Independent client reviews of SAS Accounting

Simon Robinson is friendly and straightforward. He has in-depth accountancy knowledge and skills, and is very affordable. He not only helped me establish my company, but has become an integral part of its day to day running. He is great to work with and very helpful. He has the ability to make the most complicated financial subject easy to understand for a lay person.


Simon makes himself available and is quick to respond to any questions I may have. Thanks to Simon’s accountancy expertise, I feel comfortable leaving my finances in his hands. I couldn’t be happier with Simon’s services and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
