When the director, Brendan O’Toole, first met Metric, the software products were still under development, the Company itself was in its infancy and there was no strategic or financial group structure.
Brendan asked Metric to suggest how to best structure the business. Metric, utilising their practical and commercial experience, was able to provide recommendations and advice before the first products were launched.
This has proven to be a very useful exercise for Lookimedia. Changing the structure at a later stage would have been very painful and complicated, something that Brendan really appreciates:
“We’ve been working with Metric for several years now and through that time have received a great many suggestions, recommendations and counselling that have brought multiple economic benefits to our business. They are true team players.”
Metric’s help was not limited to strategic advice. Metric provided specialist tax advice as well.
During the software development phase, Metric has supported Lookiimedia with two successful R&D tax credit claims. Metric, which has specialist R&D tax claim professionals and undertakes all the work at its Covent Garden office, is able to undertake the work alongside the preparation of the financial statements, making the process extremely efficient and effective.
Would you recommend Metric Accountants?
We asked Brendan whether he would recommend Metric to other tech and high growth companies. Here’s what he said:
“Absolutely. At Metric they know what they’re doing, work very hard to please and help you to succeed.
Brendan also had some excellent thoughts on how to get the most out of your relationship with Metric (and, in fact, other professional advisors):
“Take time to sit down with Metric and fully brief them about yourself, your business aspirations, and how your business ticks. Be open, share information. Metric are then in a better position to help you scope out your accounting systems, procedures and key goals for the year or two ahead, in particular picking up on any issues or opportunities that you might otherwise overlook.”
