What our clients say...

I have been a client of Usman’s for many years. He is very professional and reliable always responds quickly to my queries. I can highly recommend his accountancy services.

Sayeed is a highly professional accountant, his effective strategy & planning saved me from paying a hefty amount of tax which I would have paid should I had not taken his advice.

I would highly recommend F&C Accountants

Usman is highly professional, efficient & highly knowledgeable accountant. His effective tax consultancy and accountancy services had made us save and plan tax. We highly recommend him.

Yes this chap has helped me with my accounts and has done a fantastic job Well recommended Very pleased with the outcome

I highly recommend Mr Usman Nazir as an accountant. His in-depth knowledge and experience helped me immensely and with my tax return. He quickly took the stress out of the process for me and worked through my finances promptly making me savings that I would have not been able to achieve by myself. I am very thankful now to be on his books as I know now I have his experience and input for the next time making the process so much easier.

Highly recommended, he listens to his clients! I am extremely grateful for Usman’s sound advice and support over the last six months. I see him regularly at our networking group and one day I expressed my frustration of my then accountant. Usman offered to help with no obligation or payment, so I gave him access and I quickly realised he was going to be a great asset so I switched accountants in June this year. Usman liaised with HMRC to do a review of my accounts dating back to 2017. He kept me informed at all stages and ultimately it allowed me to free up cash to reinvest in the business. I am extremely grateful and can safely say Usman always has the client’s interest at heart and makes them feel at ease even when deadlines are due. If you are frustrated with your current accountant or you’re not getting strategic financial and business advice, I would recommend Usman in a heartbeat knowing your business growth is his primary objective. Thank you Usman, I am forever grateful and will continue to highly recommend you and your team!

Mike is a very knowledgeable and professional accountant. He has been my accountant for a long time.

We would highly recommend Mike and his team for their exceptional services
