I switched from my conventional accountant so I could access my accounts on a 24/7 basis and my accountancy bill has reduced from over £6,000.00 to just £1896.00. The staff at Net Accounting are so helpful and I have absolutely no complaints. I look forward to dealing with Net Accounting for many years to come.
