Success stories

“I was introduced to Dua & Co by a friend after a very bad previous supplier. I haven’t looked back since. I was introduced to Barry Gordon and have continued to work with him and the Dua & Co team ever since. I no longer worry about my accounting despite my complicated multiple business set up. Through good times and bad times I have received the support and advice I needed and have been well chased to make sure I get everything done in time. I can then concentrate on what I do and getting my business working. I cant recommend them highly enough.”

RP, Information Technology Consultant

“Very efficient family orientated business that works hard to understand its clients.”

TB, Property Investment

“A superb accountancy firm who I would recommend without hesitation.”
