We changed from our old accountants to Dodd & Co last year and not only did you offer the accountancy service for a cheaper fee than our previous accountants, but you have proved to be more pro-active in giving advice. We were recommended that we change the way we account for VAT and although this is not a huge saving per year, it is better in our pockets than the VAT man's. The main saving to ourselves is the time taken to complete the VAT returns. It was also suggested that we consider becoming a Limited Company rather than a Limited Liability Partnership and we are going to do this at the end of our financial year. This will save us more money, as it will reduce our yearly tax bills. We would recommend using Dodd & Co to any of our clients (or yourselves) and plan to do so in the future.
