Practice profile

John Harrison and Co have offices in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. We are close to the major population centres of Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster as well as Nottingham and Derby. With modern technology, we are able to support clients in all areas of the United Kingdom.

We are a very different type of accountancy practice. We are different in two main ways. First, our sole commercial purpose is to increase the wealth of our clients and secondly, we believe in delivering and guaranteeing to deliver the highest possible accounting service standards.

Indeed we are unique in the accountancy profession in that we are the only practice that gives our clients a no quibble full money back guarantee. We  understand that our clients are the sole judge of our performance. If anything we do falls short of their expectations we will refund our fee in full without question, or allow them to reduce it to whatever level they feel you have received value for.

We specialise in helping businesses to become more successful. Using our skill with numbers, and the ideas of some of the world's leading business thinkers and achievers, we've developed a series of processes, systems and tools to help businesses become much, much more successful. We believe that our clients should always have access to the best business development support that is available.

Our Profit Improvement Planning programme provides a full Financial Performance Review of your business and benchmark it against similar companies in the same industry. Using tried and tested formulae we can show you exactly what changes to make to achieve the profits you desire. We can also help you write and deliver your marketing plan to help you achieve your goals.

Our Financial Management Service provides a complete outsourced 'back office' finance department headed by an experienced Chartered Accountant.. There are many modules to this service and they can be 'cherry picked' by our clients. These modules include bookkeeping, payroll, sales invoice generation, credit control and debt collecting, supplier payments, monthly cash reporting, nominal ledger reviews, arrangement of the most cost effective insurance and utility contracts, managing funding requirements, monthly financial reports and quarterly management accounts. Annual accounts and tax returns are provided free of charge for clients using this service.

We also believe that our clients should not pay any more tax than the law requires them to pay. So using our Tax Mitigation Service we plan our clients' tax affairs so that they pay the least amount of tax possible.

Our team members are our greatest assets so they have a lifelong commitment to learning and personal development. Of course, we all comply our professional bodies' requirement for continuing professional development (CPD). But we do much, much more. CPD teaches us to deal with the accountancy side of our business, but to help make our clients successful, we need a much greater range of resources available to us. So, each year, we agree a personal development programme with every one of our team members.

As far as our fees are concerned, they will always be agreed in advance with you and be subject to a written service order so you won't receive surprise bills from us.
