More than three-quarters of companies listed an AIM, the small cap investment market, say they are satisfied with services they receive from their accountants.

In a survey, 78% of chief executives of the more than 850 companies listed on AIM described the level of service they received from their accountants as either ‘good or very good’, according to Business XL.

Incredibly, they were only slightly less respectable than lawyers, who received a favourability rating of 82%.

On the down side, some company directors said accountants and lawyers charged too much for their services.

In April, Baker Tilly was chosen as the best firm providing services to AIM companies.
