Testimonial from Lorraine Ashover at Minerva Procurement Consultancy Services Limited

"I have known the team at Langdowns DFK for over a decade initially as part of my professional network of lawyers, bankers and accountants, and latterly as my own accountants. 

When I started my business in 2010 I knew many accountancy practices who I could have chosen to look after me but Langdowns DFK was my first choice.  The team there are not only extremely professional, with expert knowledge and capabilities but are also an absolute pleasure to work with.  Alongside regular events, both technical and practical, they have a comprehensive website and issue frequent newsletters with an interesting mix of articles.  Their response times to any queries I have is always excellent and the advice always pragmatic.  What is particularly pleasing is that the standard of service is consistently high from director level through to the bookkeeper. 

Finally, my business is a procurement consultancy and we focus on reducing costs for our clients.  I benchmark all of my own suppliers from a pricing and service perspective and am delighted to say that Langdowns DFK represent phenomenal value for money.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing an accountancy service"
