Bode Olaniyan

Managing Director

An effective TEAM is formed when we help YOU focus on running your business while WE focus on helping you grow, improve profits, minimise your tax and comply with all tax & accounting rules.

We take a slightly different view to most other firms when it comes to the ‘TEAM’. You see, our view is simple: the TEAM comprises of US AND YOU, not just us.

That’s why we work so hard to build a solid relationship with you and all our other clients. It’s what helps set us apart from all other accountancy firms.

In fact the TEAM ETHOS we work to is the key ingredient in forging a successful relationship with you.

Every successful TEAM has a leader and our team leader is Bode Olaniyan. Bode is a friendly and experienced professional who has spent over 20 years helping ambitious owner managed businesses like yours to profitably grow their revenue , improve their profits and minimise their tax bills while staying fully compliant with tax and accounting rules.

During his career, he found that too many business owners spend their time looking at accounts and data which tell them what has happened in the past , when they should be looking at accounts that help them make decisions about the future. He likens this to “driving your car with all your attention focused on the rear view mirror”.

It is this desire to help more business owners look forward and pro actively manage their growth, profitability, tax and accounting that drives our TEAM approach.
