    I cant think of a bad thing to say about them! Great people, great accountants!
  • Avatar Ophelia Gillyon ★★★★★ a month ago
    I cannot recommend Graham Loosley highly enough. Very personable and extremely professional. Clearly knows exactly what needs to be done and works both quickly and thoroughly to reach a resolution. I was really impressed, not only by how quickly he had everything set up, but by how much you can trust in him, as he’s an expert who genuinely cares about delivering top-notch service. Resultantly, you … More get both efficiency and approachability! I found out about Mercian and Graham through a friend who was absolutely singing his praises and I am so very glad that I got in contact as I truly don’t believe I could’ve found anyone half as dependable, so if you’re reading this as a prospective customer, here is the push you have been looking for! I would recommend him equally to both people new to this sort of thing, as he’s excellent at explaining things in a way that makes sense, and people looking to switch to a highly industrious and competent accountant. I don’t think I would ever want to go with any other accountant now! Of note is how it feels like you can totally put all of your faith in him, and yet you never once feel like you’re “in the dark” about what’s going on, if that makes sense, which is absolutely fantastic, and probably exactly what anyone could ask out of an accountant! I would like to take this moment to say thanks so much for stellar accounting and I’d definitely come back to Mercian!

    I have been with these guys a couple of years now and have always found them to be efficient, friendly, courteous and they go the extra mile to help out with queries. Less expensive than my last accountant too...!!

    We cannot thank Graham and the team at Mercian Accountants enough for the support and guidance they have provided in relation to our family run property company.
    We have a portfolio of properties and Graham has provided expert guidance in all areas of our business ensuring we had a clear understanding of the options available to us in both the short and long term to help us with our financial planning
    … More for now and the future. The particular areas of focus were:
    1. Our obligations as landlords and the tax implications.
    2. Creation of a family investment company.
    3. Long term inheritance tax planning.
    Graham is able to explain extremely complex financial matters, including tax, in a clear and straightforward way that ensured we fully understood the options available and were able to make an informed decision.
    We strongly recommend seeking advice from Graham and the team at Mercian Accountants for all financial and tax related matters from both a landlord and personal perspective.
  • Avatar Abu Iyad ★★★★★ a month ago
    Everything is run smoothly and takes the headache away from keeping the accounts so you can focus on your business. The staff are all very pleasant and Graham's advice is second to none. Brilliant.
  • Avatar C R Hart ★★★★★ 2 months ago
    We were recommended to Mercian Accountants by a friend as we did not know any local accountancy firms as we had to have some CGT calculated.
    They initially worked with us over a year ago. In that time we were very happy with their services. They also acted for our children as well.
    For this tax year we had to prepare a finally CGT account.
    A year since we last had contact we needed their help again.
    … More This was immediately forthcoming.
    We cannot fault their commitment and service and can highly recommend them.

    Knowledgeable and professional. Very highly recommended. Graham and Peter can run multiple businesses for you, and also take care of your personal tax.
  • Avatar Nitsa pitt ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    We now have complete peace of mind knowing that Mercian Accountants are working for our best interests and have our backs.
    No one wants the disruption of changing accountants. 2 years ago we were forced to search for a new accountant because our accountant was lacking, unable to offer any advice. They just did the bare minimum annual tax return and never offered any advice or looked at the bigger
    … More picture-what’s the point of that?
    We are fortunate to have found Graham and his family at Mercian Accountants. Graham is one of life’s genuine lovely people, he is humble, talks in plain English so we can understand sometimes complex tax matters. Nothing is too much trouble and he is patient, repeating things if need be; He is approachable and flexible being available in person, video call and telephone (yes he has made all these available to us!) Graham is so knowledgeable and experienced, not just in accountancy but also with the bigger picture of estate planning and all at an affordable cost. Graham took the time to get to know our family and what we wanted to achieve and has made it happen. It went so smoothly and effortlessly that we then transferred our accountancy work to him. We have recently had the pleasure of meeting Graham’s son, Peter, who is as attentive as his Dad. So happy we switched to Mercian Accountants.
    Thank you Mercian Accountants for an outstanding personal service, we love you ❤️
  • Avatar Bradley Bullimore ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Graham has been very professional and helpful when I brought my 3 businesses to him to set up and manage. His advice and guidance have been priceless and as a new business owner in property, he has been extremely informative saving us making some costly errors. Would highly recommend Graham and his team to anyone in the property sector.
  • Avatar Craig Walker ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    I have been with Mercian accountancy practice for around 6/7 years, and during that time I have always found Graeme to be very approachable, professional, and extremely informative.I would recommend Graeme & his company to any business who requires great tax advice, and professional advice in all aspects of running a business.Keep up the good work
  • Avatar Amanda van der Berg ★★★★ 10 months ago
    Graham has been very helpful and has taken the stress out of preparing the first year of my business’ accounts. Thank you.
  • Avatar GRANT PENNINGTON ★★★★★ 10 months ago

