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.

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
