Client Reviews

  • review rating 5  I have used Sally as my personal accountant since 1994 and when in 2004 I decided to set up my own company there was only one person I could trust to help me with it and we 14 years later we are still using her company. If your looking for a sensible ,efficient and reliable service I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Direct Accounting.
