Jack has been a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable, thorough, professional and eminently helpful. Tax obligations were an intimidating prospect for me, so I'm grateful to have discovered the Bright Ideas accountancy. Every email I receive is simple and to the point, and I appreciate the periodic blog posts to keep me up to date on regulations as well!
