'I am just writing to thank you and your staff for all the help you have given us all year with our accounts. We have been so impressed with the professional and efficient service you provide. Wages are calculated each week without delay and Laura has always gone the extra mile to answer our questions when we've needed advice.
It is so reassuring to know that our accounts are in the hands of such a professional and reliable firm, and that we benefiting from up-to-date knowledge and advice to make the accounting process as smooth as possible. As you say "tax needn't be taxing" and this has certainly been our experience since we have enlisted the help of Wood and Disney with our accounts.
I will certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to any of our clients, friends and family in the future.'
'I would like to thank both you and Peter for a very fruitful and successful meeting at your offices; both Bronwen and I felt comfortable and at home with both of you. The information and guidance that we received has given us a lot to think about.'

'Fantastic Turn-around times! Many thanks.'
'Having been involved in all aspects of the Accountancy industry over the past 16 years, one is all to used to "consultants and advisers" of all sorts claiming to have the answers to all of your companies problems, often with very little in the way of constructive results. I am extremely pleased to say however that in this instance the process has been at the very least enlightening, moreover has identified very real and possible opportunities for improving the profitability of the organisation.'
'Since applying to your team of accountants later last year my husband and I have now realised just how misinformed we were previously. Book keeping, once a miserable task resentfully performed, has now proved to be a fundamental quality experience which has enhanced our autonomy.
The humanistic approach undertaken by the team is of significance when dealing with people who are not so experienced in the fine art of accounts. Once again thank you, and may our future transactions prove just as satisfactory.'
'I feel that it is right and proper for us to say how pleased we are that your company deal with our audit and accountancy work. Since the inception of our association, may I say that we all appreciate the way you have already become part of our small family company, offering us a very valuable source of advice especially on financial matters over and above the kind of information we have received in the past.
Please accept our sincere thanks both to yourself and to the members of your staff involved with our work and we trust that this mutual association will continue for many years.'
'I am writing a few lines to thank you for all of your assistance and guidance over the last few years. It is a refreshing change to receive a quick and efficient response to our enquiries especially after the bad experiences I had encountered with previous firms of accountants.
The extra advice that you have given me which is not always related to accountancy has been invaluable in the progress of my company in the right direction towards profitability and growth. The overall performance of yourself and also your staff can only be described as first class.'
'We were dissatisfied with our previous accountants as we felt they only processed our accounts, and that an accountant should be providing so much more. We chose Wood & Disney because we felt that Peter Disney had a close understanding of our business and took an active interest in it.
I am particularly pleased with our choice. Wood & Disney have provided us with excellent advice and have taken an incredibly proactive role. Added to that, Peter Disney has provided many networking connections with similar companies, some of whom have become customers and even close friends.
I now consider Wood & Disney to be more a business support and advice provider and far more than simply our accountants. I have no hesitation in recommending Wood & Disney.'

'Please extend my thanks to your staff for the really nice way I was dealt with today. In a few minutes I was shown how to deal with scale charges for my car. I must also commend you on the fact that whenever I have visited there is always a nice atmosphere, and I know you can not touch it but you can sense it.'
'May I take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at Wood and Disney for the accounting services provided for Millcrest Computer Consultants Limited since 1st January 2001. From this period I have subsequently noticed and experienced a high level of service and attention to detail that is second to none from your organisation. Wood and Disney has produced a first class accounting service from the simplest tax enquires to all manner of mandatory accounting returns and profit advice. As a result I am delighted to recommend Wood & Disney to any business or individual who requires the services of a chartered accountant establishment.'
'I was talking to a family friend the other day, accountants came up, I said I had just changed after several years, he said "although it may be too late, I would thoroughly recommend my accountant"... guess who!' Yes you.'

'Thanks for your time last Thursday when we analysed our end of year figures. I would like to say how impressed I was with the simplicity of your profit improvement software in showing the effect on profit that various different "what ifs" could have on my business. It certainly showed me how one or two relatively small adjustments can have a huge impact on profit at the end of the year.'

