What our clients say
I’m delighted with The Helpful Bean Counter. Terrific help with my start- up consultancy business a couple of years ago, and I have been with them since. Really ‘helpful’ people!’
Chester Armstrong – Rotorpath Consulting Limited, Storrington, West Sussex
Having transferred from another accountant to the Helpful Bean Counter, I am amazed by the difference and wish I’d done it sooner! Whereas my previous accountants failed to explain the numbers and what was happening, Jane and Martin have been clear and straightforward throughout and have ‘rescued’ my accounts from a fairly messy state. I can now focus on running and expanding the business confident that the accounts are taken care of.
Henry Ridgwell – Suntrap Media Limited, East Sussex
We are working together from start up stage for the last 3+ years and I must admit it was smooth journey. I can not recommend Jane and Martin strongly enough as ”set and forget” accountants especially if you are at the early stages of your business. Moreover it was not only accountancy, but mentoring, helping and advising part what got us through some of the quite periods too. Thank you Jane and Martin
