I was very lucky to have chosen to work with Martyn and Dawn. I found their advice very professional, I also found their services prompt and efficient. I will certainly be using them in the future.

I have no hesitation in recommending Aurora Chartered Accountants. Dawn and Martyn offer a superb professional, friendly and affordable service. As a start up business, it can sometimes be overwhelming making sense of tax and expenses but Dawn makes the whole process a lot easier to understand. She is always on hand to answer any questions and offer a level of support that is second to none. Thank you for a first class service that has certainly made my first year in business a lot easier.

I really didn't know much about the world of finance but I didn't find someone to guide me through until I found Aurora Chartered Accountants. They were very helpful and they didn't mind going the extra mile for me.

I started a Kumon franchise 3 years ago and reached the stage where I needed guidance in order to put in place efficient systems to deal with staff wages and financial administration. I first met Dawn in September 2011 and she has provided a very efficient and professional service. As a sole trader from a non-financial background, I feel more confident that with Dawn’s support I can confidently manage new challenges as the business grows.

Dawn is a friendly and professional individual who listens and offers invaluable advice and support. She is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to discuss your business at length. It is a delight to do business with Dawn and Martyn and I would have no hesitation in recommending Aurora, Chartered Accountants.

Sarah Brown - Pink Link Ladies (Bolton)

When I became self-employed I was lost at the thought of tax returns and self assessments. I wasn't generating a great deal of income and didn't think I would be able to afford to employ an accountant. A friend recommended Aurora, Chartered Accountants to me as she had had a great experience using them herself. From the first phone call they offered me simple, friendly advice to help me get straight and at a very reasonable cost. They made everything seem very clear and took a great weight off my shoulders. I would highly recommend using Aurora, Chartered Accountants to anyone, especially those who are thinking of starting up businesses or becoming self-employed. Thank you again.

Doing great work at Aurora, it is the first year I have used Martyn and Dawn for accountancy services and it won’t be the last. Give them a try. I am sure you won’t be disappointed. Accountancy with that personal touch.

Aurora, Chartered Accountants have provided a fantastic service over the past few months when we have really needed help. We are a reasonably new business and what we knew about accounts could be written on the back of a postage stamp. The team at Aurora did everything for us with no fuss. We went to Aurora with any queries, these were answered immediately and the efficiency of the team is second to none. An extremely reliable company that Fit4Kidz would have no problems recommending to anybody who needs or would like to change accountants. We are most definitely staying on-board with Aurora as we could not have asked for a higher level of quality, help and efficiency, Thank you Aurora!

The help we received from Dawn of Aurora, Chartered Accountants was just invaluable. Such a personal service, and in all the years I have run a business, I’ve never had such an accommodating, helpful accountant who goes to such great lengths, to make sure that each and every one of your accounting needs are met. I’ve never been fond of accounts, but working with Dawn has made life much easier in all honesty. I would truly, and regularly do, recommend Aurora, Chartered Accountants to anyone, whether they are setting up in business, or have been trading for a number of years. This company can make a real difference, and take away any accountancy concerns.

Since we became a client, Dawn has provided calming, emphatic, professional advice and a lot of 'hand holding'. We never feel that our many questions are silly. She has introduced us to simple workable systems and tax efficient solutions including the set up of trusts.

Rather than 'dreading' seeing the accountant we look forward to our meetings with Dawn and would definitely recommend her.

I have been using Aurora Chartered Accountants for the last 5 months, for my rental property and for my full time job. Dawn and Martyn pointed out ways I can reduce taxes and boost my income in legitimately creative ways. They are always there to answer my questions when I make new investments or how to do effective tax planning for my small business. Nothing is too much trouble even coming to my home or inviting me to theirs if needed. An excellent, personal and valued service.
