He will be your super-friendly greeter when you enter our offices, escorting you safely to the boardroom. (Top notch private security) His role includes keeping you company and ensuring your Positive experience at Positive Accounting. In return he asks for very little. A pat on the head at least, a tummy tickle will keep you in his good books, but some treats will make you his best friend. The best part of Iden is he is always smiling (we think) and happy (that one we know for sure). For all dog-lovers, Iden looks forward to meeting and greeting you! Experts you can trust, advice you can rely on and results that matter. That’s Positive Accounting.
