Happy clients, wonderful words
Beyond how well written the words are on our web pages and how shiny our marketing materials may be, here are our clients’ thoughts about our team and the services we offer.
We appointed Hammonds as our accountants a few years ago and have been really impressed by their professional, efficient and friendly service ever since. The process was explained to us clearly at the initial consultation and the team are always helpful with any queries we may have. It is also important to us to use the services of a local business so we are please that Hammonds are in Beckenham. We thoroughly recommend them to anyone needing a reliable, honest and competitively priced accountancy service.
I started my business with little preparation following a sudden change of circumstances in early April 2018.
Despite it being end of tax year, Geoff made time to talk me through the next steps of setting up my own firm and he and his team have remained very helpful as my business has grown , I’m very happy with the service.
We have used Hammonds Payroll for many years and have enjoyed an excellent service. Rachael Burke is so helpful, professional and friendly. I am forever grateful for her guiding us through the Work Place Pension last year.
Hammonds has provided a fully comprehensive service for the last 4 years enabling me to make the right decisions in terms of my business operations. Hammonds’ advice is friendly and accessible, which is a unique quality aspect of their service, translating complex rules to someone like me who has little knowledge and understanding of this regulated sector. The staff are friendly and always a joy to talk to. Claire is a fantastic Client Manager, helping me with evidencing business related finances for personal affairs. Other members of the team like Milena and Rachael are also very helpful. Hammonds comes highly recommended.
I have dealt with Hammonds for many years during which time I have engaged them in three separate businesses. They are extremely professional, pragmatic and most of all a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
We feel very fortunate to have found Hammonds to help us with our rapidly expanding business. Everyone we’ve dealt with has been patient, knowledgeable and they’ve already saved us a considerable amount of money. We greatly appreciate the excellent service and advice, plus superb support since our very first meeting. Thanks in particular to Geoff, Syed & Milena.
At a key stage of growth for our business Hammonds took over our payroll needs removing a time consuming worry that allowed us to concentrate on our core business. This service has been everything that one would expect from Hammonds – professional, efficient and extremely reasonably priced. We are delighted to recommend them to other businesses.
The payroll service at Hammonds is outstanding. Rachael Burke is highly efficient. She responds to queries quickly and she is always happy to explain and clarify anything. She is really proactive and advises me on potential issues before they even occur, saving me time in the long run. Her support means that I can focus on running my business, knowing that my payroll and pension scheme are being managed effectively.
Having created our own business 9 years ago we were recommended to Hammonds and have worked closely with them during that period. We have been more than satisfied with the service provided and have enjoyed the benefit of a close working relationship with their people. We have no hesitate in recommending them to anyone needing the expertise of a dedicated, local Accountancy team.
Establishing your own company can be, and often is, challenging as I discovered when I decided to form a Business Travel Management consultancy company in June 2007 after having worked for the same global financial organisation for 40 years.
After an exhaustive internet search “googleling” accountants, I decided to arrange a meeting with Geoff Miles at Hammonds. Even after the level of research I undertook, I was still unsure if I had made the correct, initial choice.
From that very first conversation, the challenges I had envisaged became less daunting as Geoff listened to and understood what I was looking to achieve and then explained the options available to me.
Pilcher Associates Limited was formed and incorporated on 2 July 2007 with Hammonds completing all the necessary paperwork including HM Revenue & Customs VAT registration. Since that time Geoff and his team have guided me through changes in company and VAT legislation as well as advising me on the most financial effective way to utilise profits and minimise costs.
Hammonds continue to work with me with consummate ease even though I moved from Beckenham to Glasgow in July 2009! Hammonds also manage my personal self-assessment tax returns and, by doing so, take away any personal stress surrounding my tax liability on income, dividends and capital gains.
The Hammonds team work efficiently and effectively on my behalf in a guiding and unobtrusive manner and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective clients.
Being unsatisfied with our previous accountants I made an appointment with several firms and was most impressed by Hammonds with their professionalism and willingness to get to grips with the complicated nature of our business. We made the switch, and are very glad we did. We’ve implemented a new-online system and are now in a position where the accounts are available in a clear and concise manner helping us make important decisions within our business.
Hammonds provides a service that is friendly, helpful, efficient and full of integrity, both on a business and personal tax account level.
I chose to use the services of Hammonds in 2013 when I decided to start my own business. I needed a company who was able to take care of all my business and personal accounting and taxes as this is not my strong point. Three years later, I can say that everything has been easily and well managed by all the staff at Hammonds. They set up my Limited Company for me within a matter of days with only minimal work from me. The staff keep themselves up to date with all the new tax legislation and are excellent at giving advice within minutes of me asking any questions. I admit that I am no fan of any accounting work at all, so I am grateful to Hammonds staff for doing it all for me. THANKS HAMMONDS!
Hammonds isn’t just one guy you will struggle to get hold of. You can be reassured that they are a team of specialists. So no matter what your question or needs, they will be able to handle it quickly and professionally.
It’s comforting to know I can rely on Hammonds to take care of my financial needs – they do it really well and it allows me to focus on the ‘real work’.
As a Director of a small company, I have found the support and service offered by Hammonds to be first rate. Not only are they highly efficient, speedy in response and extremely competent in all aspects of the accountancy services they provide, but even more importantly, I can pick up the phone and always speak direct to one of their outstanding team, headed up by Geoff Miles.
Over time, we have developed a strong relationship where the team know and understand my business needs and have offered extremely helpful advice on accountancy aspects of business development. Hammonds do much more than provide efficient accountancy services, they have added value to my business.
I use Hammonds for my small business and am very glad I found them. As a writer, taxes and accounts aren’t my number-one skill, so it’s given me great peace of mind being able to leave everything in their capable hands. Claire, my contact, is always at the other end of a phone or an email and is very responsive. She’s also very good at recommending me to people to make sure my business is taken care of from all angles. Can’t recommend them highly enough.
Since starting my business in 2006 Geoff and the team at Hammonds have done my business and personal accountancy. They are very professional and friendly and offer advice that really makes a difference. I would highly recommend them.
I have known Geoff for a number of years and we became one of Hammonds’ first clients when the practice established in 2001. Since then Geoff and his team have provided us with first rate accountancy and audit service, delivering these services in a timely and professional manner. We have always discussed and shared our business plan with Geoff and as a result have received extremely helpful general business advice. I would say to anyone looking for an excellent accounting service delivered by a genuinely friendly team, then look no further – Hammonds would be a great choice.
