I have worked with Joel for about ten years and when he decided to set up Elite, I immediately moved my business to his accountancy practice. Joel is different to most of my previous accountants - he is responsive, he chases me up and not the other way around; if he says it will be done tomorrow it is! Obviously he has lots of experience and expertise but what makes him stand out is you are confident that he will respond quickly and accurately plus he has saved me lots of money in taxation!

I would highly recommend Elite Accountancy Services Ltd, they have been invaluable with their support and advice over the past 5 years. Knowing that Joel is looking after both the company and my best interests whilst managing all the financial compliance has been a fantastic weight off my mind. Having accurate and up to date management information each month has helped me to really develop the business and improve profitability.

Joel has provided advice and support to both my business and to me personally for some years now. I see him as a key part of the business and we definitely wouldn’t have achieved the success we have without his outstanding support and advice. Knowing I can pick up the phone at any time, about any issues I have, is priceless.

Joel has been an exceptional Accountant providing support over and above in all aspects. Cadgwith Health is delighted with his professional and expert advice at all times – highly recommended.

Working with Joel at Elite is different to any other accountancy firm I’ve come across. They take on the bulk of the work leaving me to get on with the day to day. I know my numbers inside out each month and we speak regularly as and when needed so no question is left unanswered. The forward thought, planning and knowledge on offer far outshines any experiences with other accountants I have encountered.

Emily Harris, Senior Stairlifts Ltd

As a small business Elite Accountancy has been the perfect find for all of our accounting needs and business advice and support. Joel and his team place customer satisfaction at the top of their agenda and backed up with all of the knowledge you could ever need to know for starting or running a business means any enquiry or concern is swiftly dealt with and the support offered is second to none. As a potential new business owner or existing company/sole trader I couldn’t recommend Elite Accountancy enough as the perfect support for your new venture or as an alternative with an extremely approachable and professional manner.

I’ve known Joel now ,for getting on 2 years. I’ve been in business for almost 35 years myself and have had to change accountants on only a couple of occasions. So when I started to feel that my previous accountant failed to provide the response I required in a timely manor, reluctantly I decided to move on. From the outset I found Joel to be interested, forthcoming with practical advice and more importantly, for a small business responsive. When Joel announced that he was setting up his new practice, I had no hesitation but to move with him. The relationship between a business and its accountant is extremely important. During normal circumstances I don’t speak to my accountant that often, but when I do need advice, its important to know its available ,supportive and accurate. I’m confident I made the right move.

Brent Haigh, Embers Installations Ltd

I would highly recommend Elite Accountancy Services Ltd, the advice and training provided on Xero has enabled us to run our accounts very efficiently and easily. The ability to pick up the phone and call whenever we have needed assistance has been refreshing and it’s really helpful not having to worry about our finances. The service we have received with setting up the business has been second to none.

Andreas Kkais, Ninety Plus Ltd

I would highly recommend Joel for anybody looking at their internal Accounting Systems and for anybody looking to make a move to cloud Accounting for real time updates and the ability to better forecast. His knowledge and expertise are second to nore, all wrapped up in friendly down to earth speak. Highly recommend!

David Buckley, Advancery Ltd

I've just returned back from my meeting with Joel to go over this year's set of accounts. I just wanted to pass on a good word to you about Joel. He really is very good! He always gets back to me very quickly regarding any questions I have. very diligent in his work, and a nice person to boot. I can't really ask for more than that. 
Thanks also for suggesting the switch to Xero for my accounts. An hour of work each month categorising the transactions is certainly worth it for the benefits it brings.
