Accountant
Meet me here:

“I have three objectives when working with a client:
1. Provide person-to-person accounting.
2. Never confuse them when talking about ‘the books’.
3. Make their life as easy as possible.”

When he’s away from his desk, Kevin is a family man with a wife and two young children. A die-hard Liverpool FC fan, Kevin will likely retire once his youngest signs his first pro contract (aged 3.5 at the time of writing).

Testimonials
We’ve used Kevin and his services for just over a year now and are more than happy with his level of professionalism, and above all his industry knowledge when it comes to legitimate tax savings in our business sector.
P & E Green, K9 Protection Ltd
Kevin at Platform Accounting has provided an exceptional service and I would happily recommend him (and have done numerous times). Platform’s customer service is second to none and numerous times Kevin has gone out of his way to help us. When I needed an urgent certified copy of my accounts, Kevin had them out by special delivery within 2 hours of me asking.

Kevin was my go-to contact during his banking career so it was a very simple decision to let him look after my accounts. Being a plasterer by trade, receipts & bank statements are something I struggle with, yet Kevin seems to make the task of looking after them almost effortless. I always know where I stand financially and more importantly, he’s always available for a chat should I need to run something by him. Highly recommended!

Kevin was recently introduced to me by a work colleague and boy do I owe that colleague a pat on the back! At that time, I’d recently formed a limited company and things were in somewhat of a mess due to the approach taken by my then accountant. To put it in simple terms, Kevin took us by the scruff of the neck and put us on the right track in record time. Having gone from the extreme of not understanding the basic of VAT or CIS and worrying about the various deadlines to having everything at the touch of the button (and in the ‘cloud’ I may add), he’s been a delight to deal with. In all honesty, I don’t know where we’d be without him.

Kevin has been a cut above any accountant I have dealt with in the past. He has been able to offer more help and advice in an hour than my previous accountant could in 3 years! Even now as a customer I get prompt responses to any emails I send with understandable answers, they’re not filled with technical jargon which results in more questions than answers. I have always heard people saying a good accountant is worth their weight in gold – after being in business for nearly 7 years I now realise how true that statement is. I genuinely cannot recommend him highly enough.
