I've been lurking here for a long time, often searching the forum for recommendations for local restaurants, pubs and services - a great resource for local knowledge! Now I'm hoping someone can help with a recommendation for an accountant for my small (single person) business - my current accountant has been great for the last 13 years(!) but he's now retiring and I've slipped badly behind with my paperwork. I was hoping I could find someone local who can come in and help sort out the mess!?
It's illegal to pose as a customer of your own business, and we have a hall of shame for astroturfers.
You're more than welcome to post here and say "I'm from Greenback Alan, we're local and we offer the sort of service you are looking for" - it's not fine to pretend to be making an impartial recommendation.
