"After working for Sony and then Decca/Universal, I set up my boutique music management and promotion company, going on to manage artists such as Luciano Pavarotti, Nigel Kennedy and Bond. I have worked on projects for Universal, Sony, EMI, Opera Rara, Virgin, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Jeff Beck and Ute Lemper and many more. After being introduced to me by my quirky, opera-loving bank manager, Simon has been with me right from the start. Since helping me set up my company, he has managed my personal and business finances. Simon has a deep knowledge of the entertainment industry (he also plays a mean keyboard!) and, quite simply, I couldn't recommend him and his talented and friendly team highly enough.

"Riverside Financial has supported our personal and business accounts for over ten years. Simon leads a helpful and professional team which offers a personal service, valuable to both amateur and well practised financial operators. They carry out the work efficiently and economically, and we are pleased to be able to depend on them to look after our tax and financial planning requirements."

"I've been with Riverside Financial for a very long time now. Simon's team is always efficient and polite, I'm not the most reliable answer-er of e-mails and they always respond to my queries quickly. I've always been very happy with the help and advice over the years. Even when my repeated non-understanding of affairs financial might become a bore, things are explained again. Simon himself is an effusive and interested man, always keen to know about his client's businesses. I believe this gives him an edge, as he understands the ebb and flow of my life as well as my work and can try and adjust things accordingly. Simon even advised on my grandmother's affairs as she approached the end of her life (and we poached his cleaner for a while as a home-help, she was great)."

"Simon is especially friendly, knowledgable and re-assuring – which gets him top marks from me and my long experience negotiating with chaps in his trade! Also, he has a prompt, helpful and courteous team. Deadlines are always met and fees very reasonable. So… what more can one ask from one’s accountant?"

"Simon and his fantastically efficient team have been looking after my accounts for over 10 years now. They helped me make the transition from a freelancer to a Company hassle and pain free and have offered and given great advice on managing my company finances."
