About Woods Russell

At Woods Russell Accounting, ethos is rooted in responsiveness and ethics when it comes to client care. Since the brand’s inception in 2016, Woods Russell has aimed to provide a premium service that goes beyond traditional accounting practices.

The founder, drawing from experience in the accounting and insurance sectors, took steps to place client satisfaction and ethical business practices within the company’s foundations.

The business deliberately positions itself as a premium service provider. While fees are slightly higher, it aims to deliver an unparalleled level of service that clients, mainly limited companies with an annual turnover of under £10 million, truly value. This approach has allowed Woods Russell to build a trusted reputation, with its client base - steadily growing over the course of seven years.

The brand’s customer-centric strategy is tailored to businesses sized between 2-5 employees, with a yearly turnover between £300-500k. In addition to the primary client base, services extend to sole traders and self-employed individuals.

Woods Russell offer a range of service packages for customers including the Virtual Finance Director package enabling you to partner with your clients, while aiming to offer an unparalleled level of service.

Current services on offer include managing year-end accounts, VAT, and payroll, which are integrated into monthly-retainer packages. The business has also implemented a monthly payment system, ensuring a steady cash flow for franchisees while eliminating the need for chasing invoices or credit control.

Woods Russell promises to turn around accounts within one month from receiving the information. Costs are transparent, confirmed upfront, and presented as a monthly amount for the client’s clarity. Teams commit to responding to clients within one working day.
