I like the speed of Keates & Co. in terms of processing, but basically anything we ask them to do they come back to us really quickly, which is really important for a small company as we're normally a bit late to do things and a bit disorganised on the accounts side. The system they recommend, ClearBooks, has made everything more visible and accurate. I think they're probably stronger on customer service for smaller companies than accountants I've used in the past. I've used bigger accountancy firms who don't move as quickly, but Keates & Co. are more nimble which really helps.

Keates & Co. are very accessible and very flexible as a business because they're small so they can respond quickly. Secondly, they will try and help with everything; They may not always be able to, but they are very accommodating with first enquiries and requests. We've been with them for 20 months. Working with Keates & Co. enables me to get on with the day to day running of the business. They do the engine room parts that I need in the background, so that enables me to focus on the right things. It's also good to have experts around you and know that those people can answer your technical questions.

Keates & Co. help me with my accounts I've got a lot more knowledge about running a limited company. It's helped me to keep my accounts in order. They've got a nice personal aspect to the business; They do things in a personal way.

My initial observation was that I phoned them for advice and they gave me very detailed, sound advice, which they never charged me for. The advice was good and sound and that was the reason why I decided to go with them. They gave me personal time basically. They're very personable people. It's a fairly new business and he explains things in a way that is easy to understand. They're very approachable and the advice given I'm sure will pay dividends over the coming years with regards to the direction the company is going in. My experience with my last accountant was not good. I never got good feedback, they were hard to get hold of, and I always felt I was at the bottom of the queue, whereas Keates & Co. are excellent. They've ticked all my boxes.

We used the guys at Smile Colour Printing for some promotional printing items, and the help they gave us some great help with the layout design & wording of our things. Excellent advice for our general marketing & promotion

Martyn is incredibly knowledgeable, not only on financial / accounting matters but also on issues related to strategy and business in general. When he comes up with solutions to problems, he does not just solve the problem, he thinks outside the box and comes up with the ‘best’ answer for me and my business. I am sure he has been able to communicate with HMRC on our behalf and got a ‘yes’ when I am sure we would have hit a brick wall. Martyn’s knowledge on the detail of how the ‘system’ works in tax and accounting is vast. I would not be without him!
