I 'd like to wholeheartedly thank Ruskin Wilson of Thompson Jenner for the exceptional service I have received from him and his excellent staff. Being a woman in business and having been nominated by my bank for a business award; I asked my Business Banking Manager to assist me in accessing a good and truly professional accountant. She told me that she could not recommend Ruskin Wilson highly enough - and how true that recommendation has been. Although my two businesses are categorised as small businesses, Ruskin’s genuine interest in the businesses and their successes has always been exemplary. He has given me more support than any other accountant ever has and this has not involved a higher fee structure! In fact I know that if it had not been for Ruskin’s wide professional knowledge combined with his ability to put salient points forward to governing bodies, the businesses would eventually have failed. Ruskin, himself, is a delight to deal with in that he always makes himself available, he is reassuring, has a warm personality, is very measured and carefully considers each point as it arises and gives the most excellent level of business advice and support.
