I would recommend him to anyone wanting a tech-savvy accountant who knows his way around FreeAgent.” Steve Davis (IT contractor) ~ ~ ~ “John has worked with me for the last two years, and his advice and support has been a huge help to my freelance business, especially with his experience in the creative industries. JF Financial Management work in a way that’s approachable and accessible to modern freelancers like myself—the ability to work with John through my FreeAgent accounts makes life much easier, and every question I’ve had has been carefully explained. Highly recommended!” Jason Bradberry (web & graphic designer) ~ ~ ~ “John has done a great job offering advice on a whole host of financial areas as well as providing useful tools to make it all much easier. He clearly understands the needs of freelancers and micro businesses and he has responded helpfully to changing requirements over time. John blends strong technical knowledge with an approachable down to earth personality that means he is always easy to speak to.” Catherine Heaney (small business owner) ~ ~ ~ “Having run my own business for 4 years John is the third accountant I have worked with. At last, I have found someone who is prepared to work to understand my business and who is invested in helping me grow. Since working with John I have had timely helpful advice and even better he speaks English – not “accountant”! I can do nothing but recommend him.” Annie Curtis (virtual assistant) ~ ~ ~ “John is a fantastic accountant. He is very knowledgeable, quick to respond, friendly and approachable. He explains things very clearly and has made the accounting part of my business a breeze. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an accountant. I just wish I’d found him sooner!” Alex Watson (web designer & developer) ~ ~ ~ “When PGS was first established we used a high street, high profile accountant. Unfortunately despite their sales pitch, they showed little interest in our business and when our relationship manager left, we were left without a contact or any support. As we do most of our business administration online, we decided that we should we use an accountant that we could deal with online. We have been delighted with the service we have received from JF Financial. In particular they are familiar with our accounting software, FreeAgent, which they can access remotely. Whilst we have never met John, we have absolute confidence in him and he has provided excellent service, allowing us to concentrate on developing our business without worry about our accounts. ” Beryl Hobson (small business owner) ~ ~ ~ “John was recommended to me by a friend who’s also a qualified Accountant. He’s a very personable guy, and I know that when I have any queries or issues it will be dealt with very quickly, generally straight away. He uses technology that saves paper chasing and signing off documents, and posting letters that I had to do with my previous Accountant. I’ve been really happy with every aspect of the service provided and would highly recommend him to anyone, and I have.” James Stilwell (small business owner) ~ ~ ~ “I met John through Twitter after publicly crying out for help regarding my accounts. He introduced himself and immediately made me feel comfortable about taking on his help and services. Communication is great and he’s really helped me out financially. As a result, I look forward to a long working relationship.” Alex Gill (freelance designer) ~ ~ ~ “I approached John with a self assessment issue, that he helped me sort out immediately. He’s very clear, and made it seem much less daunting. Once I go freelance again I will definitely hire John and pass all my paperwork to him so he can take care of it!” Rik Haines (event production) ~ ~ ~ “John is not the first accountant I have hired in the many years I have been in business, but I can’t help but think that my life would have been a lot easier (not to mention more profitable) if I had hired John many years ago when I first went into business. Within a week or so of taking him on John gently steered me towards what turned out to be a sizeable rebate from HMRC. If accountants’ value can be measured on how much they save you compared to how much they cost then John Falcon would be eons ahead of the field in terms of value for money and return on investment.” Andrew Laws (internet marketing) ~ ~ ~ “John and I worked at UBC Media together many moons ago. Since then we have gone on separate paths but remained in contact. Earlier this year I needed some financial modelling done in a very short time frame and thought of John. He was brilliant. I was able to brief him on the phone and completely trusted him to go and see my client. He didn’t let me down, in fact my client was equally impressed with the speed with which he was able to turn the required work around and the comprehensive model produced. John is not only a committed professional, he is also extremely approachable and personable and as such I have no hesitation in recommending him.” Matthew Honey (consultant) ~ ~ ~ “I first engaged with John to help me with my personal accounting and provide tax advice as a sole trader at the start of 2013. John understands that not everyone is an accountant which I found really helpful as everything was explained very simply and clearly – I always know where I stand and what is expected of me. After working with him for a number of months I decided to move the accounting for my small business over to him too. His knowledge of accounting for small business and past experience growing businesses as well as having worked in much larger organisations means that he is a fantastic asset in helping me grow my business.” Alex Strang (digital consultant) ~ ~ ~ “I procured John’s services after a year of trying to do my accounts myself and he sorted them out in a week. Highly efficient, very knowledgeable and friendly, I feel very safe knowing my finances are in John’s hands. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an accountant.” Claire Doherty (web developer) ~ ~ ~ “I did quite a bit of research looking for an accountant and chose John because he had vast industry experience and like me, was setting up on his own. In the 6 months or so I’ve been working with John I’ve never once regretted my decision. I find him to be knowledgeable, personable, helpful, quick to respond, adaptable, and very good at his job, all at a reasonable cost. I have already recommended him to friends and colleagues, and wouldn’t hesitate to do so on Linkedin either.” Izzy Fairbairn (freelancer) ~ ~ ~ “John provides accurate, timely and reliable accountancy services to me. His helpful attitude and competitive pricing provide added value. Highly recommended.” Gary Dunne (freelancer) ~ ~ ~ “As a new business, finding a reliable accountant can be daunting. After visiting multiple accounting businesses and not feeling like any of them cared about my business, I met John via Twitter. Personal, meticulous and very understanding, John is the ideal accountant for any small or new business.” Luca Massaro (small business owner) ~ ~ ~ “John did a fantastic job of completing my tax return for me. He consistently answers my (numerous and probably tedious) financial questions in a very kind, professional, and prompt manor. John is very friendly and knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him, and am sure to be using his services for years to come.” Abigail Read (illustrator) ~ ~ ~ “John has proved time and time again to be an invaluable source of advice and expertise, on hand for whenever we need advice on all aspects of corporate finance. His provision of services is effective, constant and efficient. John is always swift to respond to all communication.” Shane Wall (small business owner) ~ ~ ~ If you would like to discuss your accounting needs or if you have any queries please do get in touch.
