When DonnellyBentley initially helped us with accounts preparation for the year end, their staff were very obliging and accommodating from, as we all had to work to particularly tight timescales.

Now, when we know that the auditors are coming they ensure that we are fully briefed to respond to any queries.  They list everything that we will need to prepare and talk us through it in detail. Good communication and support have been invaluable.

Ours is a family business, started by my father 28 years ago. We are based in Bury and provide good quality frozen meals to elderly and vulnerable people.

We know all about quality and service and so I expect it from my suppliers too. The team at DonnellyBentley are great, always friendly, attentive and very helpful.

They do our accounts; end of year and payroll and the level of service is outstanding.

“Awesome Walls now has four indoor climbing centres in Liverpool, Stockport, Stoke and Sheffield. When we changed accountants back in 2005 we noticed a significant difference in the service we received. Now, we have regular meetings with a partner who has a thorough understanding of the business and is able to explain our finances clearly to us whilst making a very valuable contribution to our plans to develop and expand the company.”

Angela Donohoe has been both our business and personal accountant since 1999 and, during that time, I have found her to be the consummate professional. Everything required is provided in a prompt manner and presented when necessary, in lay man’s terms. Angela deals with all our issues with a balanced blend of in-depth knowledge and high integrity.

She has a ‘can do’ mindset and a pleasant personality, which is ideal for every business. We have worked together for nearly 16 years now, and I look forward to maintaining our business relationship for the next 16.

We are electrical contractors based in Rossendale and Angela and Gill have been a great support over the past 6 or 7 years. Mostly handling general accounts and wages but also in helping us to organise the recent  restructuring of our business. They are very reliable and always easy to contact when you need them.

I approached DonnellyBentley for advice concerning a taxation matter involving a challenge to my tax affairs by HMRC. I had disagreed with the advice provided by my original taxation advisers, a major international accountancy practice, who advised that I should pay the sums demanded by HMRC.

DonnellyBentley advised that my position was robust and could be defended. With their help, HMRC were defeated and I won the case.

I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism of the firm.  Their encouragement and support during the lengthy litigation process was essential to maintaining my resolve to defend my rights “Under the Law”.
