We appreciate the level of service and attention a local firm provides, and the knowledge that as we grow, they have the backing of the AC Group association to grow with us.
I was in the banking business for 20 years and worked with accounting firms of all types and sizes. When I made a career change 10 years ago one decision that was very easy to make was to use a local CA firm. I had seen first hand the importance of receiving personal, uninterrupted accounting and financial advice.
