What out clients say
“I have worked with the Accounts Department for approx 3 years. I started initially with bookkeeping, to keep me on top of my reconciliation and cash flow each month. They also got me started using Xero. After a while, Xero had become second nature to me, and at a level and speed I was comfortable with I started using it more and more and with the help of the Accounts Dept, I starting to understand my management accounts more and more each month.
As a business owner of a fast growing SME, I need an accountant who I know is in my corner, someone who cares about the health of my business and takes the time to think strategically - not just balance the books.
It was a very easy decision for me this year to decide to move my entire accounting over to the Accounts Dept NE and now they look after my rec and check, my payroll and management accounts at a rate that is affordable to me too.
I enjoy working with the whole team now. Their MD feels like my FD - I know she has my back and I feel safe - which is important to me - and enables me to enjoy running my business, while knowing that my finances are all in order and in excellent hands.”

“As Finance director for Amazing Parties Ltd, I have been using Juliet's services for over five years and have been very satisfied with both her professionalism and timely responses to any issues. Bookkeeping and accountancy has been faultless.
"The service we receive from Juliet and The Accounts Dept NE is always first class. Juliet is extremely diligent in her approach and has great attention to detail. Her knowledge of Xero is of a very high standard and if a new scenario comes up she’s always able to figure it out. She is regularly in contact with our suppliers, partners, customers and accountant to help figure out any queries that come up and she has gone the extra mile to do research around more complex issues, such as VAT partial exemptions. In the time we have worked with Juliet she has become a very important and trusted member of our team."
“We contacted the Accounts Dept around 2 years ago now. We were already on Xero when Susan came in on a recommendation from our previous bookkeeper, but our Xero had a couple of issues. Susan was brilliant and sorted out all of our queries and tidied up our opening balances and especially our aged debtors and creditors.
Susan works with our current in house admin assistant and is always on hand to help out with any questions that she may have. I feel happy that our accounts are checked over at the end of each month and the VAT return is checked for us before filing.
This year we have asked The Accounts Dept to organise all of our year end accounts too and having the same person involved throughout the year and then at year end is great. I feel confident that my accounts are now spot on and up to date.”
