I first met Tony back in 2003 when we instructed Tony to be the Accountant for our new distribution company.

Tony was always very approachable, thorough, honest and competent. Nothing was ever too much for Tony, despite having Mr Banger on the phone on numerous occasions confusing everyone and everything, he always remained calm, collected and awake!

I started a new company in 2012 doing SEO, and Tony was by my side throughout the whole process.

More recently, when Tony started Octave Accountants he continued to keep his clients completely in the loop with the transition period whilst accounts and files etc. all moved across, and the whole process was generally smooth and worry free.

I get the jist that all of Tony’s clients, not just ourselves, trust him implicitly with every aspect of their accounts. A trusted accountant hey, that’s a rarity… but then so is Tony!

18 years as our Accountant, and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Tony to anyone who may be interested in his services. If you don’y currently use Tony, you really should.

He’s pretty good, you know.
