  • Avatar Negative Thinking ★★★★★ in the last week
    We have recently joined Mercian Accountants with our CIC and whilst we are trying to conserve and direct funds to places we really need, the team at Mercian has been patient, understanding and supportive to our needs and worries. I really get a sense they know what they are doing and their transparency … More of what is needed at base level. Leo has been helping me organise Xero and the setting up of our systems - and has been generous with his time to make sure we are off to a good start since moving from sole traders to a CIC. Thank you!

  • Avatar Dev Akyuz ★★★★★ 3 weeks ago
    Graham has a wealth of knowledge and went beyond the original scope of the meeting, covering many more areas to support my situation. He explained the matters in a concise and easy to understand way. Would highly recommend!
  • Avatar Karim Gouhar ★★★★★ a month ago
    We have had a great experience with Jake Holdroyd who has assisted us with some fairly complex accounts across our various entities. His professionalism, prompt responses and expertise is excellent. Jake is a credit to Mercian Accountants.
  • Avatar Rowan Bartram ★★★★★ a month ago
    My first impression is of a prompt and professional service from Mercian accountants.
    Leo has helped me, not just correct, but to understand the amendments necessary in Xero software. He has made himself available to my queries going forward and this has really boosted my confidence. I am looking forward
    … More to our future with Mercian.
  • Avatar Harry Alford ★★★★★ a month ago
    Fantastic company to work with particularly Leo. His attention to detail is outstanding & would throughly recommend him. Thanks for all your hard work!
