Dionne has been part of CDT for many years now. I consider her as part of the team even though she is on the periphery. Her attention to detail is second to none and shines through in the information she presents each month, from management accounts, to salaries, VAT returns, end of year accounts, Corporation Tax computations, company minutes and generally looking after the financial prosperity of the company going forward. Her calm approach and looking further ahead really helps me.

Dionne has been our accountant now for over 6 years. In that time, Dionne has helped and guided my business in good times and not so good times with honest and helpful advice.  I would whole-heartedly recommend Dionne and DS Small Business Help to anyone who wants to work with a trusted advisor who can help your business grow.

Dionne has provided accountancy services to Bicester Methodist Church for several years, including payroll and pension support and Independent Examination of the annual accounts. She has always been reliable and responsive. During my time as Treasurer, I personally have found her helpful and patient in explaining things to a layman. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of DS Small Business Help Ltd.

I recently set up a new company and was quite daunted by the amount of legal and financial work that is required. Dionne has been a godsend in helping to navigate all of the complexity that goes with establishing a new business from scratch. Over and above the day-to-day business of compiling the accounts and tax returns, etc, she has also provided valuable advice to help me better run my business. I am a very happy customer and am looking forward to growing my business over the coming years with Dionne’s expertise to help me make the best choices.

Dionne began working on my accounts 10 years ago, helping me set up the accounting side of my small part time business in a very tax efficient and simple way, saving me time and money over many years due to getting it right at the outset. She was and is incredibly accessable and helpful, dealing with my questions and queries in a professional and helpful manner – tailoring her answers to my level of understanding, so I always felt involved, informed and comfortable with how the accounts are run.

At the end of the day, you have to sign off that the accounts are true, but at the same time in complex matters you have to trust your accountant that the advice you are given is correct. Dionne always gave me the confidience to feel that my accounts would bear inspection on the difficult technical issues while at the same time claiming what I was entitled too while not overstepping the mark. If you would like accounts that are true, fair, give you the allowances you are entitled to while at the same time staying well within the rules, ask Dionne.
