About Forrest Burlinson
Forrest Burlinson has been advising owner-managed businesses, professional partnerships and private individuals since 1975 and we are firmly committed to providing a “value for money” service that helps our clients to succeed and prosper. We aim to constantly exceed our clients' expectations by providing a first class service and maintaining the highest professional standards. We make effective use of information technology to allow quicker, and more efficient, processing of accounts, payroll and tax returns.
Our own business continues to grow largely as a result of recommendations from existing clients. This growth depends on a high level of personal contact between clients and partners, and we believe that our “hands on” policy gives us a unique understanding of the challenges facing businesses of all sizes. We offer the full range of services that you would expect from a firm of accountants, and many of our clients make full use of our extensive network of business and professional contacts to help them solve their financial and commercial problems. We maintain close personal contacts with banks and other lending agencies, enabling us to introduce clients to suitable sources of funding. We are also very experienced at advising and assisting clients to prepare effective business plans.
Our broad client base includes start-ups and established enterprises in a wide range of business sectors including manufacturing and textiles, wholesale and retail, transport and the motor trade, construction and property, restaurants and the licensed trade, and we are particularly committed to the medical profession. We also act for a number of clients in the regulated areas of financial services, charities and not for profit organisations.
As resellers of Sage and QuickBooks software, we are able to advise you on the accounting package most suited to your needs and can also supply these products to you at a discount. We will help you through the initial setting up procedures and even provide you with a full bookkeeping service by processing transactions on a monthly basis and providing you with the reports that are so essential to the efficient running of your business. We are always willing to meet potential new clients for an initial discussion, without charge, to explore their requirements and explain how we think we can help.
