What Our Clients Say

We are a happy firm, with happy staff but most importantly we have happy clients! Here is a selection of what some of them are saying about us:

There are few Accountants out there that offer sound, structured and relevant personal and commercial advice. I have used Ram at Jays for many years as he has consistently delivered accounts on time and accurately.

With their professional attitude and flexible approach, we would have no hesitation is recommending them to any potential client.

…provides a reliable and cost effective service for routine matters such as payroll, and VAT, yet is always available to deal with the more difficult questions of tax, finance, leasing etc.

Getting comprehensive advice that goes beyond routine accounting and in plain English is vital for new and growing businesses.

Our transition to Jays Accountants has been seamless and we have been very impressed at the speed with which they have become familiar with our business. We cannot recommend them enough and have already passed on their details to a number of our business contacts.

Incredibly personable and we have built a strong relationship which is completely based on trust, honesty and transparency.

Jays Accountants has been fully responsible for the annual accounts and ongoing accounting support for all aspects of my business since 1992. On all occasions Jays accountants have provided the financial leadership required. Always professional, always trustworthy and great results.

The team at Jays have supported our business growing from a single employee to a team of six. Jays have provided us with Bookkeeping, Payroll, VAT, Monthly management accounting (to very tight deadlines) and Statutory accounts required for a UK Limited company.

Ram is a true professional who works to the highest standards. He offers good advice and he is customer focussed, always adding the personal touch to our business dealings. I would not hesitate to recommend Ram and ‘Jays’ to anyone.

I have found them to live up to their promise of ‘making numbers talk’. They have taken on everything from filling in forms on our behalf to our monthly payroll and have trained us to use a more streamlined ongoing accountancy system… They are always there at the end of the phone to offer us help and advice.

Ram has provided us with efficient year end accounting, regular guidance on best tax practice and deliver clear advice to help us manage our growth. Most important he has a confident approachable manner.

I’ve recommended him to many of my colleagues and friends and based on their consistently positive feedback I know he provides a high quality of service to all of his customers.

We have used Jays from the start and rely on them not just for bookkeeping and accounts but to advise on how we can best meet some of the challenges of financial management in a fairly complex, international and fast-moving business.

I have found Ram to be very professional, trustworthy and dependable in all my dealings with him. He provides excellent advice and service.

Jays provides me with the confidence of knowing my accounts and financial returns are in order so that I can concentrate on the other aspects of running a successful business. Ram and his team at Jays run a professional business with a personal touch.

Ram is dependable and knowledgeable and has a transparent ‘no nonsense’ way of guiding people through the complicated process of keeping books, paying tax and managing accounts.

Ram was very supportive when I was setting up my own business; he recognised, and advised me, when it was appropriate to evolve my business to maximise my income. Ram is personable and approachable. I have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.

They have revolutionised the way we deal with our financial and management accounting as a business.

Jays do offer a complete “start-up service” for small businesses which can include all the accountancy services necessary to … maintain the business: tax, VAT, annual reports, PAYE, dividends etc etc. I would not hesitate to recommend Jays.

Many thanks for your work, advice and assistance over the last three years, and should I venture back to start another business, I would not hesitate to use your services again.

Not knowing which accountant to approach, I happened across Jays Accountants while searching the internet. Liking what I read I made contact with Jays and I have to say that I have not been disappointed.

They have been a breath of fresh air for our business. Key strengths include the interest and energy.

Ram is the man with a plan when it comes to saving tax. He provided sound advice on tax-planning and money saving to a client of mine who was facing a large capital gain problem. As a general accountant he is approachable, knowledgeable, practical and down-to-earth.

Professional and efficient throughout the whole process……with a high level of integrity with very reasonable rates.

We have more, but that would be just showing off! Why not call us today and find out exactly why over 400 of our clients are happy? We’ll make sure that you leave our office with a smile and the confidence that we’ll help you and your business.
