What Our Clients Say...
David Greenslade, Hedley Greenslade
They have constantly been able to adapt as business changes, with up to date, concise advice and assistance, sometimes in the most difficult of circumstances.
Always friendly, where nothing appears to be too much trouble. I’d recommend to anyone requiring any accounting services.
Daniel, Steam and Clean
I’ve been with Zoe for about 15 months she is absolutely brilliant not only as an accountant but also as an advisor. She has been totally amazing and an important extension to my businesses and I would be lost without her.
Sue Oliver, Director at RainbowBiz CIC
I turned to Zoe over 15 years ago, when I was just starting out in business. At the time I was young(er) and a little apprehensive (absolutely petrified) of speaking to an Accountant. After that first phone call all those years ago, I have never looked back.
My relationship with Zoe and her incredible team has gone from strength to strength.
Together we have worked on building a successful social enterprise and I am so glad we have her input whenever we need support. From ensuring our yearly accounts are in order and drawn up, to keeping the payroll figures correct the team are always there for us. We often ask for meetings at short notice in order to help us with critical decisions and figures required for funding bids and monitoring purposes.
Whatever your needs are, I can absolutely guarantee you will receive a friendly professional service from everyone at Henry R Davis & Co.
I also want to take this opportunity to publicly thank Zoe and the team for everything they have done for me personally and RainbowBiz CIC over the years. THANK YOU 😊
Richard Minshull, Minshull Windows Ltd
Michael Stevenson, Utility Warehouse Distributor
This was realised when I sent over my accounts to her where she then proceeded to ask a few follow up questions and then clearly set out the accounts in an easy to understand manner.
I duly signed the accounts and returned them to Zoe to send off to the Inland Revenue.
The process was simple and straight forward, just what you would hope for when you are a busy earning a living.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Zoe at Henry or Davis and Co to people who are not getting the service they expect from their current accountant or have recently become self-employed.
Brian Loynton, Holywell Travel
Now that the furlough scheme has closed I thought that I should write to you to thank all the team at Henry R Davies for their help and support during a very difficult period for my business.
In particular I would be very grateful if you could pass on my thanks to Zoe Horswill. Zoe has managed all our payroll matters with the utmost professionalism and has always given me very sound advice on all payroll issues.
This support has been of enormous value to me, even though I no doubt drove her mad at times, it has been valuable from my point of view to have known that I had Zoe’s assistance and advise at hand at all times. I think she has been a credit to your company.
