In May 2012, said about Morris Cook Chartered Accountants

We are London based company and our previous accountants were a prestigious London accountants who over charged us and were slow to take care of our needs. The Director decided that we should employ Morris Cook as our new accountants and payroll agents - and ten years later we have never looked back. Morris Cook has exceeded our expectation. The telephone support service that they provide is indeed invaluable to our organisation. I must emphasise how polite and welcoming Morris Cook are. I regularly call Andrew Clarke with questions from the mundane to the bizarre! He is always a pleasure and handles it in a professional but personal and informal manner. The fact that we are able to call up at anytime and ask for help on most matters is superb, as we either get an answer or are pointed in the right direction. Andrew Clarke is not just an accountant - he is genuinely interested in his clients and provides them with 360 degree services. He is a very competent and caring professional. Yours sincerely, Anita W

Morris Cook have been our accountants since we set up in business in 1993. What I value most about these guys is not just the sound professional advice they give us, based on decades of expertise, but the no nonsense way in which they deliver it. The Morris Cook strapline is 'not all accountants are grey' - couldn't be more appropriate. They are a colourful bunch of really likeable personalities who really know their stuff and actually make number crunching meaningful and fun for those who, like me, hate the boring but important 'sums' side of being in business! We've made vital business decisions based on their advice that have contributed significantly to our ongoing success. I heartily recommend them.
