In this section

We have been clients of Wilkins Southworth for over 6 years during which we have saved a significant amount of tax compared with our previous accountant.

During a recent lengthy HMRC enquiry into our affairs Chris showcased his skills and it was in large part due to his knowledge and robust approach that it ended with a great result. We have no hesitation in recommending Chris as the cleverest accountant we know.


Not only have I found him expert on the subject of English taxation, but his ability to investigate and work with Eastern European systems is also outstanding. His attention to the minutiae of a paragraph or sentence gives him the aptitude and knowledge to have the upper-hand on any tax-official to the great benefit of his customers...
