What Clients Say?

I've successfully owned recruitment businesses for 35 years and David has been both my personal accountant and company auditor / accountancy advisor for the last 15 of those.

David and his team are always spot on with their knowledge, attitude, work rate and customer service and if they do need some external advice on specialist matters, they also have a superb team of external advisors to call upon.

I recommend David and Phillip Carroll wholeheartedly.

Bernie Wilcox

I have worked with David and his team now for 10 years, both for my personal tax and across a number of businesses I advise / work in. I have always found the culture to be 'can do' and focused on solutions that really add value. They are certainly well suited to small to medium sized businesses and do feel I get good value for money. I have also seen how PC has continued to invest in it's people and systems and that comes through in their service offer.

Andrew Rink

Phillip Carroll have ran my books for the past 10 years and I have nothing but praise for the way in which they have operated and communicated with me over these years. They have been there to talk me through the ever changing world of tax, be it via email, phone and when needed face to face. Tax is a tricky subject at the best of times yet I have never felt ill informed or have had any reason to worry that my accounts are in safe hands. I hope to have Phillip Carroll look after my accounts for many years to come as I couldn’t be happier with the service I have received.

Phillip Carroll are a friendly, helpful, approachable and professional firm of accountants.  They have helped me save money by setting my business on a tax efficient course.  They explain all my tax and accountancy queries in an efficient and easy to understand manner.

I am really happy with the service I  have received from Phillip Carroll for the past nine years.

Victoria McCann Altrincham

Dave made everything so easy for us setting up a company. Everything was always explained clearly and I was even taught how to do VAT returns myself which saved a lot of money.  I was recommended Dave by a work colleague and I have since passed on other friends to him. I would have no hesitation in recommending him again and I look forward to working with him in his new venture.

Tracy Chapman

We have been using [Rachel and David of] Phillip Carroll as our business and our personal accountants for some years now. We simply do not know what we would do without them. Not only do they have a total grasp of everything that goes on in our business and not only do they keep everything in good order at all times - they also work with us to make sure that all financial, cash and tax aspects of our business and our personal lives are in perfect, effective, and tax-effective order. There is absolutely no way we would have been able to have everything so neat and tidy and organised without them do their thing, their way. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any business or to businessman or woman.

Having worked with Dave for over 10 years, I know him to be hard-working and organised, always up-to-date with all the developments and creative in his approach.  It’s always been a great reassurance to know that my accounts are completely ‘right’ and that Dave and his team are at my side.

Consultant in NHS and private practice

Phillip Carroll have been our accountants for just over 2 years now and they support us across all our Group businesses. The team there are always great to deal with and their advice is always first class. Always approachable and quick to respond to any queries. They’ve implemented systems and technology that give me immediate up-to-date financial info which is really helpful. Just wish we’d moved to them sooner!
