Worked first time with Martin, he was very prompt, knowledgeable and thorough. He had all the necessary information well documented and also provided explanations on the accounting terms previously unknown to me and submitted my returns in a very short time. Professional services at a very reasonable rate. Look forward to work with him in future.

Exceptional service from Martin Russell!
Professional, extremely quick to respond, patient, helpful and very friendly!
Such a quick turnaround from us providing the information, to Martin completing the work and sending to HMRC.
The best accountant we’ve had in 30 years and we will be using him every year from now on!
We feel very lucky to have found Martins company on Bark! Best thing we’ve done.
