A heartfelt thanks to you and your team (especially Helen )for going above and beyond to ensure my year end accounts were turned around at breakneck speed to help me secure a new mortgage. As ever I will continue to recommend your services and thoroughly appreciate your tax and accounting advice. Thank you again.

We recently required much information to support an EU funded grant application. Val & Kate responded swiftly to numerous requests for info which was well over and above the normal duties for us. We are always pleased with their work and would recommend them highly.

Excellent initial and ongoing advice and service. Absolute lifesaver.
Over the years I have asked Val Culley a few questions about diferent areas of business. Often because another accountant has told me it cant be done and I am to pig headed to believe them that I ask Val. Everytime Val has been open and honest and said Yes they are correct but.....With Val you get way more than just an accountant, as she states very clearly her business is so much more than that. I would highly recommend Culley Lifford and Hall every time. I know for a fact that if you can save money in your business Val will show you how.

On behalf of GemPort Jewellery I would like to take this opportunity of affording you this testimonial in recognition of the outstanding work you and your team have undertaken for our business.
As an established and well regarded accountant you have been known to me for several years via our networking connections.
However, in recent months it has been evident that out business is growing and you quickly recognised that an element of 'hand holding' was required by an accountant in order to take our jewellery business to the next level, as we had also achieved VAT and Ltd Company status.
Your attention to detail, immense expert knowledge in accounting and tax legislation and professional approach to business has left us in no doubt that we have made a very good decision in asking Culley Lifford Hall and particularly yourself and Kate Barker to handle our accounting affairs.
Already you have reduced one tax demand by nearly £2000 and a quarterly VAT return by nearly £1000.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your services Val to any business in need of an exemplary accountant.
Thank you Val, Kate and the team.

The team at Culley Lifford Hall are exquisite.
I am an owner managed business with personal property. From the very first meeting, Val and the team expertly guided me as to what my personal tax implications would be as well as my business. The team care about you and all of your accounts affairs, they give a truly holistic and business advisory approach.
I had worked with another accountancy firm before transferring to Culley Lifford Hall. I found it hard to get any information from them, was very unclear as to what I was able to attribute to my company accounts and even what the impact of taking dividends were.
I now have a healthier balance sheet and know the team will be there to answer any questions I might have. I can sincerely say that moving to Culley Lifford Hall is one of the best business decisions I have made since setting up golddust marketing.

Culley Lifford Hall - A very professional and outstanding service.

It is almost a year to the day since my old partnership was closed, it is now finally resolved. I really want to thank you for the part you played in this. Without your mentoring and advice I'm not sure it would ever have been sorted out.
A lot of people think accountants are all the same, I can tell you categorically that Culley Lifford Hall is not just like other accountants. You talk about adding VALue to a business and I could not agree more.
As a naive 20 something your guidance prevented us from enthusiastically paying double the value for the business we were buying. When we came to sell it years later your advice and considerable tax knowledge helped us to plan and structure the sale to achieve the optimum return.
Yes you are an accountant, but you are so much more than that, the expertise, advice and guidance you bring to any business is invaluable.
So thank you for 15 years of outstanding service.

Val & Team are reliable, knowledgeable, professional and passionate about service. First class company.
I have used Culley Lifford Hall Accountants for the last three years to do my company books and tax return and I must say, the service is second to none. Both Val and Kate have been really helpful, gave me good advice, and have dealt with everything very efficiently. I’m also particularly grateful to Val and Kate for recently dealing with a family matter at very short notice. They turned everything round very quickly for me, which was very much appreciated and helped me move things forward.
