Fisherman’s Friend
"We have found over the many years of using Jones Harris that they are committed to growing their own company by helping us to grow ours. They have consistently proved themselves to be thoroughly professional yet extremely approachable, and these attributes have been invaluable in our association with them. We are happy to recommend Jones Harris very highly."

Tony Lofthouse Joint Managing Director

Trevors Warehouses
"I have to say how impressed I was at how your firm, and Andy Liddle in particular, handled a recent routine tax investigation into the company’s affairs. As always your firm were extremely supportive and highly professional and yet again delivered that excellent service we have grown used to over the last 30 years or so. It is comforting to know that I am with a firm that has such an excellent reputation and cares so much about its clients."

Ken Hitchen Managing Director

Barton Grange
"We think you did a splendid job of the audit and accounts. We have found you unfailingly good to deal with and faultlessly responsive to all our requests for assistance. We were pleased with your pro-active, potentially tax-saving, suggestions. We believe that we have had good value for money and are very pleased that you were clearly keen to openly raise the question of costs and to give an honest statement of your perception of the situation. In short we feel that we have laid the foundations for an excellent relationship, based on good old fashioned trust."

Ian Topping Director

K Coolers
"Jones Harris have been our accountants for over 30 years. They have always been totally supportive, shown a great interest in everything we do, and consistently delivered excellent service and given common sense advice. We went through a difficult trading period a few years ago but with the help of Jones Harris, who took an active interest in assisting us with monthly management figures and meetings, cash flow forecasts and realistic projections, we were able to provide confidence to our bankers to support us and since then business has flourished. We wouldn’t be here today without the skills and expertise of Jones Harris and we are deeply indebted to them. We are now the leading re-manufacturer of coolers to the brewing industry in the country."

Peter Worden Director

Fleetwood Town Football Club
"We are a local Fleetwood team and, like us, Jones Harris value their place in the community and have supported us over the years. In 2010 we had a PAYE audit which could have been very serious. The Tax Manager at Jones Harris guided us through the process and handled all the dialogue with the Revenue, and the outcome was better than we’d hoped for."

Phil Brown Vice-Chairman

Century Healthcare
“I moved to Jones Harris 3 years ago after being disappointed with my previous accountant's performance. I saw a number of local firms before making my decision. From the outset I was impressed with Jones Harris' professionalism and attention to detail. Every time scale they have given me has been achieved and, as the relationship has evolved between my company and theirs, I feel I now have an accountant who is on 'my side', is not afraid to deal with difficult issues as they arise, and is genuinely interested in seeing my company succeed. This ethos pervades from the top down and I can honestly say that every member of staff I have had dealings with has been nothing less than 100% efficient, professional and committed. I'm glad to report that excellent customer service is not a thing of the past. I know how hard it is in the current economic climate to run a successful business, and to become the market leader in private healthcare on the Fylde coast has not been an easy task, so it makes a refreshing change to have your accountant think the same in their approach to business as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jones Harris to any potential client. They have been integral to my company's continued success and I am confident that they will continue to do so for many years to come.”

Jeremy Heney Managing Director

Smiths Equipment Hire
"When choosing our new accountants we wanted a local firm who really cared about our business, and with Jones Harris that's exactly what we got. They took a genuine interest in our firm, their skills dovetailing perfectly with our needs and so making for a comprehensive and hands-on service. Charles Bryning's involvement has enabled us to take greater financial control of the company: our accounts are in order and I feel more comfortable with my accountant than ever before."

David Smith Director

Inghams Solicitors
"We were previously with one of the top 10 accountancy firms in the UK before we changed to Jones Harris. Their approach throughout has been one of common sense, down to earth, no-nonsense, no fuss, very straightforward clear advice; not always the advice that you perhaps think you want to hear, but it is the right advice for your business and that, at the end of the day, is what’s important. These are challenging times and having a good accountant on board is clearly essential because you need someone who can help you look at your business and the issues facing it, and help create a strategy for the future. Jones Harris fits the bill perfectly"

Bradley Burrow Managing Partner

 Inghams Solicitors at Blackpool, Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Poulton Le Fylde and Bispham

Elgin Hotel
"Moving our accounts to Jones Harris was one of the first decisions I made when I became involved with the hotel in 1982, and one of the best to date. They're very pro-active and supportive, and always willing to provide useful new ideas. I really value their sound, level-headed advice - they helped us a great deal when we acquired another business - while their management accounts service means that I always know where my business is in real terms. I've already recommended Jones Harris to many people, and I'll continue to do so!"

