"Kessels & Associates Ltd (trading as Kessels Ecology) has been a very satisfied client of DB Chartered Accountants for several years now.

We appreciate the professional yet approachable manner of David, Pam and the rest of the team.

They have a genuine interest in our business – a small but busy environmental science service consultancy - and are always on hand to assist. We value being able to regularly meet with David and to assess how the business is tracking one on one, with the opportunity to discuss future plans and options. David is also able to provide advice on a broad range of business development and strategy matters, which we’ve greatly valued.

We can’t recommend David and his team highly enough."
