Chris Reichhelm - Deep Tech Leaders

"I’ve spent my career in executive search and I’ve run my own search firm for the past 11-years.

Financial challenges within an executive search business are not unlike the challenges of other small businesses. Cashflow, budgeting, investment, profit extraction, tax – each of these issues has led to a few sleepless nights over the years.

I started working with Jez and his team in 2016. Almost immediately, my weeks grew less stressful. What I found in Jez was a clear thinking, level-headed individual who could help me take better financial decisions. He knew the questions to ask and importantly, he had good answers.

We’ve worked together for more than 7-years now. We have a quarterly planning process, which helps with budgeting and investment decisions. Our tax and cashflow run pretty much like clockwork. Yes, there are challenges with any business. But the amount of time I spend worrying about finance is significantly reduced thanks to Jez and his team. This means I can focus on what clients want me to focus on – making them more successful."

Expertise in Complex Tax Laws:

Navigating the intricacies of tax law can be challenging and as an accountant specialising in the recruitment industry, I stay up to date with the latest updates and amendments to tax regulations.

By understanding these changes, I can provide informed recommendations that align with your personal circumstances, ensuring compliance and helping you make the most of available tax benefits. My expertise can guide you through these complexities to keep your tax affairs in order.

Ideal for Self-Employed Professionals:

If you are a self-employed recruitment executive, you face a unique set of tax considerations. From home office deductions to mileage expenses and specialist equipment costs, there are numerous tax advantages available to you.

By enlisting the services of a qualified accountant, you gain access to expert guidance on navigating the often intricate world of tax write-offs. My specialised knowledge of the Executive Search industry can help maximise your tax savings and potentially save you a significant amount of money. The benefits outweigh the fee by far.

Maths Isn't Your Cup of Tea:

Let's face it, tax matters involve numbers and calculations. If you'd rather undergo a root canal than deal with complex mathematics or if you find managing your finances personally overwhelming, speaking to an accountant who specialises in your field is a wise decision.

I possess a natural affinity for numbers, equipped with the expertise and experience to handle tax forms accurately and efficiently. By entrusting your tax obligations to a professional like me, who genuinely enjoys working with numbers, you can ensure greater accuracy and peace of mind.

Managing Multiple Income Streams:

If you have multiple sources of income, such as long-term employment alongside a side business, your tax situation can become considerably more complex. I can help you identify potential tax savings that you may not be aware of. By leveraging my knowledge and experience, you can optimise your tax position across various income streams, ensuring you capitalise on available opportunities while complying with tax regulations.

Time-Saving Efficiency:

One of the most significant advantages of hiring an accountant is the time and accuracy I can offer. Preparing your own taxes can be a time-consuming task. By entrusting your taxes to a professional, you save precious time that can be better spent on your executive recruitment practice.

Additionally, I possess comprehensive knowledge of tax laws and savings opportunities, making me an ideal advisor throughout the year, not just during tax season. Whether you have questions about tax incentives for electric vehicles, debt management, or other financial matters, I can serve as a trusted financial advisor, providing valuable guidance beyond tax compliance.

Investing in the services of an accountant tailored to your needs is a prudent choice, delivering long-term financial benefits and peace of mind.

Does that sound good?


Financial challenges within an executive search business are not unlike the challenges of other small businesses.  Cashflow, budgeting, investment, profit extraction, tax – each of these issues can lead to a few sleepless nights. By having a good accountant that you can rely on, these worries can become a thing of the past. 

The size of your business can make you think that you can handle the financial challenges. But what you can soon come to learn is that it’s not about the size of the business – it’s the decisions you have to make.  “Should I really be making these hires now?  How can I even out our cashflow?  What is the most tax efficient way to pay myself?”  Every small business owner needs to have answers to these and having a soundboard in your accountant can be a life-saver.

Ideally, you should have a quarterly planning process, which helps with budgeting and investment decisions.  This means tax and cashflow should run pretty much like clockwork.  Yes, there are challenges with any business.  But the amount of time you spend worrying about finance will be significantly reduced thanks to having these meetings and putting necessary plans in place.  This means you can focus on what clients want you to focus on – making them more successful.
