Very professional Works completed quickly
As a new start up business I've had enough to think about without worrying about getting my accounts set up correctly and making the most of available benefits. Lisa and Darren have worked with me from day one and together have made the process so easy. They've set me up on Xero and Receipt Bank and these are fantastic tools making book keeping very straight forward.
I moved to Darren from a previous accountant after meeting him at a Business for Breakfast business generation club in Stoke, I then had a 121 meeting with Darren where I learned more about tax and accountancy in 2 hours than I had in the past 12 years! I trust Darren implicitly. If you don't know what you are paying your accountant for or don't like your exiting accountant talk to Darren and he will do the rest including the uncomfortable communication with your existing accountant! Better quality and better value.
"A Bloody Good Accountant" These are the words I use when asked about Darren. I originally met Darren when at my previous company His accounting knowledge is excellent, and he adds a touch of personality to a business that is not known for it. Having good people to work with you when starting a business I believe is essential, and I highly recommend Darren and the team at Fortune Hart
