Age UK Medway have engaged Friend & Grant Ltd as our auditors for the first time to conduct the year end audit for our charity 2012/13.

We found the process to be;

  •          Supportive
  •          Informative
  •          Robust
  •          Intelligently Lead

We have been pleased with the auditors across Friend & Grant, both the senior auditor and the visiting audit team.

Working alongside during the audit, I found as CEO that the process was reassuringly thorough and highly professional.

Good humour and healthy discussion was a key part of the engaging process and I feel that this is a rare find amongst such professionals.  We look forward to our continued relationship.

Starting out in business can be a very daunting prospect as you enter the world of tax and employment law, as well as having to learn to undertake roles required in business, book keeping, management, marketing and sales etc.  This is where I believe Friend & Grant Ltd differ from other accountants.  

Any accountant can balance your books and submit your accounts however Friend and Grant do much more than that.  Over the past 13 years Mark and his staff have helped me expand my simple service company into multiple Limited Companies selling internationally, employing a range of staff and owning our own property.

Friend & Grant have the great mix of being very professional and friendly too.  They consistently give me invaluable advice and guidance and are always at the end of the phone if I have a quick query.  The depth of knowledge that they have is reassuring.  Needless to say I will continue to recommend them.

Friend & Grant are a good company with whom to do business.  They do not seek to confuse you with ”accountancy jargon” but explain what I need to know in plain English.  They take a sincere interest in my business, are always efficient, enthusiastic and a joy to work with.

We have worked together now through two recessions and there is little doubt that without the help you gave us last year with your cash flow forecast, which highlighted some serious times ahead and your suggestions for the various changes we would have to make to avoid these potential problems we could have found ourselves in dire straits.

Friend and Grant has always taken a genuine interest in understanding my business and seeing it realise its full potential; and when we moved from the Medway towns in 2003 and relocated to Lincolnshire, maintaining our relationship with Friend and Grant was considered and essential part of the logistics.

I think I may have mentioned to you previously but when I first decided to go it alone as a contractor I knew that I would need an accountant so I literally picked one from the local directory.  Looking back on that decision 14 years later, I can honestly say that it was probably the best decision I have ever made.  I don’t feel that I have ever been alone because I have always known that you and your team have always been a phone call or e-mail away to offer me advice.

Mark and his team are always on hand to answer any questions and recently gave us great advice on using child care vouchers, which has come in very useful with our 2 year old starting nursery this year.

P Burke

Friend & Grant Ltd were recommended to us by our previous accountant of several years when he retired.

We have been suitably impressed by the friendly efficiency with which they carry out all aspects of accountancy for our small business.

They are always available, giving advice when we need it, prompting us when we are forgetful…, and making suggestions on the cause of action when new legislation arrives. We have every confidence in the staff of Friend & Grant Ltd.
