Howell, Morris & Cole


Space you can see...

....time is invisible

But not to accountants.

They can see it and hear it on the ticking clock.

An hour of time could cost you upwards of £100

Howell Morris & Cole aren’t clock-watchers

A Different Approach

We like to be different.

Our fees aren’t linked to the minute hand, so we have time to listen. It’s important to get to know you and your business. Only then can we give you the help and advice you need.

Why get lost in the tax and accountancy maze? Let us guide you through it.

The less time you waste on something you don’t understand, the more time you have to earn money.

Meeting and talking with clients is the best part of our job. Most of them have been with us since we opened our office in 1990. Many of them we class as friends, and we do our best never to let them down.

Get in touch and we’ll give you an idea of what we can do and how much it will cost.

Small is Beautiful

We are a small firm that tries to make a big difference

Are you a small to medium – sized business?

Why would you want a large firm of accountants with big offices and overheads that you ultimately pay for in high fees? We specialise in smaller businesses, because it’s what we do best.

What we do

We certainly can’t do this

But we can do this:


    Do you need to return details of property rental income to HMRC? Or claim a tax refund? We can save you the headache for a cost much lower than you might think. For example, a basic self assessment tax return, to include the preparation of a property rental income statement and submission to HMRC online, would currently cost you around £165 (including VAT.)

  • Accounts

    We prepare accounts for small and medium sized owner-managed businesses, to include sole traders, partnerships and limited companies.

  • Auto enrolment and payroll

    If you are an employer with at least one employee you are required by law to provide a workplace pension, subject to qualifying criteria. We can do as little or as much as you want to lesson the pain of yet another layer of business compliance.

  • VAT

    We prepare and file VAT returns if requested.

  • Construction Industry Refunds

    We obtain any refunds due on behalf of our subcontractor clients quickly and efficiently.

  • General tax advice

    If we can’t provide a definitive answer to a question, we use experienced tax consultants who will be able to resolve the problem.

  • Professional Fee Protection Insurance

    If HMRC choose to enquire into your tax affairs, it can be a long, time-consuming process and incur sizeable professional fees.

    We offer all our clients the option to take out insurance that will cover them for the cost of our fees in handling any tax enquiry.

How We Charge

Fairness is subjective: what’s fair for one person isn’t for another.

But we believe you will pay us a fair price for what we do.

You tell us what you need and we quote you a fixed fee, reviewed annually to take into account business growth and any additional work you would like us to undertake. Before making any commitment to us, you always know what your accountancy costs will be.

A fair price from accountants you feel comfortable with. What’s not to like?

Over time, that’s how we build long-term client relationships.
