Your information and input was professional and spot on. You assisted me again just before Christmas, I needed proof of income to finalise my house purchase, the same contractor payroll service charged me £30 and made major mistakes in the information they produced. Once again through one phone call you managed to sort out the problem the same day!! THANK YOU, Jonathan Lee Recruitment for doing a great job!