Nigel Seddon Director

The Elgin Hotel was “Hotel of the Year 2009” as awarded by “VisitBlackpool” and shortlisted for “Large Hotel of the Year 2011”
North Euston Hotel
"In my line of business, service is all-important, and Jones Harris clearly share the same approach. I'm delighted with the way they've handled my business affairs. I trust them completely – not just with essential accounts matters, but for the advice they provide whenever we have any queries. With Jones Harris handling my accounts, I can get on with my own job, because I know they're doing such a good job of theirs." Paul Spearman Director
Palmer Publicity Services
"We've known Jones Harris in one form or another for 23 years and they take great care of our accounts. We've always been extremely happy with the efficient service and vast amounts of assistance they've given us. In fact, they were instrumental in allowing us to purchase a new building for our business, and did a great job of negotiating with the bank on our behalf. We really would have no hesitation in recommending them." Noel Palmer Director
Fylde Stairparts
"Jones Harris have done an absolutely excellent job for us, providing the kind of service you always hope for but rarely receive. They aren't just a firm of accountants - they've put us in touch with all kinds of other useful business services, so they've been a great resource too. I'd recommend Jones Harris to anyone without a shadow of a doubt, as I've been delighted with every aspect of their service; even their prices have raised a smile!" Colin Cubin Director
"Jones Harris stepped into the breach and helped us out when things went wrong with our previous accountants; that was over two years ago, and they've provided us with a brilliant service ever since. Martin Wigley is always very helpful, as are the other team members, and we've received sound advice on a range of financial matters. When you call Jones Harris you never feel like you're being rushed - which is hugely important when you're making business decisions!" Jonathan Bentham, Director
Dunluce Dental Practice
"Moving my accounts to Jones Harris has had a big impact on my business. It's so refreshing to have an accountant - in my case, Martin Wigley - who reminds you of important deadlines in plenty of time, and who's happy to speak to you on the phone without charging you for the privilege. The whole team is so friendly, and you never feel a pest when you call for some advice. I'd gladly recommend Jones Harris to anyone looking for an accountant who's reliable, helpful and affordable!"

Jim Lord Proprietor

Square Room Estate Agents
"I have been a client of Jones Harris Accountants since 2009. From the start of being a client I have been 100% satisfied with the service they provide. Starting a new business was quite daunting for me but the staff at Jones Harris were always on hand to answer any questions. Charles Bryning and the staff are always professional, helpful, friendly and go the extra mile to help with any queries. The advice I have been given has always been beneficial to my businesses and I look forward to continue using their services in the future."

Paul Bayliss Managing Director

Budget Blinds
"After a bad experience with our previous accountant, Jones Harris came along at just the right time, and it's fair to say they've restored our faith in the profession with their friendly, attentive service. Communication is excellent every step of the way, and another benefit of having Jones Harris as your accountant is their network of support services, so even if they don't have the answers, they know someone who does!"

Carol Ineson Director

True Bearing
"I have been a client of Jones Harris for 5 years and they have been a breath of fresh air. It is good to have an accountant who you can actually speak to directly. Communication is consistently excellent and Martin Wigley goes the extra mile to take the hassle out of my accounts; indeed the whole Jones Harris team works pro-actively, frequently suggesting new ways for clients to save tax. Jones Harris recently helped me to incorporate my personal business smoothly and efficiently. I do, and will continue to recommend Jones Harris to anyone who wants to grow their business and is looking for a first-class accountant."

