What our clients say
I would wish to express my personal gratitude to David Newborough and his splendid team at Ashgates for their specialist help, advice, and support over the last 7 years or so, beginning with my appointment as chairman with the brief to return the company to satisfactory trading status. Ultimately with a view to a sale.
We moved all our Company accounts including payroll and the Directors personal tax affairs to Ashgates around two and a half years ago. Ashgates worked tirelessly and professionally to bring our accounts for our group of companies to a position that we felt could never be achieved.
Ashgates was recommended to me by a good friend, and I am pleased she has. Ashgates helped us set-up as a limited company with considerable ease.
And with the support of XERO software Ashgates provides us with a very friendly and supportive service that we have been drawing upon for a number of years in person and when needed, also virtually from afar.
Ashgates were very helpful with the set up of our small new business about 3 years ago and providing a professional accounting service since then.
Ian Johnson has always been very friendly and approachable and his help and advice has been invaluable. Ian has a way of explaining stuff you need to know and always replies promptly to any emails or telephone calls. The staff have always been friendly, helpful and polite and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
I have been using Ashgates to complete my accounts for the last 5 years, and have found them to be very professional in their approach.
Steve Martin has been my accountant throughout, and has always given good advice on all financial matters. I would thoroughly recommend Ashgates if you are looking for a professional company to manage all accounting aspects.
