What our clients say
The Alchemy team has never known anything but online accounting – we’re what the experts call ‘digital natives’, just like most of the switched-on business people we work with. We specialise in working with FreeAgent and Xero.
Based in Preston, Lancashire, in the North West of England, Alchemy specialises in working with creatives, technology businesses, professional service firms and contractors. Find out more, and learn how Alchemy got its name, in this video featuring our founder, Craig McCall.
We’re committed to giving crystal clear advice on tax and finance. We put that promise into practice on our blog where you’ll find bite-sized explainers and to-the-point opinion pieces, along with in-depth, plain English guides.
Are your colleagues in the habit of bidding for budget they don’t need ‘to be on the safe side’? And do you hear people grumbling that they’ve been held back by the lack of available budget? As 2021 budgets firm up in many creative businesses, here’s advice on how to make the process work.
One of the biggest challenges of growth is that the bigger your creative business gets, the more people you need to keep happy. Stakeholders need to feel you’re on top of things and reassured that the numbers stack up. Good leaders don’t react to queries – they present reports that answer questions before they’re asked.
