About us – meet our Hudson team

Our approach is all about helping you to manage and develop your business, but we appreciate you’d probably like to know a little about us, and what our clients think.

Here is a sample of how some of our clients feel about our service…

  • “We’ve been working with Della for about 3 years now. Our business, which provides e-learning and training systems to corporate clients, has tripled in size in that time period. Whilst I can’t give Della all the credit for that, it’s great to be working with a dynamic accountancy that can grow with us. Della and her team have been excellent at flexing their service, and their style of interaction, as we get more structured and need more strategic business and finance advice as well as the core accountancy tasks. I have a similar rule about “only work with nice people”, so without this becoming too much of a love-in, Della and her team are knowledgeable, professional, and fun to work with, without exception. ” Tim Newham, Think Associates Limited
  • “I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your assistance and guidance recently whilst I am setting up my business. Your input has been invaluable in terms of pointing me in the right direction, helping me to focus and see things from a different point of view, as a bouncing board and generally giving me inspiration by setting an example. ” C Yearsley, Just a Sec Accounts
  • “Crikey, Della Hudson’s good. If you’re a financial nincompoop like me you need a quietly conscientious professional looking after your financial affairs for you whilst you do the things you’re good at. That’s Della that is. And such a lovely lady too.” M Emery, Securus Health and Safety Limited5
  • “Excellent prompt and efficient service. Everything is clearly explained and jargon free! Thank you.” Sarah McKerney, Trustee, Activate Your Life
  • “It is a rare combination of being able to deal with a very professional friend. As a new business, combined with the ignorance of me and my partner in tax and finance matters, your service was invaluable.” A Lyalle, Director, Embrace Legal Solutions Ltd
  • “You are dearer than our (local accountant) but easier to deal with and worth the extra expense.” P Weston, Philip Weston Construction Management Limited
  • “Good value, extremely happy with service.” J Jenks, Hair Boutique
