We have been using GI in earnest for a little over a year now and we are delighted with the service.
We started by just using GI for the compliance work and that has been so successful we no longer do any year end accounts in house. The quality is excellent, the working papers are all hyper linked for quick and easy review, the queries are insightful and they really know what they are doing.
It has speeded up the work flow through the office and given me more time to spend on my clients. We found it gives a very ‘fixed cost’ if a practice is struggling with time budgets on jobs. We have extended the service to our bigger, more organised payroll clients. And again, I cannot fault it. The service is timely and accurate.
Finally we are using the bookkeeping and management accounts department, again for our bigger more organised clients. It works particularly well if the client is using Xero or similar, Receipt Bank and Dropbox. Their bookkeeping and management accounts team are handling some fairly tricky clients for us – which I just didn’t have time to train someone in house to do. They picked the jobs up with very little instruction from us. We couldn’t be happier.
I would urge anyone to try GI out especially on a compliance job. They did the first job for us on a trial basis and we have never looked back.
