Our Background

Pennyhills® is a fast-growing, forward-thinking, tech-embracing accountancy practice based in London, UK.

We work with clients all over the UK from various sectors, mainly small to medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

(Interesting Fact: SMEs account for 99.9% of the UK business population)

We are a 100% digital practice and approach business like a lean tech start-up, unlike a traditional accounting firm. We use technology to automate much of the bookkeeping/ accounting process, so we have strong working knowledge and experience of:

  1. Double-entry bookkeeping and financial accounting
  2. Cloud-based Xero accounting systems
  3. Cloud-based IT systems for workflow and time management
  4. Programming/coding experience – connecting apps with open APIs and automating data processes

This is why if you don’t have a solid background in accounting and technology, sadly, it won’t be the right fit.

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS.

Special Note: We promise we are more fun to talk to and work with. If there are any new Netflix series you have watched and want to discuss, then bring them up during your interview. We’ll give you special brownie points.
