CG, Plano, Texas


Having left HM Forces my wife and I we opted to take-on a busy franchise delivering award-wining organic fruit and veg and needed advice, guidance and support in a host of areas. Wisdom was recommended to us. Wisdom gave us sensible, impartial advice during our pre-purchase business research / planning and then steered us through the formation of our company. When we took over the business and commenced operations he provided an outstanding level of support; this has continued but changed subtly as time has progressed and our abilities grew. His specialist assistance in early days allowed us to concentrate on the basics of our business and, as our own understanding grew he facilitated our taking-on more bookkeeping processes ourselves, without overloading us. Having Wisdom in the wings looking after our interests has been comforting.

Gareth & Gill, Dorset


As a new limited start-up company, we were looking for a well trusted accountant to help us with advice and knowledge of how best to run and grow our business. Wisdom gave a lot of time and effort in helping us prepare contracts and in setting up our VAT and PAYE account systems. Business has been going well, and now in our 4th year of trading we have seen the company grow by over 700%. I am not sure of what could have been done any better or any faster than the service which Wisdom provided.

Jonathan, Marlow


Wisdom set up and helped me run my limited company. He allowed me to identify and organise my company in goings and outgoings including personal expenses made on behalf of the company that maximised the efficiency of my limited company. My company turns over a small profit annually and the work done by Mr Da Costa to assist this has been very satisfactory.

Kapil, Milton Keynes


It was clear to me that in starting a new business I might require some external tax consultancy to begin with but I was naively unaware of just how understated that estimation was. Wisdom Da Costa brings the high level of acumen of his big business past to the small business' table, and that is invaluable. With the ability to always keep his eye on the ball -- be that the many HMRC deadlines, optimised remuneration strategy or practical bookkeeping tips -- he has made sure neither party has dropped it. A growing, stable and tax compliant concern. We have no anxieties now about the state of our accounts or our tax liabilities.

Rob, Fishguard


I was a new business in need of guidance, being a Journalist self employed for the fist time. Wisdom helped me step by step through my self assessment and going forwards. He did all the hard work for me as I had no idea where to start. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome and will be using his services going forward.

Laura, London


Being self-employed, Wisdom sat down with me and went through everything, gave me some useful information and some personal forms to keep my accounts up to date. He also chases me when I need to get things in order - and is very patient! I can be a little disorganized and last minute and he is very flexible and fits in with that. We also have a good relationship. Because of him, I always get my returns in on time and feel confident that everything is in order.
