AIMS do what you expect an accountant to do and
we do it well
Tax, Accounting and Bookkeeping is time consuming and there are so many rules and regulations even us accountants despair at times. But as a business owner you can’t get away from these and they are simply tasks that need to be done and done well. The upside is I am a Southampton based accountant who can look after your Southampton business accounts and am professionally qualified to offer all sorts of accounting and tax advice for your Southampton Business.
Whilst I am based in Southampton I also cover the areas of Botely, Portsmouth, Fareham and Winchester and can assist with all your accounts and tax requirements, leaving you to concentrate on running and developing your business.
I don’t charge by the hour and all fees are agreed in advance so you know exactly what you’re paying for. And because I am local to you I will come to you for a free no obligation meeting - you are under no obligation to take it further.
A Chartered Accountant with extensive practical experience, I have a high degree of commercial expertise and an innovative style.
I bring these to bear to identify opportunities and contribute to improvements in the business performance for my clients, while attending to all their accounting needs.
I am a certified pro-advisor for both Quickbooks Online and XERO, as well as being fully conversant with SAGE online. With these tools at my fingertips, I am prepared for HMRC's initiative "Making Tax Digital" due to be implemented by April 2018.

“Wanted to reduce outgoings on a small turnover. Keith was able to balance fee income with the amount of work required for a small turnover business with limited transactions. Very much so.”
Chris Gough - GSE 2000 Ltd
“Start Up of own business. Keith Powers is the Company Accountant for the company I worked for as Managing Director prior to my decision to start up my own business. I felt comfortable that Keith could help to steer me through the requirements to set the company up including the compliance with HMRC, Companies House etc, and provide financial management guidance for the company. The decision has been a good one as Keith has delivered and supported. Keith understood my needs, explain the financial matters in a way that I can understand and is available to provide ongoing support. The company is a little less than 12 months old at this time. I had worked with him previously. He has provided the service which I needed and importantly to the level of quality I expected.”
Andy Smith - AJS Consulting and Management Ltd
“Keith has been Halarose's accountant for over 12 years, and I value him highly. He makes us feel like we’re his only customer, particularly with how well he knows our business. As his customer, I can pick up the phone to him whenever I like and ask him even the most obscure questions about tax and accountancy. On the rare occasion that he doesn't know the answer, he is able to use the network and resources of AIMS to give me the best possible advice. Not only does he have his finger on the pulse of all the latest tax, legal, and technical aspects of accountancy, he is also someone whose judgement I have great trust and confidence in. Finally, but by no means least, he insists on coming to visit us at least once a year to ensure that we are working well together and making the most of his services. Surely that's a rare thing in this age of accountants that tend to charge by the minute!”
