Ainsley Smith & Co is a Chartered Accountancy Firm based in the beautiful town of Oban on the West Coast of Scotland.
The Firm specialises in giving a professional but personal service to all its clients. We have clients from all over the west coast of Scotland including the islands of Colonsay, Islay, Mull, Tiree and Coll. We are proud that we take time to get to know and visit our clients business as we do not think we can help a business unless we really understand how it works.
Accountancy is about much more than annual accounts and tax calculations. Although these are of course important, it is vital for businesses to have the right information to enable them to interpret how they are getting on and how they can best manage their future. We are closely involved with businesses throughout the year advising where required on many management issues such as employment, asset purchase, investment, tax planning and expansion. We can prepare management accounts as well as statutory year end accounts, tax computations and tax returns.
We deal with a lot of new businesses and can offer advice at what is an anxious but exciting time. We can help develop and produce business plans and cash flow projections and liaise with banks and grant bodies to help with initial finance. Many of our existing clients have been with us since day one and we have helped them through the initial start up problems, growth and consolidating a long term successful business.
For individuals we also offer a wide range of services such as tax planning including inheritance tax, retirement advice and Capital Gains Tax planning.
We hope that you will enjoy looking at the services we can offer and that you will make an appointment to have a face to face meeting to see how we can help you. Our first consultation will be free of charge. We look forward to meeting you.
