Kench & Co

Continuing to follow the original Kench motto of “All Chartered Accountants are not the same”, the new partnership between Kench & Co and Ridgefield Consulting is a well-suited match. Both firms share the same approach, and the priority is to deliver high quality services in an approachable and down-to-earth manner.

Strata is a different sort of accountancy firm; and we don’t just say that on the tin: we live and breathe it every day with the clients we work with. We are a growth partner; helping support business owners and leaders, and ensuring commercial decision-making is possible with the right information at the right time.

We are experienced accountants, providing bespoke support through changing financial times and periods of growth. This might be simply helping you to RUN your business: or you may want to KNOW your business in some more depth: or perhaps you’re ready to GROW your business. We can help you do all of these things, ensuring the must-dos are complied with and supporting on a much wider basis.

We can improve your business processes, provide you with financial insight and unlock your full potential.

Run your business
Let our skilled and experienced team take over the whole accountancy process with confidence and ease. We will help you incorporate, file your accounts, submit your corporation tax return, and free you up to do what you do best. Payroll, VAT, company secretarial: it’s our bread and butter.

Know your business
By looking at the financial landscape of your business today, you can make the right decisions for tomorrow. Up to date bank reconciliations and well-coded bookkeeping may not sound like core essentials, but doing these well with the right tech and set-up will give you live management information at your fingertips. You can know your sales, by type, your bank balance, your payments due, amounts owed and even your year to date profit. All on your phone or at your desk, at any time. We can either help you have this set up, or we can deliver this for you.

Grow your business
Often businesses realise that they’ve gone off track, or an opportunity comes along that they’re not quite ready for. We can help unblock almost any situation and get you back on track! Whether someone is leaving who plays a key role, or you have a new growth area, or something has gone wrong on the numbers, we are experienced financial directors that can be on your team, but not on your payroll.
