A selection of comments by happy customers

Sarahjane has worked with Intelligent Retail since 2008. As a growing IT business, during this time we have grown from around 7 people to 50 people. SJ has steered our management accounts throughout that period, providing timely, accurate, reliable and relevant information. She is a great person to have around the office.

We are quite a demanding company to work for, we employed 3 different Accountants/Bookkeepers in the first couple of years of the business before being fortunate enough to be recommended SJ.

SJ is very smart, unassuming, always keen to deliver, 100% trustworthy, one of our most valued people in the business. She properly understands the role of accounts in the business. Looks for simple solutions, does not overcomplicate things and just gets things done.

SJ always looks for the positives, in terms of people and in her general approach to work. She is thoroughly liked and respected through our business. She is one of the rare people that are able to add value in higher level business discussions, whilst able to concentrate on the smaller details that are needed in accounts for accuracy.

As a business owner I could not ask for more. I am very pleased to thoroughly recommend SJ to any business. If you would like any further information please contact me.

David Mackley - Managing Director, Intelligent Retail Ltd

Accurate and reliable financial data is key to the success of any operation. By understanding our business, attention to detail and sharp accounting knowledge SJ has transformed our accounts and now provides key information by which all other business decisions are made. A charming and invaluable asset.

Mark Glanville - Managing Director, Pod Packaging Limited

We have used SJ Accounting's services since 2008 and from day one, have had a really excellent, friendly and professional service. Within a short space of time SJ got to know our business and we saw a big improvement in the usability of the details we got from our accounts system. SJ's calm approach means things get done on time and this is one area where we can "leave it to the professional" and know it will be done to a very high standard. I would be very happy to recommend SJ's services and we certainly wouldn't want to be without her!

Anne Barber - Project Manager, Intelligent Retail Ltd

SJ took on our bookkeeping following a time of having been somewhat neglected. From scratch she introduced discipline and rigour to our accounts and access to proper management information that just hadn't been there before. Collaborating with me, she created the policies, procedures and structures that were meaningful for us and was flexible when we needed to bend it to fit our challenges and opportunities over the next two years. We might have got there ourselves under our own steam, but SJ got us there painlessly, quickly and professionally.

I have known Sarahjane since we studied together for AAT in 2003. I've also had the pleasure of working with her for a number of years before she became freelance. I am very happy to give testament to the fact, that in my experience, Sarahjane is a conscientious and dedicated worker, loyal, trustworthy and reliable. I have always found her to be nothing less than charming and approachable.
