The Blu Sky way

There’s always a story behind your numbers. We make it our mission to care about the bigger picture. It’s how we help you succeed.

We’re here for you.

You can’t know everything about running a successful business. Trust our specialist team to take care of the financial side of things, with informed recommendations and advice at the right time.

We're passionate about tech.

We’re more like a tech company than a traditional accountancy firm. We stay clued up on the latest financial technology stacks to help you understand how to build efficiencies and scale your processes.

We look forward, not back.

We get to know your goals and help you achieve them. We set you up with the latest financial software so you have the insight needed to make business decisions that take you closer to your vision.

Going for investment? We’ve got you.

We do the important behind-the-scenes work that really matters when you go for investment. From pre-seed to Series A and beyond, we guide you through the process for added peace of mind.

  • Blu Sky are always really approachable, no matter what the problem is or how silly something might sound, they will always respond. We get monthly accounts, lots of tips and advice and a meeting every month to go through what we can improve within the business

  • The team at Blu Sky are amazing. Simply put. They look after all our accounting needs, and keep us on track with reporting, reconciling, submitting everything to HMRC etc. A great team spirit – they are like an extension of our team. We couldn’t be nearly as efficient without them!

  • Blu Sky are much more than our accountants. They’ve supported us to implement relevant software that saves us time. We’ve also been able to work with them on various strategic projects that have been inherent in helping us to make important decisions relating to our business growth.

  • Some practices only have yearly meetings which mean you have to go over and recount so much information. That’s not what it’s like with Blu Sky, we don’t ever have to waste time going over the past. It’s reassuring to know that they’re always so up to date and in the know.

  • From day one the Blu Sky team gave me answers and guided me through a whole range of ever-changing processes. Along with necessities, like tax, dividends and Companies House compliance. Knowing you have a team of experts behind you, especially at start-up stage, really gives you comfort.

  • Blu Sky helped us identify that the app developments we were working on would qualify for R&D tax relief. They collated all the relevant information, submitted the claim and answered all of our questions.

  • As we developed and grew, we needed Blu Sky to play a bigger part in helping us strategically plan and develop financially. They were able to do so by gaining a thorough understanding of our business model, with proactive involvement and forecasting.

  • The Blu Sky team helped me supply all the financial information needed for my most recent investment. They helped connect me with the right network of investors and 90% of my secured investment has been achieved through Blu Sky’s network, which I’m very grateful for.

  • They’ve also been proactive with suggestions which is great. The team really do understand that as a founder, I’m often focusing on different aspects of the business, so anything that they can help with is appreciated.

  • We wanted to delegate as much out as possible to free up our own time for higher-value activity. Blu Sky gets stuff done. The team manage our payroll, anything related to HMRC, Companies House, and personal tax, as well as advising on a more strategic level.

  • Blu Sky just really understand the nature of a growing business and the kind of growth projection support and financial advice SMEs specifically need.

  • We wanted accountants that really understood digital because we’re a company that’s focused on scaling by leveraging tech. Blu Sky is also a digital-first company that has a focus on integrating technologies to automate what they do wherever possible, so this really appealed to us.
