Marketing and Business Development Manager

The Classic Components Group have worked with Dafferns since the Group first set up their UK operations in 1999. Throughout that time Dafferns have proven themselves to be a valuable and dependable business partner on all business matters, keeping us compliant with local legislation and providing additional cross border advice when we need it. In recent years Dafferns helped us find a new accountant in Germany using their international connections.

The Dafferns team are accessible and we are very grateful for Dafferns professional support. We would recommend them to anyone looking for an accountant and business advisor in the UK.

Nasser Shamsian – Global CFO – Classic Components Corp – Torrance, CA

We switched from a top 10 accountancy firm to develop in a short period of time a fantastic working relationship with Andy Bewick and Brian Jukes at Dafferns. They understood our business and delivered professional service in accounting, auditing, taxation and general business advice.

I don’t think we could possibly be in better hands, receiving the bespoke support you’d expect from a boutique firm with the technical back-up you’d expect from of a large accountancy firm.
