19th Mar – Software Developer, Bristol, £500k turnover

Immediately receptive to the idea of meeting, saying that they’ve been giving some thought to switching to a firm that can help take them to the next level. They’ve been using the current accountants since 2013 but are generally pretty unsatisfied with them due to their lack of proactivity and inexperience with tech companies. They’re turning over about £500k at the moment and have good margins, which means a high corporation tax bill, so they’re looking for any ways of mitigating against that. They’re also looking at potential sources of outside investment, so that’s something else to chat about on the day.
