BEVAN CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS

Testimonials

We recently met Jannine over Zoom in September 2021, and we were delighted she decided to move from her Manchester based accountants to us; and within two months we had prepared her company’s accounts and her personal tax return.

I appointed Bevan & Co only recently and have been hugely impressed by their professionalism, expertise, and efficiency.
I really appreciate the amount of time and effort they take to explain their calculations, walk me through my company accounts step by step, and offer an opportunity for me to ask questions.
Highly recommend this team!

CLK Furniture is a limited company based in Macclesfield and for many years they have manufactured high quality kitchens and bedroom wardrobes. We advised changes to their share structure soon after our appointment in 2012 and since then we have been preparing their annual accounts and the directors’ personal tax returns and providing additional advice as and when required.

I would like to say that having used Bevan Accountants for over 10 years we have found them very accessible, accommodating, and friendly. And they have always been conscious of expenditure and deadlines, dealing with both business and personal tax issues.

We met Geoff and Christine in July 2020. They had sold a property and needed a Capital Gains Tax calculation as well as the prompt submission of a UK Property Account return to HMRC .
Please accept our sincere thanks for your help and continued support in resolving this difficult and complicated process in what has been unprecedented circumstances regarding the global pandemic. Without your ongoing assistance and expertise we are confident in saying that we would not have achieved this very satisfactory outcome and both of us wish to convey our gratitude.

We met Andrew almost ten years ago, shortly after he had incorporated his Estate Agency business. We submitted his partnership’s final tax return and have been looking after his company ever since. He has recently been able to save costs by undertaking his own bookkeeping using SAGE with our guidance and support.
I have worked with Bevan & Co for a number of years, having gone through several accountants prior to this time. One thing I particularly value about our relationship is Peter’s ability to make the complicated seemed really easy, he has a knack of explaining things in layman terms, which is certainly important to me

We met Helen for the first time early in 2020 and established that the best trading style for her new HR business was to form a limited company which we incorporated for her soon after.
Having set up my business very recently, I was nervous about my lack of tax/financial knowledge having always worked in a corporate environment.  However, Peter and his team took away that stress and gave me terrific support and advice on how to maximise my growth/profit . There were many times I called for advice on something and the team were more than willing to help and offer their expertise to help me when I needed it . Bevan’s took away the stress so I could concentrate on getting my business off the ground . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bevan’s for start ups who need a tax partner who can go the extra mile .  Helen Palmer | Sales Express Limited

Hallinan Change Projects has been providing transformation services and delivering complex business change programmes since 2013. We met Neil in 2021 and acted swiftly to prepare his company’s year-end accounts and meet the impending filing deadline.
Having been let down by my previous accountant and with only four weeks remaining before my annual accounts had to be submitted, Peter and his team provided immediate assurance that the accounts could be filed on time and backed this up with an in-depth analysis and presentation of my accounts. Furthermore, I was provided with regular updates and an in-depth review of the accounts before submission. My only regret was having not moved to Bevan & Co years earlier.

Prestige Logic are a dedicated IT Support company based in Hazel Grove and for many years they have provided excellent support to Bevan & Co.
