We’ve been working with EST on our HR and accounting. We’ve had a great experience. It’s so useful to be able to pick up the phone and chat through any problem that we’re having or any question that we have. The whole team are great at communicating and always willing to help. I’ve already recommended EST to so many people – I’d happily recommend them to anyone. Cheers Marc

I recruited EST Accountants earlier this year after doing quite a bit of research into various accountancy firms both in Cardiff and further afield. Barry, Lauren and the rest of the team have been outstanding at every step of the way in helping me to get my accounts in order. They have gone over and above in many ways and I feel confident that as my companies grow into a substantial organisation, EST Accountants will be able to offer the professional service that I require. Professional, personable, helpful. I highly recommend this company.

I first met Lauren, from EST Accountants, at Ignite Cardiff (an evening of talks that EST sponsor). We got chatting about work (as sadly most of us do these days) and what struck me most was unlike so many saurian accountants I've chatted with in the past she was able to chat about the intricacies of small business accountancy, in the kind of language that I could understand. Pretty quickly, I was signed up and since then I have genuinely been blown away with the service Lauren has provided by EST. It seems there are no swerve-balls I can throw that will phase Lauren; trust me I've tried (albeit not intentionally!). We're now a few months down the line and it could be appropriate, at this juncture to have a 'Before' and 'After' set of pictures of my accounts. Before: muddled, bloated and under prepared; After: ordered, slimmed down and ready for what's next. So, if you've not given your finances as much TLC as they deserve, I heartily recommend you get in touch with Lauren Burt at EST.

"We have been working with Barry for the last two years and at last we have found a true partner to manage our accounts. Barry is very approachable and always on hand to help and that is not always the case in my experience. His staff are extremely diligent and professional who are always on hand to help with advice and any issues we may have. Thanks Barry and Team and I look forward to a long term relationship with EST."
Steve Matthews - Foresee Group
"We recently acquired a business and were lucky to have EST Accountants advise us throughout the process. They were fantastic and have helped us with the rapid expansion of our business to ensure that everything ran smoothly.
Previous accountants simply handled basic compliance and gave us very little advice to help us with the expansion. EST were able to advise us on all of our accounting needs and were always available to answer our questions and queries.
EST implemented the cloud accounting software Xero so that we could assimilate its use into the business, making the management of our accounts easy, accessible and simple to use. The software has been invaluable as we continue to grow the group. Tasks that were previously time consuming are now quick and far more manageable allowing us time to concentrate on the day to day running of the business. They were very thorough in ensuring that the business was running efficiently and was as up to date as possible.
We can't thank them enough for their outstanding service."

"Barry has provided a great service to Jöttnar. The company has significant investment, strict management accountancy reporting disciplines and multiple currency considerations. Barry has handled these with ease and accuracy. His key difference is his willingness to provide the all-hours, peripheral "value add" in all areas of our accounting advice. His enthusiastic embracing of modern, cloud based ways of working has also been a key enabler. He has proved an excellent partner for us"
Stephen Howarth - Managing Director & Co-Founder at Jöttnar
"Barry has worked as my personal and company accountant for several years. The advice I have received both personally and for my companies has been sound and well thought through. Barry was instrumental in taking my company (Atia Communications) through Due Diligence and forward onto sale. I continue to work with Barry as my company accountant for Centric Resource and rely heavily on his advice as that company continues to expand"
Patrick Copping - CEO at Centric Resource
"As a fairly new and growing Company operating in a specialist technical field, we needed an Accountancy firm that understood our needs, and were enthusiastic towards the future direction of the Company, giving advice with tax, VAT, and also giving advice with finance to help with the Company’s future growth. Using a Cloud based Accounting package, EST is able to keep an eye on the accounts remotely, and calling into the office regularly, to keep up with developments. It’s as if the Company has a full time accountancy department within our organisation, but on a fixed and affordable annual cost, leaving us to build up, and run the business without worries."
Tudor Ellis - Camsat Ltd
We have found him to be very professional and approachable. He has taken the time to understand our business, which has enabled him to add value and help us with other areas of our business, as well as the key financial areas. Barry has also worked very closely with our staff to help produce timely and accurate results. I would certainly recommend his company to any other organisation."
