Why is London such a good place to do businesses?
London is a globally diverse marketplace: its 8m inhabitants speak over 300 languages, and the capital’s accessibility by rail and air make it an ideal place for a start-up with big ambitions. Small- to medium-sized businesses make up 99.8% of all London’s private sector businesses, and employ almost half of London’s workforce. In a tough economy, SMEs are continuing to thrive, generating an annual turnover of £430 billion.

"Riz and his team are brilliant to work with. They're always so helpful and prompt in answering our queries. Nothing seems to bother them, even the silly questions I am prone to asking! Riz is also my financial alarm clock – reminding me of the dates and deadline we must act on, in his ever friendly and helpful way. I've dealt with a few accountancy firms over the years who don’t give anything approaching Riz's level of service. I would recommend Riz and his team to anyone looking for a professional, trustworthy accountant firm, and who demands a first-class service for their financial affairs."
