Solicitor £1M+ turnover

This is a verbatim email extract from a Solicitor at the conclusion of a new Reporting Accountant assignment under the Solicitors Accounts Rules, having just taken over from another firm of Accountants:

“My team have been impressed with your firm's professionalism in dealing with the audit.  Your recommendations are noted and accepted.  We shall cascade to all relevant individuals at our next practice support meeting.”

Director / shareholder - small limited company

"As an self-employed small business director with both business and personal tax affairs to manage, I have struggled hard to find an accountancy firm that can:

  • LISTEN to what I need
  • UNDERTAND the specific financial aims, objectives, and constraints that are important to me
  • PRESCRIBE and HELP ADMINISTER a simple, appropriate, tailored and well-supported solution

However, I'm pleased to report that I've found all the above and more with David Hancock and Co. David has been exemplary in listening and quickly assimilating my requests and requirements into a package that works for me. Further, David delivers his service with a high level of personal care, at a very competitive price, and with an 'astoundingly rational' billing approach based on a simple monthly retainer. Most of all David provides me with the 'X-Factor' ingredients of Clarity and Confidence - total clarity on my tax position and full confidence that I comply with legislation in the most efficient way possible.

Having full experience of David Hancock and Co in both a business and personal tax affairs, I am very happy to make the highest possible recommendation."

Partner in a local business

"Excellent, friendly and professional service for both business and personal accountancy and tax matters, with a ready supply of useful information. Very much better service than my previous accountants combined for a lesser fee!"

Director/shareholder - small limited company

"As the owner of a small Limited Company I came to David following some changes in tax legislation that required me to entirely rethink and re-plan how I ran my operation. David's assistance was invaluable, and his company offering matched the needs most important to be - by being fast, effective, and competitively priced. I continue to be ?routinely surprised? by the speed at which David turns round the requests I make. The level of personal service I receive through David Hancock and Company company is truly outstanding."
