Desarch Ltd

We instructed Phillips & Co Accountants having lost faith in our previous firm. Terry immediately struck us as being interested in the nature of our business and had carried actually carried out research into the various ways he could help us. We learnt more from him in the first three weeks than we had learnt from our previous Accountants in three years. He stressed the importance of liaising closely with clients to ensure the client’s accounting records were in accord with the filed accounts and was always there to answer any query we had. He is extremely thorough and courteous and we are delighted (and relieved) to have him representing our company.

JUT Communications Ltd

When my accountant retired after 13 years, I needed someone else who was local and who I felt comfortable with.

Animi Ltd

I’ve been running my business for almost 20 years. I’ve been with Phillips & Co Accountants since July 2018. Balancing my books has now become so much easier with the help of the IRIS Kashflow software they suggested I use. Always dreaded doing end of month or end of year and VAT was a horrible experience. Now its 30 minutes each month. Everything makes sense. Nice clean interface. Anytime I wasn’t sure Phillips & Co Accountants would step in, explain what I didn’t understand and, if needed, fix any problems. I cant advocate Phillips & Co Accountants enough and IRIS Kashflow has changed how I manage my books.

They are very approachable and always answer any questions I have quickly and comprehensively. I am glad Phillips & Co Accountants were recommended to me and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anybody else.

GEM Racing Ltd

When we started our small business in June 2005 we believed we would be safe by choosing a Chartered Accountant that was ICAEW accredited. We soon began to realise that we had made a serious mistake. We were therefore very wary about choosing our next accountants. We were recommended Phillips & Co Accountants by the owner of a local small business. They have now been our accountants for over 4 years and have exceeded our expectations by providing us with a very dependable and professional service. They have always completed our accounts in good time, and whenever we have sought any advice or clarification their response has been prompt and helpful. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending Phillips & Co Accountants to anyone who is looking for a professional and reliable firm of accountants.
