Sorry, there are no available resources that match your chosen filters.
The times they are a changin'Here @ChadSanHQ we’re excited, really excited ( an incongruous thought we know… )We’ve just rebranded and launched our new website (thank you to our friends at wearefarm.com), but more on that later. To start with here’s why we’re excited and more importantly, in our humble opinion, why you should be too.We don’t want to dwell on the past but for the sake of context;Imagine a world where some ...
Is DIY Anti-capitalist?“If you want a job done right…work hard so you can afford to pay a professional to do it” Not quite as catchy as the original but to me this variation (one of many pearls of wisdom passed on to me by my late grandfather) perfectly encapsulates the capitalist ideal and, perhaps more importantly, provides a great reason for me to avoid DIY. When I was trying to choose a subject matter for this ...
We're all "disrupters" nowReading this blog will make you rich. Er, sorry no it won't, but I could hardly start with last week we attended the UK's largest cloud accounting conference, Xerocon 2015, and expect any of you to still be reading. However, as an SME the message Xerocon sent is absolutely worth your while - get in the cloud, automation is only the beginning. Starting with some context, David Rowan of Wired magazine gave a fascinating ...
Visit the Swansea Tidal Lagoon for Less (and other budget matters)So there we have it – “comeback” George has fired his final pre-election salvo in the form of the 2015 budget.In all honesty, policy wise there was nothing particularly ground breaking in there and, as seems to be the norm these days, anything mildly interesting had been leaked or announced well in advance.Never the less his “didn’t we do well” speech, as well as Miliband’s “liar, liar” response, made for a fascinating ...
Triple venti, soy, no foam latteWe work with a number of independent cafés who often dazzle us with their innovative brand approach, unique food and drink offering and spectacular shop fit outs. They need that extra edge to compete with the monotonous and seemingly relentless march of Pret. While as accountants there’s little we bring to the creative output, we do often get asked about the optimum way to set up the infrastructure that enables a café to buy ...
Banker BashingBanker bashing appears to have become a national pastime for certain sectors of the great British electorate in recent times. Of course it’s all gone a bit quiet right now (I can only imagine recent events have given those of a certain political persuasion different priorities to focus on) but pre-election it’s been pretty much seven solid years of blaming all of the world’s ills on a small group of professionals who ...
Top 5 Bookkeeping TipsWe spend a great deal of our time working with clients to ensure they have the optimum mix of systems, processes and controls in place to get accurate financial data as near to real time as possible, in an efficient and cost effective manner. At the core of this is the approach taken to bookkeeping. These are our top 5 tips to managing your bookkeeping:Automate bill and receipt data entry - Receipt Bank limits the ...
Forget about the pennies & spend your time making sure the pounds roll in!“Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves”. Another one of my grandfather’s favourite pearls of wisdom (although I’m not sure he wins any prizes for originality on that one).If you’ve read my previous blogs (see “Is DIY Anti-Capitalist” in particular) you’ll have realised that I set a lot of store on the sage advice handed down by Gambold senior but I’m afraid on this one ...
Not Just CricketAt the beginning of the summer the prognosis was grim. The English cricket team had just been knocked out of the world cup culminating in a defeat by Bangladesh, the Kevin Pietersen debacle stubbornly dragged on and the humiliation of the previous year’s Ashes whitewash in Australia lingered. “Don’t watch, just hide behind the sofa” was the cry of an ex-England opening batsmen turned pundit. Yet here we are after a truly fantastic ...
What do cloud accounting, an expedition across Antarctica and a vodka slide have in common?On the 9th and 10th February, the Chaddesley Sanford team grabbed coffee and their smartphones and set on their way to Battersea Park for Xerocon 2016! We couldn’t wait to get to the event to experience and learn about the latest developments Xero have been working on for the past year and get inspired with new cloud based technology we could inform our clients about. There is also an element of fun to the ...

The evening started with a ...
The Pukka BudgetAlthough it came as no surprise the economic news was, well “paradoxical” – growth was cut from 2.4% to 2% for this year and from 2.5% to 2.2% for next year, borrowing forecasts were raised and there was a failure to meet the pledge to cut debt as a percentage of GDP every year. Or as Mr Osborne put it “The combination of our action to reduce borrowing this year, along with the ...
Let's Talk...Our firms’ ethos has always been to encourage a dialogue with our clients – it’s the best way to find out what they want to achieve for their business and how we can help them to achieve it.From day one our firm has championed the use of cloud technology as a means of facilitating that dialogue - as a way of providing our clients with up to date financial data that can be used to ...
