Who we are

Case studies


The background

Akixi is a privately owned business specialising in call reporting and analytics software. Established in 2008, Akixi now employs over 25 people and has an annual turnover in excess of £6.5m.

Richard Place Dobson has supported Akixi from the very early stages in its journey, initially managing Akixi’s year-end accounts and corporation tax. However, as the company expanded so its requirements evolved, and with the increase in employee numbers we then began to manage the Akixi payroll. Then, as profits started to grow, we assisted with tax planning to help the business further. Akixi’s success and subsequent growth has continued year on year, to the point where an audit became a requirement of the organisation.

What Akixi think of Richard Place Dobson

Alison Clement, Akixi’s Finance Director, comments:

“Having held a number of roles in different businesses over the years I am used to dealing with auditors and accountants. I am delighted to say that having now completed a first-year audit for Akixi, the team at Richard Place Dobson has been brilliant. They took the time to understand our company, our specific business model, and to talk our language.”

“The audit was made super clean and easy. The key people from Richard Place Dobson were involved right from the outset and they were consistently approachable and understanding – always at the end of the phone, and I was never worried about asking them what might seem a simple question. My involvement was time well spent and I was only ever asked sensible questions, unlike experiences I’ve had with other businesses in the past!”

“Richard Place Dobson didn’t simply view the Akixi audit as a legal requirement. Their team approached the task with the objective of providing us with excellent value. Whilst they did a fantastic job with our audit, they have also been at the forefront of recognising when Akixi needed to re-organise. Their team has driven the processes and changes which are enabling us to maximise growth and optimise shareholder value, to continue the ongoing success of Akixi.”

“I would certainly recommend Richard Place Dobson for any growing business.”
