Lewis Smith & Co. beats tax return record

2010 saw Lewis Smith & Co. beat all previous records for the number of tax returns filed by the January 31st deadline.

“Because of our success in attracting new clients during 2009 we had more tax returns to complete and file than ever before”, said Lewis Smith & Co. Director Andrew Smith. “It is a testament to the expertise and and effort of the whole team that we were able to get all of our clients’ returns posted before the deadline and ensure that everybody received the right treatment from HMRC”.

The Lewis Smith & Co. team gave itself the best possible start through the company’s move to larger premises in Grange Road, Dudley back in August. The new offices have much improved facilities for managing the throughput of client documentation and the allocation of work through to the appropriate experts in the team. It took a great deal of planning as well, of course, to make sure that a vastly increased amount of paperwork could be processed quickly and accurately.

“We started thinking about how we would manage the challenge of all of that new business back in the Autumn”, commented Andrew Smith. “Part of our approach was to encourage clients to provide information well in advance whilst at the same time preparing our business processes to cope with the last minute activity that is always required. Having a lot of business is one of those nice problems to have.”
