The New Way to success. advance. progress.
Limelight is a friendly, family-run business. We concentrate on sole traders and small businesses, providing the quality and depth of support you're unlikely to find at larger, impersonal firms.
Who We Are
Limelight was started in 1993 by Catherine and Phil Steadman, to provide accountancy services to smaller businesses.
Until recently most mainstream accountancy firms were only interested in larger audit clients. We saw there was a niche for accountants specialising in small owner-managed businesses – sole traders, partnerships or small limited companies.
Building up our own firm has given us a practical insight of what it’s like to start and run a small business. We know what you’re going through, as we’ve experienced it ourselves.
Free first meeting
If you’re thinking of starting a business or changing your accountants, we offer a no obligation, no fee first meeting to discuss your needs. It’s best to allow about one and a half hours.
Affordable and practical
Budgets are often tight, so we can offer fixed fee packages for very small businesses, and charge a very competitive hourly rate for one-off requests and work which varies.
Keeping in touch
We appreciate you already have plenty to think about, but there are times when a reminder or an update can be very helpful. That’s why each month our regular clients receive a tailored letter updating them with the specific information they need to know; for example, when it’s time for your end of year tax return or VAT return.
We also produce a monthly Limelight newsletter covering issues important to small businesses, such as the latest tax and VAT news.
We have close contacts with a local Independent Financial Adviser, who is affiliated to one of the largest independent adviser groups and offers expert, professional financial advice on all subjects, with particular emphasis on pensions.
