“We moved our accounting requirements to Chris Smith some years ago. He came highly recommended. We were very pleased as Chris took time to understand our business. So when Chris decided to set up CRS Accountancy in 2020 we had no hesitation in transferring from his previous firm and supporting him in his new venture. We feel we are in safe hands.”
David Billingham, Director - Equilibrium Finance

“Chris has been my accountant since I established my business in 2005 and I continue to be impressed with his proactive approach and knowledge. He is down-to-earth but still very professional and explains things in a manner to ensure that I understand them, especially when it comes to matters of tax. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris and CRS Accountancy.”
