Nigel Jones had worked for several accountancy firms in York and Leeds before setting up in practice as Jones & Co on 29 February 1988 on a full-time basis. The decision to become self-employed was taken after looking at all the options and the financial risks, so the practicalities of starting and running a business are very familiar.
We were the first firm in York to have a website and have viewed online marketing as a key reason for our success. With so much information now being available it is very easy to set up and market a business but it also means that you have to be good at what you do.
As a business that specializes in business start-ups, we are a forward-looking firm. In addition to preparing a business start-up guide, we offer the many services that are listed on our App and on our website. Our clients receive regular newsletters and tax and financial guides, which keep them up to date with the constant changes in the tax and business world. We have also produced a number of help sheets which have been well received.
The firm’s clients are to be found throughout the country. The practice is growing at a very healthy rate as a result of the high quality, efficient personal service that we give our clients. We aim to make our relationship as enjoyable as possible and although business is a serious matter, it should also be fun.
Our office is situated just outside the centre of York but we do have onsite parking. We are situated between the Shell and Jet garages on Hull Road - there are maps on our website if you want to locate us in advance.
We specialise in providing information for new start-up businesses but deal with a range of other clients as well, offering accounting advice to small and medium sized businesses, consultants, contractors, the professional service sector and self-employed individuals.
