As a small business ourselves, we understand fully the need  for cost-effective, pragmatic and timely advice.  Our approach is to work in close partnership with you, to assimilate quickly to your particular environment, and to provide you with a speedy assessment of what we can do for your business.  Only then will we accept an engagement from you.  We will also be clear about what we can't help you with, and if appropriate help you identify further sources of specialised advice.
