How the Swindells Small Business Unit will help you achieve your goals

Melanie Richardson


We recognise the effort, courage and struggle that it takes to start your own business. A small business is a constant workload involving long sleepless nights, agonising over decisions and learning a range of new skills everyday from the financial side to how to find new clients. There is a lot to do.


That’s why we have created the Swindells Small Business Unit, a specialist ‘practice within a practice’ that operates in Sussex and the South East focussed on providing value for smaller businesses.


This article will explain the benefits of the unit and outline the accounting services for small businesses that  Swindells offers.


"Although I am only a small business I am treated with courtesy and respect. You make me feel valued."




Cost effective & flexible


We recognise that margins are tight, we are not the cheapest option out there and neither do we want to be. The value that our experienced team brings to your business goes so much further than number crunching and saving you money off your tax bill. We are here for advice and emergencies, to advise and guide you where appropriate and above all to have your and your business’ interests at heart.


We offer a range of services tailored to what you need for your small business; from a simple online accounting package, setup and training or basic business accounting to the whole gamut of small business bookkeeping, business accounts, tax & National Insurance claims, and payroll …you only pay for what your business needs.


"Timely, quality service at a fair price"

Our partners and staff work with hundreds of small businesses across Sussex and the South East every day.

Grow faster


The ability to spend more time on looking after your clients and acquriring new customers is invaluable for a small business.

By outsourcing these services you free up time and reduce your stress levels whilst we the experts can see opportunities that you may have missed.
