Kreston Reeves has the hardest part of this audit. They are taking their console packs from these different entities in different jurisdictions, and they have to do their work on... More a very tight time schedule and then turn that over to the US auditors who have to do their work, and so at any given point Kreston UK team has the most critical role in successfully meeting that deadline. So far, in 15 years, they’ve never failed. That’s a pretty outstanding record. I don’t lose any sleep at night that they’re not going to meet the audit deadlines. Gary Yost, Chief Financial Officer, Global Critical Logistics LLC

We have an exceptional relationship with the team at Kreston Reeves. It really is a two-way partnership – they are almost part of the team. They have always been very... More transparent about costs, and we feel we get good value. I would not hesitate in recommending them. Ryan Fox, Head of Finance – Operations, Crew Clothing Company
We chose Kreston Reeves initially for help with a small piece of work in relation to succession planning for a family company and some advice on the setup of a... More new entity in collaboration with a leading UK based University (The University of Nottingham). We were surprised with the level of involvement from a senior member of the firm and the time that was taken to really understand our business even in the very small initial pieces of work. As would be expected Kreston Reeves helped with the technical aspect of setting up a new company and have also become auditors for that company but more importantly, given all the initial time that the team, especially Andrew Griggs, spent getting to know the business has meant that they have been able to provide more holistic advice and guidance and as a result they are now very much trusted advisors. This has meant we have spoken to them in relation to employee options schemes, setup of an EU based company post Brexit amongst other things. It very much feels like we could contact someone at Kreston Reeves and receive impartial but informed advice that fully considers the corporate structure of our organisation. It is not cookie cutter advice but tailored to our needs. Our previous advisor was a smaller firm than Kreston Reeves and didn’t have the global reach. Kreston Reeves have been able to offer globally focused advice to support our company who have significant trade in both the EU and USA. Kreston Reeves stand out though in the approach taken to really get to know our organisation they are also willing to give considered and evidence based views. KR have made a difference as they have assisted us with setting up our organisation to support future growth. On a personal level I feel that the relationship with Andrew means I have someone who I am able to pick-up the phone to in order to get considered, relevant and thoughtful advice. Andrew is also not afraid to challenge initial ideas and on a number of occasions this challenge has led to an enhanced end result. David Woolger, Managing Director of Cerca Magnetics Limited and Magnetic Shields Limited
I have worked with many firms before and this is one of the best, if not the best relationship that I have known – all the way down the line.... More Everyone we have dealt with has always been very helpful. One of the things we needed was that sounding board for expert advice; to be able to ask questions about detail. Michael and his team were extremely pro-active in that respect, and they work very well with us. The communication has always been excellent. Colin Stevenson, Finance Director at ABM UK

Since joining DAI Global Health in 2018, I have worked with Kreston Reeves as they have been auditing our 2018 financial statements as well as providing other services. Alison and... More her team were very responsive throughout, keeping us informed of progress and flagging any issues at an early stage. For the audit, one particular challenge was our office move. We relocated over 50 miles away, two months before our financial year-end which also resulted in some staff turnover. Kreston Reeves’ adaptability and understanding meant this was not an issue for the audit. Simultaneously to this Kreston Reeves were able to accommodate an earlier reporting deadline, driven by our US reporting requirements. David Keen, Financial Controller, DAI Global Health Limited

Kreston Reeves have been our accountants and auditors from the outset, and have just completed the first full audit of the company’s accounts and those of its parent companies. This... More work has been led by Alison Jones, with the assistance of other members of the team especially Katy Long. Kreston Reeves have also been responsible for the preparation of the group’s VAT returns and tax computations, and have provided payroll services and general accounting and financial systems advice. Until we were in a position to take it inhouse they also prepared the company’s management accounts. Throughout the relationship the work has been carried on with professional efficiency. Practical assistance and advice has always been available when needed. I have especially been impressed by the care taken in planning our first audit so that it has been completed on time despite intervening difficulties. When problems have arisen pragmatic solutions have been found. Their advice in relation to audit issues and the responsibilities of directors has been clear and always helpful. The result is that a process which I approached with some trepidation has proved not to be nearly as stressful as I feared. I would recommend Alison and her team without reservation.

We used Kreston Reeves for the first time with our 2020 audit. From the time that we appointed them as auditor, to the present day, they have been extremely helpful... More and supportive to us. A first year audit is always difficult, especially in the current Covid-19 environment. Despite this, the audit was completed to the agreed time scale. Throughout the course of the audit, documents were uploaded onto their user-friendly portal, follow up “Teams” calls were made to clarify any questions. All in all, I feel that the audit proceeded smoother than in previous years when we used a Big 4 auditor. I would be happy to recommend Kreston Reeves, as auditor, to other companies.
