We're proud of the kind things our clients have to say about us.

We understand that choosing a professional advisor is important. We also understand that you don’t just want to take our word for it. We regularly ask our clients for feedback on how we’re doing as it helps to drive us to improve and continue to meet the needs and demands of our clients.  

Words 'n' Wishes Limited

Neil Whittingham and the team at NRB have given our business invaluable advice and support since we started up in 2011. Starting a new business was a big challenge during a difficult commercial climate as you can imagine, however, NRB took the time to understand our business and Neil has been available to assist both commercially and personally with great results.

I have no hesitation in recommending NRB to friends, family and other company owners.

Lifting Gear Group

We, the Lifting Gear UK Group, have been a client of NRB since our incorporation in 2007. The many services they provide have given us the support and confidence needed to grow, achieving a position in the annual Hot 100 list of Lancashire most profitable SMEs demonstrates the level of expertise they can provide.

They are always on hand and have often taken calls out of hours if required. They have proved themselves time and again with expert knowledge and advice and are truly part of the Lifting Gear UK team.

I have been very impressed by the work of NRB and I am very pleased we made the decision to switch to their services from a different provider.

We receive a very proactive service at a cost effective rate, as well as getting the responses we need in a timely manner. Their advice is always helpful and transparent.

The team at NRB have assisted our business in many ways, always offering relevant and targeted advice in the best interests of the business whenever needed. We have a sizeable number of staff and the payroll team always go above and beyond and ensure that our payroll runs smoothly and on time.

We are glad we moved our payroll and accountancy requirements over to NRB and would have no doubts in recommending them to others looking for great service and value for money.

We first started to deal professionally with NRB 3 years ago after they had come highly recommended by an associated company within the Group.

NRB very quickly appraised themselves of our Group structure and soon “got to grips” with the various idiosyncrasies that are normally associated with a Group of Companies.

Over the last 3 years they have provided a first class audit service but, in addition, have been very pro-active in the professional advice that they have provided.

To sum up, NRB provide a first class professional service at a very competitive price and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in heartily recommending them to any SME company.

Link Contracting

NRB have supported our business since 2008 during some challenging times and also through significant growth and change.

The team are always willing to help and with their wide network of services and connections they have always ensured we have been provided with the best services possible. From tax planning, accountancy and audit services, legal and compliance issues and general day to day transactional queries we feel completely supported and valued. The customer care and work ethic of all the staff is exceptional.

We have a strong relationship with the team at NRB and they work hard to maintain this. We clearly have a choice in our accountancy services and we choose NRB.

Mason Owen Financial Services

We were considering an alternative software solution for our business accounting until we were introduced to NRB, but we were glad that we took their recommendation to move to Xero. 

We were assisted through the planning process, deployment and then the post implementation stages of the deployment of Xero by the team at NRB, who were always available to help with queries and provide guidance in how best to use and integrate Xero with other applications. 

We were greatly reassured by the professional team we dealt with and we are now seeing the benefits of our new system.

Managing Director

Coccion Construction Ltd

We have been with NRB since April 2004 and found them to offer the best advice both financial and business in the years that have passed by since

The most recent was switching to Xero from Sage following several issues with Sage….

This seemed very daunting to us when it was suggested. However, with the encouragement from Adrian Farrimond and the most professional help and assistance from him personally, and his team. It is by far the best thing that we could have done.  Ady personally has helped us with all our concerns and held our hand during this transition. 

Nothing was too much trouble, nor did I feel that I was asking “daft” questions.  He has provided
us with the most consistent and professional advice and help, we only wish we had done this years ago.

NRB are approachable, friendly, and professional with all of their advice, they are at the end of the telephone, or email, always answering without any delay, or when asked, come to our office whenever we need them.

I cannot recommend NRB and in particular Adrian Farrimond, highly enough.
