We believe that doing the right thing gets results. We believe that brilliant, beautiful, commercially sustainable businesses are the future - and that this process can also be a huge amount of fun.

We naturally gravitate towards working with businesses with soul, with founders who want to do something wonderful with their business - for their team, themselves and their family. Our mission is to make it easy for people to build Beautiful Businesses.

OUR BEGINNINGS

Together, Peter and Paul founded The Wow Company in 2004. They believed accountants should be at the heart of building beautiful, commercially sustainable businesses.

The heartbeat of Wow has always been about great people working together. Over the years, we’ve built a team of smart, caring, passionate and fundamentally nice people. A team that loves helping people achieve their dreams and being part of the exciting journey of growing a business.

WHERE WE ARE NOW

Our brilliant team helps clients to build Beautiful Businesses day after day, year after year. We're incredibly proud of the service we deliver and the impact our support has on our clients. These days, we specialise in agencies, consultancies and tech businesses with 8-80 staff.

Our client experience principles

Our client experience principles

 

The relationship we have with our clients means everything to us at Wow. We spent a lot of time ensuring our client experience is truly 'Wow'. We boiled this down to six client experience principles, which guide how we work with our clients and drive everything, from our daily conversations to the services we offer and how we deliver them. They are:

Weve got your back
We've got your back
Walk a mile in your shoes
Walk a mile in your shoes
Well find a way
We'll find a way
Teamwork makes the dream work
Teamwork makes the dream work
Be the light
Be the light
Its all about you
It's all about you

What it’s like being a client

 

James Cotton, MD and Founder of digital agency Onespacemedia

Making the switch to Wow has proved to be one of the best business decisions we’ve ever made. The transition from our old firm was seamless and as well as managing our day to day accounting, the ongoing strategic advice they provide is a vital part of our stability and expansion.

James Cotton
MD & Founder of Onespacemedia

Katy Howell, CEO of social media agency Immediate Future

There’s something about Wow. A ‘something’ that goes beyond being just our accountants. They always do that bit extra. My Wow accountant connects and empathises, and understands what it is like when your head is in panic mode, and you’re worried about the numbers. She is patient too. She explains the finances to me again and again without complaint. It’s the reassurance I need that lets me focus on what I do best. It’s a great feeling to have experts like this by your side. Wow really are amazing.

CEO of Immediate Future
