About us

Welcome

When you are looking for accountancy, tax, business or financial advice, you want an adviser who gives you clear, practical and understandable answers that you act on straight away. An adviser who talks your language and doesn't sit on the fence. An adviser who understands your situation, your business and the strategic day to day challenges that you face. You’ll want to know exactly what you will get from them, when they will do it, how much it will cost and what the likely outcomes and impacts of the advice will be for you and for your business or organisation. You’ll also want an adviser who has the know-how and expertise to foresee the challenges, opportunities and potential future impacts of the decisions you make today. This is what we aim to provide to our clients.

How We Work

Advising businesses, charities, social enterprises and individuals.

Our objective is simple – we want to be viewed as your reliable first point of contact for all of your audit, accountancy, governance, reporting, taxation and financial needs, as well as helping you to achieve your vision, objectives and return on investment you require. Each of our clients enjoys a permanent, direct relationship with one or more of our Directors and Managers. This ensures that we always know where you are, where you are going and what you may need up ahead. With 2 directors and over 15 professional accountancy, tax, business consultants and wealth managers, we have the required expertise, skills and wherewithal to advise businesses from start-up, through the growth stages and on to becoming an established and profitable player in their market. Allied to this, we provide a full range of wealth management, personal tax and estate planning advice to individuals, company directors and partnerships to help them to plan for their future and comply with their legal and tax obligations. We also work with a significant number of third sector organisations by providing them with the assurance that they are complying with their statutory, governance, reporting and regulatory obligations, as well as providing them with the all the advice they require to run the charity, manage risk and their corporate governance requirements.

2To our environment
Our environmental commitment does not stem top-down from policies, or from our Chief Executive’s office. Environmental sustainability at Stratus Consultants is a systematic effort that flows from every member of our team – from the way we use paper/electronic documentation and interact and work with our clients, to the ways we travel to and from our clients offices and to and from our homes to our office. From the way we recycle paper, cardboard, plastics, food waste and other office waste to the ways and appliances we use to heat, light and secure our office. We encourage environmental awareness in all that we do and we encourage each other to recognise that both our business practices and our own individual actions can have detrimental impacts on the world we live in. It’s our duty to minimise our impact on environment. It’s our duty to comply with all the relevant environmental legislation and it’s our duty to encourage each other, our clients and the other intermediaries we work with to do the best they can to minimise their environmental impacts.
3To our local communities
We have an active annual charity partnership. Our current charity partner in Marie Curie Cancer Care Charity and we have developed a programme of activities and initiatives that provide significant benefit to the charity. Our Directors and staff also serve on charity boards and provide their services on a regular basis to help to improve awareness of the charities cause, help them to increase funds raised and support them be providing business, accountancy and tax advice on a pro bono basis.
