"Yellow Dot have been working with David, Sara and his team since 2004. During this time, we have grown from 1 company to a sizeable group and are continuing to grow in an organic way. David has held our hand through our expansion and has acted as an unofficial Financial Director on many occasions. David has provided expertise enabling us to structure and restructure the Group, making use of tax advantages, keeping us up to date with current legislation.

David has developed good relationships with our Bank Manager and has provided links to other Financial Advisors, as we have required. He has provided us with a total Accountancy package, including late and early phone calls, a sounding board for various ideas, business opportunities, tax planning opportunities and tremendous 'Peace of Mind'!!".

"LST Projects have been clients of David Tilsley Ltd Accountants since 2004. Since then they have carried out all of our accountancy work including tax returns and general advice.
They have also assisted with the financial aspects of the sale and acquisition of business property and the purchase of another business which is now owned by LST Projects. They have also dealt with matters relating to the retirement of two of the partners and handled the inheritance tax implications of this move.
We have always found David and his team to be friendly and professional and we do receive a very personal service. It is good to know that we can phone them at any time regarding accountancy questions and know that they will be quickly and thoroughly answered. We have no hesitation in recommending David Tilsley Ltd to other potential clients."

Mr R Tuffin
Senior Partner, LST Projects (Construction)

HMC Enterprises Ltd "I have been a Client of DTL since 2003 and I have very much appreciated the professionalism demonstrated by the team over that time. I particularly enjoy the prompt response to any of my queries, however minor, and I am extremely re-assured that I have an Accountant that is working with my best interests at heart whilst ensuring full tax and statutory compliance."

Ms H Clarke

C J Garden Services "C J Garden Services have been using David Tilsley Ltd for three years having previously used an unregistered `one man band` Accountant. David and his team provide an excellent service with email and telephone enquiries answered very promptly.
The monthly newsletters they send out are very informative and useful.
I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending David Tilsley Ltd to anyone thinking of changing Accountants or hiring one for the first time.
The help and support I have received has been invaluable and using a chartered firm has not worked out any more expensive than my previous Accountant."

Mrs C Hartnell
Partner, CJ Gardens (Gardens and Grounds' Maintenance)

"I chose David Tilsley as I wanted an accountant who would appreciate the issues faced by the small business but would have more resources than the one man operation. David and his team provided excellent advice on how to structure our business helped us through the process of vat registration and have now prepared two sets of business and personal accounts.
David and his team are always available, by phone and email, and give invaluable advice on a variety of matters. I know up front what my accountancy charges will be and through acting on advice from David's team, my charges have come down."

Mr J Dunkley
Founder, Grayrock Limited (Healthcare Training)

"We have used DTL as our accountants for many years. The reason we chose the company and continue to use them is because they offer a professional, responsive and efficient service, working with us as part of our team to achieve our specific goals as an organisation. They take the time to understand what we do. Key to any business partnership are relationships based on mutual trust, support, friendship and dialogue, all of which David's team exhibit in working closely with us on a day to day basis, not only to service requests but also to resolve queries and issues. They also guide and advise us in the development and improvement of our practices. Taking payroll as an example, we are very happy to outsource this function, confident in Nicky's expertise and reliability. Nicky is proactive in dealing with all queries, anomalies and any slip ups we may make inadvertently. This service, as with the other areas handled by David Tilsley, provides us with peace of mind that we are meeting our statutory obligations; that these key non-core business elements are being provided in a professional manner and that help and support are always available to us".

alt"David and his team have provided excellent support for GRP Tools Limited since it was first registered by David in 2006. Our main contacts have been Tracey for accounts and Chris for wages. They are always professional and efficient in all our dealings which have included an acquisition, a grant application as well as the more mundane such as wages, management accounts and tax returns. It is great to have the assurance that on any accounts issue there will be a knowledgeable and friendly response just a call away."

alt "HRM Ltd, a specialised international hotel risk management company, started life on 1st July 2010 and our greatest stroke of luck was to meet David and his team a few months earlier. The advice we received on setting up the business in the most tax efficient way and creating the right accounting systems and procedures was invaluable.

Since then the overall service from David Tilsley Ltd has been exactly what we need with pro-active advice on a whole range of VAT and taxation issues, assistance and training on the use of the accounting software and a fast response to the inevitable one-off queries.

We regard David and his team as an integral part of our business and in our view this type of relationship is exactly what any business requires these days to help it flourish."
