Helping our clients sleep at night

How do we do that? In a number of ways:

  • Working with our clients to help them do what they do best
  • Ensuring that they meet all tax and Companies House compliance deadlines in plenty of time.
  • Promptly preparing accounts and tax returns so that our clients have plenty of notice of forthcoming tax bills giving them time to budget rather than having a nasty shock a short while before the amount is payable.
  • Promptly submitting accounts, returns and declarations so that our clients don't have to pay penalties.

Working for and with You, Not the Taxman

You pay our bills not the taxman so it is only right that we look after you. We care about our clients, their business, their future. 

We’re here to make tax and financial planning easy. We’re here to help ease your financial burden and to find you the most tax efficient way to run your business. We don’t want the taxman to take what’s not his, so we work with you to find out what’s important to you.

A Different Kind of Accountant

We are approachable and easy to talk to. Every client benefits from a dedicated partner and member of staff either of whom they can contact and both of whom they will know and recognise. We get to know our clients, understand how they work and constantly help them to improve and grow their businesses.

We’re business advisers and planners as well as tax experts, and we work tirelessly helping businesses like yours save tax, and become more efficient and financially stronger. And we’re very nice people too. 

When did your Accountant last give you £50?

At Handley, Evans & Co we will deduct £50 from our fees for your tax return if you provide to us everything we need to complete your tax return before the 31st July after the end of the tax year. 

It gets better! If you are not VAT registered, the VAT saved will make the total saving £60!

Now isn't that a worthwhile reward for being prompt?

Thank you very much for all your help, I really appreciate it, You have put my mind at ease.
Many thanks for all your hard work
I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your support and help this year; it really has been invaluable to me
"After receiving a large tax demand I asked Graham to help me as I was convinced I did not owe this money. Graham not only proved it was the tax man's mistakes that led to me getting the bill, but he won every penny of my fees back, got me a large tax rebate and changed the policy for the UK for this year. That's what I call excellent service!

Many thanks to Graham and his team.
I sent the same email to five different accountants to see who's replies were the most knowledgeable and professional. You have definitely won.
Amazing, as usual
