What our clients are saying about us

Tax is almost a pleasure

“Having dealt with our business affairs for almost 30 years, we see Jim as long standing family friend.  Occasionally other accountants ask to prepare our accounts for reduced fees.  I always say to them even if you were to do my accounts for nothing, I would still have Jim as my accountant.  Jim makes the very tricky subject of tax almost a pleasure.  He always returns my calls and I could not speak more highly of him.  I will never ring Jim up and say I have decided to change accountants!”

Richard Stokes, E Stokes Heat Treatment

A great sense of humour

“Jim Socci has dealt with my tax affairs for many years with efficiency, helpful advice, patience and a great sense of humour.”

They take all the problems away

“Jim has been doing my accounts for 8 years, and I couldn’t have coped without him!  They are a great company to work with, quick, efficient and very easy to talk to.  I would highly recommend J. F. Socci & Co to anyone – especially people that hate doing their accounts, they take all the problems away!”

Sally Humphreys, Actress

“Jim has been my accountant for 10 years.  Not being financially trained I found the whole business of being self-employed rather daunting.  Jim, as my accountant, has made my financial life easy and free of worry.  He advised me to set up a limited company and guided me through the process.  He has always been available on the telephone to answer queries and as time has gone on has patiently explained increasingly complex accounting decisions to me.  His work, to my knowledge, has been accurate, professional and timely.  It has been a great relief to know that Jim has been overseeing my accounts and he has been a pleasure to work with.  I have no hesitation in recommending Jim’s accountancy services.”

Mark AS Chapman, Surgeon

Socci & Co was extremely helpful on giving me advice for setting up my own business.  Mr. Socci provides and excellent accounting service.  He is always more than happy to answer my continuous questions and explains everything clearly enough for me to understand.  The service is 110% efficient and I know I can be at ease knowing my accounts are being well looked after.  I would highly recommend their services.”

Highest Standards

“Socci and Co have been my accountants both personal and professional for over 10 years.  Jim Socci has always provided the highest standards of professional advice to me personally, as a sole trader and now as a limited company.  He has up to date knowledge of the Inland Revenue systems and procedures and has advised me on how to deal with some complex issues relating to the company accounts.  He has explained the rules and regulations that must be adhered to in detail and in a way that I am able to understand, coming from a non-accounting background.

He provides prompt support and advice either  in person or on the telephone and the accounts and financial statements that he draws up are clear and professional I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others knowing that they would receive the same high standard of personal service.”
