Our LLP has been a client of PKB for over a decade and we have always found them extremely helpful and easy to work with. Communication with all members of the team has been efficient, prompt and friendly, and we have always received responses to our queries that went further than we had expected in helping us. They have been exceptionally patient when giving us advice, especially recently and we feel very fortunate to have been referred to them. We would strongly recommend them.

I have been a customer of PKB accountants in Crowthorne for more than 15 years and I have never regretted choosing them as my financial partners. I was actually recommended to them by a friend, and it turned out to be the best referral I could have asked for. PKB strikes the perfect balance between being a small one-man-band firm and a large impersonal corporate entity. They have specialists in every area I need for my business, from tax planning to bookkeeping and payroll. One of the things I appreciate most about PKB is their approachability. Whenever I need to meet with them, I can easily pop into their office, and they always make time to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. They are also quick to respond to my queries via email, which is something I value greatly. PKB uses Xero to manage my accounts, which is a cloud-based accounting software that makes it easy to keep track of my financials. They also use an internal service to sign for documents electronically, whenever possible, which is a great time-saver. Finally, one of the reasons why I trust PKB with my financial affairs is because they have been in business for a long time. I have the assurance that they will be around for many years to come, and that they have the expertise to assist me with any financial challenge that may come my way. I would highly recommend PKB to anyone in need of a reliable and approachable financial partner.

Andy Penfold is a brilliant, friendly and genuine guy not to mention that he really knows his stuff when it comes to accountaing. He spent a lot of his time and effort helping me figure out what was best for my business right from the begining of our relationship and once on baord with PKB the whole team have been efficient, very communicative and a pleasure to deal with. For the first time I now feel like I have accountants who are working with me not against me. Thank you

If you are a sole trader and need help with your accounts because, like me, anything to do with a spreadsheet terrifies you, PKB are your people. The team I dealt with: Andy Penfold the accountant, (patience of a saint), Sarah Hammond and Rebecca Austin were friendly, professional and thorough. I cannot recommend them enough!

As a local business owner whose book-keeper retired recently. I wanted to have a more hands on approach and take on the book keeping side myself. Andy custom tailored my accounting needs and I had some 1:1 sessions with Lisa to teach me how to do what I needed to. I cannot recommend them enough and I am so pleased they are my accountants,

I moved to PKB a year ago and haven’t regretted it for a moment. They are fast, efficient, great value and always a pleasure to deal with.
Everything you want from an accounting firm. If you looking for a change – I’d highly recommend the PKB team.

Almost 12 years ago to the day I first met Andy Penfold.

Andy is a total professional. He has helped and supported me many times over the years through good times and bad. He always starts conversations by asking how I am and the family before
talking about any business. He always takes time to listen, even if I do go rambling on at times!

Andy you are a good friend, a great accountant and an absolute gentleman. Thank you.

PKB are fantastic and always there to provide support and advice. I highly recommend Julie Parham who helps me navigate things I have no idea how to do with patience and support. She is so quick to get back to me and it’s such a relief to know she is there. The other person I would like to mention is Andy Penfold who gives me honest and brilliant advice and has helped to inform many of my decisions to run a successful business. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

I urgently needed an accountant. I used Google to find a company that was local and had already got good reviews. PKB Accountants fitted my needs and from the moment I contacted them I knew I was in safe hands. Their reception and admin teams are supportive and friendly and the accountant (Peter – what a legend!) who took my initial call engaged me as a client and helped me every step of the way – and tolerated my regular calls and emails as I needed his reassurance probably more than most of their other clients! Everyone supported me and got the job done right first time, in record time and I intend to be a client with them from now on. If you want highly skilled accountants with a wonderful team of support staff, then look no further than PKB. Thank you everyone who supported me including Rebecca, Peter and Steve.

I have used PKB from the start of my business.  They are a great professional accountancy service.  Andy Penfold has been nothing short of a guardian angel with his knowledge, providing amazing advice and is always happy to help with any number of the random questions i have!  Highly recommended!

