A personal recommendation is often the best way to find the specialist you need, whether it’s a builder or a financial professional.
So when Gerry Gay wanted expert help to turn his and wife Eileen’s optometry business into a limited company, and his solicitor suggested he contact HB Accountants, he was quick to give us a call.
Three years later, he’s more than happy that he took his solicitor’s advice – and has proved it by recommending HB to other people.
Gerry, an optician, and Eileen, an optometrist, set up their original practice 20 years ago and now have a team of nine based at two Hertfordshire outlets of E & G Optical Services Ltd, in Broxbourne and Cuffley.
Their day-to-day accountancy is handled in-house, but HB Accountants deal with what Gerry calls “the clever stuff”, including tax returns to the Inland Revenue, tax planning and pension planning.
Gerry says: “HB are an extremely helpful, professional company, whose expertise and tax knowledge is renowned.
They are always at the end of the phone if you need advice and have a very user-friendly approach, which helps.
They are also proactive in bringing us up to speed with useful information, for example the updates that are sent out after the Chancellor’s Budget each year.
I have found them excellent in every way and they do nothing less than I would expect from people of their calibre.”
