    I've been using Intel accountants since the beginning of my business and can't recommend them highly enough. I would be absolutely lost without them and trust them entirely.

For me they are the most valuable investment I could make in the overall scope of what I do.

  • Chris Hill
    I found dealing with Intel Accountants so easy. Their process is easy to follow. Best of all, I didn't need the likes of Xero (which I thought I needed). Taking the worry free accounting package was the one of the best things I did. If you are in the ICT industry - you need this. Cheers.
