Here’s what they had to say about our work

“Newbury English has been a godsend!  They are exactly what I have been trying to find for ten years.  They, not only are talented accountants, they are fantastic troubleshooters and financial planners.  As a small business owner, I have to wear a lot of hats.  Newbury English knows what I don’t know I don’t know and has helped me navigate the more complex aspects of accounting and tax preparation so I am both legal and getting the most out of my business.  Newbury English knows their stuff!” – Meg Hagele, Biggest fan!

Our relationship in a nutshell

“I met Steven on April 15, 2014 when he calmly agreed to file an extension after a very unexpected problem occurred with the accountant I had at the time.
Steven subsequently filed my 2013 taxes and I am now thrilled to be working with him. I am a creative entrepreneur with more complicated books, that Steven handles seamlessly. He is helpful with both the logistics of the tax system, as well as strategies to shape an emerging small business.”- Julia Blaukopf

Happy to help

“Any one who has battled with crushing tax problems understands the utter hopelessness that I have been feeling. Jumping from one “tax professional” to the next in a desperate attempt to resolve my issues was only pushing me further into debt. Steven Newbury was introduced to me by my dear friends at Highpoint Café. Almost immediately I could see that he was working for me in way that the others had not. With utter dedication and care he approached my problem as if it were his own. While meticulously untangling my IRS mysteries, he played an integral roll in helping me stream line my billing and estimating, pointed out weakness in marketing strategies and has pushed me to drive sales in ways that I would have never fully understood. Recommending him to others is little more than paying it forward.” – Zack Bird

High praise indeed

“I’m a first time business owner who opened my storefront only 8 short months ago. With all the  stresses I encounter on a daily basis, I’m happy to say, working with my accountant is not one of them! Steven, is professional, communicative, and has a way of speaking in plain English that really helps me understand what it is that we’re doing here! From sorting out the shoddy work from my first bookkeeper, to walking me through setting up Quickbooks, to completing my taxes for this first crucial year, I feel like I am now on the right track with my business, with new information and perspective! Newbury English seems to be able to bridge the gap between the creative business owner and the actual business, helping me see more clearly what I need to do to keep up with my numbers! Looking forward, I feel like my business is in good hands, and I have someone to turn to when I don’t know or understand what I’m doing! If you are looking for professional accounting services with personal attention and service, look no further than Newbury English.” – Dena Epstein
