The BCR Associates team managed all of the paperwork and processes saving us time and money and at no cost to us. We have been very impressed with the service we have received and would happily recommend them to any other business looking to save money. Through this introduction by our account manager we have managed to save over £12,000 per annum which has been a real bonus.
