Longmires went above and beyond the service I have had from previous accountancy firms in that they did everything from setting up my company, liaising with my factoring partner, to accompanying me to various negotiations and legal meetings required when selling my previous business (often at short notice). Emails and phone calls are always returned promptly, I've had no issues with HMRC dealings as Longmires ensure that all returns are correct and on time. And all for a fixed monthly fee which is very competitive. 
 
Sarah Perry - Sarah Perry Ltd 
 
 
Cheeky Cherubs is a not for profit children's learning centre established over a year ago in Urmston Manchester. Before we were introduced to Sarah and Dathan at Longmires, our future was uncertain and our project was coming to an end. Sarah and Dathan have helped us to see light at the end of the tunnel and we can see a very positive future for the business which was created with the communities’ interest at heart.