Mark O'Neill Director

Aspinalls Electrical Discount
"My father recommended that I hand my accounting matters over to Jones Harris more than ten years ago. I have never regretted that decision, and they now handle both my business and personal finances. With their combination of expertise and friendly service, they have become a real asset to me and my business. Whatever financial matters are on your mind, Jones Harris will deliver a winning solution – all accountants really are not the same!" Martyn Aspinall Director
Kiernan Construction
"Having worked for over forty years to build a successful construction company, we felt it was time to take life easier and give the family more responsibility. Most family firms will know that is not easy and the recession did not help. We had been through it before and knew with enough wool on our back we would survive but our input would be needed. Things started to look brighter in 2013 and with the renewed enthusiasm of our staff we realised help was needed to organise the transition to our retirement and we did not have it. Jones-Harris were recommended to us and from our first meeting we were all impressed and felt at last we had someone who could advise and answer any question we had. One year on we are all still singing their praises and with their expertise in all areas we could recommend them to any size of business be it large or small." Pat & June Kiernan Directors
The Rabbit Patch
“We moved our business to Wyre, and so moved accountants. We’d been trading for 17 years as a Partnership and Jones Harris advised us to become a Limited Company. They managed the whole process which was therefore quite easy on our part, turned our accounts round in no time at all, and saved us a considerable amount of money in the process. Add to this their advice and ongoing support and  you can see why they are by far and away the most efficient and approachable professional company that I have had the pleasure to work with.”

Jane Littlewood Director

Manor Nursery
"Charles Bryning has been my accountant since 1972; although our respective businesses have changed a great deal in that time, the service I have received from Jones Harris has gone from strength to strength. Every member of the team is approachable and, crucially, available to talk to. You can put a face to every name, and they provide a very personal service, which is such a rarity these days. Jones Harris have always done an excellent job for me, and I have recommended them to countless people."

Keith Beardmore Director

Poulton Van & Car Sales
"Jones Harris have acted for my business for over 30 years and during that time I have seen them grow to become  regarded as the premier accountancy firm on the Fylde Coast. I believe the reason for this is because of their commitment to delivering an excellent service consistently across the board and by giving their clients exactly what they want. They understand businesses and the problems facing them and are straight to the point in the advice they give. It is comforting to know that you are in a safe pair of hands and I have no hesitation in recommending Jones Harris to anyone. ”

Mike Ansell Managing Director

Melling Pharmacy & Richardson Pharmacy
"I changed accountants in 2003 to Jones Harris from a sole practitioner because I felt that I needed a firm of accountants with the wide range of professional services which I was starting to require. Jones Harris came highly recommended and I have been delighted with them since day one. Whether it be advice from corporate to personal tax planning or business advice through to strategic planning the advice given is always straight to the point and easy to understand. The service is excellent, all the staff are highly contactable and friendly and having access to a dedicated partner of the firm who understands my business and financial affairs in detail is invaluable.”

John Melling Managing Director

Number One Hotels Ltd
"Jones Harris have looked after three generations of the Smith family finances. What we consider so important is that not only do they understand and appreciate all aspects of our complex business and financial needs, but they also understand us as people: who we are, how we work, what we aim to achieve - and they never fail in supporting us along the way. As we have grown so have they, and a critical aspect of the service we receive is they are now a "one stop shop" and cover all elements of finance, so we know where to go for advice and help we can trust - which saves us time and effectively money. Jones Harris are definitely our Chartered Accountants of Choice and we wouldn't have it any other way!”

Claire Smith Managing Director

Karl Smith Car Sales
"I first met Charles Bryning as a young 7 yr old boy when he arrived at the house as my parents' accountant. I was shooed unceremoniously out onto the street to play while the grownups talked business. Fast forward 35 years, Mum and Dad have recently retired and I run the company with my brother in law, Darren Shillito. Jones Harris accountants and Charles Bryning have been a beacon of continuity and strength in an ever-changing business world, and have given our family wonderful service and invaluable advice over the years. We look forward to a continued and successful partnership in the years to come.”

