We’ll be getting a new website very soon but, while we’re putting that together, read on and

Great to meet you…

Thanks for dropping by to discover more about Blend.

We’d like to share with you how doing things the Blend way can boost not only your business but your lifestyle too.

And we hope that, after hearing more about us, you’ll let us have the opportunity to hear more about you too - your work and the things that matter to you most.

What brings you here?

You’re most likely to be an entrepreneur who has a hands-on role earning their main income through their own SME business. You’ll have worked hard to build your business up, have a small team of staff who you’re responsible for, and the buck stops with you.

You’ll be wanting help with making sound financial judgements and looking to avoid the pitfalls of any financial problems as your business grows.

It will go without saying that you work hard to make things work. It’s a fact that nearly half of the UK’s entrepreneurs work between 50 and 60 hours each week. But at what cost?

Many business owners end up missing out on celebrations and events with friends and family but, even more importantly, many miss out on the important daily enjoyment of spending time with and caring for their loved ones – missed bed and bath times, missed school sports days and parents’ evenings, missed meals and catch up chats … the list of times we can never get back goes on.

It’s not just a numbers game … how overworking can harm you and your business

Business owners need to keep a close eye on their company’s financial health to make the good stuff happen and bolster success … 

But not at the expense of their own physical and mental health and lifestyle.

Overworking in your business can cause poor decisions to be made, burnout, low productivity and mental and physical health problems. It’s one big reason why businesses go under, as well as having a massively negative effect on family and personal life.

Does any of this sound like you?


We’ve got the perfect Blend

We believe you can have it all.

Phil Tarbun, a commercially-minded accountant and tax advisor, set up his firm eight years ago while he was trying to bring up a young family and grow his business. He found that neither was happening in quite the way he wanted it to. So he took a look at how he could work smarter not harder and grow a successful and profitable business with fun and family at the core too.

Passionate about helping people like him to grow their business and support their family, Phil went ‘on a big journey’ and set up Blend Accountants to help make a difference to his clients’ lives and ensure that they enjoy their business, while adding value and helping them to grow and improve profit by focusing on impact and not just on top-line sales.

The team at Blend Accountants works with a small number of clients who share their values and are a ‘good fit’. They work with you to save time, reduce stress, and save money putting strategies and processes in place to ensure that your business will remain robust and work just as well without you, allowing you more time to spend in guilt-free enjoyment.

Blend has been instrumental in helping businesses owners achieve their dreams.