  • Avatar reynolds boateng ★★★★★ a year ago
    As a start-up business, i have always been searching for a good accountant who will help me with my books to make right decisions concerning my business, Working with Mercian Accountant has giving me the great pleasure to do so. The quality of their work and good value has helped me to decide the right path for my travel business. Thank you Team Merican and Graham.
  • Avatar Oliver Norton ★★★★★ a year ago
    In all my years in business I have never come across a company like Mercian, without a doubt the most professional and helpful group of people I have ever worked with. In particular Graham and Peter Loosely are real standouts, their communication and customer services skills are the best I’ve ever come across, their consummate professionalism and expertise provided me with so much help with running … More my own LTD Company. They provided me with a huge level reassurance during the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak where as a client I felt prioritised and well looked after. Thanks to Graham I was able to find solutions and answers to any and all financial queries I had at the time. Wether its over email or over the phone, Graham and Peter are a delight to converse with and I simply cannot say enough good things about them and their amazing team at Mercian Accountants. This is a group of people who really care about their clients best interests, if you’re looking for accountants or any type of accountancy work then look no further. Very highly recommended.
  • Avatar Paul Williams ★★★★★ a year ago
    Mercian Accountants were a breath of fresh air following a bad experience I had with my previous accountants. Their rates are very competitive and I have always found them to be prompt, informative friendly and always on hand if I have any questions. As an IT contractor, the accounts are the bane of my life but having a professional and reliable accountant behind me has certainly take the stress away. … More I would be more than happy to recommend Mercian Accountants to anyone that asks me in the future. Thanks Graham and Peter
  • Avatar Mark Jones ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been using Mercian now for over 4 years and continue to be impressed at the professionalism, responsiveness and helpfulness of all the staff. We feel confident our accounts are in good order with Mercian working with us. The knowledge throughout the team is exceptional. Would recommend without hesitation 🙂
  • Avatar Neil Beckingham ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have used Mercian Accountants for our corporate accounts, including VAT, Payroll and personal tax returns for over 5 years. We have always found them to be highly professional and proactive yet very personable and approachable. Their knowledge and advice has been very highly valued as is their utmost integrity. In fact we have viewed Mercian as an asset and integral part of our business. Better … More than having an in house finance team at a fraction of the cost and trouble.
  • Avatar Rod Mitchell ★★★★★ a year ago
    I am very pleased with the service provided to my company by Mercian Accountants. As a small business I rely on external service providers to support me in areas like accountancy and tax advice so that I can focus on delivering good service to my customers. Mercian helped me set up the business four years ago and have provided accountancy and payroll support at very reasonable rates, but more than … More that they have been available with professional advice when I needed it. Mercian Accountants have proven themselves to be friendly, professional and helpful, an integral part of my business.
  • Avatar Robert McBryde ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an IT Contractor with a private limited company, I am delighted with the professionalism and service that Mercian Accountants offer me.Following numerous bad experiences with a previous accountant, a colleague recommended I make the move to Mercian Accountants and I am thankful that I did.Graham and the team are prompt to respond to any enquiries I have, taking the time to clearly explain my accounts … More and options available to me as circumstances change over time.I would thoroughly recommend Mercian to anyone in my network and l look forward to continuing to work with them.
  • Avatar Paul Gretton ★★★★★ a year ago
    I have been with Mercian for many years now. Graham and the team are fantastic and able to deal with my increasingly more complicated accounts as I add more areas to my businesses.
    Whenever I have a question or need some support/advice they are there ready to answer, I have already recommended them to several people and will continue to recommend them to everyone that needs any form of accounting
    … More support.
    They can work on a wide range of areas, so whatever your needs they will be able to support. If you are looking for professional, competent, supporting, highly knowledgeable and stress free accounting (and a great team of people), you have found the right place with Mercian Accountants.
  • Avatar Johnny Neill ★★★★★ a year ago
    Very happy with the service, I had super tight deadlines but the team at Merican worked round the clock to make sure my accounts got sorted. I'd recommend using Merican as I feel my affair are in good hands and I can count of them.
  • Avatar Dave Wright ★★★★★ a year ago
    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 Shrewsbury Taxis ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been using Mercian for a number of years now and have always found them to be helpful, professional and we would be happy to recommend them.
  • Avatar Stephen Crossley ★★★★ a year ago
    Direct communication to Senior members.
  • Avatar John Elcock ★★★★★ a year 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 … More 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.
  • Avatar Alain Justamond ★★★★★ a year ago
    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
    … More 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.

