As a female business owner, I understand the pressure of wanting to achieve success, whilst maintaining a healthy work/life balance. That’s why I want to help ambitious and driven women achieve their personal and business goals through running successful and profitable businesses.
Unlike traditional, starchy and boring accountancy firms, the team and I at Melanie Curtis Accountants offer a relaxed and friendly approach to accounting and speak to our clients in plain English rather than technical jargon!
I want to help female business owners realise the importance of knowing and understanding their numbers – accounting is NOT a black art!
We offer typical accounting services such as annual accounts, bookkeeping and payroll, but for those who want to take their businesses to the next level, I can also offer tailored business growth and development services.
A Bit More About Mel Curtis
I am a very proud female business owner, especially in an industry that is very male-dominated! I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant 24 years ago and started my accounting career in industry, lastly as a Financial Controller for a printing company some 20+ years ago, so I know all about running finances for larger businesses and the challenges that they have. After having my first child, I moved from industry into practice and worked for traditional accountancy firms, working with small and medium sized businesses. I took the plunge and set up Melanie Curtis Accountants over 15 years ago after wanting to offer a service that was refreshingly different.
Over the years I have built an extremely loyal client base, a brilliant team and have gone from offering typical accountancy services to full wrap-around services to help clients reach their true business and personal potential. 15 years on and I still love what I do! I am extremely passionate about enabling business owners to build better businesses, particularly female-owned businesses and also run accountability coaching sessions as well as Business Development events. As a testament to the level of service we provide, I have very excitingly been selected as ‘Sole Practitioner of the Year 2020’ in the Accounting Excellence awards, which I’m extremely grateful for.
So what are we really like to work with? Take a look at reviews from some of our female business owner clients!
"I have been with Mel and her team now for almost 3 years - I wish I had know about you all WAY sooner in my career as I would have used you all along. I've had some very bad experiences in the past and have paid a lot of money to companies who just left.
Outstanding service! I know NOTHING about accounts and VAT and the like, which can be a very scary place to be as a business owner. I'm so thankful I know I have real professionals, who also happen to be lovely people, doing everything for me. Thank you."
Stacey Stockwell Training Ltd
"This is the first time I've been self-employed and Mel and her team have been absolutely fantastic, from incorporating the company to setting up all the various accounting elements that are required. The whole team is friendly, professional and go the extra mile to help. I've asked a lot of stupid questions but they answered them all quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend them to anyone!"
Sharon Beardmore - RohoYoga / Bemore Consulting Ltd
"I have worked with Mel and her team for the last 16 years. They have always been very helpful and professional, I would highly recommend them. They deserve 5 stars!"
Dawn Gillett - Bishopswood Day Nursery Limited
"We decided at the end of 2017 to change accountants, and we have not looked back! What we anticipated to be a stressful, drawn out and complicated process proved to be completely the opposite. Mel and her team have looked after us incredibly well and held our hands throughout the whole process. It has been smooth and transparent and in just a matter of a few months, the transition is complete and we are about to embark on some exciting new projects with a huge amount of guidance and support from Mel. Thank you all so much, we can’t believe the difference a few months have made to our fledgling business!"
Jen - Precision Plumbing & Heating Ltd
"I switched to working with Melanie and her team having had a bad experience with another local accountancy firm. Fortunately Melanie and her colleagues have been able to provide the service I was previously missing – prompt, friendly, and helpful. As someone who is a numbers alien I particularly value their willingness to explain accountancy matters in lay terms!"
Perspectives Psychology Ltd
"I moved over to Melanie Curtis Accountants after a disastrous experience elsewhere. Melanie was great whilst on-boarding and since then her team have been fantastic at getting my accounts back on track. They are extremely knowledgeable and proactive and I feel very supported. Extremely happy with my choice to be with Melanie Curtis Accountants and I recommend them to all business owners."
