CALA has been providing bookkeeping services to NDR-UK since March 2017. We have found them to be very knowledgeable, thorough, and flexible in approach, with our financial records completed accurately and timeously. In a short space of time, there is now a very effective working relationship and I would recommend CALA to other similar organizations (charitable or otherwise).