Chaddesley Sanford Takes On The Crystal Maze!On May 18th the Chaddesley Sanford team headed to London for our much anticipated team day!The day started with strong coffee and introductions to our newest members of staff. A doubling in team size over the past twelve months necessitated the introduction of the dreaded icebreaker to kick proceedings off but with that done and dusted we were presented with a whistle stop review of what has been an exceptional year of growth and ...
Proud Supporters of GiveBack UKThe Chadsan team have embraced Small Charity Week (13th to 18th June) and have signed up for Big Advice Day! Many charities, particularly smaller charities, face a problem when they are in need of specific expertise advice as resources can be limited. Luckily, Big Advice Day is taking place on 14th June 2016, with events across the country including London and various regions, where small charities can access expert 1:1 advice on a variety ...
Adrenaline-fuelled Kart Racing With Damon HillOn June 22nd the @ChadsanHQ team headed to the Daytona Sandown Park to take part in the fifth annual Damon Hill Karting Challenge! The race was in aid of the Halow Project, a fantastic Guildford based charity dedicated to helping young people with learning disabilities to live independently. Halow offer various different activities around the Guildford area to help young adults become more involved in the community and also encourage individuals and businesses to volunteer ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Daniel Barnes1) What attracted you to accounting?I think its mainly because it gives me the opportunity to study towards a globally recognised qualification. There is also a satisfaction in seeing things fall into place because accounting is very logical.2) What's your favourite part of the job? Client interaction! I can really see the difference I make to a client's business which is very rewarding. I also love the trust that develops between ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Lija Rahman1) What attracted you to accounting?I studied economics which was my first business experience and from then I knew I wanted to go into finance. It was clear to me that an accountant is someone every business needs so I know there will always be a demand for one.2) What is the most frequently asked question by clients?Dividends! The most popular question I get has to be how much dividend can be ...
The Value of VolunteeringIt's a well known fact that volunteering and helping others can give you a great sense of personal satisfaction and pride, but there are other benefits intrinsically linked to that feel good factor. There are a number of personal health benefits to caring for others which can have a positive impact on your business. Allowing your staff to dedicate some of their work time to charitable activities can improve employee performance by boosting productivity ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Joel Dailey1) I’d like to start your interview a little bit differently and ask you about your lush beard. How did this all happen?I think it was due to lack of hair on my head. I try to balance it out by having a beard. Also I do it because I can, it’s a challenge to grow a good beard. 2) What attracted you to accounting?I spent 2 years not knowing what ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Paulina Green1) What attracted you to accounting?When I was working in hospitality, something that would interest me would be 'where does the money go?', 'how does the profit work?'...I've always been involved in creating budgets, stock control, payroll and day to day bookkeeping. I enjoyed doing these things so much that I decided to take a step further and study to be an accountant.2) Whats your favourite part of your job?I ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Rachel Elvin1) What got you into the tax side of accounting? Tax rules change all the time so I think it's the fact that it keeps me on my toes. 2) What's your favourite/worst part of your job? I like problem solving so my favourite part is that I can help businesses solve problems. The worst part would be that there is a certain level of bureaucracy involved in dealing with tax matters ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Sophy Ghosh1) What’s your favourite part of the job?I enjoy working with businesses and companies and helping them to grow. It’s great when my new clients become successful and turn their first quarter’s profit, and equally satisfying to see our more established clients open new branches and grow their workforce and turnover.2) What is the most frequently asked question by clients?“How do I reconcile…this?”. Clients often have odd transactions ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Suraj Sandhu1) What attracted you to accounting?I read Law at university and completed a tax module in my last year. I read around the implications tax had on businesses, which in turn sparked my interest in learning more about what makes a business successful and how to maximise efficiencies in order to sustain growth. 2) What's your favourite part of your job?Interacting with clients and problem solving. I enjoy researching whether individuals and ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Sean Hookins1) What is the most frequently asked question by a client?Should my business register for VAT and what are the pros and cons. It's crucial that all of the implications are thought through when a business makes a decision like this.2) Whats your favourite part of your job?I enjoy the flexibility that the job offers. I am lucky enough to be able to work once a week at Rocketdesk and be ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Adrian Pubrat1) What attracted you to accounting?Since I was a child I've always been good at maths and it was my favourite subject at school so I knew I wanted to work with numbers in the future. Working at the ChadSan office and managing client businesses assured me that accountancy is the right choice for me. The variety of tasks carried out on a daily basis allow me to stay sharp and focused and ...
ChadSan in the Spotlight - Matthew Gambold1) What got you into accounting? I’ve always been interested in numbers and economics. Even as I child I kept a detailed spreadsheet of the amounts everyone (my parents included) owed me. I was possibly a bit more relaxed about keeping track of what I owed them! 2) What is the most frequently asked question by a client? Apart from the continual stream of technical and tax related queries which always keeps me on ...
