“We needed to change accountant and I’d heard about Champion through my business partner’s brother, who already uses them. We’re a growing company and wanted an accountant who could help us with the whole package. Champion have been great – they don’t just offer us accountancy services, we also receive help from their wider network with HR advice, legal and more. They also do our payroll for a growing team of staff.

“What I really like is that they come in and provide a sounding board for our commercial ideas, guiding us on the right path. They’re so transparent and their contribution has helped us to achieve our best year to-date.”

Craig Turner, Sales Director at Ideal Aluminium Systems


“We outsource our payroll function to Champion as such a role doesn’t warrant a full-time member of staff, plus we want the peace of mind that this critical role is being handled by an expert with the specialist knowledge and technical capability required. Whether we had 30 staff or 300, outsourcing key parts of your operations makes good business sense, as Champion’s payroll team are always on hand to advise and support as and when required, whether that’s onboarding new staff or changes to existing staff circumstances, which delivers a far more efficient and cost-effective function than employing someone internally.”

Ian Bennett, Finance Director at Artorius


“Champion’s Preston team have supported The Royal British Legion for more than 50 years – long before the practice became part of Champion. They assist with our year-end accounts, attending our annual AGM and presenting to our members to act as a true extension of our charity.”

“Over the years, we have outsourced more critical functions to Champion, with them now handling our payroll. The lady who used to manage our wages left us a number of years ago and outsourcing this to Champion was a no brainer.”

“It’s rare to find an accountant who has a vested interest in what you do and that’s exactly why we’ve remained with Champion. Nothing is too much trouble. They’re just a phone call away and the level of service we’ve received has never wavered throughout all these years.”

Scott Niven, Steward at The Royal British Legion
