I worked with Vincent while at Easy Taxi. His company, B-Accounting, provided us with accounting seravices. While dealing with him and his staff, I did not have to worry about my accounts at all. His company made sure that all the accounts were up to date and that all reports were delivered on time. All of this at a very reasonable cost. I strongly recommend working with Vincent and his firm for accounting services. 17/03/2020

It is with much pleasure that I recommend Vincent. I know Vincent since 2014. We outsourced our full accounting as well as our management reporting with B-Accounting. I deeply appreciated his accuracy, responsiveness in the exchanges and strict respect of the deadlines. Vincent is a great professional with strong international and local financial expertise. 17/03/2020
