Welcome to Green & Purple

We are a financial outsourcing agency, providing a scalable outsourced accounts department to your business.

We take care of your book-keeping, VAT, payroll and PAYE, administration and financial management, and most of all make sure you know how your business is doing through regular management accounts and forecasts. View our full wide range of services we offer.

We specialise in the creative and design industries (web design, fashion, branding, identity etc), but also have clients in other sectors from recruitment through to sugar. View our full client list.

We provide qualified accounting staff who act as your accounts department and finance function to whatever extent you need us. For most of our creative clients we deal with tax authorities, banks, suppliers, customers and other third parties, leaving the business free to concentrate on its core activities. We work onsite or remotely as required.

Our staff are all qualified and experienced accounts personnel, but we explain things clearly in English and make sure you have the information you need rather than a collection of standard reports.

Contact Pete on pc@greenandpurple.net to find out more.
