"Our industry had a 'spot check' by HMRC. Naturally, I was very worried. I can't thank the team at Hamilton Wood & Co. enough.

"As a business owner, I very rarely get a spare moment. I was encouraged to talk to Simon at Hamilton Wood and Co. to see if the improvements to our back-office functions and processes might qualify. After a quick conversation by phone I was assured that whilst not all my activities did qualify, that some of them did and we could move forward on them. I was involved for less than 2hrs over a 12 week period and got a playout in no time at all."
