Record number of tax returns

Despite the doom and gloom Lewis Smith & Co. has again handled a record number of tax returns.

The Chancellor may be finding it hard to stimulate growth in the economy but there is still plenty of economic activity.

Lewis Smith & Co., the Dudley based chartered accountants who provide services for businesses across the West Midlands, have had a very busy time processing tax returns to meet the 31st January 2012 cut-off date.

It is a significant point for Lewis Smith & Co., as Director Andrew Smith explains:

“I think we should be aware that there are still plenty of businesses achieving success out there. Many of our clients are still growing at a respectable rate and are using their experience and expertise to win new orders.

Of course it isn’t easy. ┬áThere is a lot of competition and the pressure on margins is intense, but the companies that understand their finances, understand their strengths and how to focus on them, and understand what their customers want are winning through.”

Lewis Smith & Co. are obviously taking their own medicine too. 2011 saw the business take on number of new accounts from around the region.

Andrew Smith explains how:

“If you look at our testimonials you’ll find a number of people commenting on the fact that we have proactively sought out ways to cut costs or suggest business improvements.

We are in a great position to spot where clients are being charged more than the norm for products and services, for instance, and we can use our network to find cheaper or better alternatives.┬áThat approach to doing business means that many of our new clients come to us through personal recommendation.”
