How we work | Alchemy accountants

But your finances can

From bookkeeping to business advice, our accounting services help to eliminate the feelings of uncertainty that can keep you awake at night.

We help you build unshakeable confidence

at each stage of your creative journey


Income: Sub £30k

Team: 1 person

You’re a bonafide grafter. Balancing a side-hustle alongside employment, dreaming of the day you can fully replace the income from your current job. You’re conscious about your side income and how to declare it in the right way. You want the inside scoop on how to price your work to earn enough for independence. We’ve got you covered.

To the side-hustle zone



£30k to £150k

Team: 1 director

It is seriously good to be your own boss. But you’re realising it’s also a big time investment. Income is stable but you’d love to work less hours and earn more money. Now you’re doing your own thing you’d rather not have to work for anyone else again, so you have a strong desire to not cock up the finances. We hear you loud and clear.

Startup agency


£150k to £1m

Team: 1 - 2 directors. 1 - 5 employees

For small agencies success is all about security and predictability. Your costs are changing now you’re bringing a team on board, and bookkeeping is becoming more of a headache. You have ambitions to grow your profits, but revenue is still concentrated around a small number of clients and you need to systemise so you’re not the bottleneck. Let’s look at how.

Growing agency

Income: £1m+

Team: 1 - 2 directors. 5 + employees

You’re all about sustainability of growth. You’re fully transitioning out of client work, with a senior team in place to manage daily operations. Now you want complete oversight of the business - controlling costs, measuring profitability by project, managing cash flow. Ultimately maximising profits so you (and your team) can enjoy the life they want. Let’s go!
