Duncan & Toplis began working with Equality Action more than 15 years ago, supporting the charity with multiple services, including the preparation of financial statements and independent examinations.
Executive Officer, Varsha Parmar, is very pleased with the services provided to the charity by Duncan & Toplis:
“We have always found Duncan & Toplis to be very professional while also providing us a very personal service which is greatly suited to us.”
“Over the past four years, our charity has expanded due to new sources of funding. Duncan & Toplis has helped us to navigate through this growth to help us support more people across Leicestershire. Our Duncan & Toplis advisers have been very involved and hands-on whenever we’ve required their services.”
“As well as carrying out our independent examination, they have also enabled us to use the charity version of SAGE Accounts - which has been brilliant”
“We would not hesitate in recommending their fantastic services to other charities like us”
Will Cousins, Accountant at Duncan & Toplis, has been working with Varsha and the team at Equality Action for approximately three years:
“As a company, we’ve been working with Equality Action for over fifteen years - forming a brilliant, long-lasting relationship during this time.”
“The team is always very friendly and grateful, providing us with all of the information we require in a timely manner. They are very easy to work with and make our job much easier as a result!”
“The work that they do within the community is just fantastic and it is a pleasure to do our bit to help to make it happen. We’re very proud to be able to work with Equality Action and I look forward to continuing our partnership together.”
