I have been a client of Emslie Bird for nearly a decade and cannot recommend them highly enough. Having been a solicitor in multi- national law firms I have dealt with many large firms of accountants and initially turned to one of those firms when I became self -employed. I soon turned to Emslie Bird, initially based on price and a personal recommendation. I quickly realised that Paul and the staff of Emslie Bird have an extremely high standard of excellence in accountancy knowledge and practice. The other great benefit though is the personal service and care that Emslie Bird are willing and able to provide. No matter how large or small your enterprise you are in safe, professional and very knowledgeable hands with this firm. They really are outstanding.
Mr P Brixey - A1 Travel
I am writing to thank you for the attention and service that you and your colleagues have provided me over the past eleven years. Going right back to meeting you in your office all those years ago I was impressed with your professional and personal approach, which I’m happy to say, continued throughout our association.
Excellent service and helps us to concentrate on building the business.
Emslie Bird accountants did a fantastic job with the accounts for our small business. They were able to complete our accounts to a high standard and in a very short time frame in order to meet our urgent deadlines. Natasha and Paul could not have done a better job; with particular commendation to Natasha, she provided us with a long list of documents and two years worth of accounts in a very short turn around time. The whole team of staff there are highly professional, warm and polite. We are so pleased with the work they have completed for us and couldn’t imagine using another accountant.
Mr A Bartlam
Emslie Bird provide a consistently high level of service for our accounting needs. Sound advice is always available and they are willing to provide assistance for both personal and company accounting requirements.
Graeme Hepburn – Protium Holdings Ltd
As an update to a testimonial I made nearly a decade ago I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to all at Emslie Bird for the service and support that they have extended to us since our inception in 2001. Emslie Bird have been working with us from the beginning and have recently been heavily involved in an in-depth due diligence process required as we reached our exit strategy and sold the ownership of the company to another party. Over the years they produced our monthly management accounts, ran our payroll, administered our workplace pension scheme, complied and filed our personal tax returns and much more. It has been an absolute pleasure working with them throughout the growth of our company and now we are looking forward to a new chapter as we consider other ventures. I would like to echo the sentiments of many of the other testimonials already made in as much as I would not hesitate to recommend Emslie Bird as anyone’s accountants. They are professional, diligent and responsive to any queries or problems that you may have. They will be a very welcome part of your team as you move forward and grow. My very best wishes and thanks to all at Emslie Bird for everything you have done for us over the years and here’s to the future, I wish you much success for the years to come.
Emslie Bird has prepared and filed my SA tax returns for several years. I have found their service highly competent and efficient. Moreover I appreciate their polite, responsive and ‘no-fuss’ style.
Maria & Michael – Greenhill Park Residential Home
We have used Emslie Bird as our accountants for the past nine years and they have always given us excellent service. Any queries we have, no matter how small, are responded to in a friendly, prompt and accurate manner.
A & J Matthews Engineering Ltd
Since opening our business last September we could not have managed without the help, advice and guidance that Emslie Bird have given us. Thank you.
I have used Emslie Bird for many years both for my business and personal accounts and for a small charity for whom I am Treasurer. I have always found Emslie Bird extremely helpful and they have completed work and answered any queries promptly and efficiently. You are always met with a smile and a warm welcome when you go to their offices and the individual and personal attention you receive makes you feel that they really understand your own particular needs.
Jonathan Wilkes (Director) – J.Gater Designs (Midlands) Ltd
Emslie Bird have been involved with our recruitment company over the last two years, firstly as an advisor whilst the transfer of ownership was being completed and most recently as Company Accountant. Their professionalism, attention to detail and advice has been refreshing and extremely valuable, and I would not hesitate in recommending their services.
Sue Wilding – Pet Patter Ltd
I just wanted to say thank you for your brilliant service in dealing with our accounts so far. The speed you have dealt with our books was very impressive!
I am certainly far less stressed knowing our accounts are in your care.
M Clements & M Kings – Sports Challenge Ltd
Sports Challenge Limited have used Emslie Bird Accountants & Tax Advisors for several months. We have been really impressed by the professional approach of their accountants. The amount of work that has been performed in a short space of time has been exceptional and every question we have asked has been answered quickly and effectively.
Emslie Bird have displayed excellent customer service and have given us in-depth advice regarding our business, accounting and tax issues. We look forward to continuing a strong working relationship with this hard working organisation.
I have been using Emslie Bird to look after my accounts for a very long time. I have used other accountants and settled for Emslie Bird because they do good work for a fair price. I have recently had an Inland Revenue enquiry and this is a very scary thing to have happen. Emslie Bird worked very hard to get things put together to answer the Inland Revenue even though the enquiry was not as a result of their work.
My experience I believe with a lesser firm could have been a lot more painful but this was handled by Emslie Bird in a very professional manner.
They do exactly what they say they are going to do and when they say they are going to do it. Good service from a team of really good people . You will not get better service than I have experienced over the years I have used them.
Mr P Brixey
Emslie Bird provide that personal touch which makes them so different to other Accountant practices. I would recommend them to anyone that wants to deal with real people.
