“Ella’s Kitchen have worked with 2020 since our pre-launch phase and their advice has been invaluable right from the first review and critique of our initial business plan (which effected some significant changes), through performing company secretarial services to real added value Finance Director stuff. Stephen Kelly’s advice and calm efficiency helped us complete a minority share sale and his counsel and presence at our Board Meetings has helped us grow at a phenomenal rate each year since launch, whilst managing our cash, stock holding and tax planning to maximise our opportunities. They are an excellent partner for growing companies, helping define strategy and understanding operational needs and resources.”
Paul Lindley, Founder of Ella’s Kitchen
“Streetcar first started using 2020 within a few months of our incorporation. Stephen Kelly and his team have since carried out all of our key finance functions, including Management Accounts, Statutory Accounts, Payroll, VAT returns, Corporation Tax and Company Secretarial, as well as providing a “virtual FD” service which gave us advice on key areas of our finance strategy. Across all of these disciplines, 2020 have proven to be utterly reliable, providing accurate output within the required timescales, even when the deadlines were extremely tight. We recently completed a major investment from a Private Equity company. Through this period, our demands for increasingly sizeable pieces of work within shorter and shorter timescales were met by 2020, and they were instrumental in us successfully completing the investment. The “virtual FD” service offered by 2020 has proven extremely useful to Streetcar – during our growth phase when we couldn’t afford our own Finance Director, having access to an experienced finance professional was invaluable, and Stephen Kelly’s carefully measured advice has frequently given us the direction we needed. Streetcar has today grown to the point where we need, and can afford to bring our finance function in house, however I would strongly recommend 2020’s services to any growing company looking to outsource their finance activities. “
Andrew Valentine, Co-Founder of Streetcar.
“Since the inception of VHC Partners LLP in 2002, 2020 has provided us with excellent service. This ranged from actual book keeping to payroll to preparation of the audit files for our annual audits. As an FSA regulated entity, timing and accuracy were of course extremely important and Stephen and his team did an excellent job at this.”
Hans van Hoof, Founder VHC Partners LLP.
“Politics International appointed 2020 as our accountants in 2005 and we have been very pleased with the quality of service 2020 has provided us. They are efficient, responsive to our requirements and understand our business.
Stephen Kelly was our financial adviser during the sale of our company in 2008. We benefited greatly from his advice during the process and he was effective during the face-to-face negotiations with the buyer. His support helped us to realise a good result. 2020 continue as our accountants since the sale, testament to the confidence our parent company also has in them.”
Amanda Cunningham, Director of Politics International
“I have worked with 2020 for almost eight years now and have never been let down at all during that period. The advice and support they’ve given in all areas has been first class; they’re flexible, adaptable and really understand our business which means we can rely on them to guide us in ways that have brought real and measurable benefits. They’re viewed very much as part of our team and I hope this continues for a long time.”
Steven Ivil, Founder Incommunication uk
“Our Company is US based and became a small multinational company when we acquired a UK company in 2006. 2020 CA Limited has provided us with accounting, tax and payroll services since our acquisition. The work and advice 2020 CA Limited has provided has always been sound, timely and cost effective. We are quite pleased with 2020 and anticipate continuing our relationship well into the future.”

"Since founding Bishopsgate, we have relied on 2020 to provide a virtual finance function for us. Through Bookkeeping, management accounts, payroll, tax and annual accounts they have proved utterly reliable. They have been a key support to our Finance Director and I believe that the efficient and cost-effective service they provide has been a real facilitator of our growth as a company."
Mike Hampson, Founder and CEO, Bishopsgate Financial