'I am writing this letter because I would like to express how pleased I have been with the high level of service we have received, not only from you, but everyone we have dealt with so far in your company. It makes a refreshing change to continually receive such professional, efficient and courteous service.'
'Many thanks for your prompt attention whilst preparing our accounts this year especially in view of the problems with our addition! I am finding the Newsletter very informative. I have recommended Wood & Disney to several people this year and hopefully they will be in contact with you.'
'Just a note to say thank you: Since employing your services we have been very impressed. The staff at Wood & Disney are helpful, professional and efficient and a total pleasure to deal with.
We now feel that we are actually being looked after, receiving the right advice and guidance from a team of accountancy professionals that understand the 'numbers stuff' as well as how our business operates. The e-books are brilliant - easy to read and extremely useful.
Thank you also for ensuring that the move across was (surprisingly) stress free, we just wish we had changed Accountant's sooner!'
'I would like to thank you and your team for the speed in which you have put my accounts together within less than two months of the financial year end, and this will prove beneficial to me for our expansion.'
'I had intended sending you a letter at the beginning of November to mark the tenth anniversary, but I was in Norway at the time so it was put off until I returned home. I would like anyway to thank you for having handled my financial affairs over the past decade and for having provided such excellent value for money.
"As you know I have never taken very readily to the idea of paying anyone to do something which I could perfectly well do myself, nor am I someone who will cheerfully go on paying for a half-hearted service from those whom I engage to act on my behalf. But as regards the service offered by wood and disney I have to say that I am more than satisfied. Not only have you I am sure saved me more money each year than I have spent on fees, but your advice has been a constant support to me through these ten sometimes difficult years. In my view the service you offer is admirably tailored to the needs of one-man businesses like my own, and I have taken every opportunity to recommend your firm to colleagues of mine who have been setting up on their own account."
Thank you anyway for the service your firm has given me over the past decade, and I hope that our association will continue for many years to come.'
'Please can I take this opportunity to thank you and John for completing these accounts for me swiftly, and in an efficient manner. It is a great please to deal with a firm who can provide a good service without the need for me to get heavily involved in too much detail.'
'I was really touched to receive the bottles of Australian Wine in honour of my 60th. It also reminds me that I have been using your firm, originally through Philip Wood, since 1976 (so half my life!). So thanks to you and the firm, and I look forward to your continued support. For some, retirement may begin at 60, but I am intending to stay in harness for some time still.. So you may assume that we will remain in contact for some years to come.'
'This is a testimonial to acknowledge your professional advice and service. I would like to thank you and your staff in the way that you have dealt with my aunt's tax matters. Not only have the instructions been easy to follow, the service been swift and thorough but also you have managed to get her a refund from the Inland Revenue."
"I am writing to thank you for the work you have just completed on behalf of my clients. They have called me to say how happy they were with the speed, the helpfulness, the price and the outcome of the work. I would like to thank you for your professionalism. A happy client means a repeat client. I have no hesitation in referring others to you whenever possible, safe in the knowledge that my clients will be well looked after by you."
'Can I say that the assistance and advice (regarding Capital Gains Tax) we have been given so far has been most impressive and the final tax bill verging on the unbelievable. My wife and I are both most grateful for your most expert and professional help and we look forward to completing the matter when our tax returns are completed by you for 2008.'

'Thank you very much indeed for a very good meeting last week. We found it very useful and positive - on leaving I felt buoyed up and raring to go - especially as you spoke to me in a language that I understood! I have been very impressed with how quickly you have dealt with the preparation of our annual partnership accounts. I look forward hopefully to many years of working together to develop Travel Services.'

"I just wanted to say, in relation to the services you have provided myself and my company, I have been literally over the moon with the level of personal service you provide which is seamlessly coupled with a very high level of knowledge and expertise.
I have found that having an accountant involves a great deal of trust. Trust in your advice being accurate and timely. Although I am still not entirely sure how, you always have time for me when I need a quick chat and are happy to share your knowledge of not just accountancy but running a small business as a whole. You are an accountant and excellent business coach all rolled into one!"
"I am personally very happy indeed with all elements of your service to my business."
"As usual, Peter gave good, sound and understandable advice – something Janine and myself have come to accept with grateful relief after many in the profession would cloud our minds with technical jargon. We are also appreciative of the 'snippets' of information given promptly by telephone from time to time."
"Peter Disney has been my company's accountants for 21 years. I've never ever considered changing because his service and knowledge of his subject remains exemplary. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any company large or small."