  • Avatar Duncan McGregor ★★★★★ a year ago
    They have been our accountants for 3 years now, and always easy to deal with. Helpful and knowledgeable.
  • Avatar Ben Jones ★★★★★ a year ago
    Excellent service. You are listened to and advice is given on that basis.
    Very knowledgeable whether using the service for either personal or business accountancy.
    Undoubted good value.

  • Avatar E New ★★★★★ a year ago
    Excellent service from Mercian Accountants, especially in the difficult circumstances of 2020. I was particularly impressed by the quick and clear responses to my questions. Highly recommended.
  • Avatar Karen Birch ★★★★★ a year ago
    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 year 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 year 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, … More 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.
  • Avatar Jonathan Cross ★★★★★ a year ago
    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.
  • Avatar Tina Teearu ★★★★★ a year ago
    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.
  • Avatar Ian Paddock ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Brilliant, no hassle service. Mercian have guided us through our first year as a LTD company in the construction industry and could not have asked for a better accountants, they have taken everything within their stride and provided a very concise, efficient and professional service for us. Brilliant value for money would definitely recommend.Peter, Graham and the team make everything personal and … More friendly and are always there to help when you need them.
  • Avatar Anthony wilkin ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    self employed driver tax returns done without hassle, definitely recommend to others looking for tax accountants with affordable charges.
  • Avatar Dickon Pitt ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    Graham and his team have in the space of a month restored our faith in accountants. They have been personal and professional and enabled us to file our accounts on time whilst working a very tight deadline, and even afterwards were straight back in touch to see if they could help with anything else whilst offering help with all our systems with the aim of making our lives far easier and our books … More far less complicated. A fantastic service and the start of a great long-term relationship.
  • Avatar Gary Tudor ★★★★★ 6 years ago

  • Avatar Patrick Cudmore ★★★★★ 6 years ago
    Great guys and very good accountants. If you are a sole trader, ltd company, partnership or just need accountancy advice give them a call.
  • Avatar simon trifunovic ★★★★★ 6 years ago
    Recently changed my Accountant to Shire, to be honest it was initially due to the costs (much much cheaper) but as with my business it can be a case of "pay peanuts,,expect monkeys.." but it is one of the best business decisions i made in 2015. Really smooth transition from old to new which Shire did all the leg work and my last years accounts were done and dusted within a matter of weeks! … More All carefully and simply explained throughout the stages. Very pleased.

    I was looking for a new Accountancy Company and after visiting several websites, I made an appointment to meet and discuss my requirements. I found the Company and its' surroundings very warm and friendly and offering very good and sound advice. I would suggest anyone else looking for an Accountancy Company to look no further.
