A few years ago I was looking for a firm of local, professional accountants that would understand myself and my business and provide the services a small business requires.

I have been using the services of Phillips & Co Accountants Chester for a number of years for three businesses that I own, one as a sole trader, one as a partnership and the other as a limited company. I have found them to be extremely reliable, efficient and most importantly, easy to communicate with. I have recommended Phillips & Co Accountants Chester to others and have had very positive feedback with a number of them engaging them as their accountants.
