Testimonials

I recently discovered that I have been recording my accounts the wrong way. I would suggest anyone starting new business to get accountant advice on doing your books as early as possible to avoid having to spend hours re-do the accounts and books.

A big thank you to Michelle, the accountant at Concise Accountancy, she helped to create a bookkeeping system using excel spreadsheet and also sorted out my records.
