We have many happy and satisfied customers who choose to place their trust in us. Here are just a few of their comments…

"Mike and his team have provided the most invaluable service to a small business: steady and calm management of the financial side of the business, allowing us to concentrate on the stuff we know how to do. Mike's insights into what will work for us, and assured guidance on where to take specific actions to help us be more efficient mean that we were able to operate effectively from day one. The systems set up, using Xero, was also painless, giving us the foundation from which to grow".

Mark Hubbard – Smart Brown Dog

"Mike and his team have proved invaluable in assisting transferring our accounting to Xero. His expert accountancy knowledge and executive skills have helped our company to develop a solid financial strategy and identify tangible benefits and savings. We look forward to continuing to work with Mike and building on the sound, practical advice he has provided. A+".

"As a new business Events for Golfers wanted to make sure they started out in the right way with their finances. They approached the finance department initially just to take care of book keeping, for a new business this support has been essential in allowing the business owners to focus on the things that matter most".

Andy Jack – Events for Golfers

"As a rapid growth business Jarrods Staircases needed an accounts and finance solution that was capable of scaling up with the business. Jarrod started out with the essentials package, but now The Finance Department provide advice and services across the spectrum including at Finance Director Level".

Jarrod Matthews – Jarrods Staircases

"Mike and his team at the Finance Department have recently assisted us with the transition from Sage to Xero. Mike used his commercial and business experience to consult during the early stages, allowing us to demo various features and provided prompt and generous advice on the best way forward. Once we started, the process of transition was seamless and timely. Post implementation, Mike helped us get to grips with Xero (which is extremely user friendly) and continues to be there for support. In short, if you are looking for help with Xero, look no further than Mike and his team".

Shaun Durham

“I have known Mike for 15 years and would highly recommend The Finance Department. This is the second time I have used his outsourced accounting services for a UK subsidiary. Mike and his team have done a wonderful job forming our UK company and setting it up in Xero, managing our accounting, payroll, payments and VAT. The team is always responsive and available when needed, and I know Mike is a phone call away if I need him.”

Chuck Armstrong, Director of Staff Squared
