We’ve known Blu Sky since Newcastle Startup Week. 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

As your company grows, you may need additional advice, support and expertise that only an accountant like Blu Sky can give. In my case, I went down the DIY route when I started off as a Sole Trader in 2016 but then appointed Blu Sky as soon as we registered as a Limited Company in 2018.

Blu Sky are a natural fit – relaxed, professional, and fit naturally with the ethics of Executive Compass. Blu Sky certainly help with forecasting, budgeting and controlling costs.
Neil Capstick – Managing Director, Executive Compass Business Consultants
Blu Sky are taking accountancy into the 21st century through their proactive use of technology with clients, which makes my life a heck of a lot easier. Both Dave & Jon as well as the rest of the team are approachable, efficient and extremely down to earth. I recommend them highly!
Jamie Bogle – Co-Founder, Co-Navigate Ltd
Working with Blu Sky for us offers a simplified accounts process all in one place. Being quite young, technology is a big part of our day-to-day life. Blu Sky’s use of technology, like Receipt Bank – take a photo and it’s done, forgotten about – it really helped us focus on what we want to do.”
Matt Mahatme & Jordan Palmer – Co-founders, Lixir Ltd
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!
Sarah Thackray – Co-Founder, Beaconhouse Events
Blu Sky is a great accounting firm for startups because they understand the pain points of a young company. We are located in a different city, but because they are so responsive to email, any time day or night, they feel like part of the team!
Sam Grice – CEO, Guardian Angel
I love Blu Sky because they’re like a breath of fresh air. They’re so approachable, wherever you are you can have a good conversation with them. When it comes to providing our accounts, it feels like they’re part of the team. It’s a relationship, not a transactional thing – we see each other throughout the year.
Jayne Hart – Director, The HR Dept Newcastle
Blu Sky have been our accountants now for more than 4 years and been with us from early start-up to where we are now – and they have helped us every step of the way. Their unique informal approach matched with such friendly professionalism and an innovative mindset have made them the perfect partner to manage our finances and accounts as we are growing!
Trevor Norman – Co-founder at Peak Performance Partnership Ltd
We’ve been with Blu Sky right from the start. They’re real people! You feel like you’re speaking to people who actually understand you and your business, you’re not getting an ‘off the script’ answer. You can just phone up whenever you need something and know that you’ll have it sorted soon.
John Armstrong – Director, Custom Planet
We approached Blu Sky after a few years in business. We were looking to grow the business and wanted a straight talking, reliable and approachable accountancy firm. Blu Sky have exceeded our expectations – they just do what they say they are going to do. They keep us right on track and are at the end of the phone when we need help with something. They have quickly become and invaluable part of our team!
Paul Hart – Director, Cargo Creative
Blu Sky have been my accountants for about eight years now and they consistently provide a superb service. They are approachable, customer-centred and always on hand when I need advice and guidance. I trust them implicitly and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone – from sole trader to large corporate – on the lookout for a home-grown, northeast-based accountancy firm with a real international scope and outlook. I’ve watched Blu Sky build their business and they continue to impress me with both the depth of their knowledge and the scale of their ambition – they’re a great asset to our region and their profession, and from the top down it’s always a pleasure doing business with them. Who knew accountancy could be this cool, and still manage to be professional and reliable?

Absolutely fantastic team. Always available and willing to help. Very impressive team. Also, great to work with fun, ‘normal’ people rather than stuffy accountants!
