Director’s Message

As qualified Chartered Management Accountants that hold a practicing certificate you can be assured that are no better placed or better qualified accountants to help your business through the crisis that we all face at the time of writing.

Park Lane Accountants was founded in 2006 at the beginning of what was then a deep recession. At that time we did no appreciate the extent to which that crisis would affect us all.

Now, however we face a threat in coronavirus that threatens our lives as well as the lives of our families, friends and neighbours. Our business and your business is important to us but the safety of everyone must be paramount.  You can be assured that we will work hard to help you through the latest crisis and rebuild our lives after this has passed. We are all in this together and no one is alone or unaffected.

Our ethos from the very start has been to help make a positive difference to the clients that we serve as we realised very early on that if our clients are successful then we will be too. We have reinforced that ethos by recruiting a very small but inspired team of skilful and experienced individuals that have not only the talent to help your business succeed but also have the correct mental attitude that is required when you are a small business.

Our focus is on your business at all times.

We are also aware of our social responsibility towards those less fortunate than ourselves and that is why supporting local charities with our time and our membership of B1G1 is so important to us. In many ways our charitable ties, however modest, is an act of selfishness as the positive feeling of making a difference in some way justifies why we too operate a small business. Running a small business can be tough for anyone so B1G1 gives us a little perspective, humility and justification for doing it. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Finally, the right time to start a business is now, it’s always now, not tomorrow, not yesterday but now. You may fail and many do but the right time is always now.

If you have determination and a similar ethos to our own then we want to hear from you.

Barrie Jenkins, Director of Park Lane Accountants
