The firm began with the merger, in 1986, of the businesses of our two senior partners, Stephen O’Neill and Geoffrey Gibbs. Back then the offices were based in Streatham and the client base was generally located within the M25 area. We are very proud to say that many of those original clients are still with us today.
Our team is now comprised of 4 principals, 5 professional and 2 support staff and as a firm we are extremely lucky to have such a loyal workforce.
It is encouraged for our team to adopt a personal approach in dealing with clients, as by getting to know them and their business well helps us to better identify their needs and hence enable us to provide them with an all-round, bespoke service.
Our services include meeting with clients to fulfil both their aspirations and statutory obligations such as conducting an audit, preparing annual financial statements, tax returns and, Companies House documents, to being real business partners by producing VAT Returns, running RTI payroll, auto enrolment, producing management accounts, attending board meetings, developing strategy etc.
Technology is a vital part of the business world today and at Gibsons we are no different.
In times of reducing reliance on paper documents, the firm makes use of online filing for many forms to both HM Revenue & Customs and Companies House.
We are committed to help you understand the changes that the government have set out with Making Tax Digital (MTD). Making Tax Digital is a government initiative that sets out a vision for ‘a transformed tax system and the end of the tax return’ by 2020.
Our team is also well qualified to evaluate and advise clients as to the best accounting software for use in their business as well as being trained in the use of the industry leading software packages such as Sage and QuickBooks, as well as other cloud accounting programs such as Kashflow, Xero and Freeagent.
