We started the company at the beginning of 2013, determined our brand of accountancy would make a difference. Pomegranate would deliver the fundamentals such as accounts and taxation with rigour and professionalism. But we would go much further. We would be a sounding board, listening to clients’ broader business and financial challenges; and, most importantly, we would provide solutions.
Since then we’ve taken on a wide range of client issues from raising capital to untangling the maze that is HMRC. For us, it’s all part of the Pomegranate promise – to commit and care. People come first, always, and we build our client relationships on trust and integrity.
We are known to be approachable as well as expert and will continue to offer free Saturday morning consultations over a coffee at our new Manchester offices. This approach is attractive to potential start-ups with a bright business idea, but who are unsure how to put it into action. They like the informality but know the advice will be sound as our clinics are part of the Institute of Chartered Accountants’ Business Advice Service.
And whether we deal with new ventures or established companies, our ethos will remain the same. As our founder Ansar Mahmood puts it: “New clients approach us with an issue in one area and are surprised when we pro-actively offer them solutions to potential problems we spot elsewhere in their business. They are not used to it, but they like it! And so do we.
