What our clients say about us

Fantastic reliable service with a friendly & personal touch

B.D. – Director of a Housekeeping & Management Business

I have been with Martin Fuller and Chapel Road Accounting for many years now.  They offer a reliable service with a no nonsense approach at very competitive fees.” 

A.R. – Director of a Specialist Powder Coating Company

“I’ve been lucky enough that Martin and his team have been doing my accounts for nearly 15  years now. They’ve taken me from a new sole trader, through vat registration, limited company status and all the legal and financial  stuff that comes with running a growing business. I like dealing with the CRASL team, I’ve always found them to be fair, true and very responsive. They take the stuffiness out of accounting, I love it!” 

C.H. – Director of a Corporate Training Company
