With over 15 years of providing support in Benfleet and the wider Essex area, our clients have had a lot to say about how we’ve supported them.

I have been a client of Thorne’s for some time. I am hugely grateful to the staff at MSB for their time and dedication. They offer a very personal service for my accountancy needs, nothing is ever too much trouble and they are always easy to get hold of. The cost for their service is competitive and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other small businesses.

Director, Consultancy in London

I have employed MSB Benfleet for accounting services for approximately 5 years and I would not hesitate to recommend them with respect to accounting services and expertise.

Thorne Smith and Natalie Sidey have always acted with the utmost professionalism, reliability and efficiency particularly given the change of circumstances with respect to my position – from UK self-employed business to Overseas based client and Landlord.

“I have entrusted the management of both my business and personal financial matters to Thorne Smith at MSB Benfleet for over 5 years now. My current base in South East Asia has had no impact on the high quality of service I continue to receive and the speed and efficiency with which MSB perform. As an International Client I wouldn’t choose anyone else to look after my financial affairs.

The simple courtesies of a welcome when visiting the Benfleet office do go a long way and right from the start on arriving the reception staff do just that. Our accountant, Thorne Smith, promptly returned calls, emails and kept to agreed appointment times. It is fair to say that MSB showed us how a client should be treated by an accountant. Furthermore and probably most importantly MSB offered advice on how improvements could be made to our business finances drawing from personal experience as well as professional. We would highly recommend MSB and strangely enough we are looking forward to next year’s accounts which are something we dreaded for many years.
