What is your favourite statement that you regularly use when advising your clients?

“It is too hard to choose one. However, in numerous cases formulating a plan or new structure for a business that has been both tax-efficient and eased cash flow to save hundreds of thousands in loans, and in a few cases millions.”
How do you see the future of your firm from your perspective?
“We look forward to the efficiencies and expertise Xeinadin will bring in the field of HR, license costs, etcetera. Furthermore, we want to adapt and use technology to move away from manual processing as soon as possible, and we’re looking to merge smaller practices in the area in with us.”
