Andrew Webster

It's been "that time of year again"!

Paul and his team have made our annual return a seamless process once again.

Paul, or one of his team, is always on hand if we have a query to address any questions we have swiftly. We are extremely grateful for the efficient and professional service that we always receive.

We will definitely be continuing to recommend Afford Bond.

Adi Dean

I would like to highly commend Afford Bond who organise our company accounts, tax returns and payroll; providing us with a trustworthy and invaluable service for which we are most grateful.

Paul and his team always deal with our enquiries in a friendly, competent and efficient manner. It must be said that they proved to be very patient when they first took us on; our original accounting system was not particularly clear for others to understand!

We would like to thank Paul and his colleagues for the wonderful service they provide. We will continue to highly recommend their services to friends, family and business acquaintances.

Adi Dean, Ensure Safety and Training

I wanted to write to you to let you know we are so very pleased with your service especially your latest help in advising us on issues of tax relief, corporation tax savings, implications of pay structures and other tax efficiencies to aid cash flow and also your work on directors personal tax returns.

We would always recommend you in our dealings with other companies.

Paula Stanyer, Owl Projects & Maintenance Limited

As a company we try and focus our time on ensuring that our customers IT systems and networks are running smoothly and the important paperwork work we all know needs doing sometimes can get moved down the 'things to do list' - thankfully you and your team at Afford Bond allow us the time to focus on what we’re good at by providing us with both excellent Accountancy and Payroll services.

Both you and your very capable team are friendly and obliging. Your prompt attention to our enquiries has seen issues quickly resolved, enabling us to get back to the important task of running our business.

Your dedication and expertise continue to be highly beneficial and most appreciated, and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and colleagues for professional accounting advice and friendly service.

Tom Daniels, Think About IT

Many thanks for your excellent service in assembling my annual accounts and all the other related matters.

I look forward to working with you in the next year and would not hesitate to recommend you to my contacts and others.

Stuart Hallworth, Hallworth Residential Survey

Changing your accountant isn’t an easy decision. Whatever the reason for the move – maybe cost or service – you still have that nagging feeling that you could be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.

That is of course, unless, you receive a personal recommendation for a new provider.

Being part of the highly successful South Cheshire Chapter of BNI meant that Afford Bond already had over thirty personal recommendations – and the forum also gave agenda an excellent opportunity to meet and get to know Director Paul Edwards a relaxed and informal setting. There was never any pressure – but the way that Afford Bond set out to explain its offer and then once we had made our decision, help agenda through the transition was professional and authoritative, while at the same time being friendly and supportive.

Not only is the service already proving a more cost effective option, but Afford Bond is taking the time and trouble to get to know our business – and is suggesting ways we can run our financial affairs more efficiently – and save money.

Heather Pritchett, Agenda Communications

I have utilised the services of Afford Bond Chartered Accountants for the best part of 25 years, firstly as a partnership and in the latter years as a limited Company.
Paul Edwards was introduced to me as "the new young man who will deal with your accounts" some 8 years ago. Having dealt with Mr Bond himself and other employees of the company I eagerly awaited my first meeting with Paul.

We have come to rely on Paul's simple and uncomplicated advice to steer us through the balance sheet in a way we understand. He will always help with any question we have and offers practical advice to steer us through'
Paul gives me all the time in the world to go through the end of year accounting, rather than handing me the invoice and a nicely bound copy of my business for that year.

I trust the partnership we have, I am given solid, sound advice and I know that however trivial my questions, Paul will always be available to answer them. He is always eager to point out the savings made too, which makes us both smile (job satisfaction for Paul I'm sure).

The last 3 or 4 years have been difficult, business wise and none more than last. I found myself in a position which had been the most stressful and testing time in 32 years of trading. We were on the verge of bankruptcy, having our largest customer just go under without settling outstanding debts.

Without any hesitation Paul set up a telephone meeting with a highly reputable Insolvency Company, to seek more pertinent advice. He was there throughout the process and offered his number to call even when on a family holiday. The security that gave to me was immense and because of his help we continue today and for all of that Paul....THANK YOU.

I would recommend fully, the personal service, care and attention received from Afford Bond and Paul Edwards.

Judith Lawley, Thrive Cheshire

I have recently used Afford Bond for my tax return 2010/11. Everyone I dealt with were very polite, professional and had an answer to any of the questions that I had. They dealt with my, less that organised, filing system without any problems and without the need to call me.

I have and will continue to recommend Afford Bond to my professional and personal contacts and have now employed them as my accountants for the foreseeable future.

John Booth, Opto Building Solutions

I wanted to take the time to write to you to express my thanks and appreciation for the way in which you dealt with our client Mr Simon Morris and his wife Helen.

As always we referred Mr Morris to you with confidence knowing that they would receive the first class service that I have come to expect from you and Afford Bond, and this is exactly what they got. Mr Morris has expressed to us his personal gratitude for the referring you for the tax planning advice he sought initially, and as I understand you are continuing to help him in a new venture he is planning this year.

You may rest assured that you have my continued trust, respect and support and would have no hesitation to refer any of my clients, friends or family.

Colin Yoxall, Watts

What's the difference between a networking group and a referral network?

Simple... One usually involves lots of coffee and chatting, the other helps grow your business with genuine business introductions
