Work with us

Discovery Call

A Discovery Call is an opportunity for us to learn a little more about you, your businesses and what it is you’re trying to achieve and for you also to learn more about us.

Discover Meeting

A Discovery Meeting lets us understand your pain points and to understand your expectations and goals. During the meeting, we prepare a proposal based on your needs, fully detailing the service, fees and engagement terms.

Transition

We will write to your current Accountant and carry out our pain-free onboarding process to ensure that everything is as it should be and that you are familiar with your new team of advisors.

Deep Dive

Once we have access to all your data, we carry out a Deep Dive to identify errors and weaknesses in your Accounts, Financial Processes and Bookkeeping.

Secure Data

We have been entirely paperless since 2004. We secure and back up all of your accounting, bookkeeping and payroll data so that you never need to worry.

Euan Brown
Director & Quickbooks ProAdvisor

I started my accounting life in 1995 as an apprentice with my father’s firm, Alistair Brown Chartered Accountants. Then in 2004, I started Total Accounting to provide businesses with a complete outsourced accounting function. I continued to work closely with my fathers firm until his retiral when I absorbed his remaining clients. My time is spent on client relations and seeking out new technology to improve our automation and maximise our efficiencies.

When I am not at my desk, I will be with my family, on the golf course or injuring myself in the gym trying to lift the weights that I could do 20 years ago!

Teri-Ann Lawson
Director & Quickbooks ProAdvisor

I started with Total Accounting as a young woman in 2005 and became a Director aged 30 in 2017. My role is to make sure all everything flows through the office in the most efficient manner to a high standard and delivered on time. I particularly enjoy working on the design and implementation of new cloud-based accounting products and client training. I am in the process of adding to my current qualifications with the study on an additional tax qualification.   

Out of the office, I enjoy walking my dogs on the beach or carrying out a DIY project on my new house.
