    A true gentleman in an industry of sharp suits and sharper billing practices. Always enjoy my dealings with Graham as he values the client relationship, takes time to explain in layman terms and delivers what I need - all at very reasonable rates! He handles 2 limited companies for me as well as personal tax. Can't fault him

  • Avatar John Elcock ★★★★★ a week ago
    Over recent years Graham and his team have provided us with a significant amount of advice and support on a whole range of accountancy and estate matters, including some difficult, highly complex issues. (Wish we had engaged him much earlier). Within the accountancy and estate planning field there seems to be little that Graham does not have a grip of and he is always able to come up with knowledgeable and informed strategy around any business matter. He is clearly highly experienced in a very wide range of business and accountancy matters. On a practical basis the offices are very accessible and Graham and the team are very approachable and easy to talk to.

    Customer since 2018, we are happy to recommend Mercian Accountants, a competent team, updated of the latest rules, caring and providing a personal service. Listening and understanding questions, explaining simply when needed without the accounting jargon.
    As Graham put it: ‘ we are specialists in our trade as you are in yours’. Valuable advice given both for personal and business matters. Efficient communications and transmission of documents via a dedicated portal, no need to come to the office for safe delivery. We can’t fault them and approve all their activities.

    I've been with Mercian Accountants a few years. I find them very helpful and informative and willing to go that extra mile for you. Graham is very knowledgeable about his field of work.
  • Avatar Gary Harper ★★★★★ a month ago
    I never understood my previous accountant . With Graham it’s very clear what I need to do and when.
    He nearly makes tax planning interesting and enjoyable.
    I could not recommend Mercian Accountants highly enough.
  • Avatar Nichole Bradley ★★★★★ a month ago
    This was my first experience with an accountant as had not had my own business before. Therefore always paid taxes through my employer. I’d attempted to try and self assess and with very no experience in sorting my own taxes, had got into a bit of a state. I’d left the financial side of things (HMRC) to one side and was mainly focusing on keeping the business of my HMO running as smoothly as possible, especially during the pandemic. The thought of facing my taxes was like a black cloud constantly over my head, keeping me awake at night.Graham was very reassuring from the moment he called and explained the service they provided.There was no pressure to accept their offer to help and the process of what I’d need to do was explained in layman’s terms to me. He explained what I’d need to prepare and produce for HMRC and gave advice on things I may need to think about in terms of moving forward in the future. I remember him calmly telling me not to panic, which was a huge relief .Graham always responded promptly to my questions and queries and didn’t make me feel stupid, which is how I felt before going to an account.Graham clearly has a great wealth of knowledge and experience in his job role.Now that my taxes have gone in and been paid I feel relieved that I’ve done everything right with the advice given and feel confident that I won’t experience any repercussions from HMRC.I feel in a much stronger position than I did a few months ago in regards to taxes, the law and my own responsibilities. I hope this will only improve in the incoming years.Thank you.

    I recently had a complicated tax situation to resolve. Graham provided an outstanding service, deploying first-class specialist knowledge, courtesy and professionalism. A welcome contrast to a lot of other companies was the effective communication - including very speedy responses to all emails. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

    I have been with Mercian for many years and have always found them to be extremely professional and efficient. Graham in particular has been extremely helpful guiding me through the financial maze of running my small one-mum-band business with patience and compassion, a rare trait in this sometimes dog-eat-dog world.
