Making A Difference
Creaseys has been a source of trusted advice for Tottingworth Farms – stretching back well over 20 years – acting not only as accountants and auditors, but as a source of general support. The practice’s chief executive Emma Roberts has been closely involved, enjoying the close working relationship.
Help provided has included a successful application for grant funding, the reworking of the Tottingworth Farms business plan, and the introduction of new accounts and wages software.
Tottingworth Farms’ director Sarah Wareham said: “Emma is one of those people you can talk with easily. She’s not an accountant who tries to baffle you. She is a very down to earth sort of person.”
One of the things Sarah appreciates most is the access to a wide variety of help from within Creaseys. “If I have got a problem I can just phone them up and chat it through. That’s why I would always stay with Creaseys,” she said.
