CRASL's 15th Birthday

At CRASL we recently celebrated our 15th birthday and what better way to celebrate than with cake. 

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!

I just wanted to say how very pleased I am to have had the opportunity to change my accounting affairs to CRASL.

You have made it all suddenly seem so very simple; with your friendly assistance, my Self Assessment has been submitted without hassle and your account I settled with the greatest of pleasure!

It was particularly helpful that you visited me in my home, where everything was at hand, rather than previously having to put everything in the post.

I shall look forward to our meeting again next year.
