I started my organisational psychology consultancy business in 2016 after graduating from university. As if starting a new business wasn’t daunting enough, the accountancy side of running my own business frightened the life out of me. I had no idea about what this entailed or what I needed to do.
Not knowing where to start I picked up the telephone and called David Allen after my mum said she had worked with them for the past 15 years. Thank goodness she recommended the business to me as that was the start of a great working relationship.
I had an initial meeting with Craig Pollock where I bombarded him with tons of questions and told him all about my growing box of receipts! Craig immediately reassured me that he would help. He was great at explaining the things I needed to know while removing the burden of everything else technical – sorting it for me. Above all he was really patient and kept me informed at all stages of the process, providing me with complete peace of mind.
My tax return was a little more complicated and took longer than originally anticipated, however Craig still only charged me what he had originally quoted, which was a surprise when the invoice landed but was great and has further strengthened and cemented our ongoing relationship. The customer service has been simply quite exceptional! Everyone I have spoken to has been really friendly and helpful with nothing ever being too much trouble.
Craig Pollock and the David Allen team have saved me so much time and money, I have definitely found my accountants for life.
