Since the early days in 1995, we've grown in tandem with our clients, many of whom have used our tax, immigration and advisory services to build successful businesses. See what these happy clients had to say about our services.

Today, our clients consistently rank among the UK’s foremost professionals, business owners and successful entrepreneurs. Without them, we would have no story to tell. 

Here, you will find a snippet of what our clients have been saying about us.

"The output that we have received over the last four years has always been top class. They epitomise efficient, flexible, deliverable-driven, professional, value added service. Nothing is ever inconvenient. Nothing is ever too much to ask."

CFO, restaurant group

“Sable offers the best value for money in the financial services market place. A true stand-alone in terms of relationship management as well as one of a kind expertise for market knowledge. The most professional and courteous staff I have ever encountered industry-wide!” 

Brendan Harte

“I do like your system - lovely and straightforward - just wish other dealers were so simple.” 

Finance Manager, market-leading marine safety equipment company

“I wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks. I have just received a report detailing that, since working with Sable, we have saved £7,635 in exchange rates and bank charges. I promised we’d keep an eye on your exchange rate margin and I am happy that hasn’t changed. Keep up the good work!” 

Owner, medium-sized fruit importer

“Just a short note commending Saskia and Sable on not only the easy and user-friendly online service you provide, but also the non-existence of the “obligatory bank fee” I would have been charged. The entire process was painless and uncomplicated. Many thanks again for your service which can only be described as out of the top drawer and the extra pounds in my pocket. Be assured I will tell everyone I know of your service!”

Director, property investment company

“Your service is prompt and professional - impeccable.” 

Managing Director, leadership and coaching company

“Thanks Amelia. The US$ have arrived already. Thank you very much for a smooth and successful transaction!” 

Group Treasurer, corporate finance investment company, Birmingham

“Very impressive system, easy to use, very intuitive. Adding payees was very easy, and the instructions that followed on the deal confirmation were very clear about how to make the settlement payment to you.” 

Managing Director, large cycle accessory company

“I have to say I’ve been very impressed with your Relationship Manager, Amelia, and her knowledge and performance during this first transaction. She has kept me updated on a regular basis and supplied me with informative current information, which allowed me to make informed decision ahead of booking our deal. Today’s trade went through without any hitches at all; we received the Euros quickly, on the same day, which enabled me to pay our suppliers’ today. So from all of us, it’s a big thumbs up for Amelia and the team at Sable. We will definitely be using Sable for our next trade.”

Finance Manager, leading UK manufacturer, Hampshire

“JDi is a full service integrated marketing agency working with clients in the UK, the US and Asia. Consequently, we regularly pay and are paid in Euros and US Dollars. Sadly the banks in some other countries are not as organised as in the UK and that is why Saskia and Sable Forex have proved invaluable to us.

The service is impeccable and the value for money simply superb. Most important of all, you can talk to a human being. In a world where real service has virtually vanished from many financial service sectors, Saskia and Sable Forex are like a breath of fresh air with those immortal words “Yes, we can do that for you”.

I use Saskia for all my personal foreign exchange transactions too. I recommend Saskia to all my friends and I strongly recommend them to you too because when you need Foreign Exchange services, for either business or personal use, you often don’t have much time and that’s exactly when expensive mistakes can be made. So am I happy with Saskia and Sable Forex? Mmm No, I am ecstatic! Use them. They are the best!" 

Duncan Richardson, Managing Director, JDi

“I am very impressed with Saskia, and the way she has helped me in the past with a University term payment for a family member in the Caribbean. She and her team took all the pain out of the transaction and are also now helping me with setting up an account, so that I can do future transactions online. I would absolutely recommend Sable to my clients, colleagues and friends wishing to transfer money across borders."

Ruth-Anne, Supanova Virtual PA Services

“I am overwhelmed by your professionalism and support. In this day and age, such professionalism and respect is a rare thing and you definitely apply your motto in practice. I am so grateful for the time you have taken to explain and give me some understanding of the transactions taking place, as I appreciate how busy you must be and how little I know. I would not hesitate to recommend you and the Sable Group to any of my clients. Many thanks indeed and I look forward to hearing from you later today. With best wishes.”

Fiona W FCCA, ConsultAccount Ltd

“I've had two other accounting suppliers before, but none get near Sable. The level of service is outstanding and exceeds my expectations. I recommend them to anyone who will sit still long enough to listen, haha! Seriously though, they're friendly, welcoming, easy to work with, take the time to make you feel special and even though they're a big firm, the personal service you get makes them feel smaller. They seem to be genuinely interested in their clients' success and are always there to help when you need advice.”

Cemanthe Harris, New Media Angels

“You have been instrumental in building a stable financial base for our company. We have always found your service to be fast, efficient and accurate. Of more value, however, has been your sound advice; you have become our trusted advisers”

Managing Director, communications company

“Working with you has allowed us to re-engineer our accounting function by providing us with an onsite accountant and part-time financial manager for a similar cost to a fully employed accountant. We receive useful management accounts with pre-agreed KPI’s and analysis on a timely basis each month. Because you manage the entire process no disruption occurs in the event of a change to the accounting team”

Managing Director, recruitment firm

“I've been with Sable for a number of years and feel that I am in very good hands. They've always been willing to answer any questions that I may have (as a non-tax-savvy layperson) which has meant that I have been able to keep on top of what's owed and when without any surprise tax bills from HMRC. I'm one of their smaller clients for both personal tax and company tax, but have always had all the help and advice that I have needed to get an accurate picture of what is due and how the figures have been calculated. A comprehensive and helpful service from nice people who are great to deal with!"

Ruth Brecher Velarde, Managing Director, Underwired* PR

“I can't tell you how delighted I have been. As a small but busy agency, bookkeeping was the bane of our lives. No longer — you have been a lifesaver. Over the last year or so I have come to rely on your quick courteous responses, professional advice and flexible attitude. You truly have transformed our business. I really appreciate that I can pick up the phone anytime to get help, ask for a report or check the latest VAT rules. You have been great at whipping our accounts in to shape. I really enjoy having the simplicity of a regular contact, without the overhead of hiring a full-time bookkeeper. Overall, I couldn't be happier and wanted to express my thanks to you and the whole team.”

Director, creative agency
