Hi John, Thank you for your email and all the hard work and effort you've clearly made to get a grip on the tax avoidance strategies and to speak to your clients. I must say that I was very impressed with your understanding of the slides and the planning itself, which is incredibly complex and has baffled and confused many accountants!
Sally Fuller ACA CTA, Senior Tax Manager, The Clavis Group
The advice from Mr Harrison transformed our business. I carried out everything which the profit improvement plan highlighted as a problem and was guided every step of the way by Mr Harrison and his team. I can safely say that our business is now showing a very different story after just twelve months of hard work and major changes. The overdraft we built up over eight years took just one year to repay.
I would not hesitate to recommend the Profit Improvement Programme as it gives John Harrison a complete overview of any business and makes his advice correct and invaluable."
Emma Brown, Hackenthorpe Hall Nursery Limited, Hackenthorpe
It is great peace of mind for me as a small business owner to know that I can pick up the phone and talk to John regarding any of my financial questions and queries.
Not only does John Harrison provide sound accounting advice but also is really keen to introduce me to new opportunities and marketing solutions to help my business grow!
Fiona Greene, Greene & Clark Limited, Professional Clothiers, Barnsley
First class service on all aspects of running a business. Our bookkeeping is organised and filed in a way that is quick and easy to look back at invoices and payments. You do give peace of mind for a certain club secretary.
Brian Hudd, Carlton Working Men's Club, Carlton in Lindrick - CLIENTS SINCE 1950
It is a personal service and the number of people one deals with is small – one is always dealing with someone familiar. Telephone advice is genuinely free, and your staff are prepared to give as much time as is necessary. The service is reliable, and your staff do not make serious mistakes. You are clearly in tune with the local Revenue office, so are in a position to avoid problems or queries from this direction.
Neil Renshaw, Consultant Anaesthetist, Worksop
Good Customer Service is portrayed throughout, as shown in the way telephone calls are answered, as first impressions count.
Mick Macguire, Builder, Worksop
We have always found John Harrison and his staff very efficient and quick in our dealings with them.
Walter Mould, Langold Hill Top Club - CLIENTS SINCE 1940
It is very reassuring to have such professional service. There is always a friendly reception, either in person or on the phone. I know I can rely on the firm when dealing with the Revenue and I like having advice available as and when required in addition to my annual tax return.
Jane Spencer, Property Owner, Gainsborough
Very pleasant and helpful staff and John himself is always readily available to offer his personal advice on any problems I might have. To me this is the essential quality of a good local professional firm – good professional advice at the time you need it.
Flicky Hebdon, Property owner, Retford
I have always received excellent service from John Harrison and Co. Consistency of contact is important to me where John Harrison's staff can become familiar with any idiosyncrasy in our accounts. Professional friendly and helpful advice is supplemented by the availability of wide-ranging and innovative services.
Peter Wilson, Treasurer, Bassetlaw Conservative Association
Having decided to switch accountants and instruct John Harrison & Co about a year or so ago, it has turned out to be a wise move. Friendly, efficient service at reasonable cost, with John and his staff making them readily available and quickly answer queries have led to this customer being well satisfied with the service received.
Keith Barlow, Solicitor, Worksop
Telephone calls always answered quickly and pleasantly, quick response to any enquiry and useful business advice. Always there when we need you!

Quick, efficient, polite service, charges fair in relationship to work done. I'm completely satisfied with your services.
James Morrell, Farmer, Tickhill - CLIENT SINCE 1960
Very satisfied with your services. There is always someone on end of telephone to help, politely to make an appointment if no one available to answer questions immediately. I find that talking to your staff is reassuring.
Janet Stockdale, Property owner, Retford
Excellent all-round service provided. I particularly find the phone service you offer extremely useful and efficient when dealing with any enquiries or problems I have. I also like the way your terms and conditions are set out before you carry out any work, so that we don't receive any unexpected surprises.
Mr and Mrs S Tuttle, Property owners, Retford
I have been very happy with the friendly, professional service that I have received. I never have to hesitate about calling with any queries I may have. The excellent constructive tax and business advice has been invaluable over a number of years.

John Harrison & Co provide a swift, efficient and reliable accountancy service, with a pleasant and knowledgeable staff, willing when required to provide suggestions and answers for financial matters. I would recommend their services to my fellow professionals and friends when so required.
John Hall, Veterinary Surgeon, Dinnington
We are fast approaching our third year end with John and his team. Everything has been done efficiently and, very important, fees have been agreed upfront. Quick responses, pro-active service, what more would you want. The 'Freepost service', a small item but much appreciated.
Reg and Carole Bates, Oxton Shooting School Limited, Nottingham
A totally professional response to all our business needs, telephones or mails when he says he will and always takes time to explain in detail anything he believes we should know. Thanks for your help throughout the past year.
Darran Bennett, Road Transport, Worksop
Excellent service, staff helpful, very quick response
Keith Chilton, Newsagent, Leeds
You have been my account for I would think the last 30 years. I would not have stopped that long if the service had not been exemplary.
David Cox, Fish and chip shop proprietor, Worksop
Only thinking recently how far back in time our connection goes, back to the Rex Allott days, I believe we first met when I came to the office with my father to see Maurice Thurlin, was that when you were still training?
My father always had a good relationship with the company and I must say that has been the case with ourselves. The service you have provided has always been efficient, friendly an courteous. For this we are most grateful and wish every success for the future.
Richard and Kathleen Bower, WR Bower & Sons, Mansfield
They are very professional and are always available to help in any way to make you feel confident that everything is dealt with.
Tracy Davis, Professional Singer, Worksop
I think your suggested charge of £225.00 VAT is unfairly reasonable. I am therefore enclosing a cheque for £300.00 plus VAT, a total of £352.50. Ironically, I spent almost an hour with my solicitor a couple of days ago, and he spent most of that time extolling your virtues and saying what a wonderful accountant you were, with such phrases as "best in the world"......... this to me of all people, a person who is already the most appreciative of your help and advice.
I am so sorry that I have not written to you before now but you will appreciate that it has been a difficult year for me.
It has been over 60 years since my parents placed their accounting with R W Allott. They found them approachable, efficient and reliable as I have always found you to be. I do wish to thank you and your staff for all the help and valuable advice you have given me with regard to our Newsagency Business over the many years.
