“Liddell and Crook are a fantastic accounting team. They are professional and skilled accountants, trustworthy and easy to talk to. They take time to explain our accounts for us and they offer training sessions on using Xero.

It’s important for them that we understand what is going on and I have been inspired to pay more attention to our bookkeeping and as a result our profits are increasing steadily. How great is that?”
