I would definitely recommend Boox

I am new to the world of business and have recently signed up with Boox. I have found the staff at Boox to be extremely helpful, patient and accommodating. They provide clear guidance and if are unsure about any aspect of any queries they look into it and get back to you…

5 star review – 11th April 2018

A very positive experience so far!

They’ve been prompt in handling all accounting needs necessary for a self-employed contractor and proactive in their approach to dealing with their customers.

5 star review – 30th March 2018

Excellent app and service

Was referred to this company by a client of mine. I was transitioning from being a sole trader to a Limited Company. Really professional service and they are always there to help me with a query. I find the app really easy to use and they are just at the end of a phone if I’m not sure with anything. Would recommend – and have done!

Excellent, friendly, professional service

What started off as “good” a few years ago has quickly developed into “superb”. I have no qualms recommending these guys. They’re proactive, friendly, communicative and professional. They’re especially patient, as I tend to worry a lot and stress about detail when it comes to accounting, but it never seems to phase them.
