Every business wants to move in its own unique direction, and you, as the Managing Director, CEO or business owner, are in the driving seat.

From developing a long-term financial strategy, improving the insights from your accounts, and assisting strategic spending, to cutting waste and helping raise business capital, tailored financial support from Genus will drive your strategic vision forward.

SENIOR DATA ANALYST

Tony Downs

Fantastic support from Alicia from start to finish. This was a big thing for us changing the accounts system and it's been a breeze from the project planning, implementation and through to training and support.
Really impressed with Xero as a whole and really impressed with Shorts and Alicia.

Matthew Wheatcroft
Purpose Media (UK) Ltd

The Genus team have been really helpful; they’ve helped us to switch from our old accounts package onto Xero. That’s meant changing some of our working practices, so they’ve been coming and sitting alongside our bookkeepers and helping them to make those changes, devising new reports for us and new working practices, which has been great.

I would recommend Shorts as a forward-looking accountancy practice - I think they are very up to date, very modern in their approach and very approachable, friendly and very professional.

Sue Morton
Abbeydale Brewery

I would highly recommend the Short’s Project Team, they quickly understood our business and recommended the best fit to fulfil our needs.

Mark Hughes
Tutora

The Projects Team at Shorts helped us to improve our efficiency and effectiveness by advising us on the best cloud accounting packages to use in our business.

David Cross
Coda Studios

Having used the Genus team now for over 12 months they have provided real value and insights into the numbers and most importantly good narratives on the management accounts and what they actually mean. We now have a much better understanding of the business's performance and most importantly where improvements need to be made.

Charlie Buckley
Clovertec

We recently introduced a new accounting system. The advice and support received from Gary and his team has contributed significantly to the project being completed without any issues. There’s always going to be queries raised when the new system starts getting used and it’s good to know that ongoing support will be there from the Genus team.
