“I have been dealing with Allan’s for some 12 years now and must say that I have found their service to be extremely professional and timely. Nothing is too difficult for them especially when it comes to meeting my sometimes extremely urgent requests.

The staff at Allan’s have always been courteous and efficient in the conduct of their duties with me and although I have been many,many times been “headhunted” to change for a lower price to me, I have remained with Allan’s as in the long-run, I look for solid long-term relationships. Allan’s have done the right thing by my practice whose standards are very high and I expect high standards from my service providers.

I have no hesitation in recommending Allan’s services to other accounting firms.”

“My Firm has been a customer of Alan’s for more than 20 years.They are our incorporation specialists of choice because of their prompt service and attention to detail.

This is a major consideration for a country based Firm such as ours.

In most cases we receive confirmation of the new entities ACN on the same day of order and the company name registration delivered within 2 working days.

We regard this as excellent service!!

I highly recommend their service.”
