"Thank you for all the help and support you have given to my business. As a small business I have relied on your knowledge and ability to support us when we needed it and to take some of the stress of the accounting requirements away from us allowing us to concentrate on our daily business. You are a joy to deal with: thorough and efficient at year-end and ever so helpful and responsive during the year with the (sometimes bizarre) queries that I come up with. I value above all else an accountant who is always available when I need them. You have made every effort to understand our business and personality. As my business regularly comes into contact with new business startups, I don't know anyone more deserving of my recommendation especially when you have saved us more money than your services cost."
