"After 17 years of our own complacency, and believing we were receiving a ‘fair’ service, we were recommended to read DB Chartered Accountants website – we did, and the first meeting date was set…
- David listened to what we were saying
- There was no judgement
- I wasn’t made to feel inexperienced or inept
- Our best interests were taken into consideration – we were asked our priorities and directions
- Business accountancy/management options were available – what do we prefer?

We made the positive change to DB Accountants and since; have received professional service complete with suggestions and advice tremendously valuable and supportive to the progress of our business.
Excellent financial reporting mechanisms and assessments present easy identifiers, and the year- end review meeting is a positive look at both historical and future performance, enabling us the opportunity to objectively look at our business options for improvement/sustainability.
Now our accountancy service is supreme!"
