Gino and his team at Sterling Grove Accountants came highly recommended to me.

They provide friendly, professional accountancy services to me and my company.

Always on hand to answer my queries, no matter how small or complex and i’ve found them to be, straight forward, reassuring and invaluable to me. I would highly recommend them.

Victoria Jones Director
Victoria Stout Limited

We have been using Sterling Grove Accountants for the past three years and could not be happier with the service. Gino has been absolutely fantastic – he is always on hand to help and has been incredibly accommodating, providing hugely helpful advice throughout.

We can’t recommend Sterling Grove Accountants highly enough and thank them massively for all of their help so far!

Alex Sever Director
Pegasus Tutors

Gino and the friendly team at Sterling Grove Accountants have been a tremendous help whenever I have needed.

This last year has been a particularly difficult one for us with the downturn and we have needed extra advice which has been quickly received. Also the year end books are always turned round quickly which is essential for planning tax liabilities.
