    "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."

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."
