“Barford Owen Davies were the perfect team to provide financial support for the sale of Circle IT. They took time to understand our needs and brought real expertise and experience to the process. Emma and Simon consistently delivered the energy and enthusiasm at all hours of the day as needed, that was essential to get this deal across the line within very challenging timescales and late hours.”

Roger Harry - Founder, Circle IT

We were in need of good, simple and clear financial guidance. Barford Owen Davies came highly recommended, and we are so pleased we engaged with them. The whole team have been exceptional, not only on the financial figures, but also as people. They are a pleasure to work with. They provide

clarity, consistency and they care about our success. They listen, learn and adapt their communication

approach to suit our needs and our understanding of finance. We have no hesitation in recommending Barford Owen Davies and their team of experts.”

I was amazed how quickly they got their head around our situation, brought clarity for us and went extra-mile to not just meet the immediate needs brilliantly but also give us a strategic framework to sustain the positive changes they helped bring about.”

BOD have been incredibly helpful in terms of current understanding of our business and also planning for future growth. They make understanding the numbers easy. No question asked is too much for them.

I would highly recommend their services.”

Professor Amanda Kirby - CEO, DO-IT Solutions

“Barford Owen Davies came highly recommended, so were the obvious choice when we required support with our management accounting. Carrie and Nikki have exceeded our expectations and provided an exceptional service. They quickly got to grips with the management reporting, and have been pro-active in introducing efficiencies and improvements, as well as resolving issues along the way. With the monthly management accounts quickly in hand, they are now helping with additional projects, and just generally making our lives easier. Barford Owen Davies are an absolute pleasure to work with, and an asset to any team. We would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who is looking to strengthen their finance function.”

Richard Bacon – Chief Executive & Chapter Clerk, Llandaff Cathedral

“Emma and Simon have been outstanding in the way they have worked with our Bond business. Timely support and guidance are the Barford Owen Davies hallmarks, coupled with the willingness to challenge when required. They have been hugely important in helping us to both manage and report on business performance, as well as supporting the Board as we expand our equity base. Their service levels are outstanding, matched by their ability to provide powerful insight and creativity. A joy to work with!

Wayne Harvey – Chair, Bond Digital Health

“BOD have helped us put structure into our accounts so we can now see costs and profits associated with each product we sell. This has helped us make pricing or delivery adjustments to make them all profitable and also see where and how we can further improve and pursue more work. BOD are also completely approachable and contactable at all times through a WhatsApp group where we can ping little queries instead of clogging up inboxes and get quick replies from any one of the team that's available at that moment which really helps us get things done in the times we're actually working (we work flexi hours). They have also gone above and beyond in helping us with communications with HMRC at a time when the Government Gateway was unavailable to us. They spent hours on the phone with us (and HMRC) while we were passed between different departments and given conflicting information until we sorted things out. Without them, we would have felt overwhelmed by the whole situation and I'm pretty sure we would have given up trying. All these things put together make you feel like they really care about both you and your business and we're so happy to know that they have our backs.”

Marina Lois – Co-founder & Director, Bengo Media

“Working with Barford Owen Davies has been a breath of fresh air. The diverse skill sets that every member of the team offers is by far, second to none. Their professionalism, drive and motivation are infectious…whilst also finding the team very easy to work with. We have undoubtedly grown our business and increased our profitability with their help as well as enhancing our own skills along the way. A one stop shop for all your accountancy needs, we can certainly highly recommend BOD.”

Rhys Hoddinott – MD, Leka Systems Ltd

“Having been recommended by a friend, Barford Owen Davies have been instrumental in the opening of our restaurant. They have always been on hand when we need them and their wealth of experience has meant that nothing is too much of a challenge.”

Tom Simmons - Owner, Thomas

The team are professional, proactive and so easy to work with.  They have surpassed my expectations and I would highly recommend them to any business.”

Helen Arnold-Richardson - Former Managing Director, DO-IT Solutions

“I have had the benefit and pleasure of Carrie & Emma’s advice, expertise and company in various

guises for the last seven years. They have a great knack of delivering a very professional, timely and efficient service with a fresh, friendly and fun manner at all times. Big four training and experience with personable delivery!”

Nick Battersby - Former Owner and Director, Reid Lifting

“Finding an FD when you are a small business facing all the trials of growth is a risky and testing exercise. That FD is going to play a vital role in your success. The solution is to ask your network who they would trust with their business and that’s what I did. Barford Owen Davies were highly recommended, and Emma joined us and adds value to our team daily. We made the right move.”

Ian Bond - Co-Founder and CEO, Bond Digital Health

“We have been working with Emma and Carrie for many years throughout most of our businesses which range from Insurance, Manufacturing, Equestrian, Healthcare and Day Nursery. The team at BOD provide us with expert advice in relation to compliance, tax and HR together with compiling our annual accounts and returns. They have helped us implement a new accounting system and introduced new processes alongside. They are always professional and supply both information and advice in a prompt and efficient manner. I would highly recommend BOD Accountants.”

Heidi Sachs - Director, Modplan

Emma and Carrie have been a tremendous support to me with my businesses,  I have worked with them for over a 10 year period whereby they have provided great assistance for our own accounts and financial affairs, for the accounts of the blocks we manage and for our development business. I owe a great element of success of the businesses to them, they are extremely knowledgeable and efficient and have a five star service level. I would highly recommend them to another business whether it be a small or start-up business to a large multi-national company with millions of pounds of turnover.

Charlotte Burles Corbett - Managing Director, Parkmans

“Carrie and Emma have created a unique organisation that provides a client FD experience with a full team working in the background. This allows them to serve each client passionately and to get under the skin of the business to support their decision making. They feel like part of the team and each client is made to feel that they are the most important client. This is down to the hard work that Emma and Carrie have invested in building a likeminded team. Emma and Carrie are very clear about what services they provide and what they don’t - this is part of their success in supporting their customers effectively and honing their skills. Emma and Carrie have strong values and ethics and are a pleasure to work with.”
