WITH a focus on helping businesses grow and develop, Harris & Co Chartered Accountants have seen many clients enjoy milestone anniversaries, as well as celebrating a few of their own.
Founded by Phil Harris in 1990, Harris & Co was, from the start, determined to be more than simply a financial services firm, focusing instead on combining tax and accountancy advice with the kind of business development guidance that is so important, particularly to small businesses.
The client base is wide and varied, but is predominantly SMEs, and predominantly in Northamptonshire.
Phil Harris said: "I chose Northampton to set up my firm, not just because I was born here, but because I believed that it had strong economic prospects - even in the depths of the early 1990s recession! I have been proved to be right over the years.
"It's in everyone's interests that our clients get the right financial advice to help them to grow and do well. As someone who has started and run his own business, I have always felt that I had so much more to offer than simply being their accountant.
"We offer hands-on, practical experience, almost becoming a part of their team and understanding their business aims and objectives, so that we can help them thrive."
Training and staff development at Harris & Co has resulted in a team with an all-round knowledge, so whenever clients call, it doesn't matter who they speak to, help and advice is always available. In addition, a fixed-fee structure makes it easier for clients to budget and avoid unpleasant surprises when the invoice arrives.
"We've had clients with us since day one and that's very satisfying," said Phil. "They have seen us grow, just as we have seen them grow."
