Who Are Phillips & Co?
Legally anyone can call themselves an ‘accountant’ – you don’t need any training, qualifications or experience. With a firm of Chartered Certified Accountants you can be guaranteed of all three. Following years of training and experience we can help you make the most efficient use of your money and make your business grow. We are regulated by a professional body and bound by a Code of Ethics, meaning you can have total confidence in our professionalism. If you are unhappy with our work, you have recourse with a professional regulator who’ll investigate our professional conduct. We are required to complete continuing professional development each year. Our knowledge is therefore kept up to date and we understand how the latest regulations affect you or your business. We hold a practising certificate and professional indemnity insurance, meaning you are protected against work we perform that harms you or your business. Covering Chester, Wirral and beyond, we are passionate about providing small and medium-sized businesses with the service they deserve.
Managing Director - Terry Phillips FCCA, ACCA, BA (Hons)
Terry studied Economics at the University of Sheffield and passed the professional examinations of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants in 1974. He was admitted as an Associate Member in 1975 and was subsequently admitted as a Fellow of the Association 5 years later. Soon after qualifying he moved into the Accountancy profession by joining a large firm of Accountants at their Liverpool office. Following a period of time he was appointed Audit Manager. Terry later joined a firm of accountants based on the Wirral and worked there for 30 years. Terry formed Phillips & Co Accountants in Chester in 2012 as a sole practitioner. An increasing demand for his services and excellent client feedback led to a quick expansion of the business. This expansion continues to this day with Phillips & Co maintaining its proactive approach to accounting and tax and a move towards a completely digitally run practice.
