We were established in August 2008 and after working in both practice and industry for over 20 years, felt it was time to go it alone.
At ABAS wanted to provide a service to our clients that was like no other. We wanted it to be a service that was tailored to our clients' needs and wants rather than what was considered the norm. Steve McKenzie has been working for city centre firms since 1986 and then when he moved into industry he saw another side to the finance sector.
Looking at it from the client's perspective, he saw what businesses needed on a day to day basis and the challenges that faced them, both operationally and financially.
Our current portfolio is made up of clients of all shapes and sizes and ranges from local Sole Traders to international Limited Companies. Our biggest attribute is that we work "with" our clients in order to get them the service they desire.
In addition to this, we try and keep our costs down as much as we can so that what develops is a long-term business partnership rather than an opportunity to make a quick buck. We are happy to say that our first client from 2008, a Balamory screenwriter, is still with us nearly 10 years later and that with a client portfolio in excess of 80 individuals and businesses, we must be doing something right.
We will do as little or as much work as our client needs and will do whatever is takes to help them "make sense of the numbers"
