“Nordens have been dealing with myself & Dad for many years now. Nothing is an issue for these guys. The educated advice and support given by these guys is amazing. Communication is also top class with various departments and key people being at the end of the phone or email. 

Professional. Polite. Supportive. Trustworthy. Approachable. All the key things a business needs big or small from an accountant.”

Natasha Sandhu

“I’d like to thank Nordens and Jane in specific for going the extra mile at short notice to help whenever need. It’s very reassuring to have someone who understands the complexities and fast past nature of our business. A great service. Thank you.”

Anthony Sartain

“I have been working with Nordens as an advisory client for the last four years and it has been an absolute god send to my business and its success, as well as to my confidence as a business owner. Having them as a sounding board is like having an onsite CFO – I would be unable to run or grow my business and make key financial or strategic decisions without them and the fool proof forecasts he builds and we work from each year. I would absolutely advise and encourage any company founder of a start-up or small business to utilise this service and Nordens’ incredible expertise, particularly, if like me, you do not have the accounting knowledge or time to focus in such a complex and ever-changing area.”
