My journey to accountancy success

In the 1970s, I launched my first part-time accountancy practice from the comfort of home.

Once qualified as a Certified Accountant, I helped to develop three accountancy practices before selling my shares in two of these to pursue other business interests. I have continued in practice, all-be-it on a part-time basis, to this day.

Other business interests

Before disposing of the second practice I was managing 250 client relationships and twelve staff. Following the sale, I decided on a change of pace and ventured into the world of email marketing.

I quickly realised the benefits that this low-cost service offered to firms interested in keeping clients informed. This business was developed under the UKtaxworld brand.

I was able to build a significant subscriber list for this company, which was sold to a Dutch-based competitor in 2012.

Supporting practice development

Following my exit from UKtaxworld, I have been developing and providing marketing ideas and resources to over one hundred accountancy practices across the UK. These practice development services are marketed under the LandmarkPD brand.

The company’s main product, Fee Builder, sends subscribers monthly ideas and resources to transform basic compliance services into advisory-led services. When implemented, these strategies can have a significant impact on cross-sales and new client acquisitions.

Grounded ideas

Based on my own experiences in practice, I am keen to emphasise that LandmarkPD’s services are designed to minimise implementation and can be used out-of-the-box.

Special offer for AccountingWeb members

Building on the positive feedback from current subscribers, I feel that the time is right to offer LandmarkPD's practice development ideas to a wider audience. AccountingWeb members can get free access to the subscription service until 31 January 2022.

Practitioners can now sign up to LandmarkPD’s Fee Builder service at no initial cost, with ongoing participation in the service costing just £55 per month once the free trial ends.
