  • Avatar Lynn G ★★★★★ in the last week
    Highly recommended. Great service from Jake and the team. Jake always takes time to explain tax issues and procedures (in the simplified terms I need!) and responds quickly to queries. Won't be going anywhere else.
  • Avatar Linda Gardiner ★★★★★ 2 weeks ago
    I highly recommend Mercian Accountants. I've had a really positive experience working with Graham and Leo. They are very patient and explain everything fully. I have used Mercian for a number of years and will continue to do so.
  • Avatar Eve Gaut ★★★★★ a month ago
    Worked with Merican for almost 7 years now - a fantastic accountancy firm.
    Relationship has evolved from simple end of year accounts to VAT returns, full bookkeeping service and even support with personal financial matters.
    Very impressed with service levels. Graham has been fantastic from the get
    … More go - and more recently Leo has been a key point of contact for the bookkeeping and is super efficient and seen as an extension to the team.
    No complaints would highly recommend.
  • Avatar Andrew Dewing ★★★★★ a month ago
    I've recently joined Mercian after many years with a previous accountant. Despite the usual hiccups the change has been made much easier thanks to the assistance of the team there especially Elena and Leo.
  • Avatar Maryann Williamson ★★★★★ a month ago
    Great company, helping us set up, when its all new. Especially Leo and Natalie, who have been very helpful and patient.
  • Avatar Christopher Stone ★★★★★ a month ago
    Wholeheartedly recommend Mercian Accountants. Graham, in particular, has been wonderful from the beginning. He is knowledgable, professional and practical. His integrity shines through. Five years in we are looking to maintain this positive connection for decades to come. Thank you Graham and thank you … More Mercian Accountants.
