Galloways Accounting

As the fastest growing and largest accountancy firm in Sussex, we have over 200 people looking after thousands of businesses and individuals in multiple offices across the county. You’re in great hands.

We provide all the services that you would expect from a firm of our size, and all are delivered with your needs at the centre of our thinking. Happy people working for the interests of happy clients. That sounds good to us.

We help clients manage their financial and compliance matters, as well as trying to help them make or save money. We embrace the digital world through our cloud accounting capabilities, but equally recognise the importance of face to face and empathetic advice. Robots may take over the world one day, but when a client is worried about a tax bill or a business problem a friendly, familiar and trusted face makes all the difference.

Accountants like talking about what they do (don’t we all?), but every client story starts with their specific problem or requirement that needs addressing.

That’s why the most important thing that we do is listen…..

Index Property Information – South East

We at Index pride ourselves on being a different type of search provider. We offer regional expertise on a national scale.

As owners of our business, we understand and believe passionately in providing the sort of support and service that you as busy conveyancers deserve but are so often denied.

It is true that we do offer market leading technology solutions, such as;

– Electronic client onboarding (integrated with your choice of CMS)

– Remote ID verification / KYC and Source of Funds

– Electronic signatures

– Index Insure

– Integration with many of the leading CMS providers

– Digital AP1 submissions through full integration with Land Registry

– SDLT submission through integration with HMRC

………however, at no point do we seek to hide behind these solutions as being the answer to everything!

You will find our friendly team of experienced searchers available by phone or email, 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and you will be able to speak with someone knowledgeable and capable of dealing with your query, without being placed in a queue or dealt with by a call centre.

Often, where there are additional parcels or the transaction is not straightforward, trying to order the correct searches for your client through any ordering platform (even ours) can be confusing and create additional risk. Our team are here to help place orders and to help provide accurate quotes, along with practical, cost-effective advice for you and your clients.

This can be particularly helpful where commercial portfolios and new build developments are the order of business, and we are happy to work with you on a per instance basis to provide the best solutions to help you win the business and deliver to time and cost.

On a more practical level, during the busiest and most difficult of recent times, our relationships with Local Authorities also enabled us to help our clients with getting searches back well in advance of when the initial council return dates were estimated for. If you have an urgent scenario, we will actively get on the phone to do our best to be able to assist.

Our clients also very much appreciate that we provide assistance with obtaining documents for them, such as S106 agreements, Planning Agreements, Building Control Certificates, TPOs and more.

It really is possible to have your cake AND eat it!