Jeremy Smith Managing Director

Warren Tolley Productions Ltd
"Finding myself working away from home more and more and considering the recent increase in the cost of living generally, I soon realised that I was incurring fairly high out-of-pocket expenses associated with my travelling, general sustenance and overnight accommodation costs. I discussed this with Jones Harris and was delighted to learn that, using their experience and knowledge, together with my accurate records of all dates when I was working away from home, I was able to claim allowances totalling £3,450 which saved me tax of almost £700!"

Warren Tolley, Managing Director

Nick Bingham Plumbing and Heating
"I can always talk to Martin when I need advice and I like the direct debit way of paying as I don't then have any nasty bills at the end of the year. I am more than happy to recommend the Jones Harris team to every one."

Nick Bingham, Proprietor

“I’ve always been very happy with the service that I’ve had from the whole team at Jones Harris, and I’ve always had a lot of trust in their advice and guidance. In nine years I’ve never once questioned what they have done, or whether in fact they should have done something, and always trusted implicitly that they have given me good advice along the way – indeed they have always had the answer to my questions.” Jim Pirie Owner of A&B Laundry Limited until October 2012
4DX Media Ltd /
"We have been using Jones Harris now for over 6 years. We have found them very responsive to our needs, including some urgent matters from time to time.

You feel you're in safe hands with Jones Harris due to their professionalism and excellent reputation. I would recommend them to any business looking to change accountants or employ one for the first time.” Steve Barnes Managing Director 4DX Media Ltd /
Crossmoor Honey Farm
"May I take this opportunity to congratulate you on a member of your company. Jim Baker is the consummate professional, a delight to work with, informative, imaginative and in essence the image of a forward thinking and progressive business. I am greatly impressed by his approach towards networking, his speed networking events and his ability to draw upon a name or business that may be able to benefit my own. As a total package I cannot recommend him highly enough. I have placed my business with other accountants in the past and found them to be dreary and dull yet Jim has done so much for my business that I can only congratulate you for having the foresight in employing him. I have been so impressed by both him and Jones Harris that in the short time I have been a client of yours that I have recommended your business to many contacts near and far. Once again I thank you for such professional and personal service.” Dr Craig R Hughes Apiarist and Author Crossmoor Honey Farm
Windmill Group of Companies
"I moved our Group accounting and our personal taxation requirements in 2013 to Jones Harris after a disappointing experience with a Top 50 firm. Our Group and personal affairs are relatively complicated and I was impressed how Jones Harris quickly and comprehensively understood and handled our affairs in the utmost professional manner. Their pro-active approach is especially useful and appreciated, their service is excellent and all of it delivered in a straightforward and down to earth manner. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” Peter Whitehead Managing Director Windmill Group of Companies
Motortune Ltd
"Moving to Jones-Harris was without doubt the best decision we ever made.  Stewart Case has been outstanding and offers a very personal and professional service.

Thank you for everything you have and continue to do." Rachel Dickens Motortune Ltd
Potential UK Ltd
"Congratulations on your wonderful award - how exciting for you all! I totally understand why you won as I have always been incredibly impressed with the service I have received. I recommend you to anyone I speak to who needs a great accountancy firm... and know that at least two of those people are now clients of yours. It is a little tricky in my business as most people are directly employed and therefore don't need accountants - but I will continue to recommend you whenever the opportunity presents itself." Deborah Potential UK Ltd
Oboit Ltd
Let me congratulate all of you for the amazing award you picked up at the North West Finance Awards. You truly deserve it as you have been absolutely brilliant in looking after my finances for my company. The customer service from yourself and all of your staff is sensational; you always make a customer feel happy when contacting any member of staff - going all the way from the receptionist to the accountants; that's teamwork. Last but not least, you do offer competitive prices, especially for a limited company like myself." Ola Gustafsson, Oboit Ltd
Rowlands and Hames
"Achieved more in our preliminary meetings than we’d achieved in a number of years with our previous accountant. Jones Harris highlighted a number of areas where accounting practices could be changed to our advantage, gave valuable advice on company structure and managed to produce year end accounts in record time. So far so good, possibly we should have moved some years ago. No hesitation but to recommend !" John A Isles ACII Managing Director Rowlands & Hames Insurance Brokers Limited
