Customer Testimonials

Paul has always provided clear, concise, financial information and advice. I feel completely comfortable that he has our best interests at heart and have recommended him to my contacts.


Paul Stafford has provided clear, sound advice which has enabled me to focus on the technical aspects of my business, safe in the knowledge that the accounts are being looked after. Quarterly and annual accounts are turned around very quickly, efficiently and at reasonable rates, all of which are vital to a small business. Paul has helped me negotiate the intricacies of VAT returns, corporation tax, dividends, PAYE and income tax. And because of his advice I’ve managed to avoid a number of financial pitfalls that other small business owners I know have fallen into. Paul has also provided ad-hoc advice as part of the service on the tax benefits (or otherwise) of issues like company cars, pension contributions and childcare benefits, which has been incredibly useful. I would have no hesitation in recommending APS Accounting.


You have been great to work with and one of the best and easiest chaps to deal with!


Paul has been a huge help with the transfer of our accounts records from Sage to Xero Cloud accounting.
