Hi Ben, I just thought I'd drop you a line to thank you and everyone that has been involved in dealing with my companies problems. I realise that there is still a way to go yet, but for the first time in months, I feel calmer. I took today off, I've slept all day. May sound daft, but I've not had more than a couple of hours sleep at a time for months! Thanks to you all, apologies if I've been a pain, this whole process is new to me. Thank you for your patience and help.

Juan Riaza - Blue Cloud Developments

I would like to thank Forbes Burton for their assistance in helping me close my company. Overall they offer a great service that has never really needed my input which has been ideal as I have managed to get on with other things around the closure taking place.   We came across some stumbling blocks with problems that my creditors were causing but nothing was ever too much for them and they took the time to explain to me what was going on and how we could resolve it, I cannot be more happier that the company is now closed and I have one less thing to worry about.   I would definitely recommend Forbes Burton to anyone in the same situation as me, thanks again.

I approached Forbes Burton to help me out of a situation that I was not capable of resolving by myself. I was in desperate need of some guidance and advice which was given freely and willingly on a regular basis. I was kept informed of developments at all stages of the process, and at no time was I contacted by any of my Creditors – a real worry to me. Overall I am impressed with the service provided, and – most importantly to me – grateful for the ease which which it has happened. The price was reasonable, no further charges were asked for, and I was even allowed to pay over a series of months for affordability. Once again many thanks Emma.
