About The Accountants Millionaires' Club


Probably the most frustrating feeling in the world is working incredibly long stressful hours, living hand to mouth with your cash flow and not getting the income you deserve out of your practice. You didn’t enter the profession to be a glorified bean counter – you became an accountant to help your clients achieve their business and personal goals. Scroll down to see whether The Accountants Millionaires’ Club helps accountants like you…

Number of club members

Number of resources in membership site

Our club members, typically…

Own accountancy firms with 1-2 owners

&

Are looking to grow (but not always to £1m+)

Have a turnover between £50k and £1.2m

Have staff (whether outsourced or permanent)

Are happy to help out other members

Z

Want to work with a coach who specialises in helping accountancy firms grow

… and are normally one of these 4 types of people:

“Get me there quickly”

You are only happy when your practice is growing and you are winning clients. But you need a sounding board, and a voice of reason to stop you being your own worst enemy, help you sort out your processes, give you an occasional confidence booster and stop you from making too many mistakes along the way.

“I’m not a normal practice owner”

You are either not an accountant or have never worked in a small accountancy firm before you bought or started it. You want to shortcut your journey to grow your practice by learning from the most innovative and progressive cloud-based accountants. But you still want to build your practice your way.

“I’m building something to (eventually) sell”

You have been running your practice for a while, and are looking to kick start your firm’s growth, but also fall in love with running your practice again. You want and need support to reduce your working hours and stress levels. You are happy with steady, but sustainable growth.

“I need the right type of clients”

Your practice and bank balance would be much healthier if you could just win the right type of clients, who would pay what your firm is really worth. Once you have fixed your firm’s pricing and marketing woes, there will be no stopping you. You like learning from advisors who are experts and really understand accountants.

The amount of resources, assistance and advice has been nothing short of mind-blowing

Within a month of joining the club we have:

  • Attracted a client who have committed to fee just shy of £500 per month that we would have historically charged £200 per month
  • Have proposals out there that would more than double our clients paying over £300 per month including one where; subject to acceptance, would be in excess of £1,000 per month

After 6 months in the club I was able to stop worrying about cash flow.

When I first joined the club I was living hand to mouth with my cash flow, often having to dip in the money I had put aside to pay my VAT and corporation tax bill. 

I’ve learnt to ask for a price which is in line with the value our firm brings to our clients. In fact, my time in the ‘member spotlight’, was probably worth £50-100k of extra turnover within 12 months of the conversation.

After 6 months in the club I was able to stop worrying about cash flow as I now normally have 30-90 days of cash in the bank on top of the money I need to pay my VAT and corporation tax squirrelled away safely.

Reducing your resourcing headaches and salary bill by (if you want to) implementing outsourcing or offshoring


Getting all your team working for you not against you, and exiting underperforming or disruptive team members.

Pricing

Having the confidence to ask for and get the fee levels your firm deserves without any push back from clients or prospects.


Doing a wide-scale fee increase for your client base to radically increase your cashflow and profit margin.


Putting more cash in your bank and eliminating your WIP by moving your clients onto fixed fee pricing paid by direct debits in monthly instalments.


Revolutionising your firm’s profit margin by introducing pricing packages as well as fixed fees for bookkeeping.

Within a month of membership I had covered my membership fees several times over

I have only been a member of The Accountants Millionaires’ Club for about a month, but in that time I have already been helped to increase my fees and sort out my client base which will make us more profitable and also cover my membership fees several times over, and that's in the first month.  Working with my coach I have been given the confidence to take action and believe more in what I do.

Using his coaching Ashley was able to make me feel confident about what I should actually be charging my clients and this has given me a boost to have these difficult conversations with some of my clients

The club helped our team members go out and win work which helped us grow our accounts team income by £15k a month over the last 12 months 

Our firm has a specialist tax team. As a result of the work done within the club, all of the senior members of our tax team now have the confidence to go out and find, quote and invoice their own work. They are also now referring work to the accounts team because they have the confidence that we will quote and deliver it properly.
