I would highly recommend Steven at Brearley & Co Accountants. On Steven’s advice we moved to Quickbooks and it was a brilliant decision. He has helped to streamline our accounting so that it now runs much more efficiently. Nothing is ever too much trouble, even if the question is a rather minor one. He is always at the end of the phone or email if any advice is needed and responds to queries very quickly. Steven delivers a friendly, personal and professional service and his knowledge of Quickbooks is second to none. I cannot recommend Steven highly enough; he is an excellent accountant!
