Short-listed for Independent Practice of the Year in the 2009 AND 2010 North East Accountancy Awards, we're the friendliest and most helpful accountancy practice in North Tyneside, looking after a range of self-employed people and small businesses. We're proactive, approachable and client focussed. We don't make staff sing the school song every morning, but we do expect these qualities to be integral to all we do. No Jargon, no 9 to 5 mentality, no mystifying charges. Just clear advice with a clear fixed fee policy.
Gosh. Many years doing stuff. Passed banking accountancy exams far too many years ago, then drifted into Business Analysis/Project Management...in other words then spent 20 years helping departments and organisations through painful change, with occasional far-out trips to Australia, Kazakhstan and Sheffield.
Set up the practice early 2005 - just me and no clients. We're now 5-strong in the office including my business partner Jon (he's the bright, hard working one and is Marketing Assistant at the 4N Newcastle Quayside). We must be doing something right as we have a good client retention record and much of our new business is generated from existing clients.
Reflected in our nomination for North East Accountants of the year 2009.
Best feedback I've had? "you don't seem like an accountant". .
So, up until 2 years ago, I would have defined an Accountant as....Dull, boring, likes calculators, baffles you in fugures then presents a VAT bill, oh, and his invoice...... Whats changed? I met Dave Gibson!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Breaking the mould would be an understatement...Incredibly knowledgeable, very friendly and direct in his approach. Understands what I need but more importantly, when I need it and why for. I seriously can not recommend Dave enough, and his team at Blu Sky for that matter!
This bloke is good. Does what it says on the tin! If you think your accountant should be helpful, a decent person, candid and provide a service, you should give Dave a call. He has saved the life of the tax office people, as I dont ever have to speak with them again. So, I stay out of jail. Good call. Cool company name too.....
Blu Sky rock - no need to say any more, but I'm going to anyway! We work in two ways for Blu Sky; first and foremost they're our accountants, and on top of that we refer all of our many new business startups to these guys, as we know they are one of the few (or possibly the only) accountants in the North East who will look after our clients as well as we do. Both Dave and John are top top blokes, friendly, approachable and know their stuff without being pretentious. Can't recommend them any higher.
