Hancox and Co has successfully looked after businesses across the north of England for over 30 years. The majority of our new business comes from recommendations from current clients – here are some of their testimonials.

“Hancox and co were recommended to me by a friend after I had a rather difficult experience with a large firm of accountants. I was greeted at the firm with warmth and understanding and this has continued since. I didn’t have any previous experience in business, and with choosing self-employment following redundancy I needed guidance. Joanna has always advised me in a straightforward way, she has been honest and upfront about any costs and these things make a big difference when trying to find your feet in the business world. She has helped my business grow from a sole trader to a limited company and has given invaluable advice along the way.  I would recommend Hancox and Co to anyone and look forward to working with them for the years to come.” Jocelyn Lodge, Go Go Coffee Co

“Joanna and her team were a great help when I opened my second restaurant. They worked through all complications of setting up a new limited company, leaving me free to focus on getting the restaurant built and ready to open. Joanna was even able to recommend a number of suppliers to help with the build! The team deal with all my accounts and payroll needs quickly and efficiently, so I can focus on managing and running two busy restaurants.”   Mr Lau, The Canton Chef

“I really like talking to Joanna, she makes everything sound straightforward and I can understand what’s going on and what I need to do” Steven Duncombe, SD Electrical

“Being self-employed I can get overwhelmed with my accounts, especially when I got an unexpected bill after being abroad for a couple of years. Joanna was able to calmly work me through my options and I ended up saving over £4000 on my tax bill.”   M Wilson, Joiner

“Joanna has been doing all my company accounts, VAT returns, payroll, CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) for many years, I visit the office once a month to drop off all my paperwork, usually have a chat about rugby, and leave knowing my accounts are well looked after.”   Andrew Baimbridge, Flooring specialist

“When my latest Self Assessment Tax Return got flagged for an enquiry I would have panicked, but I trusted Joanna would be able to get it dealt with quickly – and she did – with no adjustments!”   Clare Hill, Garden Angel