M Bloom – FIS
We have been dealing with Emslie Bird for several years now. Having been disillusioned/dissatisfied with our previous Accountant we went in search of a company who could provide us with a friendly, competent and “value for money” service. In Emslie Bird we have not been let down. From the very start, which was an opportune visit to their office, we were made to feel looked after. Well done to everyone at Emslie Bird!
Mrs G McInnes
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your sterling efforts on our behalf over the past 20 years. We have always enjoyed our meetings very much.
Paul Bird and his staff at Emslie Bird have dealt with our affairs, both for business and personal, for a long time. We have always had great service and they are always there when you need them – in person or on the phone.
We opened our 1st depot back in 2001 and appointed Emslie Bird as our accountants on a recommendation. It turned out to be a very good move indeed. Emslie Bird have been with us since and grown with our company which now has 8 outlets and a turnover in excess of £3m. They produce monthly management accounts which are invaluable to us in terms of strategy, profitability and cash flow, and giving us much needed credibility with financial institutes which is so valuable in today’s economic climate. In addition they also manage our payroll (for 60 staff) and handle all Y/E issues such as filing accounts online, Corporation Tax, personal tax issues etc. They are always professional (no matter how familiar you get with them) and in nine years, I cannot recall an instance where they have ‘fouled up’. Everyone is a pleasure to deal with and nothing seems to come as too much effort for them. I would have no hesitation in recommending Emslie Bird to anyone, whether they were starting up or looking to change from their existing accountant.
Moving from sole trader status to Limited Company in 2006 was a major development for us but we have been delighted with the support we have received from our Accountants, Emslie Bird. What has impressed us most has been their pro-activity.
Fiona George – AMF Recycling Ltd
We have been with Emslie Bird for seven years. They are efficient, friendly and commited to giving a first class service. We look forward to being associated with them for many years to come.
Emslie Bird was the company we first approached 3 years ago when we were a new start up. The advice and guidance they gave us and have continued to give us has been first class. They have always helped us with any issues we have encountered, explaining and simplifying everything in terms that we could understand. Their support has been essential for us to continue to grow our business. They are very efficient, providing an excellent service at a realistic price. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in the business community.
Mr R, CFP Ltd
Now that most of the day to day financial processes have been handed over, I wanted to take some time to thank Emslie Bird on behalf of CFP for all the support you have given us since we started in 2006. It seems a distant memory from the time we were huddled around Paul’s desk, pulling together the initial financial models for the company but in reality time has flown by. Thanks to companies like yours, CFP has grown (in difficult economic times) into an organisation which will hopefully make a valuable contribution to the UK economy, a good return for our investors and provide a secure place to work for our employees. From a personal perspective I have found you to be very reactive and professional in all our dealings.
Mr Crawford, H Ltd
On behalf of the Board of H Ltd, I would like to express our great appreciation for your help over the past few weeks, while we were in the process of securing an alternative Corporate Bank Account. The Board is particularly impressed with the seriousness and speed with which you responded to the various requests for information, even with the very short notice that you were given.
We would like to take this opportunity to recommend the services of Emslie Bird, which has been our accountant for nearly 19 years. All transactions have been carried out efficiently, courteously and in a friendly fashion, and any problems have been resolved quickly. When experiencing difficulties with our computer accountancy package, the solution has always been a telephone call to Emslie Bird, where a member of staff has been able to help. Appointments have always been punctually adhered to, whether at our premises or those of Emslie Bird. In short, we have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending their services, no matter how large or small your company.
Having been a sole trader in Evesham prior to retiring in 2008, I have always felt in excellent hands with Paul and his team, both in business and personal matters. It is very reassuring to know that your interests are being well looked after. This tender loving care has extended into my retirement years and even now, no problem is too small, or too much bother for Emslie Bird to deal with. Many thanks for all your attention over the years…..long may it continue.
Having been a customer of Emslie Bird Accountants for over ten years, I have nothing but the highest praise for their efficiency and co-operation. One telephone call is all that is needed to solve any problem. (and if they say they will ring back, they do) I would recommend these accountants to anyone starting a business or thinking of changing their accountants.
Emslie Bird have acted for a wide range of our commercial and family interests for a period of some fifteen years. As a client, you obviously search for an efficient service combined with an equitable charging structure. Peace of mind at a fair cost. Emslie Bird have always provided this combination. The added benefit as time has passed and the relationship has developed has been Emslie Bird’s ability to act as a patient advisor and trusted third party in resolving the various complex challenges life has a habit of continuing to throw at you.
G Willets, Structural Stairways Ltd
Paul and his staff have provided a friendly, professional, and pro-active service for us in all financial matters for in excess of 20 years. We have always found Paul’s visits to prove useful and informative, accounts are produced in a clear easy and accurate format, and always on time. We therefore would have no hesitation in recommending Emslie Bird to any company looking for a fresh approach to their accounting needs.
John Warrender, Meantime Designs Ltd
Paul Bird and his team at Emslie Bird Limited have been working with us at Meantime Design Limited for about a year now. The difference Emslie Bird have made to our perception of how an accountancy service and general business advice can be handled has been astounding. We thoroughly recommend that you speak with Emslie Bird if you are looking for a friendly, efficient, and cost effective service.
