It’s not uncommon for the self-employed and small businesses to struggle when it comes to finding the right accounting service, usually feeling overlooked for the larger clients paying higher fees.
Identifying the gap in the market and with experience working for larger and more established businesses, SAS created SAS Micro in 2016. The business specialises in providing accounting and taxation services for individuals and micro-entities, typically those with annual turnover below £400k.
SAS Micro’s Practice Manager, Finlay Everington explains, ‘We decided to set up an accountancy practice that put small business support at the forefront, with our growing team focussed on providing quality yet affordable accountants services to this underserved section of the market.
By utilising technology, we have been able to provide small businesses with the level of service they deserve, with our ethos being that all clients are as important as one another. At SAS Micro, no one gets left at the back of the queue.’
With the backing of parent company SAS, SAS Micro are able to support clients from the start-up phase, right up to becoming an established business and beyond.
Hemel Hempstead based X3 Ltd are an E-Commerce retailer specialising in sewing and crafts. The company sought the expertise of local accountant SAS Micro at the very outset, with the business then achieving exceptional growth in a relatively short amount of time.
Jason Fields Managing Director of X3 Ltd, explains; ‘We were drawn to SAS Micro based on the innovative digital aspect of their accountancy service, which was a perfect fit with our E-Commerce business structure. The team were able to implement everything we needed, and we were able to leave the day to day financial management in their capable hands.’
Having outgrown SAS Micro, Jason recently made the seamless switch up to SAS.
Jason continues; ‘Finlay and the team at SAS Micro supported us the whole way until the business grew considerably, at which point we moved over to SAS, who have been able to help us take things to the next level. The team at SAS Micro helped us go from zero to £8 million turnover in a year.‘
Through SAS Micro’s fixed-fee accountancy, smaller Limited Companies have the flexibility to grow, ensuring there is support throughout their journey.
