I have really enjoyed working with the team at Vibrant so far. As someone who works on a personalised goals based approach within my business it seemed like an obvious choice to begin working with the team who also shared that approach, rather than the generic approach towards accountancy I have received in the past.

Being able to work with people who understand my personal and business goals moving forward and can hold me to account on my decisions is also very beneficial.

There’s always so much to bear in mind when choosing an accountant. As a sole trader starting out, I remember asking myself questions like: “Can’t I just do it myself?”, and, “Do I really need a top accountant when I’m only a one-man band?”. But I’m so glad I made the decision to partner with the Vibrant team.

They’ve supported me in my first year of business, helping me with my day to day accounting and a switch from sole trader to limited company. And when I moved to Germany, they advised me on some of the international tax complexities involved. Imagine how much time I’d have spent trying to get my head around all of that – the conflicting information, getting lost in the maze of the government website. It gives me a headache just thinking about it!

What I’ve valued most about working with Vibrant are the team’s generosity and patience. Especially when I started out, and asked lots of very basic questions. Their communication is always clear and timely. And, even though I know I’m not their biggest client, I’ve always felt that they’ve looked after me like I am.
