Margaux Limited

margaux was born out of the founders' passion for food and wine.  With a focus on freshly sourced ingredients and carefully selected wine, the menu highlights European classics in a stylish urban setting.  With excellent reviews and a burgeoning clientele this restaurant goes from strength to strength.

Brebners have consistently provided us with truly valuable advice and support in respect of our South Kensington restaurant start-up margaux.  Raef and his team walked us hand in hand throughout the company set-up phases (including advice on our EIS scheme participation) and have since then assisted us with a 360-degree service spanning across all accounting and taxation areas, from weekly book-keeping to VAT filings, from the preparation of monthly management reports to payrolls.  Brebners have been to date an invaluable partner to us and our business and we would definitely recommend using Brebners to any start-up that is looking for a ‘one-stop’ accounting firm able to provide unique support and intelligence throughout all areas and kick-off a business on the right foot.

Bloom Design Limited

We are very happy with Brebners' work. The are precise, detailed and proactive and James Pierce in particular goes to great lengths to get up to speed on our business needs, involving specialist partners as and when needed. James is very quick to respond to the complex queries I may have and I never feel like I’m having to hang around or chase for a reply.

We definitely get added value from Brebners, which was the main reason for the move from our previous accountants, which went very smoothly. The team exceeded expectations in terms of getting everything set up and running quickly with minimum fuss.

Brebners' payroll service is very easy and the firm are both flexible enough to work to our guidelines and will suggest efficiencies where they think it would be helpful.

We find Brebners to be very cost-effective. I periodically run the numbers to see if it would be better to bring things in-house and although I could employ a senior bookkeeper for the amount we spend with them in the course of a year, I would need to pay out more on top for the specialist tax and business advice.

Overall I’ve been very impressed with Brebners. Day to day, I have a very good working relationship with my key contact and we work together as an integrated team, rather than ‘us’ and ‘them’.

Get Socialite Limited

We approached Brebners because we needed an accountancy firm that could provide us with a wide range of advice and support. Mark and his team have been an absolute pleasure to work with, they have helped us through many key stages over the past couple of years. In addition to VAT-filings, annual accounts, payroll and tax , they have provided highly specialised advice. During our two fund raising rounds they helped us with SEIS scheme participation, EMI share options and other share redistribution advice. After we were awarded with a Government innovation grant Brebners have guided us through the impact on other areas of the business, such as our ability to claim R&D tax credits.

I highly recommend Brebners to any startup looking for incredibly competent firm with a broad range of support and advice. They have put us on a strong footing and I look forward to working with them in the many years ahead.
