Customer Testimonials

The team at Blue Rocket have been absolutely excellent. They are always patient and get back to me quickly. I make use of their support often and ask a lot of questions, which they answer in a way that makes things very clear.

Julie Sheppey
JLS Fire Protection Ltd

Blue Rocket stand out from other accountants, and not just because their brand has a personality. Having them support me by keeping my accounts in check means that I am freed-up to focus on what I am good at, allowing me to grow my business.

Kevin Bowden
Bowden Digitec Ltd

As a new client of Blue Rocket Accounting I have been blown away by the support they provide. Not only do they deliver excellent accountancy services, they have been there for their clients 24/7 during the pandemic, from dispensing jargon free digests of government announcements to setting up a WhatsApp group to provide support and networking.

Simon Fennell
STF Consulting Ltd

Blue Rocket suggested I changed the way I was getting paid as a director. This saved me over £10,000 which I was then able to put back into the business.

Peter Abrahams
Abounding Ltd

We struggled for years to find a good accountant for our business. 4 years in and we have finally cracked it with the team at Blue Rocket. Unrivalled support and customer service, a genuine willingness to help, and overall exceptional support and knowledge. Can’t recommend them enough.

Chris Guilfoyle
JCD Cleaning and Support Services Ltd

The difference Blue Rocket made to the way I manage my business is something I could never have anticipated. I now believe that my goal of paying my mortgage off early is achievable due to the support I was given, which allowed me to make a strong start.
