Running a business can be a lonely journey, but it doesn’t have to be

Let your accounting light the way

What would make next year better?

As a business owner, we understand that feeling of loneliness that can appear, even when you are in a room full of people. You aren’t sure if you are on the right track with your business and you’re feeling overwhelmed. 

As Stafford based accountants, we provide a safe space for our clients to share their business dreams, concerns and challenges. We want you to write down what it is that will make your life easier and we promise to do our best to help you get there. 

We've got you. We'll take it from here.

Grow, develop and
build your dreams

We offer accounting support for people who genuinely want a successful business. 

“Fly as high as you can - if you fall, we are always going to catch you”

This is the mantra Force Founder PJ has practiced with her children since they were little. It’s the mantra we repeat with our business owners too. 

At Force, we all have our own story of flying as high as we can to reach our goals. We’re constantly moving forward and trying to improve.

Quickbooks - tech that tells the truth!

We don’t stick with a brand unless we wholeheartedly trust it. Quickbooks does what we need it to do - it tells the truth. It lets you know how you are doing, helps you plan for how you want to be doing and aids in projecting how you could be doing.

Hear what our clients have to say

"I don’t know what I’d do without them. They take care of all the complicated bits, and they also take the time to explain things in an easy to understand manner. It really does take a lot of stress away from being self-employed, giving me the time I need to focus on serving my clients.
