Prior to working with Allans, I used to literally dread meetings with my accountant as they were always very boring, mundane, figures and compliance driven, not very inspiring.
Since working with Allans…
I actually look forward to our quarterly meetings because as well as reviewing figures, Naresh is always challenging me in terms of decisions I’m making and there is always an element of coaching involved which actually means I leave meetings elevated, even empowered!
I chose to work with Allans as I felt my business was aligned to theirs. I was introduced to them by my business coach, but had coincidentally met Dipak at a course I had been on, coincidence?
I doubt it!
They are forward thinking accountants who, as well as dealing with the figures, are like my financial team providing financial leadership and they also challenge me on my decisions. This is a really important part of the service as it encourages me to really consider why am I doing what I am about to do and if it doesn’t stack up I don’t do it, it’s as simple as that.
Here are some examples of the ways Allans have helped me:
- Securing a significant VAT refund for poor technical understanding from my previous accountant AND dealing successfully with a 4 hour VAT inspection specifically for the VAT man to find holes in our rebate claim, which they did not!.
- Significant tax savings by suggesting our childcare is paid via the company.
- Very efficient responses, whether by email, phone or letters (a far cry from my old accountant who could take weeks to return just my calls) a fast response is critical when you are running a growing business.
- Assisting me with my claim letters against my former accountant.
- Dealing with a recent Tax enquiry on my Self assessment return, where HMRC confirmed one of the reasons he did NOT charge a penalty was due to the efficient responses from my accountants, given penalties start at 100% of the tax underpaid, Alllans dealing with the case saved me over £2,000 – they more than pay for thier bill in value terms.
- Regular financial information provided quarterly at our meeting so I am up to date on financial health of my company, profit margins and tax liabilities in real time, so no nasty shocks!
Overall, Naresh and the team at Allans have been amazing for my business and I feel they have always got my back, they work with me, I have complete faith in them. They provide me with a financial director in my business who will not only challenge me but also guide the decisions I am making.
I now look forward to my meetings with the Accountant!
If you are an entrepreneur who wants to concentrate on the growth and development of your business then these guys are the team for you.
Thanks Dipak & Naresh

I was first introduced to Naresh Haldipur by my old accountant!
Yes, you could say Naresh Haldipur is the accountants, accountant.
We are a fast growing young & vibrant company and quickly outgrew our first accountant, we wanted and needed more support, expertise and most importantly the financial clout of a Finance Director!
Naresh and his team at Allans have given me and my company, the backing and support I would expect from a partner or director, Naresh’s approach and commitment to our success is clear and has built confidence in us and our business a whole.
I can hold my own in any meeting or encounter, such is the benefit we have received by having Naresh by our side.
I cannot over emphasise the backing we have received from Naresh we are delighted that Naresh has given his support to help me and my team fulfill on our vision, and it’s working!
In the world of Accountants Naresh is a rare bread in that he really understands our entrepreneurial aspirations and plays full out with us, its great to have him on our side!
Having Naresh in our team means we are aware of finical pitfalls that may be ahead of us, this is critical in a growing business when CASH-FLOW is key.
The real win, win here is that I have back up as and when needed, it’s not all cash and finance, sometimes its great to be able to have an intelligent conversation with him regarding other aspects of our business, Naresh is well informed and level headed and I have confidence in him.
I can recommend Naresh and the team at Allans to any business owner looking to up their game, they are simply brilliant.
Thank you Naresh, I look forward to the years ahead!

Starting a business is life changing, well it has been for me.
My story is typical…
I felt I could do a better job than the company I was working for, so my business partner and I started a company and we were in business!
At the beginning we had very little experience running a business, but we were keen and good at getting contracts, we soon started to grow.
After getting through 4 accountants, we just didn’t feel like we had the support we needed and then we were recommended to Naresh and the team at Allans, and they have been with us ever since, Naresh has supported us in many ways.
In the beginning he took me through the basics, showing me how to understand accounts. He has also supported me keeping the life blood of the company flowing, CASH!
Fast forward 5 years…
Our company is going from strength to strength and Naresh’s input is critical, he is a safe pair of hands managing our finances and because of this we are able to do what we are great at, getting business and delivering on our promises to our clients.
If you are ambitious and want to build your dream business, then a finically well managed business is crucial.
Beyond finance is where Naresh has really shown his worth, he is very knowledgeable and is always bringing great ideas and contacts to us.
I can highly recommend Naresh and the team, they will become a real asset to any ambitious business.
I cannot imagine running my business without Allans. I recommend a meeting with Naresh you will see things in a different way, this is rare and very unexpected when it comes to accountants.
