We chose to move our accountancy needs to Tait Walker some years ago, and, quite frankly, we haven't regretted our decision for one minute. Their contribution at our Board Meetings has invariably been appropriate and beneficial while their advice on R&D Tax Credits has really paid dividends. Ultimately, we are delighted to be working so closely with a North East based practice and we would hope to continue to do so for many years to come.
