What our clients say about us…

I want to thank Burton Sweet for the way you have handled my tax affairs. In particular, Adam has been extremely courteous, helpful and responsive. He responded immediately to email queries and was professional at all times, providing regular updates on progress. Working in the consultancy business myself for over 30 years, I know that people are not always forthcoming with positive feedback where this is due. In this case I have to say that Adam is a credit to your business.

I have not dealt with any other tax adviser so excellent as yourself (Michele Shapland, Private Client Tax Manager).

Catherine Nelligan – Star Legal Limited

Thank-you so much for all your help since you started working with us (Adam), I’ve been self-employed for 10 years now and you are by far the best accountant I’ve had.

Rob Smith – Rob’s Florist Supplies

Like all musicians and artists I’ve had good, bad (and even ugly!) times. Over the last 25 eventful years I’ve had Nigel and Burton Sweet to turn to. Sometimes with their careful and immensely knowledgeable accounting saving me quite literally thousands of pounds. And at other times of financial concern, offering the very best advice, enabling me to continue working knowing that all will be OK in the end.

Alison and her colleagues at Burton Sweet always provide a prompt and friendly service. I like knowing that my tax affairs are in safe hands.

The best things about working with Burton Sweet, for me, are peace of mind and good regular communication, you always advise me in advance of any action required. The time and advice given when I started out was, and still is priceless to me. There have been times due to ill health when I’ve felt overwhelmed, so the peace of mind thing kept me going, I can’t emphasize that enough.
