Kreston Reeves have been our auditors since February 2014 when they were Spofforths LLP. With our tender process we were looking for a local provincial firm that was partner-led, able... More to provide a full and concise audit service as well as offering us a quality payroll bureau. Kreston Reeves have delivered on this year after year. We have always found our audit partner, Mrs Sarah Ediss, and her team, very professional and knowledgeable of both UK accounting standards and the SORP. Crucially, they understand how a school works which is very important to a busy Bursar! I would have no hesitation in recommending Kreston Reeves to any independent school.
