Richard - Testimonial

W&A are a pleasure to work with

After taking our accounts from a, shall we say difficult situation, Jonathan worked closely with us to rectify a number of bad issues he had inherited from our previous Accountant and moved us forward by suggesting new technologies and methods in the process. His entire team at W&A are a pleasure to work with and I would hope we would have a continuing relationship for a long time to come as our business grows.
