A different way of dealing with business accounts

At Purple Lime, you and your business are at the heart of everything we do. We’re not a traditional accountancy firm, we want to get to know you, your business and your hopes and ambitions.

Technology has made capturing and processing data much faster, so it’s easier to produce up to date, in depth reports to see exactly what is going on in your organisation. This gives us a greater opportunity to offer strategic advice to keep your business on the path to success. We consider ourselves part of the new wave of accountancy firms, who can take on stand-alone tasks or act as your outsourced finance department depending on your business needs.

We take a proactive approach and keep in touch regularly throughout your accounting year to collect financial data, report in real time and give you the financial edge over your competitors.

Our mission, vision and values

Our team at Purple Lime is driven by your needs. As the world changes and technology becomes increasingly important, you need to feel confident that your financial data is safe, secure and accurate, and we use the latest cloud-based technology to achieve this. It also means we can keep a constant eye on your finances, avoiding any last-minute panics and catching trends as they happen. Of course, we do the traditional things you’d expect from your accountant, but we think your business deserves a little more.

Some feedback from our clients

I am really happy with the service that Purple Lime are providing to Silver Bullet. Outsourcing our finance function allows our business to remain lean and focussed on delivering value to our clients whilst we scale.

Engaging with Purple Lime was an easy process and their use of cloud technology meant it wasn’t long before we saw the value of their output. This is by far the best accounting firm we have worked with, so I pass on my thanks to the team!

Andrew Mole - Silver Bullet

We had a number of accountants and advisers before meeting Purple Lime and can now say with certainty we have found the right accounting partners to help us move our business forward. Working with the Purple Lime team is great.
