Testimonials

My wife Mary and I own the lease on a 13 bedroom, hotel, restaurant and public bar in Goring on Thames, South Oxfordshire. We’ve been working with Fairmile Accounting since the beginning of 2019. We switched initially as we got bogged down with too much process from our old accountant and we haven’t looked back.

Fairmile quickly gained an understanding of how we work or like to work and applied their systems to our set up. They process all payroll, P&L reports, pension and our tax liability. If the data/information is processed by us efficiently, the monthly accounts are always turned around within the time scale agreed. All information/data is held in the cloud and is easily accessible from wherever we are working.

The team at Fairmile are professional but understanding of the pressure operators in our sector face day to day, We like this, as we are always prompted when deadlines are getting close, to enable us to complete information on time.

In short the team At Fairmile are there exactly when we need them but otherwise remain in the background keeping this side of our business intact.

 

We have been using Fairmile Accounting for over two years, since our previous accountancy service was unable to cope with the volume of our transactions.  Fairmile have provided an excellent service and we have now handed over all the financial processing to them, apart from basic operational reporting.

Their process where site managers scan and forward all paperwork for entry into xero has dramatically sped up information flow.  They have also quickly adapted to adopt the various other services we use (e.g. timekeeping, hr, banking) which has made life easy for me.  The best thing I can say is that it all just happens invisibly in the background.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Fairmile as a reliable, good value accounting service for hospitality businesses.  They have been quietly solid during normal trading, and extremely supportive during the pandemic changes.

I am very happy to provide further recommendation or personal conversation to follow up.

A very friendly and efficient company.

Katy and her colleagues are always available to answer any questions and queries we have and they turn around and present our accounts in a speedy and professional manner.

Changing Accountants is always a big deal as its easy to stick with what you know but I am extremely pleased we switched to Fairmile.

In my nineteen years as a Business owner, I have found them to be by far the most efficient, friendly, customer-focused and cost-effective accountants I have dealt with.

I would highly recommend.

I strongly recommend Fairmile Accounting. I have worked with Katy at Fairmile for 6 years now, having left my prior accountants very early on in my tenancy. This week (following pub closure due to CoronaVirus) I have had the most amazing information and support from Katy, plenty of communication, and can honestly say it has been invaluable and a major contribution to reducing stress levels at this difficult time.

Fairmile might be the best contact you make this week…

Katy and Fairmile accounting have been outstanding – They helped us with a difficult transition to our new company and have been there every step of the way – Nothing is ever too much trouble.

All the monthly data is clear and easily understood and all the systems they have in place for collecting data are spot on – All in all, Fairmile is a slick organised company who I’m sure will continue to grow and succeed
