MEET JOHN AND IDA
The Faces of Guida Accountancy
After 30 years of employment working with clients but to a strict ‘time is money’ policy, I wanted to make a change. I wanted to give my clients the time and level of service they deserve, without forsaking my health, happiness and life values – and without them fearing large bills at the end of it.
I set up Guida Accountancy to do just that, to transform the outdated stereotype of the grey man in the grey suit (apart from the grey hair that is).
I was lucky that Ida came into my life, she was the final piece of the jigsaw, the perfect companion for me (though she does sleep on the job a bit too much!) and we were ready to go.
I’m Ida, a 3 year old Labrador/Golden Retriever cross.
My role at Guida Accountancy is as Head of Mindfulness and Wellbeing. I am the calming influence who maintains my dad’s grounding, wellbeing and, at times, sanity.
I came into my dad’s life in May 2019, just before my second birthday.
I started my career as a trainee guide dog. Unfortunately, that didn’t quite work out for me, but my training has not gone to waste.
I HELP SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS
So, what can I do for you and your business?
I have also teamed up with qualified advisors to provide a range of Investment, Life Insurance and Pension advice as well as Will and Estate Planning. These services compliment my work as your accountant. They provide security for you and your family both now and in the future, which is important to both you and me.
Of course, as your accountant, I should also point out there can be significant cost and tax savings for you by setting up policies through your business.
