Choosing a firm of accountants to work with is an important decision, whether you are an individual, small business or larger corporate.
Of course you want accuracy, efficiency, reliability and well-informed views. But more than that, you’d like a team of people who are good to work with, interested in you and your business and who go the extra mile to keep you ahead of the game, delivering insight and exploring opportunities.
That’s Royston Parkin. Very good with numbers, great with people.
