Happy Clients


We have been a client of Alan’s since we opened Cateran Café in 2014.  We get great service and advice from him and this has helped us grow our business.  He provides us with impartial advice, extremely good tax planning, monthly accounts, year-end auditing, VAT returns and weekly and monthly  wages.  Running a small business is stressful and you need great support and this is provided by Alan in abundance. We would recommend ACG Accounting Services to any sole trader or small business looking for financial help.

ACG Accounting have been attending to my tax and accounting needs for several years now. Alan has always been efficient, helpful and very professional in all of our dealings. I find him to be very trustworthy which gives me peace of mind to get on with what I do best.

Amicable, Consciencous, Genuine.....three words which describe ACG Accounting Services to a tee. We've employed the services of ACG for the last ten years and over that time there's always been someone at the end of the phone, email or Skype call to answer even the most trivial questions to put our minds at rest. We can't praise them highly enough and would recommend them to anyone in need of an accountant.

Jane & Hugh Wilson

A very valued part of our team. Alan and his team keep our books up to date and are always on hand to help with anything. They answer calls quickly, manage our accounts tremendously well and keep us in the right with everything we need to know. Never a problem too big or small, his all year round service to us is second to none. We have recommended Alan and his team’s services to many businesses and his reputation and knowledge is simply outstanding. Five stars all round! Excellent work

We have used A.C.G. accounting services for many years and have progressed from the old accounting system to digital over the past 2 years. We have had to make changes to the systems used because it is not a one size fits all situation, we have had help all along the way from Alan and now it has settled down to a very comfortable way of working. For any small business looking for a safe pair of hands to do the work we don't really want to do have a word with Alan, i'm sure you will appreciate the one to one service provided.

I have worked with Alan for some years now and the whole experience, from beginning to end, is far removed from your stereotypical accountant, thank goodness. Your business really is in incredibly safe hands and it will only get better as Making Tax Digital is implemented. He completely leads the field in his financial planning and delivery of what is required for your business. His no nonsense approach is perfect for getting things done, on time. It really is refreshing to find an accountant that doesn't use jargon speak, has a sense of humour and does exactly what he says!
