"We've been working with Donald Reid for about 9 months and I must say there are nothing but positive things to say about them! Being a clueless first-time business owner, they've been consistently patient with explaining (basic) things, understanding when it comes to a Start-ups needs and unbelievably quick to respond. Genuinely - unbelievable! I was recommended to work with Donald Reid by a friend and I must say, I'd recommend them to anybody that wants peace of mind their accounts are in good order"
