Michael, Cumbria

Mike, Essex

“I had been self-employed for a number of years and wished to operate through my own limited company. James explained the process, the services he could provide and the costs involved. He then set up a limited company for me and guided me through the steps involved. He advised me on payroll, book-keeping and corporation tax issues. Annually he advises on all appropriate issues and throughout the year keeps me informed on relevant matters that arise. He also assisted with the preparation of personal tax computations for myself and my wife. My company has now been trading successfully for nine years and James has been a consistent support throughout this time.”

“We were really grateful for the way Melville and Co responded to us when we had to find an auditor quickly. They have quickly grasped the regulatory requirements and have understood the difficulties a small credit union has in managing them. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the main point of contact has always been first class, and the price is fantastic given our circumstances.”

Preparation and audit of limited companies – James has helped in every aspect of the business.

Chris Benefield

“Melville and Co have been accountants for myself, my wife and our three business for some 10 years. We have always found them extraordinarily helpful in their professional role. Both myself and my wife are “innocents” in financial matters and have often set Melville seemingly impossible problems to solve on our behalf. Their knowledge of the complexity of the company and tax law seem enormous, while their patience at our ignorance is that of Job! Their help in many respects has ‘saved our bacon’ time and time again. To anyone seeking accountancy or tax advice I can only respond that you cannot be without their help and guidance, irrespective of the size of your problem.”

Elizabeth Nuttall

“Melville and Co have dealt with my personal and business accounting for over twelve years and throughout that time I have never been anything but satisfied with the service the firm provides. My affairs are always handled with efficiency and discretion and the advice I have received has been first rate. The staff are courteous and quick to respond to any enquiry. I can recommend Melville and Co without hesitation to anyone needing a good accountant.”

Ian Palmer

“One evening, after 5:00pm, I arrived at Trinity Enterprise Centre with some late personal tax information and could not gain entry to the building. I waited until someone from Melville and Co came out, on the way to their home. They immediately recognised me and took my papers back to their desk to place with the rest of my personal papers, thus saving me a second visit. I was most grateful for their helpfulness.”

Arne Wood – Operations Manager of “Feed My People” (Charity)

“It was great to see you recently, and many thanks for a wonderful service and most excellent feedback about improving our financial controls system.”

Ralph Spours – Estate Agents, Ulverston
