"Karen (Castle Accountancy) has proved to be a speedy, up to date, meticulous, persistent, intelligent, professional, realistic, and easy to communicate with. She also actually seems to enjoy doing something that makes me feel queasy."
"Karen plays a key role in our business. Day to day I am busy running our client accounts and don’t always have my eye on the admin. Thankfully Karen never drops the ball. She takes care of all our HMRC duties, the payroll and forecasting, as well as our year end reports. Last year she researched and found the best online accounting package for us and as a result we now work collaboratively, with full visibility of the accounts in real time. Brilliant. Oh yes, and she’s also a thoroughly good human."
"Thank you so much for taking over my self assessment. You made it so much easier for me. To just be able to get on with my job and not have to worry about it gave me the greatest relief. You have a wonderful approach, certainly know what you are doing and I will be recommending you to everyone I know ... Self employed people need you in their life!Also, thank you for organising my 'account stuff' into an organised fashion...that was a lovely surprise."
