If they have one thing in common it's that they're looking for more than just a bean counter; instead, they are looking for a business partner who provides advice that they rely on and responds quickly to their needs, often before they've even thought of the question.
But we would say that, wouldn't we?! So here, in their own words, are what some of our clients have to say.

He proffers sensible, sound advice on numerous issues - He is our little treasure and we both just want you all to know how much we appreciate him here at the Wirral Sports Medicine & Physio Clinic."
Fourth Wall Creative
"With just three-and-a-half years trading under its belt, Fourth Wall is a relatively young, but fast-growing business.

The team there is both friendly and accessible, and whenever we’ve called upon DK’s advice and expertise, it’s always been delivered with clarity, alertness and sound financial sense."

Wirral Sports Medicine & Physiotherapy Clinic
Having taken the plunge to finally move away from my "safe" double entry book keeping system it was evident I would need plentiful advice and support until my understanding of Sage was gained! Chris Geary from Dufton Kellner was an absolute delight to work alongside, his knowledge of Sage immeasurable and he is gifted in his ability to impart this understanding in a very clear concise manner to others. Chris was available to answer all my queries by phone, e-mail and visits so I felt confident every step of the way during the transition. The benefits of the computerised accounts are enormous and I cannot thank Chris enough for always "going the extra mile" in reassuring me with his expertise - but that's what the whole team at Dufton Kellner do though! Thank you.
