As a busy design studio, we have little time for for anything else other than helping our clients. So naturally, we are wrapped when our accountants, CHN Herold Ross, consistently make the preparation of all our end of year bookwork simple and quick.
When the time comes to sign the documents, we even get a practical review of the past year and what action we can take for the future to minimise our tax and maximise our profits.
