Martin and Company took time to understand my business in detail and explained things in plain English. They are also very pro-active and have made me aware of various tax and VAT changes way in advance giving me enough time to think things through before putting into practice. I wholeheartedly recommend them.
Having been a Client of Martin & Company since 2001 I have nothing but praise for this local accountancy business. They have handled all my accounts both personal and business, attended to my monthly payroll, VAT and all other business requirements. They have given great advice and help with all my tax situations, property transactions and always offered immediate help and solutions with any questions or concerns. I give them my highest recommendation.
