Blink Films was launched a decade ago by me and my business partner Justine Kershaw, and last year produced more than 50 hours of television for channels in the UK and overseas.
When we created the company we spoke with a number of our close contacts within the industry. It was through one of these people that I was made aware of Grunberg & Co.
They were recommended to me on their levels of tax and accountancy expertise and their price point seemed more appropriate to the size and nature of our business compared to some of the large City firm’s that were also recommended to us.
Whilst they were not necessarily specialists in the affairs of TV production companies, Robert and his team showed that they were more than able to understand the requirements of businesses in our sector.
Up until a few years ago they conducted the annual accounts and audits for Blink Films and they were with us as we grew into a multi-million pound business.
I was impressed by their service, and took them on as my personal accountant and continue to benefit from their support.
Robert Bean has always been massively helpful with the tax advice he has provided to me and his expertise was invaluable for my personal tax affairs in the part sale of Blink Films.
He always makes sure he gets back to me quickly and where he can’t personally provide advice he always either brings someone in internally or is happy to recommend someone externally who can help.
I have been absolutely delighted with the level of service provided by Grunberg & Co and I would be happy to recommend them to others if asked.
