|Current Revenue per employee (RPE)||£40-£75K||£80-£150K|
Trade businesses tend to have a higher RPE because of their direct costs. A building company cannot build houses without materials and sub-contractors, whereas a consulting business just goes out and delivers.TAKE THE BOSS CALCULATOR
Industry: International freight forwarding and express courier services
Reason for seeking support:
We were a start up, needing assistance with everything from company formation through to annual accounts. That was just taken care of. With Alexander Michael, most of our time was spent focussing on goals and targets (business and personal).
“ We wanted to concentrate solely on the business, without worrying about the endless PAYE, VAT, CT & Income Tax deadlines. We also wanted to grow the business as fast as possible ”
“From the first meeting, it was obvious we were a good fit together. As one would expect of a soon to be industry leading freight forwarder, Globexair believed in delivering on time, often against the odds, yet always with precision. At Alexander Michael, we aim to do the same. Quarterly meetings are fun too. The combination of goal assessment & target realignment, with good food and some downtime is very fruitful”.
In the last 20 years, Alex has assisted over 500 clients across multiple industries, making them more money and saving them tax. A graduate of the University of Exeter, he is also a fellow of the Institute of Financial Accountants, and a founding member of the Federation of Tax Advisers.
Peter Rayney is an industry expert, who operates as an independent tax consultant. He is a two-time winner of Taxation Magazine’s prestigious ‘Writer Of The Year’ award. Peter is also the author of the small business accountant’s bible ‘Tax Planning for Family and Owner Managed Companies’.
Throughout Kate’s career, her passion for business development, specifically around people and all things HR, has spanned both corporate and SME markets, commercial and charity sectors. Companies have benefitted from external recognition including IIP, most recently Platinum level, and national awards around training and development programmes. An Associate member of the CIPD is included in Kate’s professional qualifications.
Luckily for those SMEs fortunate enough to work with Daryl, he left the banking sector behind and founded Advantage Business Partnerships, where he has put together a team of expert business mentors, coaches and consultants.
At Alexander Michael, we are proud to work with Daryl and his team of professionals who support our clients in getting what they want faster and easier than they would without them.
