Why we are different

There are many providers of accounting and management consultancy services but we differ in the following respects:

We are not a typical accountancy practice!

Our area of expertise is working within organisations to optimise their financial performance. A typical accountancy practice interacts with organisations from an external perspective providing advice and services in compliance areas such as audit and taxation. Because we have extensive experience within finance departments of commercial organisations we understand the challenges that businesses face on a daily basis and, more importantly, we know how to manage these challenges.

Dedicated Service

Our business model is predicated on a small client base where the client enjoys a dedicated service. We encourage our clients to interact with us on a constant basis through face to face meetings, phone, e-mail and remote access to accounting systems if appropriate. This allows us to develop our understanding of the client's business and optimise the value that we can add. We enable our clients to enjoy the advantages of an in-house financial controller (without the associated costs!)


We understand the pressures that businesses are experiencing. We have a no-frills cost base so our clients are not paying fees to fund extravagant offices or an extensive staff hierarchy. We structure the service to give the maximum impact as cost effectively as possible so in this way our fees reflect your circumstances.

Our business philosophy

Partnership. Commitment. Integrity. Value. We focus on adding value to our clients with the intention to translate this value into a long-term relationships. Our goal is to give you the best service executed with the highest professionalism and delivered on the most cost-effective basis. When you choose Financial Controler Online Limited, you receive a business partner dedicated to your growth, developing your potential and assisting your enterprise to deliver the best to your customers. We understand that communication is key to a good relationship so we will ensure that you are constantly receiving the advice and information you need to run your business.
