What our clients say about us

"I would like to thank Ellis and Co for their very effective preparation of my complicated annual tax return over the past five years or so. They have been prompt, patient and professional. As the CEO of major companies for more than 15 years, including working overseas, my tax affairs have become fairly complex. Dissatisfied with the performance and cost of my previous advisers based in the South East of England, Ellis and Co were recommended to me. Although I have never met anyone from Ellis and Co due to distance, I feel I know them well and trust them to do a good job for me. When setting up my new consultancy business, I naturally turned to Ellis and Co to provide all necessary support, which they have done admirably."

"When I started Explosivo, I knew right from the beginning that I didn’t want to handle all the financial responsibilities. I love making films and telling stories, but working out my tax or PAYE contributions would keep me up at night. Ellis & Co were recommended to me by a fellow entrepreneur and from the very first meeting with John Farrell and the team, I knew I was in good hands. I wanted someone with experience dealing with small start-up companies who would be in my corner, looking out for my interests. They deal with the financial red tape, leaving me free to build my business, and focus on what I’m good at."
