Harry Christophers of “The Sixteen”

_MG_3626kbw“My previous accountant was perfectly competent” says Harry Christophers – Founder and Director of The Sixteen – www.thesixteen.com , one of the finest classical music ensembles in the world.  “He prepared and filed my accounts on time, kept me on the right side of the law, and made sure I paid my taxes promptly.  The trouble was that I dreaded doing my accounts because I was scared stiff of the amount of tax I was going to have to pay. There never seemed to be a light at the end of the tunnel.”

“One meeting with Brendan completely transformed my life. A lot of that has to do with the personal touch; one to one meetings where from the outset he listened carefully to what my business was about, considered the alternatives, and then made positive suggestions explaining how we could work together to improve things.”

“The thought of ever enjoying a meeting with one’s accountant was complete anathema to me, but now I actually relish the prospect of meeting up with Brendan.  He speaks in language which I understand; and there is excellent banter. But importantly I’m already a few thousand pounds better off than before. In fact I am in the best financial position I have ever been in.  Brendan doesn’t just treat me as an isolated individual but is also concerned and involved in the welfare of the rest of our family.”

“I assume that James Magee does all the other stuff OK, but I don’t suppose I’ll know unless I end up in jail.  But the team all seem to know what they’re talking about, they’re a pleasure to work with, and they just give me confidence that I’m running the business well, and taking best advantage of the opportunities available to me.”
