“Over the last 15 years Henny at Essential Bookkeeping Solutions has provided my business with exceptional practical and functional service and advice. During this time EBS has been instrumental in implementing cloud based accounting software, shown flexibility with online banking changes and is always happy to investigate the suitability of the latest products. Henny and her skills are integral to the smooth running of our company and to my peace of mind as a business owner.