I called PKB for some advice after seeing a recommendation for them online. I was put through to Andy Penfold who took the time there and then to go through some of my questions regarding tax returns and mortgage financials. Andy gave me some excellent advice and I’m so pleased I called. Friendly, professional, helpful, service like this is hard to come by sometimes but I have to say this call was invaluable. So grateful, thank you.

My previous accountant had started to charge me too much money for the work they were doing, and when I investigated the reasons why, I found that the bookkeeping hourly rates they were charging were far too high given the level of work they carried out. I consequently lost faith in them as I felt they had been less than open about their fees.

By comparison PKB have been transparent in their charges and very flexible in how they have helped to support me, in particular Lisa Smith has been very easy to deal with. I’d therefore have no hesitation in recommending Andy Penfold and the team at PKB.

I have used the services of a few accountancy firms over the years and have been shocked at the poor level of diligence, I was starting to lose faith in the sector. However I do not have this issue at all with PKB and they have been nothing short of fantastic. We currently use their services for Payroll, Bookkeeping and Year End account submissions. Their team are extremely helpful in all areas. When we have had a query they are very quick to provide answers. During the Covid 19 pandemic they have been especially helpful providing updates and dealing with all of our queries and requirements during a confusing time giving me clarity in how I need to run my businesses. We work closely with Peter,Julie and Lisa and all have been great!. I recommend PKB to any businesses looking to outsource their accountancy duties.

I am a sole trader with a small business. PKB have efficiently looked after my business and personal accounts for the last 40 years. Andy Penfold and Peter Bowyer have been my main contacts but I have found every member of staff friendly , helpful, approachable, and knowledgeable. Andy in particular has over those years not only advised and guided me on the business front but very importantly taken a friendly personal interest in myself and family. The fact that I was only a small business has never altered the superb service I have received from PKB.I recommend PKB to anybody that wants an accountant that cares about you and your business. Yes, you have to pay for their work but the time and money they save you outweighs any charges you incur.

I have used PKB for the past 19 years. As I am not an accountant, their invaluable knowledge and help have assisted me in the management of my company. The staff are always very helpful, especially when I ask them numerous questions related to my lack of accounting acumen. I wouldn’t be without them.

Andy Penfold is like no other accountant, we have met – he is friendly and informal, while being knowledgeable and professional… a wonderful mix. Having worked with PKB as a partner bookkeeping company, we share several clients. The service we experience between PKB and the client, directly, and that we receive ourselves, makes working together as a virtual team as pleasure. The help, support and advise is superb and our clients have nothing but fabulous things to say about PKB, many of them long-term clients of PKB.

PKB are an excellent and highly knowledgeable accountancy company. The whole team is extremely helpful and always on hand to answer any questions- everything is explained in a manner that is clear and easy to understand. We would have no hesitation in recommending to other businesses.

We are a small local business and have been using PKB to do our accountants for more than a decade now, and the fact they still continue to do them, means a lot to me.
Everybody in the team at PKB are very approachable and very helpful when I need to ask a question or encounter a problem.
Special mention to Andy P and Pete B, who without their knowledge and advice in plain and understandable terms, I would be very stuck. Thanks guys.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to find a good accountancy firm to work with.

I have recently been introduced to PKB Accountants and have been working with Andy Penfold who has proven to be knowledgeable, experienced and a highly valuable source of information and services to two new businesses that I am starting up.

As I am new to the business world, Andy has had to patiently explain (and sometimes had to re-explain) key information to get me started. Andy has communicated clearly and concisely and helped me get underway.

In addition to providing accounting services and general business knowledge, Andy has also introduced me to useful business contacts and helped me solve problems as they have arisen.

In the future, as I develop my businesses and make new contacts, I will have no hesitation in recommending PKB Accountants and I expect to be a client for years to come.

Many thanks for all of your support.
