Customer Testimonials

It is a pleasure working with Steve as he is dedicated and always ready to go beyond his remit in order to ensure that the work gets done properly. I would recommend Steve any time and believe that we will have a long business relationship going forward.


Steve provides an excellent bookkeeping service for small/medium sized owner managed businesses. I have always found his work to be of an excellent standard and I have no hesitation in recommending his company.


My review is based on some initial advice I received from this company. On posting my query, I was contacted promptly, given estimated costs which I felt were reasonable and compared favourable with another quote, and I was offered an appointment. The location was convenient for me and the fact that appointments were offered out of working hours was a bonus. I was given some advice on and analysis of my potential taxation liabilities and all delivered very promptly. I would certainly recommend this company from my experience in this instance and intend to go back to it when it comes to actually completion a tax return.


As Steve’s Arizona client, I can tell you that we would likely not be doing business in the UK if he were not there to guide us every step of the way. The attitude that his job is whatever his clients need him to do is something that Steve takes to heart, and he has the energy and experience to back it up. Steve has been there to help us with everything from payroll, to cutting operating expenses, to finding new staff. Even half a world away, we know that we can pick up the phone or send an email at all hours of the day or night, and Steve will have an answer for us. Steve is a friend and a partner that we look forward to growing with for years to come.


Very friendly and approachable bookkeeping service. Top notch knowledge of tax and all aspects of the financial sector. All emails, texts, & phone calls answered almost immediately. Absolutely bang on value for money.


The bookkeeping service on the retainer scheme has been value for money and has reduced my Accountancy fees and helped me move forward. I would recommend this service.


Steve has been so efficient and accommodating throughout my whole tax return. He is extremely personable and professional and bent over backwards to explain the whole process to me. I would highly recommend him to anyone sole trader or self employed business! I will be using Steve in the future! Thanks again!
