Two new managers for our London office

James McGill and Michael Wood, recently promoted to Manager, will be based primarily in our office in Victoria to support our growing number of London-based clients.

"My company has used DRG for a number of years. They are proactive and efficient with all aspects of their work. They keep on top of our tax and accounting requirements, and help with the development of our business strategy.

We view DRG as a key supplier and crucially a partner and would highly recommend the firm – in particular to other fast growing businesses."

David Folkman, Director

"I’ve worked with a number of accountants over the years and have never found another company who offers the same level of care, support and professionalism. They’re always on hand to offer advice and guidance, above and beyond the service that I pay for. I would recommend them wholeheartedly."

Joe Hill, Director

"Very supportive and friendly company from day one."

Outdoor Academy

"I have always worked as an employee so when I decided to set up my own business, I did not know where to start. DRG took the time to explain how working as a sole trader would be more beneficial to me setting up a limited company (which I had always thought was a requirement for running a business). They gave me practical advice on the records I need to keep as well as general guidance on setting up my business and helped me claim a large tax refund after my first year of trading."

Sole Trader

"I have been a client through a number of different ventures with DRG since 2007. They have proved the benefits of a local firm with Big 4 experience in providing sound business and tax advice by being accessible, having in-depth knowledge of my business and able to form good working relationships at different levels with me and my staff. We also enjoy the benefit of their excellent accountancy and payroll services. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."

Paul Dunn-Sims, Halcyon Home Care

"I have been extremely impressed with the service level and attention to my business."

Sherwood Event Services

"DRG provide excellent services to Extrinsica Global that enable us to focus on our priority – growing the business."

Extrinsica Global

Design & Technical Management

"We have used DRG since our incorporation. They have supported our development providing sound business advice on top of our accounting requirements.

They are proactive and helpful in responding to queries and I would recommend them to any prospective client."

Rob Farrow, Alchemy Fireworks Ltd

"Daniel and his team at DRG provide a friendly service and are always able to explain issues in clear terms."

Kensington Communication Consultants
