  • After trying two other accountancy firms, which made my start in running a business MORE difficult than it needed to be, I am very pleased with the advice and support provided by BI Accountancy. I get very prompt responses to queries, with good explanations, that I have confidence in.

  • Michael and the BI team initially restructured my Freeagent account to get things in order. They also taught me how to properly utilise the software. Since then they have been responsive and proactive. Can’t recommend them enough.
