We moved to IDS + Co from our previous Accountant after we were recommended to engage their services to help with a complex Funding Application. We were very impressed with the detailed information they produced and felt confident that our Funders would be assured by the robust Forecasts and Business Plan they produced with our input. We very quickly realised that IDS + Co are very pro active and well informed about current financial legislation and support. As a small business growing rapidly, we have sought their advice on several occasions and have been able to make well informed decisions thanks to their practical advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending IDS + Co to other SME’s. Iain Sim and his team are a great support to our business.
At the start of my MBO experience I considered three highly recommended accountancy firms, two in Glasgow and IDS + Co in nearby Kilmarnock. I am pleased to say that I believe I made the correct selection. Iain Sim and Gill Groom produced an excellent Business Plan commended several times by potential funders which made the fund raising exercise much easier and quicker. Iain’s experience and contacts enabled various quality funding options to be able to be considered and the ultimate package selected. My journey so far with IDS has been very positive and successful and I would thoroughly recommend them.
I asked IDS + Co to take over the accounting, tax and business advisory services for my company due to the very pro-active attitude of the Firm, which I have benefited from since doing so.
Partners and staff alike are geared towards client service and high quality advice and support for businesses such as mine which has grown rapidly. Without their input and continual support it would have been very difficult for me to complete a buy-out of a larger company, including preparation of financial projections to allow the funding to proceed as well as integrating the financial reporting of the other business.
The advice is practical and common sense, drawing on a wide range of experience with many businesses. I always know that I can get in touch and talk through any issues which I may have as a small business owner, which is invaluable and I would be happy to recommend the Firm to prospective clients looking for more than just a compliance, accounting and tax service.
IDS + Co have assisted me in successfully setting up and selling two businesses, preparing business plans, obtaining funding and providing ongoing support and tax advice.
The partners and staff are always available when required and they have an extensive network of contacts to access for any business situation which may arise.
Iain’s hands-on experience of business provides practical solutions and encouragement for any SME company seeking to maximise its growth potential. I am happy to recommend them for business advice as well as all accounting and taxation matters.
I have used IDS +Co for around five years and have been able to build a brilliant relationship with all who support my businesses, from setting up VAT right through to personal tax to projections. I cannot fault the advice and support they all provide.
I look forward to many more supported years in partnership with them.
