Stephenson Smart has been our accountancy firm for about four years, looking after our payroll, bookkeeping, tax, management accounts. We employ 18 people, so as a small business it’s important to be able to put our trust in an accountancy firm. We don’t feel like we are a number, we view Chris as an extension to our team. If I had to sum up Stephenson Smart in one word it would be awesome.
