"I used Sam as an advisor and then full accountant when I moved from a sole trader to a limited company. She was incredibly professional and knowledgeable but approachable and always willing to listen and provide valuable advice when needed… which for me was frequently. She always managed to put just enough pressure to get what was needed and I never felt like I was asking stupid questions. Her diverse experience aligned with her wonderful manner but clear approach makes her unmatchable."
