Speclean is a high quality cleaning company providing a range services covering carpet cleaning, communal areas, end of tenancy, housekeeping, office cleaning and upholstery cleaning.
"Many professional business people are afraid of accounting and dealing with money matters. They might think that they will be charged a fortune for every phone call and piece of advice.
Your way of dealing with business is different. You have been very straight forward and easy to understand when we set up the limited company. When we have had feedback you have taken it on board and have been helpful with everyday matters. It is to your credit that you were very proactive with the end of year accounts and your pricing is competitive.
I hope we have a longstanding business relationship and I would not hesitate to recommend your services."
Adrea Vida, Director: October 2012
Victoria B Photography is a professional portrait and wedding photographer based in Kingston upon Thames who can provide studio, home or outdoor shoots.
"I just wanted to say thank you for the service you have provided in preparing my end of year business accounts. Your covering letter provided an exceptionally clear overview of the detailed accounts and you were quick to respond to the few questions that I had. You provided my completed accounts to me ahead of schedule and have submitted them to Companies House and HMRC immediately following my sign-off. In stark contrast to a previous accountant, I feel as though my accounts are in safe hands and I certainly will not hesitate to recommend you to others."
Victoria Bennett, Director: February 2012.
Fitz-Gibbon Residential is a highly successful residential lettings and property management agency, with offices in Richmond, Chiswick and Twickenham. The business not only requires annual accounts, but also a detailed specialist audit under the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) rules.
“Fitz-Gibbon Residential was founded twenty one years ago and we have been using Alan James and Co for the last three years.
We moved to Alan James from a large accountancy firm, which was not a move that we made lightly as our industry can be complex. However, we need not have been concerned, indeed it was the best move we ever made. The service they offer is exceptional, they really care for their clients and ensure that you consider all areas around your business, thanks to Alan James & Co we have developed the way our business has grown and considered options that we might otherwise have missed.
Nothing is too much trouble and everything is explained, indeed Alan James has recently introduced seminars around accountancy and this has proved informative. If there were any areas that were unclear he has ensured clarity. Alan James & Co are a breath of fresh air when it comes to accountants and give life and energy to the industry.”
Susan Fitz-Gibbon, Managing Director: November 2009.
JM Web Services Limited - "I created my new Web Services Company 2 years ago and Alan James & Co provided precious help setting it up. Alan James & Co has been of great support with all my PAYE, Corporation Tax, Filing and Tax Returns.
Always friendly yet very professional, it is a pleasure to work with the team and I highly recommend Alan James & Co for any Company finances."
Joel Moko, Director: September 2009
Eagle Tower, Cheltenham - The Eagle Tower office complex in Cheltenham contains over 100,000 sq ft of office accommodation, including a 14 storey tower. We have acted as auditors of the company which owns and manages this complex since 2007.
“I have 21 years experience of being audited as the book-keeper for a number of limited companies. What I want from my auditors are the rare and desirable characteristics of exemplary good manners, a profound understanding of accounts and an open, helpful and cooperative attitude towards errors or incomplete information. All of this driven along by unfailing good humour and energy. I routinely find this ideal in the auditors supplied by Alan James & Co. The audit is thus so painless that you can even end up going to the movies with the auditor after work.”
Martin Green, Accountant: May 2009.
"Alan James & Co have completed my accounts and tax return for the last two years and I have been delighted with their service; which has been highly efficient, their attention to detail is impressive and their staff are very friendly and helpful. I would strongly recommend Alan James & Co to anyone who is looking for expert advice and professional accounting services."
Anna Hemmings, 6 times World Champion Canoeist: November 2007
Able Data Installations Plc is a network cabling installation company, specialising in designing and installing large cabling systems for corporate clients.
"Alan James & Co were newly appointed to audit our accounts this year. The first change we noticed from previous audits is that the staff conducting the audit, were not only exceptionally thorough, but qualified to discuss business practices and processes during the audit. Further, at the end of the audit we received a comprehensive review of our business, highlighting key points and weaknesses. Not only did the whole process highlight important financial points that had gone for many years unspotted, but we now have a whole list of useful management points to review, many of which we will definitely feed into our procedures.
In summary, I thoroughly recommend Alan James & Co to any company who need approachable but very competent accountants."
Clive Tuckwell, Managing Director: October 2007
