Accounts Case Study From a Local Dumbarton Business

JC Electrical & Security Solutions contacted our team several years ago when they were business working from home with big dreams and an obvious work ethic and vision of how to achieve their vision. Over the last few years whilst working with ourselves John and his team have grown into a company of four with new premises in Old Kilpatrick just outside of Dumbarton.

John went ahead an created a successful electrical and security services company based in West Dunbartonshire serving Glasgow and the west of Scotland. With the vital skills John has developed working offshore for decades in his business sector with some of the largest companies European companies in the industry.

With well-known names such as Subsea 7, Spie, Caledonian Electrical, Palmaris Services and SPG adding to an already impressive list of customers John and his staff who themselves live in the Dumbarton area decided to take the business to next level. The next step was to hire three more employees from the local area having recently moved into brand new premises in nearby Yoker.

After being asked about his companies rapid growth; amongst other factors, John quickly credited support from other local companies in the Dumbarton area including his membership with the Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce and his accountants B-Able Business Services Ltd. He left us the following kind words:

Emma and the team have been excellent over the last 2 years. My business needs have developed and changed as the business has grown. They have guided and advised on the best way to process/manage the situation every step of the way. I would advise anyone starting in business to use B-Able as they have an abundance of experience within all business services.

Thanks again guys! John

Our team at B-Able Business Services Ltd played a crucial part in the business growth, organising and analysing John’s income and expenditure, including offering extra business support and advice to ensure John stayed ahead of the game with tax liabilities and on course for growing the business at a pace he could manage. B-Able Business Services Ltd was on hand to provide assistance on how to approach the new business acquisition, with advice on how to negotiate the sale, which maximised the impact this new revenue stream had on the business.

JC Electrical & Security Solutions are now a well established and recognised business in the West Dunbartonshire community which was important to John, who like our Director (Emma) at B-Able, has lived in the area for over twenty years.  Eager to boost and improve the local economy by establishing their businesses in their hometowns.

We too have a close working relationship with Damon Scott the Chief Executive of the Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce who John personally credited a large amount of his success too, details of which you can read on this article. 


Having used B-Able for the last few years, dealing with my tax returns and national insurance contributions it has been made so simple for me. Emma and the staff are lovely and so easy to deal with. An excellent service and I couldn’t recommend enough! Thanks again.

Things to consider when selecting an accountant in Dumbarton & Helensburgh

  1.  Enquire as to exactly which financial services & advice the accountants will offer you, specifics are always a good idea. You should always shortlist fundamentals like your companies employee headcount, turnover, turnover projections and your potential for growth in the coming years. The idea behind this is to ensure the accountant you choose will offer your business complete accountancy services including payroll services, regular bookkeeping services for companies with high volumes of transactions, individual tax returns and self-assessment paperwork and other services that keep the tax man at bay. Always make sure if you are a limited company that your accountant will manage the HMRC on your companies behalf.
  2.  ALWAYS make sure any accountants that you are thinking of contact are qualified by ensuring they are members of recognised UK financial accountancy bodies such as the CPAA (Certified Public Accountants Association)
  3.  Have a conversation with the accountants or bookkeepers you choose, often we have spoken to business owners who simply register themselves online or turn up to complete a short form before making sure the accountants you register your business with for potentially decades to come, suit your business needs. Any accountant you speak too should be clear on which type of trading your business is best suited for. For many business owners, we find they are not completely clear on why they are better suited to being a sole trader, limited company or any other type of company. Simply put you should feel always as if your accountant on onside with your company and not the HMRC!
  4.  Decide if an accountant’s geographical location will matter to you or not? You should find out how often you will need to visit your chosen firm, can you deal with them over the phone as a virtual service for say an online e-commerce business or would it be ideal if they are local accountants near you so you can drive to meet them when required or they can visit your premises.
  5. This one is really simple yet often overlooked; ask other small business owners you know if they recommend their own accountants? Most of our work comes from word of mouth and any accountants that offer a strong service should be confident on people checking their track record with existing customers.
