Steve Tasker and Your Finance Director is proud to have been serving customers across Gloucestershire and beyond for many years. Please see below for some examples of what a number of our happy clients have said about working with us…
Lime Repair Ltd
Steve has been our accountant for many years and has made a substantial difference to our business.
Our previous accountants were competent, but only did the end of year Corporation Tax so for most of the year we were without support.
We were working very hard but operating blindly - we didn't know what was happening financially from month to month. Steve has helped us to get a clear overview of our business so that we know what to expect and can plan for the future.
Steve visits when we need him and is always on the end of the phone or email if we have any queries between visits. This interface is very useful and, by knowing exactly what information he needs, we have been able to improve the way in which our accounts are kept so that we can analyse work more easily. He has also taken on additional tasks such as CITB registration.

The Marriage People
Steve has been brilliant through every single interaction that we have had.
He is such a down to earth kind of guy and explains everything in a way that it makes sense to a 5 year old (me).
He is incredibly punctual and reliable and helps you keep a smile when the going gets tough.
A true team player who I will have in my team for many years to come.
Thank you Steve!
Bristol Business Network
Steve recently hosted a business seminar where he talked about the figures that make a business work.
What is your plan? - not just a business plan, a life plan; how well does your business help achieve this plan?; what is your pricing going to be based on? The time that you are going to work (no one can work 365 days a year...); where does a balance sheet fit in?; what is a P&L? - All questions that you need to ask and more importantly need the answers for.
That is where Steve comes in and I would recommend that if you do have these questions (and any other finance/accounting ones), then contact Steve!
Director, Business Network South West
Ever since the company was established in 2007, I had followed a traditional accounting model, which meant relying on internal figures for the day-to-day running of the business, and only communicating with the accountants infrequently (usually annually) to ensure that all necessary official paperwork was completed.
It's now approximately 6 months since I made the decision to cease working with the accountancy firm that I'd used for over 7 years, and to move our business to 'Your Finance Director'. This was a significant decision, and a move to a new relationship and a different way of working.
I would like to thank you for the time and effort that you invested in getting to know me (as a Business Owner) and to learn about my company and my team. I enjoy our regular meetings, and the quarterly updated accounts mean that I have much closer control of the company finances. I have found that (as Company Director) I now have a greater clarity and understanding of the current figures, which provides greater confidence when planning and making decisions for the future success and growth of my business.
Thank you for your help so far Steve. I shall be happy to promote 'Your Finance Director' whenever possible, and I am very much looking forward to working with you in the future.
I have known Steve now for more than 2 years and am impressed that he really wants to make a difference to his clients and go that extra mile.
As a fully qualified accountant, and with his work ethics, I have referred many companies to Steve over the years, and every one of them has been more than happy with the results.
Looking for an accountant with a difference? Then Steve is your man!

Smeed & Associates
My gratitude to Steve Tasker, and my appreciation of his calm professionalism, cannot be underestimated.
Steve has helped me with my first tax return, which I have been dreading.
He talked me through what was required, and gave me the assurance I needed. He even juggled his diary to accommodate my work commitments.
On top of this, Steve is a capable and highly qualified chartered accountant.
I would not hesitate in recommending Steve Tasker, and fully intend to employ him for future accountancy work.

Peter Joannidi, ACMA
Group Financial Controller
Blackgate Design Ltd
I have recently setup a new business venture and needed to shut down my old business which is something I knew very little about and wasn’t sure how best to proceed.
You have been a fantastic source of support and guidance through this and have given me excellent advice and knowledge of how best to proceed.
You have put a great deal of time and effort into helping me not just in beginning a new business but over a tough year in my previous company, and whenever I need a question answered about financial aspects of my business you are always happy to help as no problem is to big or to small, you constantly go the extra mile.
I look forward to a long working relationship as my new business moves forward and once again have no problem with recommending you to anyone in need of a financial professional such as yourself.
Thank you for all of hard work.
I would like thank Steve for the work he has produced for me. I needed some help with a Business Plan & Cash Flow projections.
Steve put everything across in a language that I understood and made the whole thing a painless journey. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve to any of my clients or friends.
