Customer Testimonials

In 1999 we started a small consulting/training business and we were looking for an accounting firm to handle the tax returns for the business and owners. We visited a range of accountants/accounting services in our area. Most were stuffy and expensive for what we considered to be our simple needs. When we went to BJ Sexton, we were pleasantly surprised. Barry was a friendly Irishman who was much more reasonably priced than his competitors. We have been happy with their services and prices for the past 14 years. The people in the office are friendly and helpful. They have always given us useful advice/suggestions and they have responded quickly to any questions we have. They have never made us feel unwelcome as customers, just because we're a small business. Unless it's the end of the world, we have no intention of changing accounting firm.

I approached BJ Sexton & Co a few years ago when let down by a previous Accountant. Trust was easily built as this team are professional, helpful and approachable - confidence was quickly achieved that my company's best interests are met. Their advice is thoroughly researched and as a small business, I do not have the time or resource to carry out this level of depth with BJ Sexton & Co I have no sleepless nights worrying about Tax or Regulatory issues to be faced. I am confident that my businesses being taken care of in both a thorough and timely manner. I heartily recommend their services to any company small or large.

Eastway Electrical Contractors have been dealing with BJ Sexton & Co since 2006. I would definitely recommend BJ Sexton & Co, not only because of their professional acumen but also for them being very friendly and responsive to any queries I have. I am always sure that whenever I make a call to them, it is answered quickly and my question is answered promptly. I hope our relationship will continue for many years to come.

I moved to BJ Sexton & Co seven years ago, when my business expanded. I was self-employed optician back then, and with my accountants valuable partnership, I am now a proud owner of a company that operates two branches. BJ Sexton & Co has taken over my entire finance department, from bookkeeping to financial advice and tax planning. They also helped me with various issues a small business can face, including raising finance and making financially viable employment decisions. I know that my accounts are in good hands and I can concentrate on developing and growing my business.

Creative people are notoriously bad at keeping an eye on the figures and I find it comforting to be able to call on someone who can professionally manage the nitty-gritty of company accounts. The team at BJ Sexton and Co are fantastically helpful with tax returns and other important matters relating to my business, which leaves me to get on with what I do best!
