About telic

This is our story.

We’d love to hear yours.

Telic was born out of specialist tax and accounting expertise under the name of Godley & Co.  Telic’s mission is to take the firm into a new era with some fresh thinking whilst building off solid and long-term foundations. 

Innovation and a sense of purpose must be at the heart of our business for us to be able to serve our clients’ best interests and to motivate our team.

Telic doesn’t want to stand still in truth, we never have.

We are nothing without a great team

Our team matters. Whilst many businesses talk about a family feel, we are to all intents and purposes, family. Some of our members have been with us since the start. They’ve grown and become experienced with us.

It comes as no surprise then, that in setting sail on a new path, we have also worked with the team to create our team charter. After all, it’s the little things that give us energy and direction.

“I talk to my team regularly about collaborative learning both technical and non-technical. If we share and learn, we can make those marginal gains which continue to drive us forward.”

Yogesh Patel, Director

Team Charter

Values are at the heart of any successful business.  They drive success and unite teams.  Anyone can talk about values, but we’ve ensured that they were developed by our team for them specifically.

Our Values

We are a team

We are nothing without a great team.

We thrive and enjoy what we do and have full trust in one another. It ensures that the business succeeds as we grow together and delivers the best in client service. 

Everyone matters

We all matter, it goes without saying really.

Our clients.  Our team.  Everyone.

We believe it’s not what you are but who you are and the value you bring to the table every day.  Every client has input from the wider team, it brings the best solutions and a variety of perspectives

We share to grow

We share and pass on knowledge. 

We rotate on the same wheel which results in collaborative learning and constant energy in everything we do.  Our service to our clients is totally consistent and joined up, ensuring comprehensive and robust solutions.

We show up

We show up and bring our best selves.

We are passionate and hard-working and keen to constantly improve.

This means we are always looking for the wins.  We focus our efforts and are 100% committed to our clients’ best interests 

Never stand still

We never stand still, our progress is a journey of small wins, which keep us moving forward together.

We look for constant improvements (no matter how small) so that the service to our clients evolves and grows.

Make a positive impact

We want to make a positive impact on the future.

It’s the little things that we do that can make a big difference every day.  We want our clients to be glad that they chose us.  In doing so, they’re making a small positive investment themselves.  And that feels good to us all.

Why should values matter to our clients?

The name telic says it all really. Derived from the term “Autotelic” it means that everything we do, no matter how small, gives us pleasure and helps us to work effortlessly. The work just flows…

This is how we see our values and our charter.

If our team is happy and fulfilled, they are more productive and more focused on our clients’ business. And that’s a happy place for us all. More focused, more detailed, more demanding of ourselves can only mean one thing – better service for our clients.

Our quest to be a little bit better

In 2022 we were proud to become an accredited B Corp business and are also members of the B1G1 organization that donates to charities around the world.  B1G1’s idea is a bit like ours, they too ask themselves: 

“What if every business could make a difference in their own way, just by doing what they normally do?”

We start small but think big.  
This makes us better.  
We hope you agree.

Join the Team

We hope that you have a flavour of who we are and what we believe in as a firm. We have some exciting plans and aspirations for the future and we want our team to be an important part of that. 

If you feel inspired by our journey and would like to know more about joining our team, we’d be delighted to hear from you
