About Smith Butler

Helping small and medium-sized businesses in Bradford, Yorkshire and throughout the UK by providing technology-led accountancy and financial services.

Forward-thinking accountancy

Hello, we are Smith Butler – a growing technology-led accountancy practice in Bradford that specialises in assisting small and medium-sized businesses.

Our story began back in 2004, when we had a vision to set up a forward-thinking accountancy practice in West Yorkshire that believes there is a better way of going about our line of work. 

On top of handling all things tax, we focus on advising growing businesses. We simplify our services for everyone through using cloud accounting software, and by treating our clients as we like to be treated – by being friendly, approachable, and down-to-earth.

People often don’t realise how much work we do behind the scenes, and for that reason we’re not the cheapest accountants in Bradford. But we offer value for money by combining a knowledgeable, precise, risk-free approach with a warm manner that aims to form trusting bonds that last longer than a single self-assessment season. 

It may sound simple but it’s an approach that really does work for us and our customers, who come from a wide range of sectors. 

 

6 reasons to choose Smith Butler…

Not convinced with the advice you’re getting? Fed up of being bombarded with technical jargon? Or do you simply want unlimited support with your business, no matter what stage it is at? Come to us if you want first-class services that are built on good advice and delivered in plain English. Let us see what we can do for you. 

1) Sensible fees

People often don’t realise how much work we do behind the scenes, and for that reason we’re not the cheapest accountants in Bradford. But what we do offer is fixed fees that reflect the brilliant service you receive from us. 

2) Quality services

You won’t be wasting money by getting bad advice from us, plain and simple. Many clients think we’re in a different league compared to our competitors as we always provide first-class services to reduce your tax bills. 

3) Genuine care

We’re approachable, friendly, and reassuring. Whichever service you need from us, we take the time to get to know the ins and outs of you or your business. That way, you know we’ll look after you and your finances. 

4) Fully responsive

If you’re paying for a service, you expect the lines of communication to be open at all times throughout the process. At Smith Butler, you can reach us in person, using cloud accounting software, through email or over the phone. 

5) Total transparency

We have nothing to hide. All of our services are totally transparent, which enables you to see where every pound you spend with us has gone – including paying for our service, what tax you’ve paid and what we’ve been able to save.

6) No false promises

Managing expectations is important. If you don’t qualify for a tax relief, we won’t mention it. We take care to do things right and this no-nonsense approach serves us well. We’re a safe pair of hands that you can rely on. 

Who you’re dealing with

Jason and Sally, Smith Butler’s two directors, set the tone for the others to follow. They founded the practice shortly after the Millennium and the principles upon which it was built are still going strong today. Bright, fresh-faced support staff are coming through the ranks and delivering consistent results with youthful exuberance to reduce your tax bill. We all share the same core values – to talk to you in a language you understand and deliver first-class services.  

Testimonials

By this point, you’ve probably read enough of us blowing our own trumpet and – if you’ve got this far – it’s about time you had some feedback for our clients. This is unedited feedback, mind. You won’t find just overwhelming good or bad reviews, like on some of the more well-known customer review sites – just good honest feedback from our clients. 

Prepared and submitted personal tax returns for a rental property for 4 years in arrears. Work was carried out very quickly and efficiently and resulted in a nice refund!

Money-back guarantee

If at any time you are dissatisfied with our work, don’t beat around the bush – let us know within 30 days of receiving our invoice. We’ll seek to resolve the issue and won’t bill you for that if we cannot resolve the issue to a satisfactory level. 

What that means is bringing your accounts to us is entirely risk-free. If you place trust in us to handle your finances, you’re in the best position to judge us for the service you receive and get the best value for your money. 

Business partnerships

We’re proud to be playing an active role in the community, and particularly proud of our association with Bradford City Football Club. We support the Bantams in getting back up the leagues and get to use Valley Parade’s facilities to run seminars, training sessions and meetings for our clients in return.

In terms of cloud accounting software, we’re Xero Platinum Partners, QuickBooks Elite Partners and long-term members of the Sage Accountants’ Club. We’re also partners with the 2020 Consulting Group and the financial advisors Clayton Holmes Naisbett.
