Sarah has been our accountant for many years now. Her advice has always been honest and straightforward. She never hesitates to answer the hard questions and does not give up until we understand the advice. Sarah appears up-to-date with the latest tax information and is focussed on ensuring we make decisions in the best interests of us and the business. She also assists me with the accounts for my little online business and has been a wealth of knowledge. I have over the years highly recommended Sarah to anyone who asks and will continue to do so.
