and empower business owners.
