Elan & Co - Your local Chartered Certified Accountants based
in London Bridge & The Exchange at Somerset House.

Do you enjoy doing accounts? We suspect the answer is no.
We believe people want to grow their business, and work on
their business not in their business. Being saddled with
admin could constrain your focus & growth.

We are your local accountants based in London Bridge and
Somerset House, and would love to have the opportunity to
meet with you to introduce ourselves and the services that
we offer. We have a number of FREE offers at present
including a:

* Free 1 hr consultation meeting to discuss any of your
financial requirements

and/or

* Free 3 month Trial using Xero, the leading on line
software - starting from just £100 per month. 

We can provide unlimited access to a dedicated accountant
that can help you with your financial administration. We are
a general practice but we specialise in contractors and
architects. Improve your financial operations with online
accounting using Xero and Quick Books Online.

Please contact Sema Ziler at info@elanand.co.uk or call 020
7403 1500 for more information so we can discuss your
requirements with a free and no obligation meeting at our
