“Let's face facts.  Like many in TV, I consider myself a creative.   Give me a treatment to write, a script, a pitch, and I'm your boy.  Break out a  spreadsheet and I break out in a cold sweat.  Simone is the only accountant I have had (and she is number four!) that makes things easy to understand in a way that doesn't make me feel like an idiot. That's a neater trick than it seems.  I have modest tax bills and feel secure.  That's what we want isn't it?  The best I've met by some distance.”   

Dave Winnan, Producer, Brave New Pictures Ltd.

"As somebody who works on the creative side of the film industry I've never been very good with numbers.  Before Simone was in my life I used to have nightmares about my tax and was drowning under a disorganised sea of receipts.  She has now helped me put a workable system in place that suits my chaotic lifestyle.  I run my own company and can rest easy knowing that my tax is in order.  No more sleepless nights about the tax man!  Thank you Simone."  

Sally El Hosaini, Trouble & Desire Films Ltd.

“For someone who finds it hard to understand all the HMRC jargon Simone is always there to explain everything in real terms.  It means it makes the whole tax process easier and less painful. Having a very friendly accountant that I feel I can trust is really important to me and something I greatly appreciate."

Cally Haycox, Producer, Cally Haycox Productions Ltd.

"I have been with Daffodil Accounting for a few years now and Simone and her team not only do my yearly accounts efficiently but also at a really reasonable rate. Being quite ignorant to how the system works Simone gives you quality time in explaining the progress on each accounts return and I trust them implicitly as they are very thorough in their process. I also highly recommend them to others looking for an accountant in the media industry "  

Angela Murray, Production Manager, Angela Murray Ltd.

“I find Daffodil Accounting Ltd. an excellent firm to deal with. They are always extremely approachable and any queries that I have had are dealt with promptly and with the minimum of fuss. I consider myself fortunate to have been introduced to the company.” 

Robert Van Creveld, Owner, VC Diamond Ltd.

"Being a small business where most of my time goes on working out on location or in the studio I found Daffodil Accounting to be  life and money savers as they keep me straight by never missing a deadline and always keeping my interests in mind when calculating my taxes. Best of all is Simone's great attitude and patience when she explains my tax to me again year after year, or anytime I call or email with a pressing question... I couldn't recommend her enough!!  

Ariel Sultan, Sultan Of Sound Ltd.

"I cannot recommend Daffodil Accounting enough, what I love is I email or phone Simone and I get an answer. No waiting days just straight honest answers. She will tell you where you are going right ... and wrong. Plus she explains it in a way I understand... "  

Clodagh O'Donoghue, Producer, Pinky Productions Ltd.

“Simone and the Daffodil team provide Darrall Macqueen with an efficient production accountancy service that is truly first class. Responsible team players with excellent attention to detail – accountants with a smile – what more does a busy production need?”

Maddy Darrall – co-MD Darrall Macqueen

“I chose Daffodil Accounting not only for their expertise, but more importantly because Simone makes it easy to ask questions. It's reassuring to know that when I’m unsure about something, Simone and her team are there to make things easier.” 

Neil Copland, Motion Designer / Animator

“Simone and Daffodil Accounting are the best in the business; professional, friendly and take the stress out of your tax and finances”

Pete Bailey - Presenter, Producer & Voice-Over

“Starting my own company after as lifetime of working for others was a seriously daunting task and working with Simone was the first, best decision I made - more than an accountant, she's an absolute lifesaver, sanity-saver, therapist, advisor, and the safest pair of hands you could ask for.”

Alexander Milas, Director - Twin V Ltd.

“Simone has been doing my accounts for the past six years and during that time I have recommended her without hesitation to everyone I know.

What I like is that Simone talks like a lay person she doesn't used confusing jargon and is always professional, prompt and incredibly patient.

I whole heartily recommend Simone and Daffodil Accounting it was the best move I have made for my buisness.”

Claire Callaghan, Producer

“Simone is hugely reliable, super efficient, always on hand to help out AND is possibly the most patient person I have ever met...especially with my constant questions! ”

Rory Dalziel, Producer

“I have found Daffodil Accounting to be a highly efficient, very flexible, great value for money and friendly accountancy service”

Seb Cardinal - Comedian, Cardinal Burns

“Simone has looked after our accounts and tax returns both as self-employed freelancers and more recently as a limited company, for the last 8 years.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.  She is endlessly patient with our annoying questions and always happy to explain intricacies of the tax system we don't understand.  She keeps us on track, ensuring we never miss a deadline and is always such a pleasure to deal with.  We would be totally lost without her and would recommend to anyone! ”
