We’ve had a few accountants over the years for our business. But none have come close to the advice and support we get from Obdale. It’s not just about wrapping up a year end, they are with you all the way through. Helping support your financial requirements, to tax advice. Dean really goes out of his way to not only understand your business and it’s needs, but gives excellent accountancy & tax expertise to help your business. Just a wonderful company to work with. We would highly recommend Obdale to help support you.

By far the best accountants i have used, i was with my old accountants for 7 years but was getting a substandard service. I was always reluctant to move because of how much work i thought was involved, but Dean and team made this a pain free experience and everything was sorted within weeks. Dean and team have helped me plan ahead with several businesses and save money! would highly recommend to anyone. People like Obdale are few and far between these days! 5*

I got in touch with Dean through one of my own clients,  as I was using another accountant at the time but it was time for a change. After meeting Dean it was very clear this guy knew what he was talking about. Dean is very helpful , very efficient , and points you in the right direction. Always on hand to help. After chatting with various business owners it was clear they needed a more hands on accountant so I sent them to Dean to sort out their accounts. Let me tell you they are very happy with the service Dean provides. I would highly recommend if you are looking for an accountant, and you would not be disappointed with the service Dean provides.
