The secret to business growth is hidden in your accounts

Management Accounts

Use the data at your fingertips to supercharge your business success.

Misunderstanding your own accounts is one of the fastest ways to damage or stagnate your business. Establish a robust, responsive, big picture financial reporting system and you’ll see a clear path to success.

We don’t just track your finances. We live and breathe the opportunities and challenges that come with running a business, acting as your trusted advisors, helping you to make decisions, avoid pitfalls, and ultimately reach your biggest goals in business.

Our management accounts team help businesses to:

  • Regain control of poorly managed accounts: So many SMEs struggle to manage their accounts. Inefficient bookkeeping can be fatal for even the very best businesses. At Champion Accountants, we’ve worked with countless clients who believed their businesses were in strong financial health thanks to the misleading or incomplete picture given by their accounts. We’ll dissect your accounts, empowering you to understand your business, its strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and challenges.
  • Gather a full picture of your financial health: Do you have a strong grip on the cash flow in and out of your business, the money you’re making, your profit margins, and any challenges ahead?
  • Track your chosen KPIs: We’re here to help you monitor turnover, net profit, debt levels and any other indicators you choose, financial or non-financial. See changes as they happen and respond before it’s too late. Stay on the right track.
  • Forecast cash flow and make decisions: Are you making profit? Can you buy new assets? Are you paying market average salaries? We’re here to help you seize opportunities when they arise and chart a course with full knowledge of the road ahead.

Case Studies


“Before my current businesses, I actually worked under Ged Cosgrove in the ‘80s. Yet my true passion wasn’t in accountancy and I left to join the hospitality industry. Years later, I acquired a business that had an accountant who was close to retirement. Of course, when the time came to replace them, I had no hesitation in turning to Champion Accountants to look after our affairs.

“Beyond meticulously maintained and accurate accounts, they’ve also given me significant guidance in areas I would never have thought of alone. Most notably, in the area of R&D Tax Relief. We had developed an app for our bars that, as well as offering a loyalty scheme, also qualifies as R&D. Having this tech available has proven to be invaluable during COVID-19 too, as Government measures required hospitality venues to offer table service and in-app ordering — two things we already had in place — almost overnight.

“With finances, rules are always changing, so you want and need your accountancy team to be well versed with the latest regulations. Champion is on the ball. They proactively find solutions, and their expertise has helped us continue to adapt to this new world we’re in. Having a firm like Champion at our disposal has proven to be one of the best investments I’ve made. They’re always a phone call or email away from solving a problem.”

Eddie McCauley, Landmark Inns & Popbev


“Accounting is a necessity but with Champion, you get more than just an accountant – they offer great business support. Whenever I ask for anything, it’s done on time and it’s done properly – I’m always happy with the results. They’re upfront about fees, so there are never any surprises. I have complete confidence in Champion, so much so that I’ve already recommended them to others.”

Nick Whatmore, Director at Road King


Chrysalis Finance is the largest provider of healthcare finance in the UK. Based in Alderley Edge with a team of 30, it offers finance solutions for clients to pay for private medical procedures and dental healthcare.

When Chrysalis Finance launched in 2012, the company hired Champion Accountants to undertake basic bookkeeping and accounts with a view to growing the business exponentially in coming years.

Director Will Harris said: “Prior to setting up Chrysalis Finance, I’d worked with some of the largest accountancy firms in the UK and I can honestly say their service cannot compare to that we receive – and have always received – from Champion.

“Their service has grown alongside our business and we now receive audit support, as well as consultancy on our tax and corporate finance. Our financial director is able to work seamlessly alongside Champion, such is their ability to flex around our processes and requirements, and we welcome their strategic and practical advice.

“Champion’s service outshines that of the larger accountancy firms you’ll come across, but is much more accessible. We’ll continue to use them for years to come.”

“When I took over Sevron, our accounts could have been sharper, and we needed a change. My dad used to be a solicitor and worked closely with Andy Boniface who was a senior member of the team at Champion’s Blackpool office. He couldn’t recommend them highly enough, so we met and eventually moved our annual accounts to Champion.

“Over time, our relationship with Champion flourished and we looked to take more services. We were introduced to David Herd in the Manchester office, who immediately demonstrated that he was an expert in tax and could really help our business unlock some potential.”

Dave Toole, MD of Sevron & Compliance Scoring
