“I first met Derek from DGS Accounting at a business seminar just after establishing Oceanbridge Management. Having met three other Accountants, Derek stood out above all of the others as he showed a genuine interest in supporting and developing our business. We now work closely together and Derek has full visibility and trust within the company. We’ll continue to rely on his expertise as we continue with our International expansion. Derek is certainly a proactive and valued advisor who undertakes analysis on our accounts on a regular basis, providing significant insight.”
Masako Eguchi-Bacon Managing Director Oceanbridge ManagementLtd

“Derek has provided me with invaluable support in a way that has enhanced my understanding and practical knowledge in the minefield that is tax and accounting. We have enjoyed an association for two years over which time I have seen him recommended to others, it is only recently that I have needed his expertise for myself. Derek was patient, considerate of my naivety and creative in his advice. Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity."
“Having known Derek at DGS Accounting for several years but in a separate capacity, I was pleased to have his involvement when I established my own Company some 4 Years ago. He played a key part in establishing the Company and steering me through the initial set up process and advising on important issues for the future. As time has gone on his support and professional service enables me to concentrate on running the business, whilst all the VAT, Company and Taxation issues are dealt with wholly by DGS.
With their broad and extensive background of experience both in the UK and dealing with businesses abroad, I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others in a similar situation and contemplating that important jump to owning and running their own business.”
Paul Horner, Managing Director, PHDH Ltd
