Russell and Sons Ltd is a Preston based, family-run business, which for more than 25 years has provided plastering and damp proofing services to domestic, commercial and industrial clients.
Director, John Russell, is the first to admit that he is ‘old school’ in his business approach. “I like everything done properly,” he said. “Nowadays, the construction sector is governed by a lot of rules and regulations so I like to be out on site, making sure that every job we do is carried out to the high standards I expect”.
“That means that you’ll rarely find me in the office as my time is limited and, like many self-employed business people, I don’t have the inclination to spend my evenings immersed in admin and paperwork.”
For the past ten years, John has entrusted his accounting and year-end tax returns to Rebecca Bradshaw and the team at Rotherham Taylor.
“They are absolutely fantastic,” said John. “The whole process goes so smoothly. They take all our VAT receipts and just get on with it. If they have any questions, they call me, but by and large they leave me to get on with running and growing our business, while working away in the background ensuring everything is returned on time and that we are paying the right amount of tax”.
“I particularly appreciate the fact that they are so efficient and that I don’t need to chase or remind them. If I do need to call them and Rebecca isn’t around, she always gets back to me promptly”.
“I really can’t speak highly enough of the team at RT. Since they have been on board our VAT returns and year ends including payroll are always submitted in plenty of time which means I am free to concentrate on expanding the business and looking after our clients.”
