Makinson & Co were recommended to me when I set up "E2 Services" in 2004. At that time, I was based from home and operated as a sole trader. Since those early days, both Craig & Keith have provided excellent advice and support as the business has grown & our requirements have changed over the past 8 years. Makinsons now provide all accountancy support to the E2 Group of Businesses & I would whole heartedly recommend their services to any local business who require professional, personable accountancy support.

As a company we have been using Makinson's for over 65 years. Obviously the personnel in both our businesses has changed over those years, but the service we receive from them is second to none. What I really like is the fact they still offer old fashioned service but with modern and forward thinking accounting practices. We have obviously got to know Craig, Keith and the team very well over the years but despite being an old established company, their approach is very forward thinking and they really take the time to understand our business and what we are trying to achieve. The accuracy of their work goes without saying, but they also help us with our strategic analysis and cash flow planning and that helps us run our business in the most efficient manner. We often present them with various scenarios - investments in equipment we are planning etc - and the speed at which they analyze the situation and provide us with the information we need to base those decisions on always amazes me. Craig will make a scenario that I have been pondering on for weeks seem incredibly simple and I always wish I had spoken to him sooner! We use Makinsons for our payroll, book keeping, accounts preparation and filing, as well as strategic analysis and cash flow planning. It's very reassuring knowing that we have them to look after these things for us and I could not recommend them highly enough!"
