  • “Menzies provided, audit, tax and company secretarial services to SFW. Their work was always to a  very high standard and we found them easy to work with. When we sold the business Menzies provided significant help during due diligence and completion activities. They were highly responsive, particularly, when we had last minute requests for assistance and were thoroughly professional. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
