“As a first-time business owner, I was looking for an accountant who was not only knowledgeable but also dependable and provided value for money. I feel I have found that with BWB. The staff are courteous, diligent and excel at demystifying some of the finer nuances of my company’s accounts. My first year of business has definitely been less stressful as a result of them. I feel confident that my company and personal accounts are in good hands with BWB and would highly recommend their services; especially for small business owners.”

Chermac Rolle, Owner, Meliorific Ltd – October 2016

“I approached BWB some 6 years ago when my business Nationwide Pharmacies Ltd was just an idea on paper. BWB was recommended to me as a small but very efficient firm of accountants. Due to the fact I was about to launch a start-up venture I was looking for an accounting solution that was not only efficient but also economical. As it turned out BWB fulfilled both of those criteria. Better still they have provided what I consider to be a unique mix of excellent accounting services combined with friendly advice and support. In fact over the past 6 years the whole team at BWB have made a most definite contribution to the success and growth of my business. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody who is looking for excellent accounting services.”

David K Harrison, CEO, Nationwide pharmacies Ltd – September 2016

“I have known and worked with the team for many years in previous companies, before they established BWBCA. I find them helpful, responsive, proactive and professional. Moreover, they will listen to their clients and openly engage with them to provide real help. This is “added value” in my view. I would recommend them to provide accountancy services to any company, and their specialty is working closely with the smaller and micro SMEs who would really benefit from BWB’s services which are very affordable.”

Mike Deacon, Managing Director, Asset Based Finance and Leasing Ltd – June 2016

“Sharon is a thorough professional who is clear and decisive in her approach and also provides first class advice and good customer care.

Sharon is always contactable, at the strangest of hours on occasion. All services carried out in understandable English, which for me is one of the most important aspects.”
