Why work with us?
Ears to the ground of your success
Feeling listened to by your accountant is important.
We believe in making a real connection with our clients. In fact, without it, we simply won’t do business. The right fit means a two-way relationship, where you get great service and we get to flex our expertise and do what we do best. It’s that simple.
Whether it’s a quick 5-minute phone call or a face-to-face meeting where nothing is off the table, we pride ourselves on keeping our discretion and our advice working hand in hand, giving you the support you need to make your business great.
We’ve been looking after clients for some time now and it shows in everything that we do. You’re going to enjoy working with us.
A team of brilliant professionals
It’s cliché to say, but we’re really nothing without our team. Hard-working, compassionate, focused individuals who have come together to work as a great team. We’re so proud of everyone who works for us, giving them the support they need to deliver you a great service. They each have their own story to tell, which makes them unique.
Answering your questions
Don’t stress the little things. We’ve got you covered with some questions that you need answers to. It’s part of the service we provide, and if you need anything expanding on, drop us a line. Knowledge is power.
Are you very expensive?
We’re not the dearest, nor are we the cheapest accountants out there. You get what you pay for – a truly personalised and bespoke service.
Is it easy to change accountants?
For us, it’s easy, so yes. We’re used to it. We’ll contact your old accountant and guide you through the process.
Are all accountants the same?
It is a common misconception that all accountants are the same. But, nothing could be further from the truth. The word accountant is not a protected term in the UK. This means that anybody can call themselves an accountant.
The result is that many of the businesses that call themselves accountants are being run by people without any professional accountancy qualification. Often many of these firms and individuals are not regulated.
The directors of Harries Watkins & Jones are both members of the ‘Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and also the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). We’ve passed the necessary exams so we’re as certified and official as you can get.
Will I deal with the same people?
We deliver a personal service that is overseen by a director. Our staff retention rates are high, so it’s highly likely that you’ll be working with the same team.
Can I just have a chat to see if you can help?
Yes of course, and always without any obligation. We’ll never charge for the first meeting.
I am not based in South Wales can you still help?
Yes. Whilst most of our clients are based in South Wales, we act for people throughout the UK and even overseas. With the advancement in technology we’ll provide you with the same high-level service as if you were just down the road.
