I have been working with Diane for over 5 years now. She is very organised and always available for whatever last minute help I need regarding my accounts. She is very professional and organised. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Diane is very committed to helping us improve our financial systems. What has impressed me the most has been the number of really great ideas we have been able to implement straight away that have had a tangible impact on our income and growth potential. Particularly, I have found her friendly and approachable professionalism really helpful in working together - our meetings are always ultra-productive and energising.

During my contact with Diane she has been proactive in communicating issues and has also been prepared to take time to explain technical aspects of the results. Most striking is Diane's willingness to take ownership of a project and see it through even if this means working late or weekends. I have been very impressed by her professional and helpful attitude in our dealings and have no hesitation in recommending her as an excellent accountant.

Life Assurance Actuary

As a small limited company in the creative industries we needed an accountant who understood where we were coming from. We asked Didi to do our tax returns, give us tax advice, do our payroll and resolve an ongoing issue with HMRC. I’m so glad we did - she is very friendly and easy to get on with, she responds quickly, she explains things well, she goes above and beyond what is expected of her. We are more confident that we are dealing with our finances in a way that is compliant and appropriate for our business and we are saving money due to good advice on tax and expenses. I highly recommend her.

What a pleasant surprise to find an accountant who shares my ethical standards. I always support vegan businesses where available, and I'm pleased to report that I find Diane to be efficient, responsive and completely tuned in to current technology and business practices. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Didi is a joy to work with. She is patient and kind with someone who is disorganised and totally lost when it comes to accounts! She helped me submit my self assessment but I now continue to work with her throughout the year as her service was so great. I can rely on her to respond to my queries quickly and to do work for me efficiently with regular updates.

Our Ethical Policy

We will always do what we can (within the law) to help you pay the least amount of tax. As a way to give something back, we kindly request (where possible) that you donate some of these savings to a good cause.

We will specify the amount of tax you have saved in comparison to being an employee. It is without doubt that some of these savings are related to the risk you take from having your own business, as well as additional expenses you incur such as accountancy fees, and lack of holiday pay etc, so we don't expect you to donate all the savings you make!
