At Cherry Black we believe it’s people first
That makes us not particularly ‘traditional’ accountants. We think if you view people as whole people and not just workers or business owners, a more rounded, complete and powerful picture emerges. That’s when we can be of most use to you, when we know, see, and understand your whole picture. So … as revolutionary as it may sound, we think there’s more to it than money. Shocking right? Well, to us, not really. Numbers are important, and that’s where our key strength and service to you lies. But, we’re at the forefront of the industry, leading the charge in a new era of Accountants. We’ve even re-thought the category. We’re carving out a new space as Business Builders, not Businesses with ‘Solutions’ or ‘Services’ tacked on the end. We simply felt Business Builders was more authentic, and closer to what we actually love doing. And after all, it’s the kind of thing you typically come to us for. We’re excited.
Even though this is the Values section of our site, we don’t want to create a list of our values. That sounds very much like what other old school businesses would do. Instead, we’d rather share with you what we do, as a way of showing you how our values lead to different behaviours.
We’ll sit next you to, not opposite you
You won’t catch us watching the clock
There isn’t even one on the wall

Accounting isn’t a language
We don’t charge for phone calls
We simply charge a fair monthly fee
We’ll come to your place
We’ll probably be wearing jeans
You can call us by first name
We’ll even tell you now so you can prepare
Hi I’m Sanchia
And I’m Paul
We actually know each other
And work together
Two brains are better than one
That’s what we think anyway
When you call, we’ll answer
No “Please hold, I’ll just check to see if s/he’s available”
We’re involved in our community
It’s how we pay it forward
Drinking coffee together creates the space for great decision making.
If you think we’d get along, both in a business context and personally, then reach out, we’d love to hear from you.
